So happy hour turned into many hours? All you know now is that noon is rolling around and if you don't find something to kick this hangover's ass the rest of your day is shot. It's times like these that call for a Mongolian Cheesesteak ($5.00) from HRD Coffee Shop in SOMA.

This longstanding hole-in-wall has revamped itself with a cheery orange awning and an extended menu of greasy, delicious fusion fare, and the cheesesteak is their crowning achievement. Hoisin-spiced meat is loaded into a split white roll, laden with green peppers and onions, and topped with melty, shredded mozzarella. It's greasy, messy, and just the right level of spicy; it will bomb your hangover into submission. In fact, best you put a hangover in it's way, lest it go after your internal organs instead.
