Me & You is where trends are set for dining and entertainment

One of the trendiest districts in Okinawa is the landfill area known as Hamby and Sunabe in Chatan. The area boasts a large number of restaurants that offer a wonderful variety of dishes. And some of them also feature live music performances. Me & You restaurant opened only a month ago, but it is well prepared to take on all competition. Besides offering delicious dining in trendy settings, and nightly live music, it has something that no other establishment in Okinawa has, a 5-color laser that can create computer controlled beams of every color and shape, and even live images.

Me & You Front Manager Kenny Gray says that when he bought the laser, he really didn’t know what he was getting. As it turned out, the machine is so powerful that similar machines are usually used in large concert halls and outdoor stadiums. It is powerful enough to cast a beam of light over a distance up to 20 kilometers. Gray says that the idea is to offer customers something they can talk about later. Of course, the idea is that they talk about the place with friends and prompt those friends to pay a visit also.

Me & You offers two distinctive type of meals, Italian and barbeque, and all full meals are priced between ¥950 and ¥2,000. The Italian-style dinner sets include “Sauteed snapper stuffed with mozzarella cheese sauce (¥1,450 for dinner set), and “Baked chicken stuffed with avocado cheese (¥1,280) which Gray says is one of the most popular items on the menu. Sauteed filet mignon steak with red wine sauce costs ¥2,000 as a set, and is the most expensive item on the menu. All dinner sets include soup and salad, but everything can be ordered without at reduced price.

Pasta dinners come with salad and bread. We tried “Short Penne pasta cooked with creamy salmon sauce” (cost alone ¥750 and ¥980 as a set) and can vouch that it is one of the most delicious dishes we have tasted. Other pasta includes “Italian Vegetable Pasta with Herbs (¥680/¥850) and “Pepperoni Chino” (¥580/¥650). Barbeque meals include Hot Wings (¥600), Baby Back Pork Ribs (¥750) and Lemon Buttered Prawns (¥700).

As is fit during this year-end party season, there are several party packages, like “All You Can Eat” starting from ¥2,000 per person and “All You Can Drink” from ¥1,000 per person. Me & You is open from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. The live band performs five shows each night. And the place’s trademark Laser Show is also on five times a night.
