Another great update! We have an ADR for the Safari Breakfast in August and I was excited to see your review.

Yak and Yeti, lunch, 05.03.08

This was an unplanned lunch. Originally, I had only planned b'fast and dinner for this day. I was going to have dinner at Artist Point (2 TS), but decided that it was way too long between b'fast and dinner, and that I needed lunch. Go figure. So I walked into Y&Y around noon to see if they had anything for a bit later in the afternoon, around 2ish. Well, they were wide open! So I got a 2pm ADR. Went along to cancel Artist Point, and snagged a late WCC ADR instead (only 1 TS).

With all the technicalities out of the way, let's move along to the food. Last time I ate here, I ordered an alcoholic beverage, the Yak Attack, and it was really good. But I decided to just stick to what was included in the plan, and went for an unsweetened iced tea instead. I had to ask for a refill a couple of times before I actually got one, so that's not so good for the restaurant.

I was given a nice window table though, upstairs. So that was nice. Here's the view out the window


For my appy, I ordered the Lettuce Cups - minced chicken breast, chopped vegetables, maple tamarind sauce, crisp lettuce cups.



Oh my goodness! These things were so good, and huge! I swear, at least 3 or more people could share this as an appetizer. They weren't spicy, but the chicken mixture had a bite to it. I thought it was really good.

My entree was the Pho - Lemon grass scented broth, poached shrimp, rice noodles, tranditional Vietnamese garnishes.



Oops! I forgot to take the picture till after I ate it. There were shrimp in there. Lots of them too. That's mainly what I ate, the shrimp. Didn't have much of the noodles, but they were good too. Again, huge portion, easily could have been shared.

Now on to dessert. MMM. Yummy! I got the Mango Pie


This was so good! I don't even know how to describe it, but seriously, delicious dessert. Nice and smooth and creamy. Light mango taste. Just good. For real. Haha, sorry I can't be more descriptive. I'd imagine it would be similar to Key Lime Pie, but Mango instead, although, I don't know that I've ever tried Key Lime Pie. So a lot of help I am!

Oh, and I just noticed my coffee in the picture. Guess Y&Y was another place that allowed me to have my coffee with my dessert.

Anyway, overall, the food itself was good. The server left a little to be desired, what with not refilling my drink, and not really checking on me after the runners brought the food. But oh well. I'm sure I'll be back. Especially if it's still so easy to walk up with no problem.

up next: dinner @ Whispering Canyon Cafe

BONUS -- two updates at once!! Yeah If you can't tell I'm really enjoying your report. I'm thrilled to hear that you liked Yak & Yeti enough to say you'd go back as I've been debating whether or not to make an ADR there. That mango pie sounds delish and I've heard of the yak attack too. So if all else fails, I can always pop in for a cocktail and pie, right? Perfectly reasonable food combination.

Whispering Canyon Cafe, dinner, 05.03.08

As you know from my previous installment, WCC was not in my original plans. I would have been at Artist Point tonight, but used up a credit for lunch instead. So I figured, I may as well try for WCC, since it's at least in the same hotel I was originally going for. The only time they had available for me was 8:40pm, which was late, but I took it anyway. I actually arrived at 7:50, and had to wait until my ADR time to be seated. That was a long wait, but I just sat in a comfy chair and dozed in and out.

When I was finally seated, it was in some far off room, away from any action whatsoever. This was a major disappointment. I mean yeah, I'm by myself, but why does that mean I don't get to play? Oh well, I never said anything, so that's my own fault. I know better if I ever go back.

My server was fine. I don't remember her name. She did throw straws at me. That's about it. And she kept up on my drink, which I appreciated.

Speaking of my drink, I ordered the refillable milkshake, since it was included. Yum! I got vanilla first, then a caramel later (didn't finish either!)



Actually, before the shake came out, my salad came out. Oh yeah, I ordered the Skillet, and all that came with it. So here's the salad



I liked it just fine. The dressing was tasty, apple vinaigrette.

After the salad, the cornbread and butter appeared



I tried it and thought it to be a bit dry, but maybe it's just because I don't usually eat cornbread, so I'm not used to it. Who knows.

Next up came the skillet



I really enjoyed the peel-n-eat shrimp, even though they were pretty messy. I easily finished all of those. The pulled pork was alright, better when dipped in the bbq sauce. The ribs were good. I normally don't eat ribs, but I was determined to try everything in there, so I did. So what I tried, I enjoyed of the ribs. As for the chicken, I had some of the white meat part, and it was fine. I don't do dark meat on chicken, so I can't comment on that part. Wasn't a fan of the beans, but I don't eat baked beans anyway. Oh yeah, mashed potatoes! Can't forget those! They were nice and creamy.

So I barely made a dent in that skillet, other than the shrimp, there was lots left over. I think it's the same size they brought out for a party of 3 sitting next to me. Way lots of food, not meant for 1 person at all! Oh well! I needed to save room for dessert, of course! I ordered the Cinnamon Tortilla with Vanilla Ice Cream - topped with fresh bananas and banana-caramel sauce



It was a little melty (as you can see), but I liked it. Bananas are my fav fruit, so I enjoyed those. And you really can't mess up ice cream. The tortilla part was fine. Nothing too exciting. Again, couldn't finish it, but what can you expect from one girl?!?

I was out of there within an hour, which was nice, because I planned to hit up the MK for Spectro. But overall, it was a disappointing meal. The food was fine, but like when I go to 50's PTC, I go for the experience, and the food is just a topper. And I got no experience whatsoever. I may try it again, with more people, and ask to sit in the main room. But I won't be rushing back.

next up: lunch at 50's PTC

Marica... so enjoying your reports-- I am going to be at the WL and we are going to WCC cafe our 1st night. But ds is a chicken fingers only boy so I was wondering about having the skillet alone. SO glad you had it (and didn't feel self conscious?- maybe just me)...
DO you think I could take the leftovers w me (as my room and refridge is right upstairs??)

I have been reading your reviews as ds will only eat chicken fingers so I am trying all these places I have always wanted to go to...dh is a picky eater and isn't going this trip-- so we are trying boma, kona, ohana's-- morocco too maybe? told ds (11) I am using him to get to these places
