Wow, can you believe that 2022 is almost halfway over?! I can't either. I have been busy these past few weeks trimming down my "COVID 19" body weight gain (instead of the "Freshman 15"), so I haven't been visiting many restaurants as of late. Now that I am nearing my ideal weight, I am ready to hit the pavement and dine in some of our superb Yakima Valley restaurants again!

MY TOP 2 BEST YAKIMA VALLEY RESTAURANT FAVORITES ALL YEAR ROUND

For example, I have been craving a delicious Indian Taco from A&B Native Cuisine out in Toppenish (208 S Toppenish Ave)! I will definitely be going there for lunch sometime this week! I also have been wanting to enjoy another Sunday brunch at Eats & Elixirs in Yakima (910 Summitview Ave) and devour one of their fusion waffles again! I am very surprised that neither one of these fantastic new restaurants made the cut on Trip Advisor's "Top 10 Best Restaurants" for May. These blokes from Trip Advisors must not live in Yakima because I am seeing some glaring snubs on this list of the TOP.

And now for my own personal list of the "Top Restaurants in Yakima" for May 2022!

El Mirador Express
418 W Walnut St

I recommend you get the One Chicken Enchilada meal! It comes with rice, beans, and a thing of chips and salsa. Simply THEEEE best for May!

Eats & Elixirs
910 Summitview Ave

You have GOT to try one of their Weekend Brunch Waffles. You have never had ANYTHING like these before; they are one of a kind creations. I ordered the "Yakima Waffle" and I sampled bites of the other waffles off my friends' plates. The tastiest one to me was the one with the Pork Belly, and I don't even normally LIKE pork belly!

E.Z. Tiger
222 E Chestnut Ave

It's really bizarre that every restaurant I have put on my Top 5 Restaurants list for May has so far started with the letter "E". It is not intentional, I assure you, but I do highly recommend the Shrimp Pad Thai at E.Z. Tiger. It is a comfort food for me, and the spicer, the better!

Bangkok OMG Kitchen
1901 S 1st St #102

You might be saying, "Oh really, another Thai food place on your list for May?" To which I would say, "HECK YES, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" Bangkok OMG Kitchen just opened up in the last few weeks and I was lucky enough to try their Lap Salad (Lettuce wraps with ground pork, stir fry vegetables and LOTS OF SPICE). You can contain the spice level of your meal to whichever one you want, from a Level 0 to a Level 10. I chose the Level 6 and it's a good thing, too, because my mouth would have been probably literally on fire if I had asked for any more spicy "heat"!

Round Table Pizza
1400 S 40th Ave

I know it might seem a bit strange that I put a pizza joint as my #1 recommendation for the top restaurants in Yakima for May 2022, but please hear me out.

Picture it, Sicily, 1922...

No, I'm just playing. Picture it last Friday, May 2022, when a woman was STARVING.

I'm talking so hungry I was sounding like Chris Farley on a sketch from Saturday Night Live! I had just gotten paid so I had a few extra coins rattling in my bank account and decided to get a personal pizza from Round Table Pizza. It was quick and easy to place my order on their website and when I went inside there was this extremely slow moving young couple in front of me. They were arguing amongst themselves from the time they got out of their car. I tried to get in front of them but they were so mean I was afraid they would start yelling at me and I wanted none of that smoke! So I put my big girl patient pannies on and stood behind them in line, even though my order was already sitting there waiting for pickup.

Y'all.

This couple took SO LONG to decide what they wanted to get that the Round Table cashier stepped aside and asked me if I had a to-go order. I said yes and told her my name. How about she paused the slow moving couple and said, "Excuse me for a moment." Then she yelled back at the staff in the kitchen to please bring up my personal pizza and then she personally handed it to me and said, "Thank you so much for waiting and being patient. I hope you have a wonderful day!"

I haven't had such sweet and kind customer service like that in quite a while. So THAT is why Round Table Pizza is my #1 pick for the Top Restaurant in Yakima for May 2022.
