Corned Beef Hash

kaleokahu | Feb 1, 2014 09:37 PM

So, on a serendipitous fluke, I found my self at the Mecca Cafe in Lower QA for breakfast this morning. I hadn't been there in maybe 20 years, considering it the less foodie and more alchie cousin of The 5 Point. Maybe 35% of the choices, none of them partiicularly imaginative...

My God! The best corned beef hash I've ever had.

I'm normally a fan of a big, meaty dice, eschewing the dog food-like fine grind style. Mecca does it a fine *mince*, with hashbrowns as the tater component, and similarly-minced onion and green pepper. There must've been something else, too, because the umami quotient was ineffably high. Browned to perfection.

If anyone thinks they know a better CBH, I want to know. I've had 5 Spot's Flannel, and it's nowhere near what I experienced today.

Aloha,
Kaleo
