1. Currywurst in Berlin, Germany


The currywurst will cure the worst that could befall you after a night slanging steins at the beer hall. It's simple: a delicious German pork sausage, sprinkled with curry, doused with ketchup, and served with a generous portion of French fries. Dig in.

2. Ulster Fry with Farls in Dublin, Ireland


Ireland has been refining the hangover cure for hundreds of years. The ulster fry with farls is a full Irish breakfast: bacon, blood pudding, tomatoes, eggs, and farls. These dense bread pancakes are fried, crisp, golden, and wonderful. Fried bread forever.

3. Poutine in Québec, Canada

Thick and crispy fries, molten cheese curds, and savory brown gravy make this Canadian heap your salubrious salvation after pounding a few pints. Salivation? Yeah, there's going to be some of that too.

4. Curry in London, England


It has been said that Brick Lane in London has the best Indian food on planet earth, better even than India itself. It's definitely good for sweating out the toxins after a night on the town.

5. Dosa in Bangalore, India

But never fear, India. You have the delicious masala dosa, a crispy pastry filled with chicken or vegetable masala that can grow to over a foot long. Bonus: the amazing spicy side sauce. It's almost more than one person can handle. Almost.

Rou jia mo is essentially a Chinese hamburger. It's made of minced pork, beef, or chicken, seasoned with mild peppers, then stuffed between a piping hot flatbread called "mo." A couple of these will soak up anything that ails you.

7. Lángos in Budapest, Hungary


Lángos comes from the Hungarian word for "flame." This fried bread topped with sour cream, cheese, crispy ham, garlic, and spices will set your mouth aflame with joy. Eat one of these before bed and you might actually never be hungover again.

8. Queijo Coalho in Brasília, Brazil

Queijo coalho is a firm but mild Brazilian cheese that's roasted on a stick over a coal fire, then dusted with garlic oil, oregano, and molasses. It's a beach food in Brazil, so it's the perfect morning after snack to enjoy while relaxing with your sunglasses on.

9. Falafel in Tel Aviv, Israel

Falafel is a deep-fried ball of ground chickpeas. The fritter is revered for its zest, its crunch, and because it's good on/in/around all other foods. It's pictured here with fried eggplant and pickled cabbage, a delicious mixture of salt, sour, and brine.

10. Bunny Chow in Durban, South Africa

Bunny Chow is a minced meat stew made with lamb, chicken, or beef that's served in a crusty bread bowl. The stew is sloppy, rich, and flavorful. Eating the bowl once it's swollen with all the savory stew juices will put you back where you belong: in bed.
