Hash House A Go Go

Location: 1212 N State
Cost: About $20 per person

Maybe it was the way I was raised, but I'm pretty anal about being on time to things. As far as brunch goes, I have this growing anxiety that every minute we delay getting to the restaurant is a chance for the wait to double. Jenny doesn't seem to share the same urgency all the time. She often gets mad when I hurry her along, but what makes it worse is when we get there five minutes late only to be the first ones to arrive. Thus was the case a few weekends ago when Schneider, Julie, Jeremy, Ricky, and Rachel met us for brunch at Hash House A Go Go.

Note: my friends are the worst.

Hash House A Go Go is just north of Division on State in the heart of the Gold Coast. They have a large main level with bar and table dining alike. They also have a basement where we got sat along with some of the larger groups. Fortunately, we didn't have to wait too long despite the big crowd. Unfortunately, they were understaffed downstairs, and the meal moved along a bit slowly. The mantra of the menu is clearly the bigger the better. You end up paying around $16 per plate but get about twice the food of your average brunch spot.

The Food
Most everyone ordered either the Chicken and Waffles or the Chicken with Bacon Mashed Potatoes, Eggs, and Biscuits. The chicken comes out with this thick, crispy, fried coating and a maple syrup drizzle. I thought it was a bit dry but had a complex flavor profile. My biscuit was too dense. Jenny fought the mold by getting the Banana Pancake. As was the chicken, this portion was gigantic. It was one huge, thick pancake that kept a nice texture with plenty of bananas. I thought the mashed potatoes were an interesting twist on typical breakfast potatoes and were probably the best thing on the plate.

The Banana Pancake

I feel like I'm going to catch some flack for this, but I wasn't all that impressed with Hash House A Go Go. Everyone was all excited about the monstrous portions and the pumped up fried chicken breakfast dishes, but I thought quality took a big hit for quantity. The flavors were somewhat overwhelming while the textures of the biscuit and the chicken missed the mark. On the other hand, I'd eat those potatoes all day. I'm giving them 2 out of 5 Pearls.
