At The Yolk, I had to consider a trio of hashes — the homemade turkey hash, the homemade corned beef hash, and the homemade jalapeno hash — “you can only get it here!” says the menu.
It went with the jalapeno hash, which is almost too spicy for breakfast, but not so spicy I didn’t give it a dab of hot sauce to up the ante.
It’s a hash of potatoes, onions and jalapenos, lots of them, served with eggs any style (over easy for me, thank you) and what seemed to be slightly redundant hash browns.
And it would have been slightly redundant, were they not so good — hash with hash is OK with me.
On the side, there’s a freshly baked muffin of considerable girth and heft. It arrives sitting on a hunk of melting butter. It was probably a meal in and of itself.
There are 16 omelettes on the menu, many of which are a glorious exercise in culinary excess. The signature is made with Ortega chiles, tortilla strips, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, jack cheese and guacamole.
There’s a Raider’s Revenge with ham, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, onions, American cheese, guac and sour cream. Hummus Yummus has sundried tomatoes with goat cheese. And if you’re in the mood for some eggs Benny, there’s a model with crab and avocado, served only on weekends, making a special dish that much more special.
Really, you’ve got to love a restaurant that offers a plate called Gidget’s Favorite — one egg, two strips of bacon and two pancakes. Dear Gidget had to watch her waistline."
