Tucked away right by the Morse red line stop is a neighborhood gem that serves inexpensive Korean-influenced fare. "Susie," a Korean hahlmuhnee (grandma), runs the one-woman show by taking orders, preparing and cooking the food, serving the dishes, accepting payment (cash only), and busing tables.

We headed out for dinner and I asked Stan what he was in the mood for -- greasy or healthy. What a stupid thing to ask! We ventured out to the best drunk food place Hash House a Go Go, right on State Parkway off the crazy Division bar strip. It was his first time there, so I suggested he order their "New York Times Favorite" Sage Fried Chicken & Waffles that comes with an outrageous heaping waffle tower. Unfortunately, the server was new, so she made a mistake and I didn't realize until re-reading the menu just now, that he actually received Andy's Sage Fried Chicken. Honest mistake since both dishes feature their prized fried chicken.
I wasn't in the mood for greasy and was pleasantly surprised that they had a few healthier options. The hash house salad with grilled salmon was perfect for me and I was pretty surprised that it was modestly-priced, considering the neighborhood. Since Hash House is situated just a bit north from the flashy, place-to-be-seen, ritzy restaurant hub of Viagra Triangle, it was relatively empty, which is not such a bad thing.
