My kids wanted to go to a certain restaurant in Yakima where they always enjoy the food. It's been a few months since we've been here so I figured any time is a good as any.

I usually get the same thing every time I go but in this case I figured I'd try something new.

I'm glad I did.

This here is the Prawn Special

Where Can You Find this Prawn Special in Yakima

This is available at Taj Palace on 28th and Nob Hill.

I'm a huge fan of Indian food. Every time I go I get the standard -- butter chicken. My kids always get the butter chicken as well as you can't go wrong.

This time I figured I'd try something else. Worst case, I can get my butter chicken fix by taking a bite of theirs if needed.

I was feeling some type of shrimp dish as they have several to choose from at Taj Palace. I could have got the butter shrimp but this Prawn Special jumped out at me.

Tiger shrimp marinated in Indian herbs and served with a house salad.

It came out served on one of those sizzling skillets which always makes for a great show. It may even make others jealous they didn't order it. I get that way when the table next to me orders the fajitas at a Mexican restaurant.

The food was fantastic and, with the rice I love, it was perfect.

The service at Taj Palace, is also second to none. I don't know his name but the young man who helps us every time we've been there the past several times is always nice and love to joke around with us in a playful manor which we appreciate. It's like dinner and a comedy show. He's the best.
