What is Okinawa soba?

Among Japanese people, Okinawan soba is probably the most famous Okinawan cuisine. The noodles used are similar to Chinese noodles, and generally, tonkotsu (pork) and bonito are used for the broth. However, there are a lot of variations in Okinawa depending on the region. For toppings, spear ribs or pork meat is used with green onions.

There are 4 different types of soba in Okinawa, including the most popular Okinawa soba, Miyako soba, Yaeyama/Ishigaki soba, and Daito soba. The most remarkable difference is the type of noodles used.
