Our last night in town, we went to Tasty n' Alder because of the rave reviews. Understandably so.
Normally, I hate places that don't take reservations, but if you're this busy, why turn away customers for people who make reservations and "may or may not" show up? When you're this good, you don't need reservations. We arrived shortly before 5:30pm, and there was a line already. But because it was still before 5:30pm, we managed to get seated.
As our first plate, we had the Goat Cheese Dumplings Arrabiata. It was a lot bigger than we had expected, but it was really, really good. The goat cheese really stood out.
As our meat, we had the House made Kielbasa because we thought, why go somewhere when you don't try something only they make? The kielbasa was pretty normal, nicely paired with the sauerkraut and mustard.
What stole the show was the Duck Duck potatoes. Fried in duck oil and topped with an egg. It was so rich and delicious we had it for breakfast again the next day.
As for dessert, we had their chocolate potato doughnut with creme anglaise. It was a little softer than a normal doughnut (i.e. Tuc), but still tasty.
Definitely recommend a visit. Will return if we're ever in the area with people who've never been.
