Avocado toast may be the most “basic girl” thing you can eat but if that’s what basic tastes like, call me Becky (sorry, Beckys).
Being from and living in Schenectady, the lack of parking options in Troy is intimidating to me. Troy has some great restaurants, and great places to see and I don’t visit there nearly enough. I decided to take the drive and see what I’ve been missing lately.
/EDIT – (Jan. 25) Superior Merchandise Company announced that they will be closing their physical location in Troy. They will continue to have a presence on social media to update as the situation changes. According to WTEN, “As the SM CO owners spend time figuring out how to transition digitally, they sadly report the last day of service will be April 2.”
Superior Merchandise Company (Superior Merch Co.) was always a place on my list that I’ve wanted to try so when I was in Troy, I had to go. It all started when some friends got together who wanted to serve “amazing coffee in a bright and friendly environment.” They opened in September 2015, and have been a community gathering space ever since.
I have to confess that this was my very first avocado toast and, friends, it was so good. I never understood the appeal until now, why did no one tell me? The avocado toast was “Two pieces of sourdough toast with olive oil, avocado, everything seasoning blend, house-pickled red onions, micro greens, served with a lime wedge.” It was perfect. The chai was homemade and you can tell in how delicious it was.
It was also the first time I’d experienced a treat from Bard & Baker and now, more than ever, I have them on the top of my list when things start opening up again!
If you’re in the neighborhood of Superior Merch Co. give them a try. Everything is fresh, delicious, upscale but reasonably priced (I just gotta get there next time when they have CBD chocolate in stock).
