While searching hash tweets, I stumbled upon a tweet about Baja Chicken Hash. My interest piqued, I discovered that he scored his hashcapade at The Cheesecake Factory – holy frijoles! Turns out that Sunday brings out not only a Baja Chicken Hash, but a Crab Hash as well. Who knew?!?!

I’m not going to spend a lot of time talking about a restaurant chain like The Cheesecake Factory in terms of decor, funky atmosphere, or intimate booths. Nor will I talk about the funky neighborhood – it’s in a bloody mall! (sorry, offended Brits!) However, I will say that I expected a monster plate based on countless stories of mega plates of food after a mega wait. Happily, Alex and I were seated immediately and when the baja chicken hash arrived, it was just the right size. No leftovers for this guy (thumbs extended back at me)!

Let’s get down to business. The presentation was decent. I liked the fried tortilla on the bottom that provide a nice crunch with each bite. The chicken and chorizo were complemented by corn, red pepper, roasted poblano chiles, potatoes, green onions and cheese. Topping it all off was a poached egg smothered in a pseudo-spicy hollandaise sauce, which was somewhat sweet. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised – a decent hashacapade!
