Sometimes, when you party a little too hard, you just might wake up the following morning (or afternoon!) with a dreaded hangover. If it’s severe and you’re in desperate need of a “cure,” then know that our menu has a special item that will have you feeling better in no time.
Yep, we’re talking about our menudo!
Humble Beginnings for a Life-Saving Elixir
Much like life’s most delicious and enjoyable things, menudo was born out of necessity. This “poor man’s soup,” as it was often referred to, was created by combining leftover meats, spices, and a four- to seven-hour stewing time. Because the dish is labor-intensive in nature, it was often reserved for special occasions and holidays. However, Delia’s has it readily available on Saturdays and Sundays!
The King of Country’s Seal of Approval
When asked by Daily Beast what his favorite hangover remedy is, country music legend George Strait revealed that he always counts on menudo.
“It’s very, very tasty,” he admitted. “When I happen to have the occasional hangover, which I try not do, if I can get some menudo, that’s what I get.”
Much like Strait, people everywhere swear by the dish’s healing powers. Now, we don’t exactly know what the science behind it is, but we know the ingredients, spices, and warmth that a bowl of menudo brings tend to make it all better.
