A classic potato hash from Sweden is called Pytt I Panna and Broder Cafe in southeast Portland provides the perfect ambiance in which to experience it! Served in individual mini-pans, almost Le Creuset-like, the attention to detail was amazing – small dice, pickled beets, precision baked eggs and wonderful flavor.
I had the Smoked Trout Hash, which was perfectly cooked, full of flavor and filling. Some restaurants serve a bigger portion, but this was perfect. Plus, it left room for the little treats they sell, ginger snaps with crystallized ginger – yum!
If you go there, be sure to get there promptly at 9 a.m. when they open to enjoy the neighborhood vibe and excellent service.
