With road trip season in full swing we decided to head south to Connecticut over the holiday weekend for one of our favorite breakfast places of all time. Our story begins back in 2006 when my wife and I were on vacation in San Diego, California. As many of you know we are always looking for great places for breakfast so we feverishly search for the best local joints when we travel. During this quest I stumbled upon Hash House a Go Go as the favorite. We stopped by and the wait was something like 45 minutes. After passing the time chatting with the locals, we had what was one of the best breakfasts of our lives.
Back to present day - my wife was online and noticed that someone had recommended this great place Hash House a Go Go in Las Vegas. She thought that this was a mistake and that it couldn't possibly be the same place that we remembered from so many years before. Doing a search, she discovered that this restaurant had expanded and was now in New England at Mohegan Sun. Without speaking a word we both knew that it was Time for a Road Trip.
Arriving at Mohegan Sun later in the day (around 12:30 pm) was well after our usual weekend breakfast time and we were starving. We walked through the casino wondering if we would ever find the restaurant. They have nice electronic map to help you navigate and we were soon at our destination.
The restaurant is known for their very large breakfast portions so bring your appetite. In addition to several kinds of hash they also have scramblers, benedicts, flapjacks and waffles.
Corned Beef Hash with onions, peppers, and Swiss cheese. This is definitely not out of a can. Now that is a real breakfast!
Looking for something to do, well, the restaurant is smack dab in the middle of a casino so if gambling is your game you won't have to go far.
For dessert take a short trip to Mystic for some of the best cupcakes at Li's Bake Shop
