Since 2000, the Hash House has been serving up GINORMOUS portions of farm fresh food with a twist to the city of San Diego. Heaping plates of your favorite comfort foods and twists on down home classics are prepared fresh daily with locally sourced ingredients. The industrial feel of the place makes it urban and hip. We chose to eat outside on the patio.
I love salmon and pesto together or by themselves. When I saw the Salmon and Basil Pesto Scramble on the menu, I didn’t need to look any further. Farm fresh eggs were scrambled into a sea of salmon, pesto, brie and tomatoes. Each and every bite was savory and delicious. Crispy potatoes and a biscuit rounded out this dish. The biscuit was big as my hand and topped with a sprig of rosemary for an outstanding presentation.
Next up was a massive serving of the French Toast. All I can say about the french toast is “hold on to your socks”. It was served with Amish style bread that had been dipped in a heavenly mixture of banana cinnamon cream and drowned in a bath of luscious maple pecan syrup. To top it off they added a grilled banana and pecans for an over the top breakfast dish.
If that wasn’t enough to put us in a food coma already, we ordered the Tractor Driver Combo that came with eggs, sausage and a you guessed it; an out of this world sized waffle with bacon cooked right in! These weren’t little bacon bits tossed in the batter, I’m talking about full size strips of bacon cooked into the waffle. The sweet and rich syrup paired with the salty bacon was enough to send me over the top!
Even though we only ordered breakfast, Hash House has a wide variety of stick to your ribs meals that will have you spending the next week at the gym. Andy’s Crispy Sage Fried Chicken, Hash House Famous Meatloaf, and their Famous 1 Pound Stuffed Burgers are just a few menu items on my list for next time.
Now, just a few things you need to know before pulling up your chair to dine at the Hash House. The portions on everything are just HUGE, so you definitely want to share a dish or two with a few friends. My husband and I could barely finish on dish. Also this a very popular place for breakfast so the sooner you get there, the better. Grab a cup of coffee and a newspaper, and get your name on the list and relax for the next 30-45 minutes. They did open an addition dining room just a block up the road to handle the overflow. They serve the exact food and it’s just as good. So next time you are in San Diego, stop by the Hash House give them a try. I promise you will have a story to tell when you leave.
