Nick's Cafe ... best hash browns ever.

The title pretty much sums up my love of Nick's Cafe's hash browns.

It's shredded to a vermicelli-like size, then griddle fried to a crisp with no hint of grease, and then piled on your plate in a nice big round mound that reminds you of those old Chinese-American Cantonese chow mein dishes that came on a bed of crispy fried noodles.

Topped with some of their housemade salsa and I could eat this three times a day, everyday for the rest of my life. Heck, I'd be happy if you buried me in it as well.

While I didn't order it, my companion tried the corned beef hash raved about it. Said it was just like grandmama made it, which I took to be a compliment of the highest order. Had to try a bite and you could tell how it was made from fresh not canned corned beef because it was not mealy or mushy. I'm certainly not a corned beef has connoisseur, but this was definitely good stuff.

I've got to go during a Sunday when they offer specials like Eggs Benedict ...

Also brought home some of their housemade jalapeno ketchup.
