So much more than pizza!
Pizza house Jr. is a small, modern restaurant in Urasoe, only a short drive to Kinser, and located just behind a KFC. It has plenty of parking too, which is always a plus on Okinawa. I found it to be spotlessly clean, and very welcoming. The staff speak fairly good English, and, as with most places here, are polite and helpful. There is a big, glossy menu right outside, all with English translations and pictures, so you can size up what you want before you even set foot in the door. It’s touted as a pizza restaurant, but honestly this is only a tiny portion of what they serve.
Don’t get discouraged though, the menu is great! Though quirky, the selection means even picky eaters should be fine. Most dishes have a somewhat Italian feel, though there is also the odd Mexican inspiration and American in there too. I went with the beef stew doria, and my husband opted for the taco pizza. Neither of us were disappointed. The pizza was available in 3 sizes (he went for the 22cm), which turned out to be a decent portion, and it was loaded up with delicious toppings, all fresh. The beef stew was divine, and included a bed of rice topped with chunks of beef, stew sauce and drowned in cheese. It was also a generous portion, bursting with flavour and incredibly filling. Neither of us wanted dessert.
The drinks were pretty standard, and included a range of soft drinks and fruit juices. Prices were not too unreasonable. They have some competition with KFC right in front and a coffee shop next door. We paid around $25.00 for our meals, including drinks.
This was a great little find. It’s got a calm, cool vibe, perfect for a quiet couples dinner or a business lunch.
