Hangover Helper: Breakfast Poutine at Chez Ben in Manchester, CT

Starchy, sloppy, and utterly satisfying, poutine is classic Québécois drunk food so it makes perfect sense to indulge in the stuff the morning after when you're suffering from the dreaded gueule de bois. Chez Ben, an unassuming little diner in Manchester, Connecticut specializes in French Canadian fare including this hangover slaying Breakfast Poutine ($6.50/$8.50). It's a heaping pile of home fries, scrambled eggs, cheese curds, brown gravy, and your choice of bacon, ham, or sausage served with buttery wedges of toast. Depending on your feelings about A.M. pâté you can upgrade your plate with a side of Creton (a "cold Canadian meat spread" according to the menu) for an extra $2.15. More
