We built the kitchen in our retail store 18 years ago in the neighborhood between West University Place, Bellaire, Southside Place, and the Texas Medical Center. YAPA Kitchen Fresh Take Away is a market for prepared meals that you can take home ready to eat or you can have your meal in our café. We know you are busy and that you would love to have a home cooked meal. Let us do the cooking for you so that you can spend more time with friends and family. We deliver to your home or office. The name YAPA is a Spanish word from South America in Bolivia, Peru, and Argentina that means “a little something extra”. If you go to a Farmer’s Market in South America and buy a basket of tomatoes, the grower or vendor would give you a little taste or a little extra. We love this idea of sharing the bounty of our kitchen with you and your family. Come into our store and see what we are tasting today. Our knowledgeable staff can help you plan your next special event whether you are feeding two for dinner tonight or two hundred guests at your next office event!
