1/4 Karot – Hamura

I recently organized a lunch for the The Yokota Spouses’ Club Lunch Bunch group.  1/4 Karot in Hamura is a restaurant I had heard about but not yet tried so I thought this was a great chance to check it out.  They seemed to have an active Facebook page so I inquired on Facebook Messenger about making a reservation.  They responded within a day and we set up a day and time.  We weren’t sure how many would attend yet but they told me to just give them a final number by the day before.  The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and is a short 5-7 minute drive out the Fussa or Terminal gates.  They have 3 assigned parking spots just behind the restaurant.  The lunch menu included 5 meal set options ranging in price from Y800-Y1200.  Everyone raved about the mini vegetable soup and side salad.  Between the eight ladies that attended, we tried 4 different meal options.  Everyone was surprised how large the lunch portions were!  We all really enjoyed our meals and agreed we would come back again.  The restaurant is small so I would recommend making a reservation.  They also have a small bar with seating.  The dinner menu had many more food options so I look forward to going back! – Angela Vaillant, November 2018
