Have you ever been to Cracked Pepper Bistro? It’s PHENOM. Well, Vatche is the owner and head chef at Cracked Pepper and guess what?! He opened ANOTHER restaurant. His new place, is a Mediterranean style restaurant called Yalla Yalla located over on Friant and Fort Washington. Cam and I took a little trip there last week and he fed us til our tummies were packed tight.
Vatche is the real deal. And I’ll say that until I’m blue in the face. I see this guy at Farmer’s Markets buying his produce for his restaurants. He’s friendly, he’s talented, and he’s serious about his craft. The kitchen is his studio and the ingredients are his paint. I really appreciate that about him. He is a true chef.
I could go on and on about how wonderful Vatche is or how delish his dishes are–or how you SERIOUSLY NEED to try his famous Bread Pudding, but I’ll just let you sit back and enjoy the video. You might need to grab a napkin to wipe the drool off your face.
And seriously, how beautiful is Yalla Yalla?? Go and check it out for yourself.
