Any recommended Corned Beef Hash?

My mom used to make some pretty basic corned beef hash for lunch on the weekends when I was growing up. I've found some decent corned beef hash at Andy's Coffee Shop in Pasadena. It was good, tasty corned beef and well-cooked (read lots of crispy bits) potatoes, but it was nothing special. Anyone know of a place in or near the SGV that might have some corned beef hash that is a step up?

  1. The only place I know of for sure that makes their own CBH is not really handy to the SGV. It's the S&W Country Diner in Culver City, and quite frankly I prefer canned, but hardly anyone agrees with me. Their biscuits are surpassingly weird, too...

      Grill on the Alley in Beverly Hills is the Urasawa of corned-beef hash. $19.75, which is an expensive breakfast, but there you go - like Urasawa, it's around the corner from Rodeo Drive.

    2. Mike & Anne's makes a good corned beef hash.

        Hmmm, I had pretty much the most frustrating service experience I've had since moving to LA at Mike and Anne's (resulting in not even eating the food - but then who would eat at a place that can't even produce an appetizer after an hour and a half). I might give it another shot. Might....

        Rod's Diner on Colorado in Arcadia
        Leroy's on Huntington in Monrovia

        1. The Nickel Diner downtown has a pulled pork hash with poached eggs and I liked the corned beef hash I had at the Blue Star Diner just south of downtown on 15th Street.

            Interesting, I just had a very good pulled pork hash and eggs at 3 Square Cafe in Venice.

              Loads closer to me than Nickel Diner. Thanks for the heads up. Now 3 Square just has to steal the bacon donuts recipe from 3X3 and I'll never have to leave the security blanket of the west side again... ;-D>

          2. Jar makes a hash out of their stellar pot roast. Maybe not the salty sweet porky crunchy thing we are all used to - but seeing how most of their food is grand, I'd check it out!
