In Hood River, you will find people who have traveled to this outdoor haven from all over the world. As such, you will also find cuisine that has made its way here from every corner of the globe. You are never far from exquisite Italian, Mexican, and Asian cuisine, among many others. One cuisine that does not find itself among the most popular, Swedish cuisine, is represented as well, thanks to the services of Broder Ost, one of the most unique restaurants in all of Hood River.
A One of a Kind Culinary Experience at the Broder Ost Restaurant
The first thing you will notice about Broder Ost is the modern and open design of this space, making it ideal for gathering with groups of all sizes. The space is very important, but it does not hold a candle to the importance of this menu that forges a path of its own through the culinary gauntlet that is Hood River.
The first thing you will see for breakfast are the classic baked egg skillets. For some incredibly unique flavors, go for the Swedish Hash, which consists of diced potatoes sautéed with bell peppers and onions and served atop two baked eggs and pickled beets. Complete the dish by adding fresh trout, braised beef, or seasonal vegetables. You will also find signature breakfast options like seasonal fritters and breakfast sandwiches, but nothing compares to the Swedish Breakfast, which comes complete with a Danish rye, smoked trout, ham, a soft-boiled egg, and a yogurt granola parfait. There is no better way to start your day.
For lunch, you will find a whole new world of flavors. The Swedish meatballs tend to steal the show, and for good reason. But there is so much more to love here. The Smorrebrod is a classic consisting of four open-faced sandwiches adorned with ham, pickled beets, pickled herring, and pickled cucumber.
