Breakfast tacos. Posole. Pho. Migas. Tots. Whether your tastes run toward 'cross the pond cures (Hopfields!) or something south of the border (Taco More!), here's an Eater sampling of Austin's finest hangover dishes. Those looking for further advice should also consult the Eater Austin Hangover Cure Bible.

This special SXSW 2014 update of the previous map features cure destinations far from the downtown crowds (Korea House) and some right smack in the middle of the action (Juiceland). Anyone who doesn't need this map already will surely need it soon.
