Yellow City Street Food is a local eatery located at 2916 Wolflin Ave. YCSF sells a wide variety of foods and drinks including alcoholic beverages.
The restaurant has unusual hours, opening 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., closing for a few hours and then reopening at 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday-Friday. It is closed Sundays and Mondays and only open from 11-2 on Saturdays.
They sell many food items but some of their most popular are the hulk taco, animal fries, hulk salad, fish taco and the sunrise burger. I’ve gone multiple times and the freshness and quality of the food has not differed from the first time I ever went. The food is hot, tastes really fresh and has a vibrant flavor.
One of their key products is their remoulade sauce. It is a light orange colored sauce that has to be one of the best sauces I’ve ever had. It has a distinct taste with a touch of spice and must be tasted to experience. It is their bread and butter. They put it on nearly everything.
My favorite product is their animal fries. They are fresh cut fries, covered in their remoulade sauce, with sautéed red onions and cut up bacon. The bacon is cut into thick chunks and is just one small detail that is the cherry on top.
They have a wide variety of drinks and beers. I’m not old enough to drink alcoholic beverages, but I know they have many hazy IPA’s, normal IPA’s, craft beers and standard beers. They also sell white and red wines.
They have some good non-alcoholic beverages like their homemade sodas. Some flavors include lemongrass, cola, cherry and coconut. I have had all but the cola and they all have distinct flavors with a more natural taste over regular sodas.
The environment of the place can be described as a hole in the wall hidden treasure location with a southern California beach vibe. It’s clear with one look at the staff that variety and true expression are characteristics of their employees.
They tend to have a different special going on every day, which is shown on their website. They also have a loyalty program for their returning customers to get rewards on purchases for discounts or free items.
Overall, it is a wonderful place and has never disappointed me with the taste of their food. I will be returning again in the future and I hope you give it a try. It will not disappoint.
