Yak Steak?

Any place serving yak in steak form?

The Himalayan places (like Tibet Nepal House) have yak in various forms of ground patties or stew, but not steak.

Any ideas?

  1. Not that I am aware of.

    Check with the supplier. AFAIK, there's just the one.

      1. sells yak steaks from a family operation in Colorado that raises them.

          That link takes you to the exact same place I linked above that is out in Perris, CA (local to the LA board for chow - and if you like to skydive you can do that too). I wonder what happened to the Colorado connection?

          California Retail Store

          Exotic Meat Market
          130 West Walnut Street,
          Unit A 5
          Perris, CA 92571

            I'll try to dig out a better link to the Colorado yaks, said to be well bred and fed, with healthy meat.
            My parachuting days were limited to 22' round silk parachutes with toggles for the modification. I can't keep up with these young kids and their sport chutes.

              Just reading this for the hell of it, and suddenly found that source for adult guinea fowl that has been eluding me for over 20 years! Thank you, Servorg, thank you! The best D'Artagnan could come up with was a tiny pintadeau for $20 or so, hardly worth eating … duly bookmarked!

              Okay, back to yaks.

          2. Thanks for the leads everyone, but I was more interested in restaurants that serve yak steak.

            Given my schedule these days, I'm hard-pressed to find time to boil water at home, much less dress and cook up Yak.
