Foodie Friday: Yard House

My friend who lives in Las Vegas is always rubbing this place in my face. Here I was trying to make plans for the next time I was in Vegas and there is one right here in San Diego! After driving right by this location last night, shocked that I never knew, it was apparent I would be eating here today. I woke Jon up and dragged him to Yard House with me.

Yard House offers a small lunch menu between 11am-5pm (Monday-Friday) and a happy hour menu between 3pm-6pm (Monday-Friday) and 10pm-12am (Sunday-Wednesday).

24 menu items can be substituted with Gardein™ products! So many to choose from, Jon and I settled on sharing three plates: Firecracker Wings, (Mac+Cheese)² and Veggie Béarnaise Sliders. Although a little pricey, it was totally worth it!

Firecracker Wings // crispy gardein™ chick'n tossed in a spicy sesame garlic plum glaze and garnished with green onions:

(Mac+Cheese)² // gardein™ chick'n breast, wild mushrooms, cheddar and parmesan with campanelle pasta and white truffle oil:

Béarnaise Sliders // four mini gardein™ burgers served with fried onions, béarnaise sauce, fries and a pickle:

My little sample plate:

My favorite of the three were the Firecracker Wings, the plum sauce along with the crunch and the green onions really pulled it all together.

There is only so much room in this little belly, so my other recommendation that I will definitely be trying the next time I visit, is the BBQ chick'n pizza: mozzarella, cilantro, red onion, chick'n and smoked gouda with bbq sauce.

Location: 1023 4th Avenue San Diego, California 92101

Other locations include: AZ, CA, CO, FL, HI, IL, KS, MA, NV and TX
