Hangover Foods?

Not necessarily the therapeutic kind, but just foods you eat to make you "feel" better when one too many games of quarters were played the night before ...

Here's my list:

1. Big Mac
2. PB&J
3. Wasabi and grated ginger in congee

      Totally, with the small cubes of ice, or shaved even. Heaven.

        My mother swears by Coke too. I prefer a sparkling water. I think it's the bubbles that do the trick either way.

        1. re: NovoCuisine

          sparkling water is my #1 cure. works every time (almost...there are some hangovers that just cant be cured!)

        2. re: akp

          Coke syrup is even better. Once my boyfriend went to the nearby pizza parlor and convinced them to sell him a cup of coke syrup. It worked like magic!

        3. Menudo
          Turkey congee
          Slightly charred toast with plenty of butter
          Meaty stews

          1. Mac & cheese
            baked potato
            french fries

            Sensing a very starchy theme here?

            When things are really bad:
            saltines, applesauce, and ginger ale

            1. Spicy soupy stuff - yuk kae jang, pho, bloody mary's......

              1. Ordinarily I crave a greasy, salty and meaty breakfast, like a traditional two-egger with sausage, hash browns, and toast with lots of butter. Later in the day I usually want pasta carbonara - that is, pasta with bacon and eggs!

                  That does it for me -- egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel, usually -- with some butter on the bagel.
