Yomitan just gained another amazing restaurant.
Yomitan Transit is open and has instantly become one of my new favorites!
The first Transit Café is a popular restaurant along the seawall near Kadena. People can visit for any occasion: casual, dressy, lunch, girls night… anything! Recently Wade and I moved to the Yomitan area. We were stoked to see they were building a new location up the road.
Yomitan Transit opened on the first of July and the first thing I did upon waking that morning was call for a reservation. Actually I probably sent some reply texts, browsed reddit for any new Game of Thrones theories and then checked Facebook. I guess it was the first productive thing I did that day. It might actually be the only productive thing I did that day. Hey, it is summer vacation, I’m allowed to be lazy.
I made the reservation so Wade and I would be able to watch the sunset during dinner. Aren’t I romantic? The view from the outdoor seating was incredible. Overlooking the East China Sea and Yomitan village, the sun sets perfectly in the distance and showed off how truly beautiful Okinawa is.
Yomitan Transit’s menu and decor are similar to the seawall location, including their popular camembert cheese dip. For dinner, Wade and I both went for pasta dishes, however there is a good variety on the menu, including pizza, beef and seafood.
This location does offer some variations from it’s original. The structure of the new building is more modern, with hard lines and clean white decor. Yomitan Transit also host multiple businesses within the building. A bakery, boutique hotel and open terrace bar all share its address. There is also a tempura restaurant, Kaze Machi Duki, which is the plan for our next date night!
Of course after dinner we made our way up to the second floor to the open terrace bar, where we enjoyed a nightcap together. The terrace is a beautiful extension to the restaurant and great way to end a date night. Wade and I certainly will make this our go to for dates nights to come.
