Happy Meal | San Diego | Hash a Go Go

January 19, 2010

Hash a Go Go has been one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego for years and my last visit this past weekend was no disappointment. The out-of-towner who treated me to breakfast, the meal Hash is famous for, was equally impressed.

Our meal was a tour de fork of over-sized deliciousness.

The portions are unbelievably generous. You could feed a family of four for a year from one plate.

The food is Midwest wholesome·mixed with touches of Le Cordon Bleu. It turns out the chef -owner is from Indiana.

What do I mean? Hash a Go Go specializes in breakfast. The dish we ordered was Eggs Benedict with fried chicken with the intention of splitting it. We needed to swap out the bacon because we don’t eat bacon. One of our options was pheasant sausage which I found out is clean vs unclean meat. Who knew?

The staff is also a tasty combination. With all the black clothing and colorful tats, they look as if they’re rolling in the NYC in Soho or the Meatpacking district. Yet they are extremely friendly and they scrambled (pun intended) to provide everything we requested. They too may be future actors-models-musicians. But they are not the Bitter Bettys or Bills you find in LaLa. No le-tude here. Or should I call it LA-tude.


Breakfast runs from about $8 to $17, with most meals going for $11-$13. I strongly suggest that you share your entree. Two will still likely to end up with leftovers.

With the generous portions it was sad to see so many plates that returned to the kitchen only half eaten. I’m not ashamed to say that I left with a doggie bag.

Hash a Gogo also serves lunch and dinner, which I’ve never tried. That’s because for me and for Hash a Go Go,  breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

What’s on your plate?
