Pork has always been an indispensable part of Okinawan cuisine. It is said that Okinawans eat every part of the pig except for its squeal. Out of all the varieties of pork that are available, Okinawa's native aguu is the most popular and has been used to create many more varieties -- each with its own characteristics -- through crossbreeding. Why not try them all?
