Last weekend I had the chance to try a small Japanese bistro in Alameda. It was call Yellow Tail and it was delicious.
As I vegan I always try to choose restaurants with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. At Yellow tail the miso soup we started off with was vegan and delicious. For dinner I ordered the tofu with lemongrass and shitake mushrooms, which was quite tasty. Every time I eat Japanese food the tofu is always too salty but here it was just right. Unfortunately I wasn't able to try the sushi but my companion had the unagi and said it was lovely.
For carnivores, the restaurant features mostly fish dishes. I was told the salmon was pretty much divine. For dessert we had their hawaiian pineapple and coconut sorbet which was refreshing and quite yummy. I would definitely reccomend this restaruant to all vegan and vegetarians and those who enjoy meat too.
If you ever happen to be on Park Street in Alameda, be sure to stop by Yellow Tail Japanese Bistro.
