Hash House A Go Go (Las Vegas, NV)

It took one airplane ride, two taxis, two looooong city bus rides, and a whole lot of walking to make it the the locally infamous Hash House A Go Go. As with most of my Vegas experiences, the process of getting there was mildly painful, but the end result was so worth it! And I would do it all over again, easily, just to enjoy the Snickers Flapjacks and Sage Fried Chicken Benedict.

The flapjack (that's “pancake” to us Canucks) was at least 14 inches in diameter and came loaded with pockets of melted chocolate, caramelized sugar, and toasted peanuts. Seriously good. For my fried chicken benedict, OK, here goes, starting from the bottom... a whack of mighty tasty mashed potatoes, topped with 2 amazing fluffy biscuits, then a layer each of griddled mozzarella, spinach, tomatoes, bacon, eggs, 2 HUGE pieces of delectable fried chicken, then fried hash browns, all crowned with a chipotle hollandaise. It was awesome! Do I need to mention that I wasn't even in the ballpark of eating the entire thing?

If you go, please take this advice to heart - these plates are for sharing! The photos do not convey the ginormousnous of these jaw-dropping portions. As I watched the madness being delivered to table after table, I was seriously wide-eyed the whole time. And lovin’ it. Everything in Vegas is designed to be a spectacle – even breakfast.
