After a long weekend of gardening and spreading bark mulch, I was just getting ready to relax with a glass of wine and survey our hard work, when dear husband sheepishly asked if I would like to take a 40 minute drive up the coast to Home Depot to buy a sprinkler part. Since it was already 7 PM, it was like "Hello, are you kidding me?" However, he did sweeten the deal with the promise of a stop for dinner in Seaside. For the unenlightened, Seaside, OR. is not known as a mecca of fine dining, so imagine my surprise, when we stopped at
Yummys and found a charming place with great food.
The restaurant is small, but beautifully decorated. You can eat at a table or sit on the comfy couches and eat from TV trays. Either way, it's a fun dining experience.
We both ordered a glass of wine from their extensive wine list, and enjoyed a bowl of their signature Seafood chowder. The chowder is a creamy broth style, filled with fish, shrimp, and scallops, which was enhanced, by their 'secret ingredient'- cubes of yams, which added a delightful touch of sweetness to the soup.
The menu changes seasonally four times a year, so everything is fresh. Here's another view of the inviting interior. It's a very welcoming place.http://yummywinebarbistro.com/
