In honor of Cocktail Week 2013's Hangover Power Hour, we're updating our map on where to eat when you're hungover. Whether you want to linger over a steaming bowl of pho or just grab something quick and greasy to stuff your face with before slipping back into a couch coma, here are 11 solid options for what to eat the morning after.

There's a lot of places to eat pho, but what makes DaLat ideal for hangover meals is that 1) you'll probably be in good company with other hungover or drunk people, and 2) they have a ton of booze, in case you also need a little of the old hair of the dog.

Good 2 Go Taco

Copy Link
Breakfast tacos are always a good choice for hangover meals, and Good 2 Go takes their tortilla-wrapped meals over the top with ingredients like waffle-battered chicken or crumbled biscuits with gravy.

Hypnotic Donuts

Copy Link
The doughnuts here are great, but if you're suffering from a hangover you're gonna want a chicken biscuit -- carby, fried, and fatty, it's the cure for what ails you. Try the Kaye with cream cheese and spicy head-clearing jalapenos.

El Taquito

Copy Link
El Taquito has the best chilaquiles in town, and the crispy, cheesy mess of tortilla strips and over-easy fried eggs is the perfect meal for the morning after, topped with plenty of hot sauce. (Protip: Don't forget to bring cash money.)

Jonathon's

Copy Link
Pretty much everything on the menu at Jonathon's is ideal hangover fare (and likely to put you in a welcome food coma), but we'd like to give a special shoutout to the outstanding fried chicken and waffles, which comes smothered in amazing peppered gravy -- all the better to coat your stomach with.

Keller's Drive-In

Copy Link
A slightly greasy burger, an order of tater tots, and a big thick milkshake to coat your queasy stomach. It's dirt cheap and you don't even have to get out of your car: perfect.

La Victoria

Copy Link
Breakfast burritos with anything and everything you want in 'em, grilled to order. We suggest scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, ham, and spinach to replenish some of those nutrients.

Margarita's Restaurant

One word: menudo. This East Dallas spot opens at 8 a.m. in case you want to get a jump start on knocking out that hangover; and if you can't stomach tripe, there's also some pretty killer chilaquiles. [Photo: George F./Foursquare]

Melios Bros. Char Bar

Copy Link
This low-key Lower Greenville institution is an excellent place to load up on pancakes and black coffee. It's usually pretty quiet, which is ideal for not making that pounding headache any worse.

Off Site Kitchen

Copy Link
OSK is the perfect hangover destination -- they have massive drinks for that all-important task of rehydrating, over-the-top meaty sandwiches, and no one gives a damn how you're dressed. Try the coma-inducing 48-hour brisket sandwich with a side of fries (and maybe a PBR if you need a little hair of the dog).

Tortas La Hechizera

Copy Link
A torta might just be the ultimate hangover food. Beans, cheese, avocado, jalapenos, crema, a ton of greasy meat from milanesa to ham -- it's a meal that will likely lull you into a long hangover nap.

DaLat
