Those are the reviews for on-base restaurants we have here on the blog. I know we tend to promote eating establishments that take you off base and away from the comforts of home (and the drudgery of work), but let’s be honest: sometimes we don’t want to go anywhere that requires us to pull out our IDs and flash the gate guards*. (*…with our IDs. You understood that, right?)
What I’m saying is, if you rely on Okinawa Hai to guide you to your next local meal, those of you who live and work on Kadena are in luck! But if you happen to be on one of those “other” military installations we’re leaving you high and dry. And given that I’ve been to the restaurants on some of those bases, I know they exist. We just don’t have posts about them.
Help us out, will you? Here’s what we’re missing (and I may be missing some here):
Torii Station (Army): Coral Cove
Camp Shields (Navy): The Crow’s Nest Club
Camp Foster (USMC): Ocean Breeze, Lanai Restaurant, Butler Officer’s Club, Corpsman Cove
MCAS Futenma (USMC): Habu Pit, Thirsty’s E-Club
Camp Kinser (USMC): Surfside
Camp Courtney (USMC): Bayview E-Club, Hashmarks, Tengen Castle, Legends
Camp Hansen (USMC): The Palms
Camp Schwab (USMC): Beachhead
White Beach (Navy): The Port of Call Club
Kadena Air Base (yes, there’s more): Officer’s Club, Jack’s Place, AirPower Café, Rocker NCO Club, T-Bones Restaurant
And Camp Lester… is there anywhere to eat on that existent, albeit tiny, base? The residents and hospital staff there have to eat, don’t they?
We’re not looking for AAFES fast food restaurants; we all know about Taco Bell, Anthony’s Pizza, Burger King, and Robin Hood. (And Cinnabon, and Dunkin’ Donuts, and Baskin Robbins… mmmmm. *ahem*. Sorry.) We want to know about your go-to spot for a bite to eat that always take US dollars and only requires that you wear a shirt and shoes. (And pants. Please don’t forget the pants.)
If you have something to say about one of the eateries mentioned above (or another on-base food-selling-place that I didn’t list) click on over here to the Submissions Page to find out how to add your two cents to this little place we call Okinawa Hai. Do it once and you might get hooked; remember we pay handsomely* for posts.
*Handsomely = $15 = lunch and an Orion at your favorite sushi bar or 2.5 Orange Mocha Frappuccinos from Starbucks
