Good News for People Who Like Obscenely Large Plates of Unhealthy Food
A local outpost of the popular-in-Vegas chain Hash House a Go Go has what you're looking for.
If you’re the kind of person who loves to leave a restaurant with multiple doggy bags and then go rave on Yelp about how awesome the restaurant was because the portions are so big — OMG!!! I had enough for lunch and dinner the next day!!! — you might be interested in knowing that Hash House A Go Go is opening this week.
“The wait is over!” gushed a press release on Tuesday heralding the arrival of Hash House A Go Go at the Moorestown Mall in Moorestown, New Jersey.
You may have never heard of Hash House A Go Go before, but the comfort food chain, which started out in San Diego in 2000, has received a decent amount of press and it’s done the food TV circuit.
Below, the Man vs. Food host-glutton wows over the “legendary fried chicken eggs Benedict” and “pancakes that take four people to lift them”:
And here are some regular people doing their best to consume 10,000 calories of Hash House A Go Go grub:
The Moorestown location marks the twelfth Hash House A Go Go in the United States. Others are located in, among other places, the not-entirely-surprising locales of Las Vegas, Orlando, Texas and the Mohegan Sun Casino.
Naturally, burgers (most price out at $13.50) are served two at a time and stuffed with all sorts of things (because you clearly need burgers stuffed with mashed potatoes). The Hash House chicken-and-waffles, which have gotten a good share of the press, land at $21. For the really fussy eaters, there are $4 bowls of Captain Crunch and Frosted Flakes. All of a sudden, I feel like I’m at the Melrose Diner.
I have to admit… I was amused to see the O’Hare of the Dog on the breakfast menu. It’s a 25-ounce can of Budweiser served with six slices of bacon:
And I’m genuinely interested in checking out the Bloody Mary menu:
HH BLOODY MARY
w/ jalapeño stuffed green olives, blue lake green beans, fresh horseradish and black pepper
JOHNNY’S FAMOUS B.L.T. MARY
Deep Eddy Vodka, smoked bacon slice, rib of lettuce, bacon salt rim, trimmed with a big O’ tomato wheel and wheat toast
Ketel One, Clamato and housemade mary mix w/ grape tomatoes, jalapeño stuffed green olive, and rosemary garnish and a celery salt rim
Sauza Blue tequila w/ jalapeño stuffed green olives, blue lake green beans, fresh horseradish and black pepper
But as for the rest of it, y’all can keep the Godzilla-sized stuff to yourself. This ain’t Texas!
