Gabusoka Shokudo

A legendary Okinawa soba shop established in 1966

Okinawa soba is Okinawan soul food, and everyone on the island has their favorite Okinawa soba shop. Gabusoka Shokudo is a long-established and locally popular shop, with eight locations throughout the island and branches in Okinawa City and Naha City. Their signature soki soba is a must-try regardless of whether you’re an Okinawa soba fan or not. About 50 years ago, Genji Kinjo, who used to run a butcher shop and was the founder of this eatery, seasoned leftover pork ribs and put them on top of a bowl of Okinawa soba, leading to the creation of soki soba. Come and try their rich, unforgettable soki soba!
