Jackalopes Restaurant in Tenaya Lodge

Jackalopes is a American style Bar and Grill restaurant inside the Tenaya Lodge just outside the South Gate of the Yosemite National Park. This was where we thought we had our real American food. (This statement is stereotyping. America is after all an migrant society

A Western Cosy Setting
The restaurant was cosy and had the western touch.

Buffalo Wings with Tartar Sauce
Without this appetizer it wouldn't be called our American meal.

Grilled Elk Steak with Beetroot and Asparagus
Elk meat is one of the more exotic meats that I've eaten so far.
Taste like the deer meat we can eat in Singapore but the elk
is just muskier. The grill was quite tender. I must be lucky
as I don't see it one the online menu anymore.

Pork Chops
Ade's pork chops had to be mentioned here. It was the biggest
piece of pork chops served on a plate that everyone of us had seen.

Yosemite was a disappointement for me. We've driven all
4 hours from San Francisco only to meet up with a snow storm.
Glad that we did made it for the Tunnel View and Bridal Veil Falls.
Although we were snowed in, we were still able to get decent
American cuisine in Jackalopes.

When we travel down the mountain of the Yosemite 
wilderness, vast patches of greens reappear. That's was
some kind of mountainous weather for me.

You wouldn't be here eating at Jackalopes unless you're visiting Yosemite National Park and staying at the Tenaya Lodge. Tenaya Lodeg may not be a budget accomodaion in the region, but I'll recommend to stay there as it is near the south gate of Yosemite National Park and the food inside the lodge was good.
