How to say you’re hungover: Estoy crudo, translates to “I’m feeling raw.”
The cure: Mexican shrimp and shellfish salad. Or, if you want to go a little more anecdotal, try menudo -- a thick traditional soup made with tripe (yum, beef stomach), lime, onion, cilantro, and chili peppers.
If you go the salad route, “a combination of fresh seafood, onions, chiles, and lime juice makes this a refreshing hangover cure,” says Harju. The clutch ingredient is the lime, which is easy on an upset stomach and leaves you feeling full and refreshed. That’s all well and good, but “Menudo beats the crudo” rhymes and thus is far more valuable advice than any dietitian could dispense.
