Yaga's Café has my favorite Galveston salad. They are located on the Strand @ 23rd. They have a large patio and promptly bring your dog water. It sits on a corner where live music is often performed and a life-size chess game and huge chair make for fun tourist pics.
Tuesday we chose to leave the dog at home and sit inside the restaurant, as it was a bit too windy to enjoy outdoor dining. We were seated quickly and our waitress was all over it getting our drinks and taking our order. I had, what I always have at Yaga's, the Strawberry Cider Salad with added chicken. The chicken was very abundant this evening and cooked to a juicy perfection. Their cider dressing is a recipe that I WILL figure out one day! The salad is loaded with fresh blue cheese and pecans. The cooked apple slices take the bite over the top. Jeff had Ziggy's Peppered Shrimp with sweet potato tots and a side salad. When they didn't get the salad out before the entree' he changed that side to snap peas which turned out to be an excellent choice. The shrimp are very spicy but the sweetness of the tots offset that spice. Jenny had the club sandwich and commented that is was better than Mario's Italian Sub. We all left full and happy. Love Yaga's food and atmosphere. Plus, they're right across the street from the chocolate shops.
