Pork tamago (SPAM & egg rice sandwich) is not the most delicious food invented by Okinawans, but it is undoubtedly the soul food of Okinawa. Every bite takes a back a moment in time to post-WWII Okinawa when survivors had to find a new way to live on a ruined island. Okinawans love eating pork, but the pork was a luxury after the war. So they took what was available to create a fusion menu. Pork tamago, Taco rice, cream soup, are Okinawan food icons resulting from the battle of Okinawa.
Sanbincha (Jasmine tea) dates back to the Ryukyu kingdom. Imported from China, Sanbincha was only served as a royal beverage at the king's palace - Shuri Castle.
Pork tamago + sanbincha, is not only the taste of Okinawa but also the taste of time.
