All of them are colorful and full of flavors, and they have a nostalgic taste like I ate during the summer vacation when I was a kid.
● 2nd place Parlor Minpika (Hateruma Island, Okinawa Prefecture)
A popular parlor on Hateruma Island. You can enjoy drinks and light meals while gazing at the blue sea of Hateruma. "Black honey special" is recommended on hot days. The sweetness of brown sugar, condensed milk, and soybean flour wraps around your tongue. It goes well with beer.
