Last year, I ran a St. Patty’s Day 7K that took me right by the Custom Corned Beef factory at 26th and Walnut streets. That was my first introduction to the local company, which makes corned beef from a generations-old family recipe.

Since that time, thanks to Snooze‘s corned beef hash, I’ve discovered how much I love Custom’s offerings. Order the hearty dish for a breakfast of shredded corned beef hash, caramelized onions, roasted poblanos, two local eggs (we recommend sunny-side up), and the option of toast or tortillas.

Ditch the toast—which, according to co-owner Adam Schlegel, about 50 percent of diners do—and enjoy chewy tortillas made by Raquelitas Tortillas at 31st and Larimer streets. ballpark Who knew a hash breakfast could be so locally friendly?

Bonus: Snooze is about to expand. Look for a third outpost (this time in Fort Collins) to open in another month or so.
