New Orleans knows how to deal with a hangover, and not just with more booze.

In addition to the go-to of perfectly greasy, egg-and-bacon-dripping breakfast sandwiches, here in New Orleans soups weigh in heavily on the map with pho, menudo, and yaka mein (aka Old Sober). The map is also full of non-breakfast items, because sometimes by the time you can seek a remedy, breakfast is no longer an option.

Here, without further delay, are the best hangover dishes in New Orleans, just in time for the start of Carnival season.

Luckily this tiny Broadmoor Mexican spot serves its breakfast items all day. With an excellent version of the traditional huevos, this place will leave you feeling happy, and not just from the food. The people are great and the seasonal margaritas are better. It has a killer chilaquiles too.

How does a “delicious bowl of hash browns, bacon, fried eggs, cheese, and honestly, I don’t remember what else” sound for your hangover? Some believe it “must be accompanied by a fountain poured diet coke with extra ice” to truly resurrect the dead.
