Italian Restaurant with a View!
Grand Blue is set on a hill close to the EM Costa Vista hotel and has a view over Chatan down to the sea, inside a single house. It bills itself as the "Million Dollar View Trattoria" so how does it measure up?
We visited at lunchtime when the menu is a bit more simple and mostly features pizza, pasta and a meat and fish special. There's also a simple salad bar with tea and coffee also available.

Throughout my career, I've worked with women and girls across America to strengthen their self-confidence, I’ve had the honor of being employed as the first Life Coach to work at an HBCU (historically black college University), I’ve chaired county and city boards, I served as a Commissioner on the status of women and girls and the list goes on… No matter what I’ve accomplished or where I’ve traveled or whom I speak with, the core issue is the same. Girls need inspiration! Girls are conflicted about their value in this world. When girls are conflicted and feel bad about themselves, they disconnect from life. They avoid activities like going to school, social functions and often times, giving their opinion!

Love in Japan
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." So starts the famous sonnet by English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The West is well-known for expressing romantic love in overt ways, in poetry, visual art, and more recently, films and television. Japan, however, is a much older country with strongly held traditions and social rules about romantic love. In Japan, expressing love calls for much subtler demonstrations.
Read on as we discuss some interesting cultural tidbits about romantic love in Japan.

The latest unique and delicious addition to Sunabe's restaurants
We always like to see new restaurants that introduce unique flavours and products to Okinawa and CC's Chicken & Waffles certainly fits the bill.
They're located in Sunabe along the seawall on the ground floor below an apartment building. The restaurant itself has around 5-6 tables with some large enough for big groups as well as a bar area that the owner tells us will be available soon in the evenings.

Ignore the name – it's a great Indian restaurant!
With quite possibly the most confusing name for an Indian restaurant we had been avoiding this place because we weren't sure what to expect. The name conjurs up images of maybe a bar with small snacks but in fact although it does have a bar, it's actually a very good Indian restaurant.
Walking in we were surprised to find a tastefully decorated restaurant with hanging curtains, wall art and a fake tiled roof above the booths arranged around the sides of the restaurant. This gives a wonderful feeling of privacy and comfort whatever group size you are dining with.

Get the royal treatment and all you can eat, too!
The lunch buffet is on the first floor, just to the left of the entrance. We were seated right in front of the window with a stunning view of the Chatan harbor. The buffet itself is so big that the distance to the end and your table is quite far; I almost feel like you shouldn’t feel any guilt because you are burning calories walking back and forth. The restaurant is spotless and so clean. Everything looks perfectly organized and well designed.
