After my visit to Okinawa, I fell in love with Okinawa cuisine. It's different from other parts of Japan...Okinawa doesn't focus on sashimi, beef or any fancy/cute dishes. Okinawa focuses on vegetables, fruits, beer and pork. Tried several restaurant who claimed themselves as "traditional" Okinawa cuisine but nothing appealed me or bring me back that taste till I pass by Rakuen.Looking at the menu, my eyes was sparkling. The menu dishes looks like the ones I ate in Okinawa! Stir fried Bitter

Stir fried Bitter Gourd with Pork $88
I'm not a huge fan of bitter gourd as I don't like the bitter taste. There's two kind of bitter gourd I like....Taiwan and Okinawa ones. The bitter gourd is thinly cut, it is fresh and crunchy. Undercook eggs mixed with bitter gourd and pork. Eggs is soft and smooth. I found my Okinawa taste buds again!
Okinawa Chicken Roll with Beefsteak and Plum $65
There's no fat under the chicken skin. The outer is crispy while instead(meat) is tender and juicy. The plum sauce is a perfect match with the chicken. A little sour brings away the greasy taste!
Sweet Potato Tempura $68
I love this dish!!!! I tried many different kinds of purple potato in HK but the taste is different. The texture and it doesn't taste have purple potato taste. This dish is so satisfying! The potato is soft/mushy with strong purple potato taste.
Okinawa Pineapple $48
Okinawa is hot year round which makes it a suitable place to grow pineapples. The pineapple is hot, sweet and juicy!
What a satisfying Friday dinner!! Will recommend to friends who love Okinawa cuisine.
