Large, fried mound of chicken hash, topped with scallions and served with scrambled eggs and a biscuit. $11.75 Ella’s – San Francisco
This amazing ball of chicken hash was pretty frickin’ tasty! It appeared to contain roast chicken pieces mixed with mashed potatoes, breaded(?) and pan fried. The chicken was super tender and flavorful. Whenever I’ve recooked roast chicken in something else, it always gets dry but the cooks at Ella’s have discovered the secret to moist chicken in this hash. SO good! Their biscuits are also noteable. They’re warm, fluffy, and so good topped with butter and jam. You deserve an applause if you can finish the entire plate.

With pasilla peppers, pulled pork, corn relish, jack cheese, and chipotle crema. Served with potatoes and wheat toast. $12.75 Ella’s – San Francisco
I thought this omelette was OK. The filling was really runny so that turned me off from the start. The egg also had a weird, plastic-y texture. There is no arguing that you get your money’s worth though – it was gigantic! It tasted fine, but I wish that the flavors had more punch. The whole thing tasted somewhat bland. The potatoes were just OK, too. I definitely had to used some ketchup to add more flavor. I have to say that my favorite part of my order was the thick wheat bread that came with it. Is that sad?
