Indian??? Yes please..........

Yak and Yeti

Ok First of all, you have to go to the location on Sheridan, it is the BEST!!!!!!  Listen to me and you will be rewarded!!!!!  I have been going here for years and years, if I had to guess I would say around 8 years.  It recently changed owners about a year ago and the food has gotten better, and better.  On Saturday my sister Teresa and her husband Jesse and Moi went there for lunch buffet.  You are really better going for indian food for a buffet, then you get a little of everything.  Yak and Yeti has a buffet for dinner and lunch, but you can also order off of the menu (not suggested).  Teresa and I ordered iced Chai and Jesse ordered a Chai Milk Stout for drinks.  Yak and Yeti brews their own beers and recently won an award for their Himalayan IPA at the Great American Brew Fest held in Denver Colorado.  I personally am not too much of a beer drinker but Jesse seemed to enjoy it.

The chai is the reason to come here as far as I am concerned and I could drink it everyday if I could.  Yak and Yeti offers a lot of different items but my favorite are chicken curry, saag paneer, and the naan of course.  But yesterday they had something new that was really good, chicken in chili sauce.  I hope they keep that one on the table because it was awesome, kind spicy but not too much.  Teresa doesn't like spicy so she passed on that and usually goes for the sweet potato marsala.  Overall you are not going to leave here hungry, actually the "food" baby in your stomach will be so large you will need to have a nap when you go home. 
My friend Michelle and my sister really love the rice pudding as well, I hate rice pudding so I have to take their word for that.  I have provided a few pictures below for your viewing pleasure.  Please eat at Yak and Yeti I have loved it for years and I am sure you will too. 


It doesn't look like a lot but it is filling

Ernie's Pizza Bar

Ernie's Pizza bar is located at

 2915 West 44th Avenue
Denver, CO 80211
(303) 955-5580

You can eat in or carry out.  This used to be a former restaurant that I would go to from time to time called, three sons, but it closed about a year ago and was replaced by Ernie's.  My friend Mike and I went there last Tuesday night.  On Tuesday's it is family night and you can get dinner for 4 people for $30 (prices may change) but it seems like a good deal you get a salad to share and a large pizza or spaghetti and meatballs, a large pitcher of soda and flavored ice for dessert.  Since it was just Mike and I we ordered off of the menu.  Also important to note that the bar here has a really good selection of beers and drinks, they even make their own limoncello.  We start with the house salad.

It was a really good salad served family style in a wooden bowl.  Fresh baby salad greens, red onions, pitted kalamata olives, and tomatoes served with the house dressing which is olive oil based.  I was really impressed by this salad since it seems like house salads can sometimes be cheap and over priced, but this one was not, around $4 a person but was really worth the price.  For our main meal I had a meatball calzone.
The Calzone is filled with mozzarella, ricotta, and sliced meatballs.  This was once of the best things I have eaten in a long time and writing about it is making me drool.  Go get this now, or of course when they are open.  Mike had a pepperoni pizza with sliced red onions, he wouldn't let me take a picture because he is a loser!!!!!  But he ate the whole thing so I am sure it was good, and he said it was good, so I am going to trust him.  Overall this place was really great.  The service was slow but I'm not too sure if that was just because our waiter had almost half the restaurant to himself, but it didn't ruin my opinion, the food more then made up for it.  The calzone was around $12 and Mike's pizza was around $11, might seem a little pricey but the ingredients are so fresh that you will not leave feeling like you didn't get your moneys worth.  Overall I will be going back a lot, and it is close to my house in Denver so I am even more happy about that.  The menu features; pizza, calzones, salads, pasta, and sandwiches, there is also gluten free pizza available.  A very simple menu but very good quality.  I would recommend that you go.

First Post

Ok first things first, I love food!!!!!  I also like eating out and finding new restaurants.  I find that I am constantly looking for new restaurants in Colorado, and it seems like it takes forever to find them.............really I am just sick of looking so much.  I ask that anyone that comes across this blog will add where they are eating, and places that I must try.  I am hoping that this leads me to some really great food, but I also hope that this leads you to some really great food as well.  I might also occasionally post some recipes since I really do enjoy cooking as a hobby.  Ok Let's get started........................
