Nothing beats an original. The saying goes for movies, music, and in this case, restaurants. Pizza House Sr. is where it all started. I’m sure If you’ve been on the island long enough, you’ve seen one of its offspring’s; the Jr. The Jr. is more meant for the typical everyday dining, while the Sr. offers an experience of a more elevated class with its picturesque atmosphere. Sort of like a place where a coat and tie would feel right at home. Let’s enter in.
The beautiful main dining area is defined by its luxurious décor of white satin laces and chandeliers. The table settings enliven the room further with the complementing oriental fan napkin display with the lined multiple silverwares. For the menu, you have the selection of the main entrée with most dishes served together with your standard soup and salad appetizers. They have their classic favourites such as the Crispy Pata (Pig foot knuckles) which the locals more commonly know it as Tebichi which in this case is served deep-fried. For their steaks, the selection is quite exquisite. This place is the only restaurant I am aware of that reasonably offers dry aged beef. Obviously, it’s still expensive. However, to consider having a steak in such a venue, might I suggest you accept and embrace the fancy? As they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Of course, I must not end describing the food without mention of the ever so popular Canton fried chicken. Almost seemingly honey roasted, this deep-fried spring chicken is an absolute must. Arguably, they do have this item in the junior restaurants but, it’s just not the same. Trust me on this one. The original has an almost smoky added flavour to it that changes everything. Pricewise I would recommend that you relive the flavour of the delicious dishes you’ve just consumed as you hand over your credit card to pay. Expect around 3,000 yen per person.
To get to Pizza House Sr., head south along route 58 until you reach Camp Kinser area. After passing the right turn that heads to the first entry gate of Camp Kinser, look for a Kanehide supermarket on your right at around 1.5 kilometres. Across from the Kanehide will be a medium-thin sized sloped road which will lead you to Pizza House Sr. You can’t miss it.
