On the surface, a US-style diner opening up in Dalston might sound like an awful concept dreamed up by someone with a trust fund and nobody who will tell them the truth. But Hash E8 is actually one of our favourite spots in the area for brunch because they make very tasty food that also happens to be Perfect For smashing after a heavy night of drinking. True to the diner theme, you’ll find filter coffee and classics like French toast, pancakes, and a chorizo and sweet potato hash that will cure what ails you. And not an avocado in sight. That’s a concept we can get behind.
