CloverEats: Ann Arbor’s Blue Tractor!
In my imagination, most tractors are either red or green. I’m not sure why I have that particular picture, but it’s just what I imagine when I close my eyes. Regardless, Fred and I went to “The Blue Tractor” for dinner the other day, and I loved the rustic ambience. Wooden walls, dim lighting, and plenty of photos of the restaurant namesake.
We started off with some delicious sweet tea and a “Port of Refuge” – rum, lime, sprite! There is just something so refreshing about sweet tea, whether after a hot run in the summer or a brisk walk in the snow. Again, Fred’s zerg tshirt makes an appearance.
If I remember correctly, this meal was right after a workout, so we were both craving meat! Fred got a barbeque burger and I got a kalbi plate with sweet potato fries and a kimchi salad. Unfortunately, while tender and warm, my “kalbi” tasted nothing like kalbi, and the “kimchi salad” tasted nothing like kimchi. I guess that’s what I get for ordering Korean food at a restaurant called “The Blue Tractor.”
That’s not to say the food wasn’t good; rather, the meat fell off the bone the way a good slab of baby back ribs should, and there were four different barbeque sauces to choose from! One was sweet, one was sour and spicy, one was mustardy, and one was tomato-y, if my memory serves me correctly. The sweet potato fries were also delicious!
Our dessert, a big bourbon milkshake that, despite our best efforts, we were unable to finish. Check out “The Blue Tractor” on Yelp or their official website! And happy new year!!
