On a recent return trip to Hash House a Go Go at the Linq in Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to sample some more offerings from the restaurant’s (literally) giant menu. Hash House is one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas, not only due to the large portion sizes offered on all their menu items but because the food is always fresh and loaded with high-quality ingredients. Service is always friendly and the staff seem to take pride in what they offer.
This time, I decided to try one of Hash House’s farm benedicts. Specifically, I went with Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken benedict (because who can say “no” to fried chicken smothered in gravy and bacon?). Of course, I should have known even before I ordered the massive pile of delicious breakfast foods that there was no way in the world that I would be able to finish it. Then again, that fact alone would still not have stopped me from giving it the old college try.
As expected, my order contained a lot of food. However, no part of the meal was simply there to fill space, so to speak, and each component complemented its counterparts very well. The gravy was rich but not overpowering. The chipotle flavor gave the entire plate a slight kick but was not overbearing on the palate. The fried chicken was crisp and the meat was moist. The biscuits were warm and soft, which paired nicely with the gravy and mashed potatoes. Of course, the bacon was terrific as well but that is because bacon is quite simply a food of the gods. There were even a few slices of fresh fruit placed on the side of my plate (where they remained for the entire meal).
After I had finished what I could, I sat defeated but happy in the booth where I lay my fork and knife to rest. It was a great start to a great day, even if I already felt like taking a nap at 9:30 in the morning. Alas, I did have things to do that day, so rest was not on the horizon for me.
Once again, I was not disappointed and Hash House a Go Go continues to be one of my places of choice to eat when it comes to any meal. The price is decent. The portions are great. The food is fresh. You cannot beat that, especially in the tourist trap that the Las Vegas Strip can be at times.
