Yak & Yeti

May 2015 Trip Review

At Yak & Yeti Emily and I both chose a cocktail from their Specialty Drinks…

I went with my usual choice of the Big Bamboo and Emily chose the Yak Attack…

Yak Attack (left) – Mango Daiquiri with Bacardi light rum and wild berry flavors & the Big Bamboo (right) with Malibu coconut rum, Bacardi light rum, DeKuyper banana liqueur and tropical fruit juices.

I love this sweet, fruity cocktail and rated it a 5. Emily enjoyed the Yak Attack and gave it a 4.

My son, being only 19, went with a non-alcohol beverage located in this area of the menu…

He chose the Everest Refresher…

Sparkling Water with Desert Pear flavor

He was a little surprised by the color, as the drink’s ingredients gave him no indication that his drink would be purplish-pink. We all got a pretty good chuckle from it though. As for the taste, he said it was in fact refreshing (as its name implied) and gave it a 4.

We were all just a little bit hungry and decided we needed a snack to hold us over until our dinner. After looking over the Appetizers listed on the menu…

…we couldn’t agree on just one. My son really wanted the pot stickers and my daughter and I were craving egg rolls. Therefore, we ended up ordering both. ;)

At one time Yak & Yeti had Egg Rolls listed on their menu as both an appetizer (which included three rolls) and as a side (which was two). However, that is no longer the case now…

Since my son said he didn’t want an egg roll, I asked our server if it was possible to still get a side of just two egg rolls. After confirming with someone in the kitchen, I was told that that was possible so I ordered this for Emily and me…

Pork Egg Rolls with Chili Plum Dipping Sauce

And then primarily for my son, we also ordered the…

Pan-seared Pork Pot Stickers with soy lime dipping sauce

So my son ate one pot sticker and said he didn’t really like it. Being the nice mother that I am, I offered him half of my egg roll which he liked and quickly devoured. We all agreed that the egg rolls were good, so they received a rating of 4 from all us. As for the pot stickers, Emily and I split the remaining four and thought they were good. So although my son gave them only a 2, she and I gave them a 4.

We had a dinner reservation at Rainforest Cafe (the kids’ pick), so no entrees or desserts for us…not even the much-loved fried cream cheese wontons. :sad2: But I did take photos of the rest of the menu, since I noticed several changes since I was last here in October 2014.

ETA: While Yak & Yeti does not give a 20% discount to Tables in Wonderland members, it does give a 10% discount to Annual Passholders but on their entrees only. Since we did not have any entrees, no discount for us this time.
