A classic Japanese « western-style » diner that has been open since 1933. It is family owned and is now with its third generation owner. Okinado still serves many of their original dishes and compared to other western-style restaurants, Okinado’s menu items tend to have a more upscale ambience about them. For example, they cook with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and the hayashi rice sauce is apparently cooked down for an entire week!
The « omurice » or omelette stuffed with ketchup-chicken rice, is one of their most popular dishes and very tasty. For something really filling, go with the hamburger steaks, fried pork cutlets, or combo platter that let you try a little bit of everything. The desserts are also quite popular.
Like the menu, the interior of the restaurant remains much like it did during Okinado’s early days: old-fashioned decor, manager in suit vest and bow-tie, and vintage diner seats.
