The key takeaways
- Geelong eatery Yeah Boy is opening a second location
- The venue has expanded into Melbourne, opening in Windsor
- The restaurant is renowned for inclusive dining, delivering a diverse-range of dishes, from plant-based eats through to slow cooked meats
Since opening its doors in Geelong West back in 2018, taking over the previous home of Pizza Religion, the venue has become a hot spot for inclusive dining, delivering a diverse range of dishes, from plant-based eats through to slow-cooked meats.
With the current owner of Geeelong’s venue Scott Mackay teamed up with Franchised Food Company (owners of Australia’s largest ice creamery and other Australian businesses), Yeah Boy has set up shop in Windsor, just off Chapel Street, ideally located for families and groups of friends alike to meet for dinner from across Melbourne – and for any Geelong locals to get their Yeah Boy fix of course.
Keeping any and all dietary requirements in mind, Yeah Boy serves up thoughtful food that a whole party can tuck into and feel satisfied – a difficult feat that Yeah Boy has proudly mastered.
Yeah Boy’s go-to items for diners looking to get their greens in include chargrilled broccoli with herbed tahini and a creative vegan take on san choy bao, while their most popular dish have been Yeah Boy’s Sexy Mexi Bowl, where each ingredient has been thought out to ensure they can stand alone – from the smoky chipotle corn to the jalapeno veganaise, and the charred-pineapple salsa.
Wholesome food is at the core of Yeah Boy’s menu no doubt; however, their inclusivity extends to dishes that will hit the spot for those keen to enjoy comfort food to fulfil any cravings. Signature dishes include the moreish vegan Mac and three Cheese comprised of smoky cheddar, queso, mozzarella and topped with gremolata; cult favourite Krispy Fried Cauli-Flower (KFC-F) served with jalapeños and house made BBQ sauce; and vegan watermelon sashimi and roasted walnut minced tostadas.
Yeah Boy’s inclusive approach means that meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, pescatarians and everyone in between can approach the menu with the same goal in mind: to enjoy a delicious meal that suits their dietary-preferences and lifestyle goals, without compromising on the vibes.
Round it all out with their extensive cocktail list (with the likes of Espresso Martini and Pomegranate Margarita), beers, wines, ciders and seltzers sourced from their birthplace in Geelong, as well as their range of non-alcoholic cocktails, kombucha, probiotic-soda, matcha and turmeric lattes, and of course, coffee, and you’ve got yourself a prime dining destination.
It’s no surprise there’s a desire for an establishment as unique and astounding as this in the city.
“I know we have a winner here. I travel a lot and Yeah Boy offers some of the best-tasting food I have ever enjoyed,” says Stan Gordon, CEO of Franchised Food Company Group.
“I believe everyone, from vegans to carnivores alike will be excited by the culinary offerings, as I was when I entered this venture.”
With concrete walls, moody lighting and a soundtrack of throwback tunes, Yeah Boy will be a welcomed addition to any Melburnian’s next night out.
The new venue is located at 2 Duke Street, Windsor and is open Monday to Wednesday from 5pm, and Thursday to Sunday from 11:30am. Visit the website for more information.
