Orange Chicken is one of those asian dishes that took me a while to warm up to. Not just literally, but it almost confused me at first.

It's orange, so it's citrusy. But also spicy? Is spicy orange a thing? I've heard of sweet spicy like hot cinnamon like those cinnamon gummy bears or red hots. And I've also heard of sweet citrus like orange candies. Even citrus mint like those orange
Tic Tacs. But once I tried orange chicken I understood it. And it doesn't have to be spicy, but I do like a bit of heat when it makes sense.

We found ourselves at Why Not My Thai Kitchen in Yakima. Since I work across the street from there I find myself there ever so often but usually for the same thing -- spring rolls. Spring rolls and sometimes mango sticky rice because, well, mango sticky rice.

We had to grab a couple of things from Walgreens and suggested 'since we're already here and parked' we walked over and it gave me a chance to look at the menu.

I have ordered other things from this place before like the wonton soup when I was sick or the pho which is always a good idea. Since I was dining in I figured I'd order something that makes the most sense to eat it on location.

You see, sometimes when you order something by the time you get home it's not exactly the same. You may have experienced this when you get fries in a container but when you get home they're not as crisp as you'd like.

I tried the orange chicken and wasn't disappointed. I only got a medium heat which could have been hotter but I played it safe as I never know with some places.

Each piece of chicken was perfect and a little crispy. It wouldn't have stayed crispy had I have brought it home in a container. It also came with a side of rice which would help if I did get it hotter than a medium to have the rice absorb any oils or whatever was still left in my mouth to help wash down and deal with later (so to speak).

If you find yourself dining in at Why Not My Thai Kitchen on 40th and Summitview, know that I approve of the orange chicken. I'm looking forward to trying more items on the menu next time.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
