Cure Your Hangover at Pointe Orlando
Pointe Orlando may seem like the party-central perpetrator of a hangover, but it can also be just what you need to cure it. It’s no mystery why January 1st is National Hangover Day.
If you, like many others around the globe, are now trying to recuperate from a healthy amount of partying, read on to find out how Pointe can provide the foods to cure your hangover.
Now, contrary to popular belief, hangovers aren’t necessarily caused by overdrinking. Any consumption of alcohol leads to dehydration, whose effects are often what cause most hangover symptoms.
But, just one glass of water isn’t going to cut it. While there’s no magic formula to getting rid of a hangover, some foods and drinks can help relieve your symptoms.
The consumption of alcohol reduces blood sugar overnight, which, if sustained for an extended period of time, can lead to headaches the next day. So, if you’re looking for an excuse to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is it!
In particular, bananas can be your supply of the loss of electrolytes you suffered the previous night. The Hampton Social’s Banana Cream Pie: a slice of heaven on a toasted waffle with bananas, chocolate shavings, and whipped cream may be just what the doctor ordered.
Let’s be honest, we don’t need to be told twice. Any day is a fantastic day to spend at The Hampton Social.
But, for something less sweet, Capital Grille has just the thing. Try their Burrata with Heirloom Tomatoes appetizer.
Tomatoes provide protection for your liver, so indulging in them is a good idea. And yes, before you do a double take on the subtitle, tomatoes are fruits. Moving on!
Fish and Vegetables
Are you a fan of greens? Doesn’t matter, because however you think you feel about vegetables will forever change when you visit Taverna Opa. Their amazing salmon (also good for decreasing inflammation), cooked in white wine, dill, and garlic, paired with wild, leafy greens and spinach rice is a cure for almost anything.
These vegetables contain multiple vitamins, fibers, and minerals that make them good foods for a hangover. Although this may seem like a very healthy option, which it is, don’t let it deceive you! When it comes to Taverna Opa, you’ll be craving every dish, no matter how healthy it may be.
And, if you’re in the mood for something a little lighter, go for the Avgolemono Traditional Greek Soup, made with chicken, lemon, and rice. Forget boring chicken noodle soup, this greek soup is perfect for an upset stomach and is an exciting option all around!
Bring on the Meats
Your body breaks protein into amino acids, which you’re in need of after you drink alcohol. So, high-protein foods are a great way to battle your hangover. In this case, Rodizio Grill is the way to go!
“Grill” is literally in their name, so you best believe they have everything you need for a high-protein meal. They offer over a dozen rotisserie-grilled meats. Our favorite is their signature cut of Picanha, a top sirloin specially trimmed and prepared until perfection is achieved.
Most of Cuba Libre’s Latin paradise dishes are served with protein as the star of the plate. Not only will the Vaca Frita (aka “Fried Cow”) take you on a vacation to the Caribbean, it’ll also help you obtain the rejuvenation you seek!
The Vaca Frita is a Cuban classic: braised and shredded beef, finished off with roasted onion and garlic sauce. Paired with the sides of your choice, this is a pick you won’t want to miss.
With so many options to choose from, you should probably pencil us in your calendar to come back and try them all!
If you’re still wondering what to eat when hungover, then the last stop in our guide is comfort food; It may not be too good for you, but it does wonders for your spirit!
After a night of drinking, is there anything else you crave? Greasy foods will always be the king over all other hangover cures, and how they make you feel isn’t something you can argue with.
For the crème de la crème of comfort foods at The Pointe, we invite you to visit Main Event, for an experience of fun dining, because you can have so much fun, before, during, and after you dine!
With a newly revitalized menu, Main Event has every guilty pleasure you can think of, from nachos to pizza to burgers. To end your meal, top it off with a mind-blowing milkshake.
The Pub also has an array of choices that will instantly put a smile on your face. The most obvious choice, understandably so, is their award-winning fish and chips. Their beer-battered haddock is joined by house-made tartar sauce and creamy coleslaw.
Their fish and chips are a staple of The Pub and it’s only one of the reasons why they’re worthy to be put on your must-visit list.
