I've become a major fan of beating the food crowds, showing up at 4:15 pm instead of 5 pm, or even earlier to snag a nice quiet spot to stuff my face. This is what you came for right? Foodie Friday's with Sarah J powered by Coca-Cola of Yakima and Tri-Cities is back again, this time with Mama and I dining outdoors at E.Z Tiger

We are a Dim Sum & Noodle House celebrating the flavors of the Pacific Rim. Our bar program focuses on signature scratch cocktails and mocktails made with fresh juices and house syrups.  We have a variety of Asian bottled beers & local draft beers, as well as wine & sake.

Located in Downtown Yakima, 222 East Chestnut Avenue in Yakima, WA 98901, this spot has been transformed into an oasis. Open Tuesday - Thursday with take-out from 11:30 am - 8 pm including indoor or outdoor seating from 11 am - 8 pm, Friday - Saturday take 11:30 am - 9 pm, and dine in or outdoors from 11:00 am - 9 pm.

The colors are neutral, the vibe is sophisticated and the menu is meant to be shared so come prepared to sample all sorts of delicacies. I would make sure to read all the ingredients because there are touches like citrus or passionfruit that will uplift your dish or have you asking for seconds from someone else's.

Mom and I had visited once before when E.Z Tiger first opened so this was a treat. We splurged on Ahi Poke with crispy rice, passionfruit, shallot, and mint. The Thai Rice Bowl with shrimp served in a bowl of jasmine rice with mango, bean sprouts, scallions, peanut, jalapeno, and fresh herbs. Kung Pao Chicken, Bejing Dumplings, and a Tennesee Tiger to wrap it all together! So delicious and a must-try.

I have also been informed the Stone Bowl of Fried Rice is probably the brightest menu item if you're searching for delicious AND Instagram-worthy photos. It is mixed right at your table, steamy and delicious. Come for a Happy Hour stay for dinner and invite your favorites because E.Z Tiger is a Yakima restaurant worthy of bringing out-of-town guests too!
