Corned Beef Hash

Saw Rachael Ray making Corned Beef Hash this morning which is making me crave a really good corned beef hash. Anyone know where to get to get really good hash? Neighborhood not a problem, but would prefer somewhere in the SoHo area.

  1. The only CBH I know of that isn't dog food from Sexton/Sysco is found in the Summit Diner, in Summit NJ. Take NJ Transit from Penn Station to Summit. Look for the railroad car diner across the street from the train station. Its not Soho, but Soho dosen't strike me as a place that knows from Corned Beef anyway.

      That IS a great diner. I also hope someone comes up with a suggestion for hash that is at least somewhat yummy in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

        You would think, with all that good corned beef laying around, that good hash would be easier to find. Actually, its easy enough to boil a potato, then dice it, some corned beef, and some onion and saute everything together yourself at home...

      1. The CBH at Veselka isn't bad. Could be a bit crispier. And the hash at the Second Avenue Deli, though hugely overpriced, is pretty good even though it has something weird in it that I can't rightly recall just now, like maybe peppers?

        1. Last time I was at Junior's on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, it was still the homemade (strips of beef, not oakmeal consistancy like from a can) that was about the only still-good thing there, since their cheesecakes turned to pure sugar.

          Any recent CBH lovers try it there?
