Taste Our Goods, Ann Arbor, MI

I’m now in the good company of Anthony Bourdain having finally tried Taste Our Goods (or “togs”, as my husband has lovingly dubbed it) in Kerrytown this weekend. Although, I think Mr. Bourdain had lunch there and I’ve tried their breakfast so far. This sweet little breakfast and lunch counter tucked into the back corner of Sparrow Market has a good thing going. What a creative menu and nice change from overpriced and overrated Ann Arbor diner breakfasts.
The woman who greeted us on Saturday was very friendly and helpful. She told us it would be about 10 minutes before our meals were ready and said they could bring it out to us or check back if we liked. We popped across the way to grab a table and get some coffee from Sweetwaters.
I tried out Taste or Goods’ Sweet Hash Dude, a great deal for only $7. Shredded sweet potato mixed with onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, dabbed with goat cheese and topped with eggs of my choice (I had them over medium); a fruit cup and a side of toast (Farmer’s for me) were also part of the deal. All I can say is “yum!”. Great flavors in the hash and the fruit, though mostly blueberries, was fresh and seasonal. I did have to request some jam to go with the toast, but this was a very tasty breakfast stop. I even liked the eggs which I don’t usually enjoy because it’s not my favorite food on its own.
I’m looking forward to a lunch visit soon!
