The Dish: Bison Huevos Rancheros
Where to Get It: Silver, 3404 Wisconsin Ave. NW, (202) 851-3199, eatatsilver.com
What It Is: A hearty helping of hangover relief is available any time of day thanks to Silver’s all-day brunch menu, which includes a take on a classic dish—huevos rancheros. Silver serves it with chorizo and bison hash mixed with rice. It’s topped with goat cheese, two over-easy eggs, fresh guacamole, peppers, and salsa rojo. Three giant tortilla chips come on the side for scooping, so no silverware is required.
How it Tastes: Every miserable start to the day needs a fiery burst of flavor to awaken the body and soul, and these huevos rancheros deliver. The cool and creamy guacamole and goat cheese cut through the heat and acidity of red peppers and salsa. But the best part of the dish is at the bottom, beneath a runny egg yolk. That’s where you’ll find a mix of bison and chorizo hash, which delivers a spicy and slightly gamey flavor.
Why It Helps: This dish will turn your “Oof!” into an instant “Olé!” And who doesn’t love a dish that allows you to eat with your hands? Simply grab one of the oversized tortilla chips and dig deep into this marvelous mess of morning-after relief.
