Where To Find Poutine in Yakima… Kind Of

Poutine is a magical food. In fact, it's something you may have made at home without even knowing what it was called. Proper poutine is fries or potato wedges, cheese curds and brown sauce-type gravy on top. It's finding its way on more and more menus in restaurants, but hasn't found its way to Yakima, yet.

Then you have to add that we're in a strange places surrounded by strangers. Thanks to Children's Village and the Yakima Theaters, my son was able to see a movie for the first time -- and he sat down the entire time!

I Found a Secret Option at the Rosauers Bakery

I'm a huge fan of secret menu items. Those are those things you can order, but aren't on the menu. But when you ask for them, they usually know exactly what you're talking about. Like ordering a chicken-and-waffles sandwich at McDonald's by getting the McGriddle, but ordering it with chicken instead of sausage.
