The Fine Art of Menus

by Pa Rock

Dining on Okinawa tends to be a very graphic experience.  In order to cater to a culturally diverse population, restaurant menus contain pictures of every food item, along with lengthy descriptions.  It is not unusual for a menu to be ten to twenty pages in length.  Also, most restaurants have large signs outside of their doors which advertise the main courses served by the establishments along with photos.  Attached are photos from a couple of food signs outside of restaurants on Kokusai Street in Naha.
