Vegas always does things right. Like breakfast at Hash House a Go-Go. This place is ridiculous. The food is fresh and rich. The atmosphere, bright and airy. And the company? Well, a group of skeptics from TAM were the subject of this “morning after” experience.
This is the place where Adam Richman visited and famously devoured the Chicken Fried Benedict… Which is this Bad Mofo…
As always, the menu at a place like this is deep, expansive, and always difficult to choose from. It includes things like the “House Hashes” which contain your given gourmet meat or vegetable (meatloaf, corned beef, pork tenderloin…) topped with crispy potatoes and two eggs; Fresh scrambles like House smoked fresh salmon, basil pesto, fresh tomato and melted brie cheese; Uber-midwest words like “flapjacks” scatter the menu. If I had my own TV show I would definitely employ the “let’s order one of everything and have one bite of each.”
After much perusal, I “settled” on the “Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Benedict w/ maple reduction, 2 eggs, bacon mashed potatoes & biscuit…” Be still my beating heart. First, bacon and potatoes mashed? Ridiculous. The biscuit was as big as my head, light, fluffy, and supremely buttery. I got my eggs over-easy as I like the gooey middle. And the chicken… Light batter, but fully flavorful with sage, salt, and pepper. Th only way to attack this is to have a little bit of everything on one forkfull. The salty chicken and bacon potatoes, the sweet maple reduction, the juicy of the chicken and eggs with the denser biscuit… Heaven.
