Hash House A Go Go, Plano, Texas (where food is so BIG, you feel like a Lilliputian!)

Dining out should be about more than serving your hunger. If you’re going to spend the time and the money, it should be a fun experience. An exciting experience for not just the stomach but the mind. An experience you look forward to with palpitations. An EXPERIENCE!

Hash House A Go Go opened in Plano in March 2016, so for two years it has set a stunning precedence for quantity and quality that few establishments are able to match.    Exterior shot    The signature dish is Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles. Together, you ask? Yes! I respond–and it’s a combination to bring joy to your taste buds, a blush to your titillated lips, a wide-eyed astonishment to your face! This singular dish is gigantic.

The chicken is stacked and skewered to the waffle base in a culinary tower that, on occasion, defies gravity. And if it doesn’t arrive at your table teetering, it arrives solidly styled for immediate consumption.

The Sage Chicken is so popular, it struts to accompany Benedict’s, skewers, salads, sandwiches, regular eggs, and pastas. And yet more. It proves so tasty it sometimes stands alone.  Now THAT is the experience I speak of.

What else? There is Hand Hammered Pork Tenderloin (HHPT), and it has a story. You can read about it here.  The HHTP dinner is a salivary monument to taste, including caramelized onions (a weakness of mine), smoked mozzarella, Portobello mushroom, fresh spinach and charred tomato and barbecue cream. Sides with it are corn-on-the-cob and horseradish mashed potatoes. Makes me hungry just talking about it…

The delights of Hash House fare go on and on…hash in varied forms for hash lovers–chorizo hash, corned beef hash (nicely done with the corned beef in strips like decorative ribbons), chicken hash, mushroom and artichoke hearts hash, meatloaf hash, and shredded pork hash.  Each hash comes in a heavy cast iron skillet, with the meat nestled in a pile of crispy fried potatoes. Sometimes a homemade biscuit the size of a softball preens itself next to the hash.
