It's Sunday morning, the sun shining through your bedroom window might as well be Mike Tyson punching you in the face. Everything is blurry and the slightest noise hurts your soul. But you have to get moving, so what can you do? It's time to shove some magical goodness into your face hole and stop the insanity! Here's a list of some of the best foods that "work" on that hangover of yours.
10. Oyster Shooter
I know what You're thinking; "NO MORE SHOTS!". Well, calm down and breath because this is a little different. A raw oyster, lemon juice, horse radish, and cocktail sauce is the perfect thing to get you feeling like yourself again. We know it looks like something one of your a**hole friends would dare you to drink, but give it a chance and you'll say thank you.
Try a variation with beer in it! The added booze can help that hangover too!
Mmmm, Pho'. Pronounced "Fuh", this is the magical concoction that when you discover it, you'll never turn back. Pho' is a Vietnamese Noodle Soup that is the perfect soup for... anytime, it even comes in chicken, and is the best chicken soup you will ever have. Be careful though, on top of it easily becoming an addiction, it's delivered to you in a bathtub-sized bowl! So be ready to have leftovers.
Quick pro tip, take the noodles out and just reheat the broth to a boil, then put the cold noodles back in. No more soggy mealy noodles for leftovers!
Mexican, Tex Mex, American, or even Taco Bell (whatever that is), tacos can be the best and quickest food to fix your mistakes from last night. Hit up a taqueria or a food cart and grab 1 or 5 of these hand held, meat filled medicinal miracles for that moody morning.
A little tip; if you are at a taco shack and see a meat you've never heard of...Try It! It could be your new favorite and give you a quick bit of adventure.
When is it a bad time to eat pizza? In the words of Ninja Turtle, Michelangelo, "Never, Dude!". There are so many styles of pizza and no matter what your preference is, the Holy Trinity of cheese, sauce, and dough will surely save your soul (Or at least help soak up some of that tequila). Be careful, though, pizza is one of those foods where there is no way to order or make a little bit. Also, your going to try and finish it.
Eh, screw it! Pizza's a vegetable now, so EAT UP!
It's pretty hard to screw up frying something. Hell...fry up an old boot and we'll probably try it. But, there's nothing that beats a fried potato, and for a person with a hangover, French Fries is like is like finding the lost city of gold...except you can eat it!
Go for the standards like; dipped in ketchup, chili and cheese, and seasoned. Or, try something new like the Canadian favorite, poutine, which is covered in fresh mozzarella and gravy. Oh, thaaaaaaat's why they have free healthcare.
5. Biscuits and Gravy & Chicken Fried Steak
We put these two bad boys together because of two words...sausage gravy. Let's be serious, no one cares what's under that stuff, and the proof is that most diners and dives let you order a side of JUST THE GRAVY! Take that Michelle Obama, lets hear what you want to try and substitute for this! S'mores made out of low-fat yogurt and strawberries? SMH. Childhood ruined...
4. Hot Sandwich
Philly Cheesesteak, Reuben, Meatball Sub, Grilled Cheese, French Dip and more. Now grab a towel and clean yourself up, because the hot sandwich is our number four pick! Who doesn't love a good sandwich? We said good sandwich, not any of that gluten free bread that's just compressed sand and NO KALE! Guess we just answered our own question, hippies don't like good sandwiches.
3. Breakfast Burrito
Well wrap us in a blanket and call us Carls Jr. Or better yet, wrap breakfast in a tortilla and call it the best thing ever! Ah the great american breakfast burrito. Did we just say "American Burrito"? Nothing says "fix my pain" like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes and cheese wrapped in a giant tortilla. It's the best thing to eat on your way to that "super important mandatory morning meeting about teamwork". WARNING! No trust falls while this is in your stomach!
Like OMG... put that meat between those buns! Cover it in creamy special sauce! Yasss, now put a ring on it! Make that 3 onion rings. What? What were you thinking? Dirty... dirty mind.
If you haven't had a burger to cure a hangover, you don't drink. If you don't drink, you've never been hungover. If you've never been hungover...
WHY ARE YOU READING THIS!
1. More Alcohol
There might be science behind this and there might not be, but who the Hell cares...it works! Bloody Mary to the face! Mimosa to the dome! Tequila Sunrise en la boca! Hair of the dog is the tried and true method and will not only get you feeling better, but in the case of not having anything important to do, it can just start off one of the nicest things we can think of....
...and regrets... but so totally worth it.
