Sausage Hash at Cafe Murrayhill in Tigard

The majority of my hashcapades, excluding Chez Clark, of course, involve a commute from the Bethany area to downtown Portland. Today I wanted something close because 1) I was at Washington Square a.k.a. consumer-mania-ville and 2) my stomach wasn’t about to put up with any delay! Fortunately, I recalled Cafe Murrayhill was only minutes away off of SW Scholls Ferry and SW Murray, so off we went.

Cafe Murrayhill – A Hidden Gem in Suburbia
Cafe Murrayhill’s back section looks out on a fountain and blooming trees.

Tucked away on SW Murray Scholls, close to SW Teal, Cafe Murrayhill is a charming escape from cookie-cutter restaurants. My fellow brunch aficionados were happily chatting or tucking into their delicious-looking meals as we entered. The dining room stretches to the back of the building, offering a view to a fountain and blooming trees. Most folks seemed to enjoy the pastoral scene on a lazy Saturday and occupied the prime spots. I made a mental note of the wine and dessert counter as we walked to the back – I’ll have to come here in the evening and have a glass of wine, dinner (I hear their Ahi is delicious) and dessert!

Sausage Hash – its short name belies its sophistication

Several months ago, I compiled a list of over 40 restaurants offering some sort of potato hash. I quickly lost count of the ones offering corned beef hash and started capturing different versions – duck confit, pork belly, root vegetables, smoked trout and pulled pork. This hashcapade was about Sausage Hash – plain and simple, at least from the title. What arrived was actually sausage, roasted potatoes, roasted red peppers, and two eggs over-easy topped with a cajun hollandaise sauce  The cajun hollandaise coupled with the roasted red peppers really won me over – spicy, complex, roasted goodness. As a bonus, a fluffy, tasty biscuit accompanied the hash, completing the total food coma that I was blissfully experiencing!

On the way out, I chatted with the general manager, Bob Corser, and let him know that the Sausage Hash was a keeper. My plan is to return to slowly discover the other dishes of this hidden gem in Beaverton.

Happy Hashcapades,
