Yaya’s is the kind of place I love to coming across. It’s under the radar, unassuming, family run, and delivers different and tasty food you do not find very often.
Yaya’s is located in an aesthetically boring strip mall in Vista behind a McDonald’s at 1450 North Santa Fe Ave. at Bobier.
The interior is clean with light wood and bright colors.
In addition to their great fruit desserts, they offer 14 flavors of Thrifty’s Ice Cream, numerous fruit sorbets, smoothies, Acia bowls, and a few hot dishes like tortas and nachos.
Their assorted fruit desserts are what makes them special though. The walls are lined with pictures of them because the menu descriptions can not do them justice.
Desserts Clockwise from top left ~ Chamango, Raspado, Acia Bowl , and Papas Preparadas.
All their desserts are extremely reasonable and made to order. Mine was $6.50 and huge…….
Pepino Prepadado ~ Cucumber, jamica, papaya, cacahuates japoneses (japanese peanuts), Pica Fresca, hot sauce, and chili powder.
Just a taste and texture sensation. Sweet fresh fruit, crunch from the peanuts, chew from the candies, sourness from the lime juice, and heat from the chili powder and hot sauce. It was not too sweet, it was very vibrant and fresh tasting. Just a great dish.
I will definitely be back to try more or their creations.
1450 North Santa Fe Ave., Vista
