When you walk in it is hard to know where to look first. There are decorations resembling ones' travels across many areas of Asia. Featured are many unique statues, displays of armor, cabinets full of artifacts, specialty boxes elegantly displayed on beautiful tables, paintings and more.
We started our meal with some of the delicious specialty cocktails they offer, Pink Himalayan: Tanqueray Gin, Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, Passion Fruit and Lemon Grass Flavors, Salt Rim and the South Seas Traveler: Created by the Yak and Yeti Bartenders...Myer's Original Dark Rum and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Monin Lychee Syrup, and citrus juices. Both were refreshing and delicious.
I'm a sucker for a dumpling so of course we had to have an order of the Pork Pot Stickers, served pan seared or steamed, with soy lime dipping sauce. We opted for seared and were once again happy with our choice here! These were delicious bites and the soy lime sauce was the perfect compliment.
When it was time for our entrée selection it was so hard to choose, the menu has so many great options ranging from noodle bowls to wok entrees to items from the grill. The food here is of a Pan-Asian Style, which is a variety of favorite dishes found across Asia. On our visit there was a hibachi grill special surf and turf, grilled steak and fried shrimp served with rice and veggies which we opted for along with a classic sweet and sour chicken (tempura chicken, ginger, garlic, bell peppers, pineapple.) Both dishes were quite delicious but the star was really the surf and turf special.
You can also sit at the bar, grab a small plate or sharable and enjoy one of the many unique specialty drinks such as the Yak Attack or a draft beer such as Safari Amber. There are alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available.
If you want to grab a quick bite you can walk up to the window at Yak and Yeti Local Foods Cafe. Here you can choose from Sweet and Sour Chicken, Egg Rolls, Lo Mein, Fried Rice and more. You can order a drink such as frozen lemonade or even sit down with an ice cold beer.
