CloverEats: eat in Ann Arbor

Eat-7-2
We took a journey down Packard to visit “eat.”  I was extremely happy with the how the light just lit up these plants, making the center glass crisp, but fanning out with a lovely bokeh of leaves in the background.  I really love my 50mm f/2.5 macro lens, but it’s after shots like this that I really consider saving up for a f/1.2, so that the background can be even more creamy and smooth.  It’s funny how the vocabulary of food and photography sometimes overlaps.

This is a pretty hipster little joint, and the inside is quite narrow; most of the space is dedicated to the kitchen, with a storefront that’s just big enough to order in.  It’s cozy once you get settled in, especially if you’re lucky enough to get the lower table, but it can be hard to read the menu while maneuvering around other customers.  I did love the generous appearance of butcher paper, which was everything from the specials menu on the wall to the wrapping on our burger.  Flowers were scattered around the counters, providing a really nice, fresh feel to the location.

Reviews online rave about the Korean BBQ Beef Burger, so that’s what we started with.  The meat was tender, succulent, and the cucumber kimchi had just the right amount of refresh to balance out the heaviness of the meat.  The mac and cheese was lovingly baked, and the sweet potato salad complimented it perfectly.  Everything felt fresh and wholesome.  Apparently, “eat” used to be a food cart at Mark’s Carts, and it still has a bit of that vibe, especially with the somewhat claustrophobic front.  Luckily, their food is delicious and they’re well equipped to pack up a meal for carryout.
