This summer, when Vimy's Lounge and Grill implemented a new menu, one of the additions introduced was a yak-beef dip sandwich, served with au jus. Similar to a beef dip sandwich, the meat comes from a cross breed of yak and cow, known as dzo. It is a leaner meat, lower in saturated fat, with a sweeter, more succulent taste than the traditional beef.

Springridge Ranch in Pincher Creek, who are the local suppliers of yak-beef recently mentioned Vimy's in one of their blog entries- very cool! Check out some of the other pictures on their website, if you've never seen what these animals look like- very interesting, funny looking creatures- cattle with long, fuzzy tails... http://springridgeranchyakcrossbeef.blogspot.com/2011/07/yak-beef-dip-at-vimys-lounge-and-grill.html

Also noteworthy: the Edmonton Journal wrote an article about Springridge Ranch and raising dzo in southern Alberta, which mentions Vimy's as an innovator, being the first of restaurants to feature this tasty delicacy on their menu! http://www.edmontonjournal.com/life/Where+deer+shaggy+play+meat+sweet+juicy+revelation/5229010/story.html
