10 Great Hangover Meals in Orange County
Hangovers are chaotic. For one, your head feels like it's been strangled. Your stomach is turned inside out. You're still in last night's clothes, which are imprinted by signs of too much fun (vomit). Waking up, you realize there are people you have to apologize to and things you regret. But, alas, it's time to recover--and because we don't want you to do too much thinking while in headache-mode, we created this list of hangover cures for you.
10. Hangover Burger at Plum's Cafe (Costa Mesa)
Not the hangover burger (still good though)
OC Weekly Archives
Hangover burger, meet reader. Reader, meet hangover burger. When Plum's isn't serving their alderwood-smoked salmon hash (and other pretty dishes), they're curing the intoxicated--specifically with this breakfast-plate-in-a-burger invention. With sirloin meat, fried egg, and pepper bacon, this burger is the perfect remedy for passionate carnivores.

9. Benedict Omelette from Egg Cracker (Fullerton)

Omelets heal the inebriated. I mean, just look at that picture. Now, read Anne Marie's description of it:
Our trio ordered a sharable selection of hits, yet it was an omelette that stole the show. This wasn't your run-of-the-mill, English muffin entree. Stuffed with both Canadian and Applewood bacon, it was off to a carnivorous start. Monterey Jack joined the party, followed by a drizzle of hollandaise and chives. We didn't miss the poached part, as our eggs blended together all the flavors like a well-crafted burrito.

8. Irish Nachos at Bruxie (Multiple Locations)
Starchy carbs are every man/woman's hangover friend, so you'll need to surround yourself with a squad of potatoes (which--trust me--will look sexier than Taylor Swift's model friends when you're hammered). One of the best ways to maximize your potato intake is via the waffle fry. A great option is Irish Nachos at Bruxie: waffle fries with cheese, sour cream, bacon, and chives.
