This is a soul food restaurant like no other. Fried chicken and waffles towering toward the ceiling in amazing platter presentation. Enough food for three people or more. They actually send the food home left overs in a grocery bag! Not only that but it tastes phenominal! Because of portion size this is well worth the price.
Favorite Dish: Chicken and Waffles!
With a sleek contemporary interior design and a warm bar area, the Hash House is a great eatery in San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood. Their theme is fresh ingredients with rosemary taking center stage...not necessarily in the dishes but certainly as a garnish. You can't go wrong her at any time of the day. I've had breakfast, lunch, and dinner and all are marked by the creative and downright tasty dishes. How can you go wrong with the likes of Andy's Sage Fried Chicken w/ maple reduction, 2 eggs, bacon mashed potatoes & biscuit
or one of the Hash House Farm Benedicts (e.g., the HH original w/smoked bacon, fresh tomato, fresh spinach,roasted red pepper cream and topped w/ two basted eggs) from the breakfast menu. Or how about the Kokomo Sandwich (griddled meatloaf, roasted tomato and smoked mozzarella on old fashioned milk bread) for lunch. Dinner has even more wonderful dishes such as the Roasted Butternut Squash which comes stuffed with risotto and crowned with cornmeal crusted rock shrimp & sundried tomato olive oil and the spectacular Sage Fried Chicken with a hardwood smoked bacon waffle tower, hot maple caramel & fried leeks.
And the portions are big, huge, OK ginormous! You'll be taking some home so you may want to try and save some room for dessert, which I can't comment on because I've never had room! They also have daily specials which are sure to feature the freshest ingredients available that day and also a nice wine list.
Favorite Dish: Sage fried chicken...you can't beat that waffle tower!
When most people talk about a good breakfast spot, it's usually some greasy spoon that has been around for 75 years... and there is nothing wrong with that. But the Hash House is truly a new and unique breakfast joint. The portions are obviously the first thing you notice but even if the portions were normal sized, the food would still be tremendous. I had a skillet breakfast with portobello mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, asparagus, goat cheese, a couple of eggs in there... awesome. Others had more traditional pancakes, waffles, eggs... all great. But back to the size... the pancakes draped over the edges of the plates which were some of the largest platters I've ever seen. With the exception of the 5 egg omelet at BoBo's Bonanza in Lone Pine CA, I can confidently say that this is the largest breakfast you will ever eat, or at least try to. Orange juice was sweet and fresh and all the prices were very reasonable.
Friends of ours just got married and wanted to spend some down time with our school buddies...so we met up at the Hash House. It's a wonderful establishment with first-class service.
Favorite Dish: Prices might be a little on the high side but you get an abundance of food for the money. You start off with these huge homemade rolls that come with butter and honey. The entree selections are many (seafood, pork, beef and poultry) so I chose the Grilled Pork Tenderloin (w/bacon mashed potatoes, caramelized pecans, hot honey mustard) while LJ had the Crispy Salmon/Blue Crab Cakes (with sweet & spicy bbq and wild mushroom mashed potatoes).
All meals are delicious at this funky place, but breakfast & lunch are the 'true' experience. Prices are roughly $5-$10 for huge portions. Expect a wait! Dinner's good too but more pricey - $15 and up for entrees.
Favorite Dish: Impossible to pick just one item - amazing homemade mac n' cheese, biscuits, crab cake sandwiches with spicy chili mayo, blueberry pancakes the size of your plate, and amazing egg scrambles - to name a few yummies!
