This place is ridiculous, and I mean ridiculous in a good way.
On the last day of Vegas, our flight was late at night (booked specifically for that reason) so we got to explore more of Vegas before we flew home. We had a bit of a lazy morning where we finished packing and checked out of our temporary home at the Paris Las Vegas hotel (it was great!). We walked over to the Quad where we had brunch at Hash House A Go Go.
Hash House A Go Go is well known for serving “twisted farm food” and where a lot of their breakfast, brunch, and sandwich items have won numerous awards. One of their famous items was even featured on the travel channel’s “Man v Food” — you’ll see what it is as you continue reading this blog. ;)
Eric called ahead of time to make a reservation (thanks, Eric!) but when we got there, we still had to wait a little bit before we got seated. This was fine because the restaurant offered complimentary wifi that was fast too! Waiting time is never painful when you have free wifi. :D
In about 20-30 minutes, we were seated at a booth. There were a lot of people dining at this time too and we saw huge plates of gorgeously plated food coming out from the kitchen. We knew what we wanted to try from this restaurant: the very popular (and aforementioned famous) Fried Chicken Farm Benedict and the Corned Beef Hash.
Our monster Fried Chicken Farm Benedict arrived and we all spent a little bit of time taking pictures of it. It was seriously huge! I didn’t take a picture of it with myself to show you its proportion to me, but I’m glad that we only ordered two items to share because we couldn’t even finish it at all. (Why are American portions so, so large?!)
We divided up the items to eat; our server was very kind to give us two serving plates each so that the two flavours of the two dishes wouldn’t mix together as we split it up to eat. It was very thoughtful and I assume something he’s done that a lot for other guests who want to share these monster-sized portions.
I liked the Fried Chicken Farm Benedict more than the Corned Beef Hash. The Fried Chicken Farm Benedict was served on a fresh split biscuit with griddled mashed potatoes. I absolutely loved the griddled mashed potatoes. Mmm!! So flavourful and perfect. There was also fresh spinach, hardwood smoked bacon, market tomato, griddled mozzarella, chipotle cream, and scrambled eggs. The fresh spinach and scrambled eggs really added another notch to the dish. Yummy!! I can see why so many people order this dish — it looks absolutely amazing and tastes great.
The Corned Beef Hash was tossed with crispy potatoes and topped with two eggs and served with fruit and a biscuit. The three of us all like different kinds of eggs… sunny side up, scrambled, and poached. We ended up with poached because there was also scrambled eggs in the Farm Benedict. The Corned Beef was very smooth and tender. I would have loved it more if I wasn’t already so full from the first dish. The poached eggs were so incredibly smooth and well made. I still can’t believe how one person could finish this dish on their own because we all agreed that one of these dishes could last us three separate meals!
I’m very happy that I got to try this restaurant out. I wish we had more than three people dining as if we had one more, we would have been able to finish all the food at our table and may have ordered one more dish to try. (Hehe, major foodie here). I would visit this restaurant again to try more dishes! :)
