Tasty, authentic Japanese cuisine now at low prices

Date Posted: 2008-10-10

Seafood lovers are in for a special treat at an Okinawa City restaurant that prides itself on both a friendly atmosphere and a varied, yet authentic range of Japanese entrees.

Maguroya specializes in seafood, with master chef Hideki Moriyama transforming ordinary foods into culinary masterpieces. Moriyama, who honed his skills during ten competitive years in the Osaka restaurant trade, knows traditional Japanese cooking from the ground up, and loves blending savory fresh ingredients to offer Okinawa that perfect taste.

Moriyama and Maguroya are now offering all hand-formed sushi at half price through the end of this year, a part of their 5th anniversary celebration. Both at lunch and dinner times, Maguroya offers a diverse menu that includes sets and ala carte entrees.

Lunchtime favorites include varied seafood donburi, (a bowl of rice topped with seafood), tuna bowl, a sea bream bowl with fresh egg yolk, and salmon and salmon roe bowl all for ¥750 each. Set lunches featuring baked fish, sashimi and a daily appetizer are ¥850. Moriyama makes sure all lunch specials are served with free rice and miso soup refills.

For those not really caught up in the excitement of seafood, Maguroya offers set meals with assorted skewered cutlets or choices of tempura as the main entrée, all at the same prices. There are many non-seafood dishes on the menu, including fried rice with chicken, potato and bacon crispy salad, Okinawa’s goya champru, and even plates of savory beef steak.

Maguroya is tucked into an Okinawa City neighborhood. Travel east on Route 23 to Okinawa City, turning right at the intersection adjacent to Gate 5, then making a left turn at the three-way intersection up the hill. Look for the sign saying Tuna House Maguroya on the right. The street address is 3-2-5 Yamazato, Okianwa City. Reservations are available at (098) 930-0422.

The restaurant is open 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch, and 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. for dinner. Maguroya is closed on Mondays. The restaurant accepts U.S. dollars, and has parking available for a dozen cars.
