Sooth Your Curry Cravings at Yakima Thai Cuisine Located Downtown
The search for a great curry led me to downtown Yakima for this week's Foodie Friday's with Sarah J powered by Coca-Cola of Yakima and Tri-Cities. There are a few different selections in town but I've been following Yakima Thai Cuisine and their culinary delicacies on social media for a while now and figured it was time!
Back in the day I used to LOVE eating at this tiny Thai restaurant in Hawaii. I've never found that incredible flavor again...until I believe now! While perusing the menu of Yakima Thai Cuisine I was happy and surprised to see a ton of curry choices; Green Curry, Red Curry, Panang Curry, Massaman Curry and Yellow Curry! Um...the only things besides the taste I remember was that it was slightly red. Do I go with red curry or try something new? I googled and discovered that Green Curry is traditionally the most popular, full of flavor, sweet and spicy at the same time so I felt like it was a good start and a great way to help a local restaurant.

The other day I noticed they had to shut down, due to a leak in the roof. With everything going on lately that's the last thing any restaurant needs so I was happy to see that they now are back open, taking order for take-out items currently and ready to serve you!
Speaking with the newly appointed front of the house guy (sorry I didn't get your name) I discovered that the curry heat score starts with a mild one star all the way to five, truly some fire. I made the wrong decision recently with ordering too much spice so we settled on a one for my first go. Here's the description
Green curry with coconut milk, bamboo shoot, zucchini, bell pepper Thai sweet basil leaves, kaffir lime leaves and choice of meats
I chose chicken, each curry comes with a side of jasmine rice and I added an order of fried spring rolls.
I'll be back for a two star when it comes to the heat and going for that red curry :) It's fresh, sweet and delicious with a touch of heat and the spring rolls were REALLY good! Enough for two nice meals, left-overs for the win! The menu is so much more than the curry selection so if you are searching for Thai flavors head down to 14 Staff Sgt Pendelton Way, Yakima, WA 98901. Open Monday - Thursday 10:30 am - 8 pm, Friday 10:30 am - 9 pm, Saturday 12 pm - 9 pm and Sunday they are closed.
