Back A Yard togo summary

sandrachang | Mar 7, 2007 02:04 PM

So I had some friends come over to the house, and we wanted some takeout, so this was a chance to try out Back A Yard in Menlo Park - I read from previous posts on what best to order, and we had 5 people so here is what I got:

Jerk Chicken
Jerk Pork
Fried Snapper
Braised Oxtails
Jerk Tofu (we have a vegetarian)

The general consensus was that all the food was very good - the only item that was average was the fried snapper.

I really liked the oxtails (highly recommended) - the meat was falling off the bones.
The flavors on the jerk pork and chicken were great - not immediately spicy, but the spices sit on your tongue and after a while, you notice that it's hot.

They gave a small soup - it was chicken with lentils soup - big piece of chicken and lots of vegetables.

There is a sauce that they include with the jerk dinners - I'm not sure what it is, but it's great - it looks like the same sauce that they have in the rice?

I'd like to try the patties -
Is there anything else that is good - the other special was chicken curry that I didn't get -

Want to stay up to date with this post?
