Seattle's Best: Hangover Cures! ...the Best Local Meals to Cure your Hangover

We have compiled a list of restaurants who carry only the premier hangover curable foods – meat, sweet and large portions.

We've all been out and imbibed on some tasty adult beverages.  Some nights are, well… crazier than others. For anyone who might have said the words  “I am just going to take it chill and have one drink”, you know you are in for a real treat.  One drink turns into another, you take some shots, sing karaoke and before you know it, you are falling into your bed around 3am (seriously, start inviting me to these outings!).    

That night is often followed up with one of the suckiest mornings, the dreaded hangover (I am hearing there is such a thing as a “2 day hangover” – but I hope this is a secret club I am NEVER part of).  For most of us in our 20’s and 30’s, it’s a headache, cottonmouth, sleepiness and 400 unanswered text messages from the night before.

Heed our advice; read this list, grab some water (with Emergen-C?) and race over to these restaurants to refuel and regenerate.
