NYC's Best Hangover Food?

il Trifulau Aug 9, 2009 06:14 AM

I like a breakfast burrito with lots of water and coffee. Out Of The Kitchen on Hudson and Leroy makes a good one, but I'd like to know where others are.

How do you handle Sunday morning coming down?

    My fave bfast burrito is at 7A Cafe.

      I found out about 7A from CH. My fave is the lobster club - lobster salad, bacon, avocado on rye. How could you go wrong?
      Penelope's brunch.
      Dimsum brunch in Chinatown - soup dumplings at New Yeah or dimsum (searching for Ping's replacement)

        New Yeah has deteriorated since personnel changes took place a few months ago; I can no longer recommend it and have been going more to Shanghai Cafe, though I don't love any Shanghainese place I've tried in New York (none of them would survive in any part of Shanghai). Dim sum is a good idea, though, as long as the eater is content with a lot of tea, rather than coffee.

          Yes, Pan. I went to Mandarin Court today and drank lots of tea and ate lots of salty, tasty dim sum.
          Perfect for me after a night of overindulging.

      McDonalds - Sausage Biscuit with Egg
      Any Diner - Burger Deluxe with a Chocolate Shake

        The best hangover breakfast is Pho with a Vietnamese Iced coffee on the side. Healthy broth provides an easy vehicle for your body to absorb the nutrients your hungover body craves while rehydrating you at the same time. The ultra strong coffee wakes you up at the same time.

          it's strange, i always find myself craving pho (or soups, since they're salty) after a night of drinking.

          Sullong tang at Gahm Mee Oak in ktown would help too. Or hae jang gook, which is the Korean hangover soup.

            Noodle soups all do the trick but I also crave that coffee for my headache

              This is brilliant. I have never tried this for hangovers but it is delicious comfort food when you're sick, so it makes perfect sense.

          August has some of my favorite hangover cures...wood oven baked eggs en cocotte, my personal favorites are the alsatian - bacon and onion with creme fraiche bavarian and the andalusian -chorizo and blistered peppers. good stuff.

            I haven't had a hangover in quite some time. But if I did have one, a part of me would probably head out to Virgil's for their trainwreck fries. It's french fries covered with two types of melted cheese, bacon, jalapenos and ranch dressing. So salty, fatty, carby and rich. However, the more rational part of me would say to stick with something simple like sul long tang. Would be quite a dilemma.

                    To be honest, that doesn't look like something I'd that would be appetizing during a hangover.

                    Dumplings and a can of coke work really well for me.

                        Sopa de tripas at Tehuitzingo
                        Pho or a banh mi saigon
                        Haleem from Lahore
                        Shackburgers and cheese fries
                        Scotch eggs or pork pie at Myer's of Keswick
                        McDonald's hash browns
                        Dim sum at Red Egg... not even Brawny paper towels are as amazingly alcohol-absorbent as sesame pancakes.
                        Yesterday's answer to Sunday Funday was a little beef and pepper from Szechuan Gourmet with lots of rice mixed up with crab paste.

                          Depends. Either a hot bowl of Pho (I like Cong Ly on Hester, or Nam Son on Grand) or Steak & Eggs.

                            Pho from Cong Ly is usually the first thing I want when I'm hungover. But if I just can't face the subway ride there, a bowl of shio ramen from setagaya works well in a pinch.

                            I'd say pork belly buns and a volcano from Momofuku Milk Bar with some chocolate flavored milk, of course. You'll be either so stuffed or so nauseous you'll forget all about the silly hangover.

                              Corned beef hash and eggs and a glass of champagne at an upscale diner.

                                Champagne is good for a hangover?

                                  Hair-o-the-dog. I'm horrified to say that it does actually work. As long as you stick to a small amount and don't... say... have another whole dog. :-)

                                  It doesn't have to be champagne to work.

                                      There is a reason Bloody Marys are served on Sunday afternoons. I think they work better than champagne, because they have vitamins. This is what I tell myself.

                                        Hilarious. But you're right - tomato juice is packed with vitamin C.

                                I'm surprised no one mentioned Shopsin's! The first time I ate there I looked at my friend and said "I almost wish I were hungover, this is totally hungover food." We were having Blisters on my Sisters and Mac & Cheese Pancakes, of course.
