If you’re having a rough morning, do yourself a favor: peel yourself off your bed and make your way to Pho K&K on Telegraph. This very casual pho spot is basically designed for your hangover, serving huge bowls of salty, meaty broth and lots of hot sauce to give you back those electrolytes (or whatever soup does to get rid of that about-to-die feeling). It’s also a great spot for a casual, non-hungover dinner with friends, since there’s rarely a wait, it’s super central, and you can focus even more on the food when you don’t have a pounding headache and a bunch of embarrassing text messages to delete.
