Best Of Food 2013: A Vote For Potatoes Is A Vote for Breakfast

Best of Food 2013April is the polling month for the epic democratic nonsense that is Prairie Dog’s annual Best Of Food reader’s poll! Pick up a copy of the latest ‘Dog for a list of the categories, or just head here to vote for your favourite restaurants, meals, bars and pubs, and food people right now! The more votes we get, the more fun and meaningful the results will be.

I’m so excited about Best Of Food 2013 that I’m going to showcase one category every day until voting ends next week. Today’s spotlight: Best Hash Browns.

I love hash browns! These fried breakfast friends are so delicious! True hash browns are a fried-up pile of shredded (hashed) potatoes but the term also applies to fried chunky potatoes, fried cubed potatoes, deep-friend potato patties and pre-formed fried heart attack nuggets. They’re salted, seasoned and often have fired fried onions mixed in. Yum! Hooray for hash browns!

What restaurant served Regina’s best hash browns over the last 12 months? What place has the hash browns you’d want to feed your sexy, potato-loving  breakfast date? Let everyone know by voting in Best Of Food 2013!

(And if you don’t give a hoot about hash browns you should still vote, because s0meone’s going to win $500 in gift certificates to some of Regina’s best restaurants. It might as well be you!)

  1. “They’re salted, seasoned and often have fired onions mixed in.”

    Is that a typo or are ‘fired onions’ a culinary delight I’ve not encountered yet?

  2. Since the departure of the Quality Tea Room, Novia Cafe, Pavlo’s, Regina’s been a wasteland for good breakfast options. Plus the kids are calling breakfast “brunch” nowadays anyway. WTF up with that?

  3. BTW, even the Sears cafeteria closed, the Bay cafe is either being remodeled or turned into a laundromat, the City Hall cafeteria is apparently closing, and the Luther cafeteria long ago stopped servings it’s awesome “Texas-style” breakfast for the grossed-out buffet.

    Instead of “Best Breakfast” you should do a feature on the “War on Breakfast”…clearly gross breakfast sandwiches are taking their toll. Thank goodness for Henry’s, tho the 9-11 breaky hours are challenging.

  4. It’s a horrible, narcissistic habit, but I couldn’t stand having something so facile ‘corrected’ on me. It was like this job I had once, when my boss watched me type over my shoulder and “helpfully” corrected me every time I made a “typo” (meaning that I suck at typing) before having a moment to correct it. That drove me crazy, practically drove me out of that job altogether.

  5. Best hash browns…um, my house of course! The problem with that while it is great for me it does mean there are no reservations accepted and they aren’t for sale. Nuts to everyone else. ;)

    BTW, thanks for the reminder I finally voted.

  6. Actually Talbot, the Mercury Cafe in Cathedral has a pretty decent breakfast (or brunch). You should try it out. And no, I don’t own it or work there, just thought it was pretty good. But, if Sears and the Bay were the highlights of your breakfast experiences, I just received a flyer from A&W which shows, right on paper, that they serve some sort of traditional breakfast with bacon, eggs and toast for only $4.50 or something like that.

    Pavlo’s was good, too bad it’s gone. Before it was Pavlo’s it was a confectionery where you could buy cigarettes underage for 5 cents each. Little known fact.
