Best Brunch Spots in Denver: Menu Items to Help Your Hangover


November 15, 2017

It’s a story that happens all the time. You go out with friends or family to enjoy a night on the town, and end up drinking a little too much. You wake up the next day probably wishing you hadn’t partaken in so many libations, but you also wake up wanting to cure the sick feeling that’s prohibiting you from doing anything all day. While science out there backs up some of the best and worst foods to cure a hangover, at DJ’s Cafe we have large breakfast, brunch, and lunch menus that offer any food that you’d be craving, or wanting to eat so you can get up on your feet again. Here are just a few of what menu items we have that can help your hangover from the best brunch spot in Denver!

Eggs

Did you know? Eggs are one of the best foods you can eat to help your hangover because they’re full of amino acids that help boost liver function and prevent liver disease. They also have cysteine in them, which breaks down acetaldehyde (the chemical that causes headaches that’s left over when the liver breaks down ethanol).  At DJ’s Cafe, you can get two eggs served any style you want them, along with home fries, your choice of toast and meat. With this breakfast, you can reap the benefits of the eggs, and the carbs and protein of meat. It’s a win-win!

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is perfect when you wake up feeling less than great after a night out. Oats provide essential nutrients like vitamin B, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Additionally, a warm bowl of oatmeal neutralizes acids in your body and raises your blood sugar, so you’ll feel an instant boost of energy. DJ’s Cafe offers Irish style oatmeal (steel cut oats) with your choice of two toppings: dried cranberries, roasted pistachios, chopped dates, or brown sugar.

Soups

Most likely you probably won’t be waking up at the crack of dawn and ready to go out to get some breakfast, so by the time you actually do make it out it will be lunch time. In this case, soup is going to be your best friend! Chicken noodle soup isn’t the most obvious, go-to hangover food, but a bowl or cup of this soup helps replenish sodium and water levels in your body. The pieces of chicken will provide cysteine, helping give your liver a boost after a long night out. If chicken noodle soup isn’t your favorite, just go with a broth-based soup. Broth rehydrates and replenishes your sodium levels. At DJ’s Cafe, we always offer a soup of the day in cup or bowl form. If you want some green veggies, you can also get it with a side salad. Perfect for when your stomach can’t handle a big meal!

If you want to go with your gut, and order the food that your body is craving, go for it! Be sure to check out our top five menu items, which are always crowd pleasers.
