Independent Bar & Kitchen's Proper English Breakfast Is Your Ideal Hangover Cure

Chef Andrew Dilda's decidedly refined take on a British classic

It's the most important meal of the day, which means that every culture has their own unique approach to breakfast. The French are happy with a croissant and espresso for breakfast, while Americans often skip the meal or grab whatever they can eat very quickly on their way to work.

But for the english, breakfast is a proper feast that leaves little room for lunch or dinner. It’s perfect for brunch, especially if you are recovering from a hangover. At the Independent Bar & Kitchen in Deep Ellum, Chef Andrew Dilda is serving up an updated take on the classic English fry-up.

"An English breakfast is just a piling of food on a plate," Dilda says. "But I wanted to do something nice and neat, a bit more refined. We can’t do it too terribly strict anyway because there are so many variations and we would end up disappointing someone."
