Yuhpa's used to be located on Elliot and Hardy, making it the perfect place to stop after a rock climbing session at Climbmax Rock Gym. They picked up and moved to Elliot and McClintock a couple years back and the few extra mile drive did not stop me from continuing the tradition.
When I first started eating here, I found it to be a very decent Thai place, serving all the traditional dishes. Pad Thai was good. Thai Curries were very tasty. Then I discovered they knew how to cook duck the right way, and it's all i've been able to order since.
If you go, I highly recommend the Ped Dang Gaeng, Crispy Roast Duck with coconut curry, thai basil, pineapple, peppers and tomatoes. I get it "hot", but not "thai hot" unless i'm feeling masochistic. If you prefer a sweet and savory duck dish, the Roasted Duck over spinach served with its own sauces, is also out of this world.
