Nice weather. I’m in Okinawa for the first time in two years. I’m going to Okinawa vegan food festival today. I’ve just arrived. Falafel. Herb curry. Island dessert. So many people are in line. Coffee. Hand drip? Yes. It’s organic Peruvian coffee. From Peru? Yes it is. Which part of Peru? We use Peruvian blend and Montagna veronica. You’ve been there recently, right? Yes yes. It’s about 6 months ago. Oh my god, I got goose bumps. How was it? did you enjoy? Yes I enjoyed a lot. Montagna veronica coffee is from the same area of Machu Picchu. I was there. exactly the same place. This is the winter blend. I added a hint of cinnamon. Okay. He gave me coffee. Thank you. You’re welcome. Keep up the good work. I’ll continue to watch your videos. Thank you so much. Hey mom! This is so expensive, isn’t it? Falafel Pita sandwich. Firewood kiln pizza. Felicidad. This is Felicidad cafe. Thank you so much.
We’re selling vegan gluten-free donuts and cookies. All of them are gluten free? Yes they are. Is that all? Well, We also have cold drinks. Yes… lots of… tasty drinks. Have fun. Thank you so much. Vegan cheese burger. Elly’s cafe. What are you selling? Taco rice. Can I get your autograph? Sure. Can I get it now? What kind of award did you win? It’s a local specialty food award in Okinawa. We won the best award. That’s because you use Okinawan Tofu in it? Yes, and we also use Okinawan sugar as well. We use lots of Okinawan local ingredients. I see. It’s taco rice made with Okinawan ingredients. You don’t have to shoot me explaining about this. This is Anoma protein. In Japan, the mainstream of vegan protein is soy protein. This protein is made from yellow pea. We have many vegan customers. the most important point of this product is that it contains yellow pea protein and brown rice protein. Yellow pea is a bit low in protein, and amino acid score isn’t that good. so we decided to add brown rice protein which contains methionine. Because of that, this protein achieved high amino acid score. we also add BCAA in this product. I’ll taste this. I know this taste. sometimes vegan protein tastes awful. How is this? It’s good. Thank you so much. This is Kevin’s store from Taiwan. He seems busy. It’s green bean cake. Thank you. This is Snow ball. It’s made from almond, brown rice and coconut. Thank you. Good morning. I’m totally free today in Okinawa. My friend Dante lives in Okinawa. This is issued by Okinawan government. Vegetarian restaurant guide written in English and Chinese. Dante is taking me to… We came to Cafe Halcyon. What’s your recommendation? If you want something sweet, PB and chocolate crape is a good choice. if you want savory thing, I recommend Garden crape. You serve savory crape as well. Yes, we also have cheese crape. What cheese? mame ma-ju mame ma-ju? What’s that? It’s from the company in Osaka? it’s on market? I knew it when I first ate it. Best vegan cheese in Japan. do you think I can get it in Kyoto? you can get it online. I’ll check that out. I order it from the local company. It’s really good. It melts just like cheese. Does it stretch? It kind of… It doesn’t stretch, but it melts. Don’t expect too much. you have coffee too. Excellent. Thank you. Here you go. halcyon sandwich. What is this, Dante? Oh, wait. let’s have Ms, Honda explain. Me? This is Halcyon Sandwich. Enjoy. This is your recommendation? Yes. This sandwich is huge. It will make you full. We can handle that. I enjoyed Okinawa pretty much. There’s a ceramic store which I always stop by when I visit Okinawa. Mogfmona no Zakka. I buy some ceramics every time I go to Okinawa. I’ll show you what I bought this time. small plate. another small plate. small round plate. one more. All of them are made by the same ceramic artist. But I forgot the name of the artist. This is Chawan(a small bowl for rice). But I thought this is great for Matcha. It looks just beautiful. This is my favorite. I haven’t used it yet. I didn’t shoot anything, but there’s a chocolate shop in American Village. It’s called Timeless Chocolate, run by Mr. Hayashi. I had their chocolate for the first time in two years. It’s the best chocolate in the world. And lots of vegan and vegetarian friendly cafes and restaurants have been opened since two years ago. Some of the vegan cafes have closed down though. I think Okinawa is really vegan friendly place. Why don’t you visit Okinawa? Bye!
