Cowiche Canyon Kitchen + Icehouse and E.Z Tiger
written by Cara Strickland
The menu at E.Z Tiger advertises noodles, dumplings, cocktails and shelter. For Graham Snyder, a descendant of another Yakima Snyder you might remember from childhood bread, shelter means hospitality, a little bit of protection. When you walk into one of his restaurants, he wants you to know you’ll be cared for, something he refined during his time in the restaurant business in Los Angeles. That’s certainly the case at both of his wonderful spots, though they couldn’t be more different. Cowiche Canyon Kitchen offers fresh, innovative tastes of the region, while E.Z Tiger flawlessly borrows flavors from the Pacific Rim. The steam buns alone (with perfectly crispy pork belly inside, courtesy of chef Cameron Slaugh) are reason enough to return, but whatever you order, you can bet it’s made with care, and comes with a side of shelter.
