Tin Shed (Brunch)

 
 
Tin Shed (Brunch):
 
For all the dog lovers out there, this is the brunch spot for you. If you own a dog or want to bring your dog they have a separate room off of the kitchen/bar that is where they keep everyone with their dogs. You might have to wait though, we waited for a little over an hour. I’ll take the blame for that one as I only saw the top of the page we had signed and not seen the other page that they were still working through. The nice thing though is that you can write your phone number down and they will give you a call once your table is ready.
I had the Big Hit Burrito with no Sweet Potato (Not a fan personally) and added avocado. I went ahead and split the additional items so I got a small order of cheese grits and a potato cake. I also ended up ordering an additional biscuit. As whole this was a fantastic brunch.
I have never had grits before and I wasn’t really sure what to expect so I can’t really compare those to anywhere else to really judge how good they were. The potato cake was delicious and went with everything.

The main dish, the burrito was definitely good but I also felt like it was missing something. I ended up ordering a side of pico de gallo so add and I felt like that was a good addition. They have a hot sauce called the Tin Shed hot sauce but I’m a bit of a pansy when it comes to anything spicy. It tasted great, it’s carrot based, but it was a little too much for me to handle if I was going to be adding it consistently. I think this wold have be the perfect addition to make this burrito great.

My favorite part of this meal was the biscuit. It was easily the best biscuit I have ever had. I added butter and raspberry jam, which is set out on each table, to the biscuit. It was fluffy and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Ally got something that wasn’t on the menu but something she had had before. It was a vegan dish that had tofu, vegan sausage, with pico de gallo, all mixed in a chipotle sauce. Fresh sliced avocado on top, 2 potato cakes, and 2 slices of bread. I tried a little of this one before I filled up on my own brunch. This was definitely my favorite of the two meals. The chipotle sauce was just spicy enough that it wouldn’t overdue it for me and I’d be able to enjoy the meal.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this brunch spot for anyone. The wait was a while but as I’ve learned in Portland, it doesn’t matter where you go, the wait is going to be a while. Go give it a shot!

Cheers!
