Dishes: Okonomiyaki, kimichi fried rice, garlic/pork/beansprouts, shochu

Smoking: Yes

After the first day of the roller derby tournament in Okinawa, my wife and I were dead tired, but really hungry.  We started walking towards the main drag from our Airbnb and I saw a restaurant on Google maps called "red helmet", so we took a chance and veered off towards that.  It turned out to be a really nice, swanky izakaya with a great vibe.  We didn't mind the smoking because it masked the awful smells coming from our unwashed bodies.

It looks like they specialize in teppanyaki type dishes, including okonomiyaki, one of my wife's favorite dishes.  They also had several potato based shochus and I tried one out, much to my liking.  My meal was kimchi fried rice and garlic/pork/beansprouts which were ok.  The flavors were rather muted overall so despite the great ambience I'm rating this place an Ok.
