American Kitchen is a recently opened fast food place for one-stop delicious meals. Ordering take-out here is easy – I called ahead and by the time I got there it was ready! Piping hot and oh, so tasty! From the menu you can select several kinds of pizza, including fresh sausage, pepperoni and four kinds of cheese. They also have beef sandwiches on a fresh hoagie bun, tacos, taco rice, beef curry stewed to perfection and full of flavor, and chicken Thai curry.
I have personally enjoyed their BLTs, ham and cheese melts, clam chowder and minestrone soup. The restaurant is run by the same folks who own the Rose Garden, and they guaranteed my food to be fresh and prepared to my liking. I was able to ask for extra mustard for the beef sandwich, and a cappuccino topped with foam.
I think you will find, as I have, that there is such a variety of choices for your lunch and dinner. You can also buy imported potato chips, jams, and chilled beer. It is a little taste of food heaven just to be there.
Oh, and before I forget, the pancakes are to die for – soft and fluffy, topped with whipped cream and berries, or caramel apples. I will be back for more after tasting these superb dishes.
The diner-like atmosphere is so pleasant, and if the weather is nice the terrace with tables and chairs is available. Soft music is playing as a pleasant crew awaits your every request. The young Okinawan servers are so polite and the inside is immaculate.
Directions: From Kadena gate 5, go straight across Route 23 and continue straight. You will pass a Mr. Donut on the right. As soon as you pass it, look to your left and you will see A Price Supermarket. American Kitchen is right next to the supermarket, just before Lawsons.
Hours: 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
