My family is in town right now. And I love it. But its putting me a little behind on blogging and project completing. So today (instead of finishing my foyer wall for you), I’ll share a some quick info about a spot that is fun to take family when they visit Las Vegas. Or hey, for the rest of the world, a great food joint (I find it hard to call it a restaurant) to visit that can cure that late night, partied-too-hard, need something ridiculous to eat, tummy ache. (By the way, my second choice for this is In-N-Out).
Hash House a go go is a go-to in my book. There are a few locations here in Las Vegas, and one right in the action on The Strip, but the last time we stopped in we visited the Downtown location inside the Plaza Hotel & Casino. Not the fanciest stop in Vegas, but A LOT of character (and characters). This can’t be beat if you’re planning a walk down Freemont Street to view the crazies or heading over to see the infamous Gold & Silver Pawn (from Pawn Stars fame and which is why we were Downtown that day). This Hash House location is right by the Smith Center (a performing arts/concert venue) and Children’s Discovery Museum, too, if that’s your kinda thing (it’s our kinda thing so it should be your’s, too).
They dub their fare “twisted farm food” and it’s twisted all right. Deliciously twisted. My brother-in-law and I shared one of their most famous dishes… the pork tenderloin benedict. It is a RIDICULOUSLY giant amount of food and I’m not sure what BBQ cream is, but I’ll have some to go, thankyouverymuch.
The hubs had corned beef hash and it was AMAZING! I’m not usually a big fan of the chopped up, seems-like-it-came-from-a-can hash, but this was different. Big chunks of corn beef and yummy breakfast potatoes. Good stuff.
My kids had pancakes, which were the size of my FACE and we enjoyed every bite. I rounded out my brunch with a bloody mary.
So if you head to Vegas for business or pleasure, or you’re a local like me and need a breakfast spot to try out, hit up Hash House a go go. You won’t be disappointed.
We’re off to Sequoia National Park this weekend. Any Mother’s Day plans? If you’re in Vegas you should go-go to Hash House for brunch!
