Restaurant: Yellow Leaf
As a sample post, I will introduce a restaurant in Tsukuba.
Yellow Leaf is a unique little restaurant. It only seats about 10 or 15 people and it is only open for lunch. The menu is limited to about 3 or 4 options, but everything is healthy and delicious. The food is sort of “Asian Fusion” with a couple of noodle and rice dishes. There is a boutique on the south side of the restaurant that has high quality goods (clothing, jewelry). This is a lovely place to spend your lunch hour with friends. Call ahead to make a reservation to be sure you can get a seat. (I believe it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.)
Here is one of the dishes they serve. It is called “Tomyankung” and it is a kind of Thai soup. It is a bit spicy and it is served with either rice or noodles inside. The portion-size is huge. Lunch options come with dessert and coffee.
It is a bit difficult to find the restaurant. Drive south down Nishi Odori. Go past the Doho Koen intersection. At the intersection just before AIST West, turn right (west). Follow the road past AIST West until the fence ends. Turn left. The restaurant is just up that road a bit on the right.
