To quote two very different Waygook posters.

What is your go-to meal after/during a period of imbibing?

(Those dry need not apply)
Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

The next day:

Without a doubt, full on English Breakfast. For me it's steak, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, bacon, chips or bubble and squeek, toast, and lashings of butter. If I could, I'd add Black Pudding'. This would be followed through the day with any other shit food that takes my fancy, including sandwiches, lots of ice cream, cake, chocolate. Maybe even a burger or 3 thrown in.

While drinking:
Peanuts

When finished drinking:
Chicken
Battered hot dogs and chips or meat patties and chips
Meat pie and fresh bread
Maybe even a roast dinner, if I cooked it beforehand.
Left-over samgyeopsal (often in a sandwich)

This is one reason why I rarely indulge anymore. It's not the drinking that's a problem...it's the aftermath!

Edit: I don't eat all the 'finished drinking' food, just one or two of the above. But I probably could  :-[

2 tylenol, a pot of ice coffee ( i make ice with the previous days leftover coffee so it doesnt get diluted) spicy italian sub from subway loaded with pickles. If that still doesnt make ya feel better, a 473ml bottle of pocari sweat works wonders.


During imbibing-
Back in the days of 10-15,000 won fruit plates, it was always those. Nutrients, vitamins, hydration.
Otherwise, pickles are good. Fresh or pickled tomatoes. Tapas. Russians and Euros have a good idea of what to eat while drinking- be refreshed, not downing fried crap. That mackerel you get at Korean places is good too. "Why do I feel like shit the next day?" asks person who shoveled crap into their mouth while drinking.

Always a wrong bet- Taco Bell, Fried Chicken, Chili Cheese Fries, White Castle, Lamb kebabs (love em but they exacerbate gut rot), any Korean spicy soup, dwaeji galbi, samgyeopsal (but weirdly not moksal or jokbal, must be the extra grease),

3.6 Roentgen (not great, not terrible/Really hit or miss)- Pizza, American Chinese, Fish and Chips, Bangers & Mash (can either be really great or really dodgy), raw fish (see B&M), Jimmy John's, mozzarella stix, soondae, ddeokbokki.

Next day? Assuming that drinking went well, something refreshing. Eat good, refreshing food and you can beat the next "blahs". Something like soba or a nice sandwich or a poke bowl.

If you've hit the blarghs, then cold pizza is always solid. Mac & cheese is a classic.

Full breakfast is always best enjoyed when you know you're winding down but you aren't wasted and you know you won't be gutrotted the next day. If eaten while wasted or while gutrotted, those eggs can cause things to go south pretty fast. It is great after a night of mild drinking where you know it's just going to be a relaxing day of watching football or something.


Once I have a few beers, any semblance of an appetite goes right out the window. I NEVER ever crave food when I'm drinking. Zero.

I always make sure I have a meal before I go out so I don't f myself over by drinking on an empty stomach.


This can actually become a point of contention with my friends and I cuz I want to go to places with a good beer selection and they'll want "a meal" and more often than not those two ideas are not the same and don't have much crossover.

Mcdonalds breakfast is my go to. Never really interested in their burgers but a sausage and egg mcmuffin with a greasy hashbrown in the morning will always be welcomed after a night of drinking.

Grabbed some mcDs drive thru this morning.  (Or as the Koreans call it.  Make Morning.)
Trolls on here are lame and need to get a life.


Taco Bell.

If my toilet could talk it would call me quite the destructive force the next morning.


While drinking:

Nachos, fries, onion rings, and water. If I'm having a dark beer and really want to treat myself, I'll order a chocolate dessert. That's gotta be the last thing I consume, though.

After drinking:

Gatorade and ibuprofen. Pocari Sweat if I can't find Gatorade.

While drinking: Nachos, fries, onion rings,...
Oily or fatty calorie-dense primeval food is understandable. And I like onion rings. It's the ONLY thing i can stomach from Burger King (bought all my students them when the store opened down the street). But the CRUNCH of a fresh onion matches or surpasses any fried food. I actually chow down on a whole peeled onion after a night out. I know it's healthy but better yet, I enjoy the crunch. I am not into sweet much, and so apples ain't my late night go to. I love the late night crunch of fresh onion, of nachos, of cauliflower dipped in hot sauce, of bell pepper scooping up beans. Yum.

In 2013 I was teaching a high-level middle school academy class in Debate (our team from Seogwipo beat the mighty bigger Jeju City and we went to the national finals), and "Julie" (we also had a "Julia", i only once mixed them up and got the wrath) ARGUED that my daily Gatorade was unhealthy. I admitted her reasons and conceded. I told her she was right and i promised to never again drink Gatorade again, and haven't. side note: this is the student that motivated me to buy the "Julie blanket", which i still utilize today, to cover the legs of the only person with shorts or a skirt to complain about the full-blast a/c in my class. (My rule being: the 2nd bare-legged complaint shuts it off, as does the first pant-clothed student. Yesterday the outside temp was 32 C, i cranked the a/c to 18, so the room was probably about 22 given the windows, and no one spoke up: for about 4-5 classes a week in the summer i shut it off. I sweat at 24 c. Of course I was born in Vancouver and spent my early years on Vancouver Island (VanIslander), so 26 C we considered a "very" hot, rare, summer day.

I'm pretty big on the McDonalds breakfast. While drinking (rare occasion nowadays, I've cut down a lot) I usually just grab whatever, but I have recently been rediscovering the joys of a simple cracker platter (I really do need to get around to ordering something off the salt house sometime)


I get pretty big on McDonald's breakfast too if you know what I mean  8)


That was your take from it? I meant I gain a lot of weight
