The coastal Teruma district is close to the Mid-Sea Road
and a major producer of Okinawa’s famous beegu (the common rush plant).
In addition to its traditional use in living spaces, such as for tatami,
beegu is now also being used for clothing and food.
Beegu has recently been garnering more attention as a nutritious food,
and there are now desserts being made with beegu as local specialty products.
“Ever since we opened 14 years ago, we have been striving to provide delicious food using local ingredients. We make sure to use fish that was caught within the city’s seaports and local vegetables,” says Zukeran, the chef.
What has been introduced here is only a small sample of meals that use beegu.
There are many other products available – be sure to try them!
