Is it just me or was it on the chilly side this morning? Okay, so we’re not dealing with the arctic temperatures of the northeast, but Austinites aren’t built for 30 or even 40 degree days.

Stay warm this winter with some of Austin’s best, soothe-your-soul meals. And with the help of Favor, you don’t even need to step outside of your central heating.

We’ve been doing our Favor series for a few months now and it’s been a hit. It’s included the most favored burgers, healthy food options, and so forth. But, it’s time we address why we truly love Favor. Favor is a hungover person’s dream. A “I woke up like this” (with a headache and cannot move) person’s dream.

You’re telling me I can order anything I want without having to move an inch? And it’s going to be delivered to my door quicker than me starting my car and picked it up myself? If I’m nursing a hangover, the goal is to achieve as little movement as possible for the day so, I’m sold.

Since it’s holiday season and national hangover day is right around the corner (New Years Day), we’ve put a list together of some of our favorite Austin hangover cravings that Favor will delivery right to your door. Favor operates during normal hours (8am-3am) on the first day of the year and they’re available to deliver Austin’s finest hangover cures.

1) French Toast from Austin Java 

If you’re one of those people that eats ice cream after a big night out (me), then Austin Java’s french toast will hit the spot your sweet tooth has been craving.

2) Huevos Rancheros from Juan in a Million
Juan in a million don juan

Two eggs any style with the best ranchero sauce you’ve ever had. Refried beans and potatoes, all smothered on flour tortillas, served and delivered warm for you to devour. Try the huevos rancheros from Juan in a Million or the Don Juan (pictured).

3) Tamales from Tamale House

Mmm steamy, moist tamales. We recommend the bean and cheese tamale to kick your new year’s hangover in the butt!

4) Migas tacos from Veracruz

Need we say anymore than breakfast tacos? These are a hangover necessity and if you’ve yet to try breakfast tacos from Veracruz, then you’ll thank us later for this one.

5) Steak and Egg Sandwich from Paperboy

Wagyu steak, sunny side up egg, brioche, and chimichurri mayo. Give me all of the carbs and protein, please.

6) Brunch Burger from Porter

You can’t go wrong with a breakfast burger and Porter’s is no exception. White cheddar and a fried egg, topped on a toasted english muffin. Bonus points: this burger has bacon jam! *loveheart eyes*

7) Grande Grilled Breakfast Burrito from Cenote

At some point in the day, my hangover craves breakfast tacos or a breakfast burrito. If you crave the latter, this one has your name on it. Your choice of bacon or chorizo, potatoes, cheese, all on an organic flour tortilla. Wash that down with a refreshing iced chai, and you’ll be feeling back up to snuff in no time. *note: for vegetarians, you can substitute the bacon/chorizo for avocado.

8) Breakfast Frito Pie from Lambert’s [image by Wes Rowe]

If Frito pie wasn’t already good enough, Lambert’s tops there’s off with a poached egg AND queso. I’ll never say “no” to Frito pie, let alone Frito pie with queso. This is the epitome of hangover heaven.
