The Dish: Hangover Special
Where To Get It: Dacha Beer Garden’s weekend brunch menu, 1600 7th St. NW; (202) 350-9888; dachadc.com
What It Is: Dacha offers a heap of hangover relief every weekend. The beer garden’s “Hangover Special” is a dish that could be split between two people, but is also perfect for anyone riding the struggle bus on Sunday. A mound of kimchi, chicken sausage, and home fries comes topped with bacon and fried eggs.
How It Tastes: Dacha brought in Chef Sasha Felikson, formerly of Doi Moi, to revamp their menu in March. The hangover special combines a wide array of flavors. The fermented kimchi adds acidity and spice, and there’s a heavy helping of slightly salty potatoes. But the true winners are the toppings—two slabs of bacon and runny eggs.
Why It Helps: The hangover special is literally an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink breakfast to relieve you from your dark post-drinking hours. The eggs and chicken sausage will revive you with protein. Meanwhile, the spicy kimchi and potato starches will help to tame an upset stomach. And when you’re ready for it, order up das boot—a refreshing German Kölsch—because a little hair of the dog never hurt anyone.
