Sata-andagi (Okinawa’s doughnut)



Sata-andagi is a traditional Okinawa’s roll-shaped doughnut. 

Okinawa’s sweets are descended from Chinese and Japanese traditional sweets.  Sata-andagi has a taste of home and my favorite sweets.  And I LOVE Okinawa food very much!!!

Story about Okinawa and Okinawa Food

Okinawa is southernmost prefecture in Japan and has very different and original culture.  

In the local food, Okinawan food (or called as Ryukyu food) which spreads or popularizes through Okinawa Prefecture, developed a unique gastronomic culture.

As the factor of the difference of the gastronomic culture, the fact that there was a difference in the material which is used from the climate being different from the other area or region in Japan, the fact that the historic ground as it was an independent kingdom, was different before the Meiji era.

At present, as Okinawan food, generally, the origin in the one to be found of is roughly separated by the food which is reflected by the court food, and the food which had been eating in the home of the common people.

The grand & splendid food which was strongly influenced in China by need of reception party of the envoy from the ritual and China progressed at the court in the Ryukyu-Kingdom era.

On the other hand, the wild grass (i.e. herbs) and the food utilized by natural foods among the citizens, they are valid as the medicinal table and the longevity food,  and are contributing to live long life in Okinawa prefecture to today.
