This is Green Leaf.  A very famous organic shop and cafe in Okinawa. They have 2 locations. This one is Yomitan, and the other is in Chatan.

I had a meeting to do with my associates and we wanted to check out the place too.

(This was in March.  I’m pretty backed up on my blog.)

This is the shop entrance.

It’s a small shop, but they got a good variety.

Local fresh organic vegetables.  They must have worked hard to get this network of organic farmers.

They sell these by weights.  It’s pretty common in US, but not much in Japan yet.  I love the idea of buying just as much as you need and not wasting for packaging.

The shop leads directly to the cafe.

It seems that it’s almost all salads.

OK, it makes sense.  When you come here for organic veggies, raw food is just as fine.  And whoever their chef is, he/she doesn’t have to be here all the time.  Still, the menu looks exciting.  Makes sense to me.

Look at the Buddha Bowl!  I don’t know what he ate back then, but the bowl does look great.

This is remarkable.  Chia Seeds for your free garnish.

Acai Bowl.  The weather was cold.  But this was after I worked in the pool, and I was craving for something cold and fruity.

 

greenleaf20170313_21

It was great.  It will be even much better in a hot summer.  There isn’t many places in Okinawa where you can get acai bowl.

Additive-free hot dog with organic veggies and whole wheat bread.

Here are some dishes that my associates were having.  This is the curry plate.

Curry tasted a little flat.  To my liking, this is not a curry place.

This is the bagel sandwich.

I guess it’s tuna mayo inside?  Looks great.

Here it is!  The Buddha Bowl.

 

I think it’s a good place to hang out with friends for light meals.  I would go to one of the salad bowls or the fruits bowls.
