Best Hashbrowns in Los Angeles Area

lowerkased Jun 22, 2008 09:48 AM

Ok, Folks! I'm hungry and in search of some REAL food. A good old pancake diner, nothing fancy. Please help me in locating the best hashbrowns in the Los Angeles area. I know it's a hard request, because a delicious crispy shredded potato is a dying art. Home fries or The Pantry need not apply.

      Agree with S & W, on Washington in downtown Culver City, ordered well done or extra crispy. Really crisp on the outside, without being burnt, and tender on the inside. Available as one of the side choices in their combo breakfasts, though their pancakes are also quite good. Homemade corned beef hash. Avoid their biscuits unless you like the really cake-like kind cut from a loaf. Cash only.

          I love the hashbrowns at Meditirina on Abbot Kinney, they probably contain a whole stick of butter per serving and are delicious.

              Victor's Deli is either closed or closing. Good news, they're looking for someone to take it over. Interested?

              The very best hash browns I ever tasted were at the Tamo'shanter's brunch. They were perfectly brown and crisped to a fair thee well on the outside while still retaining their creamy potato goodness on the inside. Everything you could want in a hash brown but the very best and most unique thing is that they taste like they are fried in steak grease. Yummy.

                Though the place has sparked many a flame war here, and opinions vary greatly, I've found the hash browns at the new-ish The Waffle on Sunset to be pretty frickin' stellar.
