Local hamburgers are famous such as "Sasebo burger" in Nagasaki and "Betsukai jumbo scallop burger" in Hokkaido, but in my hometown Okinawa, "Goya burger" and "Nuyaru burger" using "Goya". There is something. This time, I went to Okinawa's fast food chain "Jeff", which offers these, and I will introduce them because I actually ate them.

Drive on Prefectural Road 231 Naha Airport Line from Naha City in Okinawa Prefecture to Tomigusuku City for about 15 minutes, and after passing through the residential area, you will see a sign like this on your right.

The words "Goya burger, Nuyaru burger jef"!

Yes, this is the Okinawa-born fast food chain "Jeff" (Tomigusuku store). As you can see from the signboard, "Goya Burger" and "Nuyaru Burger" are Jeff's representative hamburgers. You can eat at 4 stores in the prefecture.

The characteristic of the Tomigusuku store is the spacious entrance to the parking lot. The store has an American atmosphere.

"Nuyarubaga" in "Nuyaru Burger" is an Okinawan dialect of "What!" Originally used when giving up people. At the time of the new release of "Goya Burger", the catchphrase of the TV commercial was "Nuyaru Baga" with "Baga" and "Burger" at the end of "Nuyaru Baga". ! This burger!) Goya burger! ”, The idea and deliciousness of the burger attracted a lot of attention, so it seems that it appeared as“ Nuyaru burger ”two years after the release of Goya burger (1995). ..

The contents of interest are "Goya Burger" with roasted pork luncheon meat. It has pork, eggs, and bitter gourd, so it has a goya champuru-like taste. The mayonnaise and cheese are well entwined, and it goes well with the upper and lower buns with sesame seeds.

■ Bonus--Jeff is perfect for a short break during the drive


Three of Jeff's four stores on the main island of Okinawa are in "drive-in" format. In addition to eating and drinking in the store, you can enjoy your meal even while you are in the car.

What is "drive-in"?
It became popular in the United States in the 1950s with the development of motorization. In the United States, there is a drive-in theater where you can watch movies while you are in the car, a fast food restaurant where you can order and eat, and a Ferris wheel where you can ride the whole car.

On the other hand, in Japan, it refers to a rest area with a parking lot (close to the rest area in English) or a commercial facility provided on the side of a road with heavy traffic, or a restaurant with a parking lot especially along the main road. Is shown. ― (Reference: Wikipedia )

In other words, in the United States, it will be a facility where you can enjoy entertainment and meals while you are in the car, and in Japan, it will be a commercial facility / restaurant equipped with a parking lot along the main road. In the case of Jeff, like a drive-in in the United States, you can order and eat while you are in the car. By the way, in Okinawa prefecture, you can enjoy the same drive-in at the fast food restaurant "A & W".

To order, use the dedicated intercom installed in each parking space. Press the button and the clerk will respond. They will listen to your order and bring the item to your car. At that time, check out.

Please park according to the position of the car window!

After receiving the product, you can eat it on the spot or take it home. You can enjoy your meal with your family or couple while watching TV, listening to the radio or music in the car. I often see it used by taxi drivers.

There is also a terrace seat in the "Jeff" sill. Great for sunny days. It seems to be good when you want to take a rest during the drive.
