Ikebukuro: Okinawan
Miyarabi (Ikebukuro: Okinawan)
Open 5:30-10:45pm (LO). Closed Sundays, holidays.

This is Okinawan food as haute cuisine, with a good number of special Royal-style dishes in addition to the usual champuru stir-fries. Recommended dishes are the minudaru (tender roast pork with a sesame-based sauce), the rather lean rafti (braised pork), the Okinawan soba and the excellent peanut tofu. There's a short nightly performance of Okinawan dance at 8:30. Prices are a bit higher than the typical Okinawan izakaya; budget around Y6000 for dinner and drinks.

Toshima-ku, Ikebukuro 2-45-1, Ark City Ikebukuro B1F.
