*Bookmarks for Sunday morning*

Posted on

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to show us what a traditional hangover cure looks like in their country. Here are the results…

1. Canada

"In Canada it's poutine! Some diners even offer some variation on the hangover breakfast which is just a regular eggs and bacon breakfast, but with poutine instead of home fries. The grease works wonders."— Heather Landry, Facebook

2. South Korea

"Haejang-guk! It literally means 'soup for hangover cure' and there's a lot of variations, but generally it's a soup with various vegetables/meat in a thick beef broth. Nothing better than a hot bowl with rice after a wild night out."— blujay1271

4. Mexico

"In Mexico, after a heavy night of drinking and a morning of suffering, we eat Menudo. It’s a strong smelling and tasting soup made out of beef stomach and then topped with dried oregano and chili flakes."— natlozada

5. Greece

"In Greece, it's usually paracetamol and some coffee...If you are super drunk though, you eat (please don't barf) a dish called patsas. It's a stew that has pork legs...I refuse to eat it but everyone says it helps calm your upset stomach."— xralfiepx

7. Bulgaria

"I grew up in Bulgaria, where after every crazy NYE's night out, my family would get together and cook the only hangover cure we believe in: pork belly soup. It consists of pork belly (duh), vinegar, lots of garlic, red hot pepper flakes, sunflower oil, and milk. I know it sounds disgusting, but it's actually so delicious and it WORKS! Hear me out: the fat from the pork belly and the sunflower oil makes your tummy feel better."— nonabankova

9. Latvia

"I'm from Latvia and we have many different hangover cures but the one that I have used the most, because it works the best, is eating an egg. No matter what kind…boiled, scrambled, in an omelette, or even raw. It works like a charm every time."— cathyh40b1f041f
