Hangover Helper: The Fried Egg Sandwich from 25 Degrees in Hollywood

Hangover Helper Farley Elliott 5 comments

When you're nursing a hangover, it helps to have somewhere dark to hide. Someplace with big, cushiony red booths and crushed velvet walls. The sort of long, welcoming room that you can walk into at 4 p.m. or 4 a.m. and get the same big, buttery, greasy hangover food. Hollywood has such a place. It's called 25 Degrees. More

Hangover Helper: Duck Burrito at Koi Palace, Daly City, CA

Hangover Helper Maggie Hoffman 4 comments

Though 'burrito' isn't really the keyword you're usually looking for on a dim sum menu, this particular item, the Shredded Duck Burrito ($6.90) is a must-order at Koi Palace. It's essentially a set of two flaky, just slightly-greasy, tender scallion pancakes, rolled around moist, rich slices of duck and spears of cucumber. More

Hangover Helper: Steak and Eggs at No. 308 in Nashville, Tennessee

Hangover Helper W.S. Lyon 2 comments

Heading back to the bar on Sunday afternoon might not be your first, most obvious choice for a cure. Unless of course that bar is Nashville's No. 308. With its spacey vibe and its stoner-food plates piled high, the brunch here is designed with heavy-hitters at heart. More

Hangover Helper: The Fisherman's Breakfast at the Fresh Fish Market, Tauranga, New Zealand

Hangover Helper Lauren Sloss 15 comments

This plate of food is big enough to share, and I highly recommend you do (remember: you're hungover, that doesn't mean you have to be totally stupid). $10.50 gets you two meaty, flaky hunks of fried snapper, a pile of french fries, a scoop of coleslaw, and two orange-yolked, perfectly runny fried eggs on top. Tauranga is a seaside town, and a major port for boat traffic in New Zealand. So, this snapper is fresh, easily flaking apart with the touch of a fork. More

Hungover in Orlando? K Restaurant's Got You Covered

Hangover Helper J. Kenji López-Alt 3 comments

This is one of those hangover helpers that was so effective at stuffing my aching body with tasty, buttery fat that I actually needed a hangover helper helper to take the edge off as I started to come down off my pork-and-egg-fueled high. More

Hangover Helper: The Sausage Breakfast Taco at Bar Amá in Los Angeles

Hangover Helper Farley Elliott 2 comments

There's a lot to love about the sausage breakfast taco ($6), that's for sure. This thing is curvy, a half moon of thick hand-patted tortilla, blistered and spotty in all the right places. Instead of trying to button itself up inside the weighty tortilla, this chunky concoction spills hefty yellow nuggets of softly scrambled egg all over the place. You can't stop the breakfast taco; you can't even contain it. More

Hangover Helper: Turkish Eggs and Eggplant at Grill 43 in Sunnyside, Queens

Hangover Helper Max Falkowitz 3 comments

The Turks know what breakfast is all about, food that's nourishing and comforting but all about getting your day started right. So these days I haul myself on the 7 train to Sunnyside, Queens, home to Grill 43. More

Hangover Helper: Spoonbread-Stuffed Chile Relleno and Brisket Nachos at Trigger in Portland, OR

Hangover Helper Adam Lindsley 2 comments

For a slow day at the office made even slower as a result of hitting the sauce a little fervently the night before (hey, no one's judging anyone here), a hearty bite of Tex-Mex is just what the doctor ordered. And it's what you'll order, too, if you find yourself in a similar predicament and manage to make your way to the doors of Trigger, the newest place in Portland to procure that soul-pleasing marriage of Texas and Mexican comfort food. More

Hangover Helper: Astrolabe's Breakfast of Champions, Tauranga, New Zealand

Hangover Helper Lauren Sloss 2 comments

I appreciate hangover cures that get right to the quick-and-dirty point. Hair of the dog. Bacon. Done. The nature of New Zealand bacon, which includes the loin in addition to the belly, makes this a worthy sandwich filling. More

Hungover in Austin? Go To Torchy's Tacos

Hangover Helper J. Kenji López-Alt 10 comments

There's nothing on the menu at the several branches of Torchy's that wouldn't send a hangover back to the depths from whence it came, but might I make a few suggestions? We've already told you about The Dirty Sanchez, with its fried poblano, scrambled eggs, and guacamole, but the Independent is another strong contender for best-in-show: a slab of deep-fried breaded portobello mushroom perched not-so-daintily on a pile of fresh corn kernels, piled with pickled carrots, avocado, queso fresco, and a squirt of ancho chili aioli. Did I say "perched not-so-daintily"? What I meant was "slammed raunchily". More

Hangover Helper: Puffy Tacos at Bar Amá in Los Angeles

Hangover Helper Farley Elliott 4 comments

When you've got a mezcal hangover and the harsh morning light is streaming through the plate glass windows, look to Chef Josef Centeno's puffy tacos at Bar Amá. Depending on the level of your hangover, actually navigating the oversized taco might be a bit of a challenge, but if you can manage to find the middle of your face, just poke around until you find an open mouth and you should be all set. More

Hangover Helper: The Hangover at Meander's Kitchen in White Center, WA

Hangover Helper Jay Friedman 1 comment

The Hangover ($9.50) is just what the carb doctor ordered: "a double order of crispy browns topped with homemade sausage gravy." Additional protein comes from two eggs, which I ordered over easy so that the yolks could run down the potatoes. More

Hangover Helper: The Pasta Papa from Hugo's in West Hollywood

Hangover Helper Farley Elliott 1 comment

It's entirely possible that you've never considered pasta for breakfast. You've probably been thinking that the most important meal begins at cereal and ends at pancakes. That sounds like a nice life. Quaint even. Except that it's completely wrong. More
