These Are The Go-To Hangover Foods In New Jersey And Pennsylvania
Waking up with a brutal hangover from an awesome night is not a good feeling. The first bite into that go-to hangover food is a very good feeling. Everyone has their own idea of what works for them. Whether it really works or not doesn’t matter. It’s the grease and placebo effect of filling your stomach that matters. The website VinePair.com did a survey of the country (but not all 50 states), and broke it into regions to find out what people’s go-to hangover foods are.
Let’s start locally in New Jersey where I have to agree with their choice of a delicious pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich. I go with everything bagel, but whichever you prefer works just fine. Some people in New Jersey call pork roll Taylor Ham which is ridiculous. These are the same people who root for the Giants, Jets, Devils, Mets, Yankees, etc. People with an identity crisis. Pork roll is the correct name.
They didn’t survey Pennsylvania, which seems like a mistake. Unless they did, and the majority of responses came from Pittsburgh. It’s best to omit people saying a Primanti Bros sandwich with fries and coleslaw on it. That’s probably the answer you would get in Western PA. Over here in Southeastern Pennsylvania, you could get a variety of answers, but in my opinion, the best hangover cure is a cheesesteak. Greasy. Cheesy (whiz). Carby thanks to a delicious roll. Get fries too, maybe some more cheese on the side. My mouth is watering while writing this. A sure cure for a nasty hangover, or at least it gives you a window of relief.
