Paul Bunyan breakfasts at Hash House A Go Go

I fell in love with their daily fresh homemade strawberry jam. This explains why I visited Hash House a go go (HH) the last three times I’ve been to Las Vegas. Although, the strawberry jam is meant to marry with their tall biscuits, I like to smother it on the plate size pancakes.

Hash House a go go in Vegas - Blueberry pancakeThe pancake size is for Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, novelty aside the pancake is fluffy and bounces back with a stab of the fork. I like the blueberry pancake (sans candied pecans as listed on the menu), lots of fresh boo-berries (as I like to call it).

Hash House a Go Go in Vegas - Corn beefIf there is corn beef hash on a taco truck, fancy restaurant, or a cafeteria I will order it. The server said everything is fresh, no canned, boxed or instant products at the joint because I hate the dog food mush-like corn beef. The corn beef hash is served on a cast iron skillet with melted Swiss and crispy potatoes. They are not kidding about the crispy potatoes, every single one and every side of the potatoes is crispy. This dish is not as gigantic as the others on the menu, a runt in comparison.

Funny and coincidentally, I was in town when Adam Richman from Man v. Food was filming in May 2009. He visited Hot n Juicy (I was dining the night he filmed, click here for blog post), Hash House A Go Go and the 6 pound burrito challenge at Nascar Cafe. Richman featured the Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Benedict and I was eavesdropping on a few tables, all of them visited because of the show and ordered the dish. I did the same.

Hash House A Go Go - Fried Chicken benedict

I’ve eaten my share of greasy, heart-attack-on-a-plate, bad bad food but the fried chicken benedict takes the cake and extra frosting. It belongs on This is why you are fat blog. Let’s start from the bottom:

-a layer of mashed potatoes
-sprinkle of fresh spinach
-a thick layer of smoked bacon
-fried chicken breast
-scrambled eggs
-a griddle melted mozzarella
-waterfall of cream chipotle sauce
-tomatoes here and there

If I was a angel I would have lost my wings, the combination actually worked together.

Hash House A Go Go - Fried Chicken Benedict

Hash House A Go Go - Bacon WaffleThe bacon waffles is four pieces with bacon cooked into the dough. A little too soft without the crunchiness I desire from a waffle.

Hash House A Go Go - Grilled MeatloafThe server recommended the meat loaf because it was her favorite at the restaurant. We ordered the grilled meatloaf, 2 eggs and mashed potatoes. The meatloaf was surprising tender with an herby flavor.

Hash House A Go Go - Biscuits and GravyThere is a split plate charge but a side dish may be ordered. We went for the biscuit and sausage gravy (as if the whole meal wasn’t rich and food colma inducing enough,) big chunks of sausage and very creamy.

I’m attract to HH because I don’t usually eat breakfast since I’m a night owl. As stated before I’m also attract to their homemade jam which is chunky with fresh fruit and not sweet. The portion is really scary, like Friday the 13th scary but it helps if you have someone or a group to help you eat.

At least it had spinach, a wedge of watermelon and a bit of orange - so the fried chicken benedict was somewhat healthy. Ha.

I'll admit it, I've never been a big fan of breakfast foods. In fact, I'm guilty of ordering hamburgers at 7:00 in the morning. But this post has just changed that. I'm craving waffles, pancakes, eggs, hash browns, and any other type of morning meal you can think of!! :)
