There was a query in a thread a ways ( Waaaayyy back!) back about good corned beef hash in the area. finding real home made hash is one of my long time obsessions, and I'd like to share what I know and ask for any other info.
1. s&s (inman sq )-home made & real, served in a chafing dish and not as crisped on the grill as would be ideal, but yummy none the less.Have become addicted to choosing bagel w/creamcheese instead of toast & loading hash on top( guilty pleasure).
2.Towne diner ( mnt auburn, watertown ) Had hash here many years ago, a little unusual and VERY homemade seeming, but good. Lots of stuff other than potatoes & c. beef ( bell pepper, onions etc.)like something you would cook at home with leftovers( not a bad thing).
3. Kelly's diner (broadway,somerville)-my vote for overall best! Classic,simple, real, WELL crisped on griddle, edges had that wonderfull " Cringly " ( as Allison would say )texture, excellent complement for poached eggs, good homemade Scali bread toast too. Lets one excuse the fact that this is an old diner but moved there recently.
4. Percy's ( " biggest breakfast menue in Mass. ")5 locations on cape & south shore - Also very good, classic, real, not quite as well crisped on griddle as kelly's , but runner up for me. great brkfst overall.
please let me know of any others.
