Hash Cornucopia at Cueva Bar in San Diego

50 Cities 50 Hashes: Malcolm May at Cueva Bar in San Diego!

My goal is to seek and enjoy some of the world’s most truly unique dining experiences, and being an avid social media user makes this goal much more obtainable. About a year ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Clark, a.k.a. @hashcapades, and he shared his 50 Cities 50 Hashes vision with me. I immediately saw this as an opportunity to delve into a new culinary arena, and experience some truly amazing food.

Hashcapade Peeps at Cueva Bar

There was only 1 person I could think of to help pull this off, the amazing Chef Osvaldo Blackaller of Cueva Bar in San Diego, centrally located in the University Heights.  Chef Oz is one of those people that just sort of brings this air of electricity to any room. From the first time I met him I was motivated with a new outlook and love for food, derived directly from his passion.

Chef Osvaldo

Our plan was to host the best hashcapade the world has ever seen, bringing food, fellowship and fun to San Diego. Chef Oz came up with this amazing menu which included Chicken Curry & Sweet Potato Hash (middle, below), Arugula with Goat Cheese Hash, Beef Brisket Hash, Smoked Trout with Balsamic Cream Hash, Beef Cognac Mushroom Hash (left below), Arugula Coffee Smoked Hash, Chorizo Hash and the ever popular New Mexico Hash Salad (right below).

My favorite hash hands down would have to be the brisket. Perfectly seasoned and matched with rosemary and Parmesan cheese on top.

Malcolm Mayor Osvaldo

We had the pleasure of being joined by his Honor Mayor Bob Filner (third from left) and staff, as well as many of the Cueva Bar faithful. The energy was electric and the food was ridiculously good. In speaking with our guests the common thread was the idea of a hashcapade was a genius way to introduce folks to this amazing food.

Malcolm May has lived in Southern California for the past 10 years. Originally from Wisconsin and hailing from a family of 7,  including a twin sister, Malcom is a seriously avid foodie who blogs about food conquests at missiontomanga.
