Top 30 Former Yakima Restaurants People Are Missing Right Now
I just ordered dinner because I don't feel like cooking tonight.
WHY I DON'T FEEL LIKE COOKING TONIGHT
I found myself wishing I could drive over to Chipotle and grab something to go but then I wistfully remembered: they closed up shop a couple of years ago. Ugh. Where have all the great restaurants of Yakima's past gone?
MY FACEBOOK MESSAGE TO THE WORLD
This sad, hangry feeling made me think about a message I wrote on my Facebook page a few weeks ago...
"I was sitting up here missing that Chipotle sofritas bowl. What business closed up recently that you still miss? RIP Chipotle."
WHEN THEY REMINISCE OVER YOU...
It sometimes feels so exhausting and sad to think about all of the great food that has blessed us with its great tastes. There's the hot dog shop that served the tastiest bites and the friendliest of service. There's the Italian pasta shop that lived in West Valley for what seems now like minutes and now I can't even remember its name. They served the best Italian food I've had in decades and now they are gone forever.
Enough of my immense foodie memories, the rest of Yakima has their own tasty tales to tell. We are all in sorrow thinking about the way we were...the other restaurants that my friends brought up in the FB post above. So far, I've counted THIRTY of them.
