    I live in England and have never seen melted cheese. Just sayin’. Though it does look delicious in the image. I’d definitely get down on that if I was drinking.

    1. Darin says:

      Too Bad. finally some UK food that does not involve blood, jellied eels, brains or other assorted organs and you tell me it is a lie.

    2. Jamie says:

      You never seen melted cheese?! Seriously? Its on everything chicken, burgers and pasta. Cheesy chips is a very popular dish in the north. Anyway I’d say kebabs were the drunks favourite food.

  2. Pedro says:

    The author here has never been to Brazil either. Acarajé is from a particular region of the country.

  3. Anthony says:

    Where did you get this crap from? No one eats chips with cheese sauce in England, you can’t even get it over here. Cheesy chips are smothered in melted cheddar or mozarella. In any case, nationally, our favourite drunk food is kebab.

    1. Bobby says:


      I was about to say the same thing. When I saw the Doner Kabob from Turkey, I told my wife that THIS was what we ate in England when drunk.

  4. Jacko says:

    I can 100% say that absolutely NOBODY in Ireland eats champ after a night out, there wouldn’t be anywhere even to buy it. It’s barely even eaten in sobriety (I’ve never had it) and definitely not in a drunken mess. More like taco chips or garlic cheese chips or a kebab or something; definitely NOT champ.

  5. Excal says:

    I don’t even think this got America right. Sure, we’ll eat pizza drunk, but unless you’re in a the middle of a big city, your pizza place closed before you stumbled out of the bar. It’ll be diner food: burgers, chicken strips or wings, or greasy breakfasts.

    1. Darin says:

      shoot. here in the south (of the USA) it is breakfast food (eggs, grits, hash browns, etc) from IHOP or Waffle House
      or maybe chicken and waffles if you know a good soul food place open at that hour.

  6. Pleasantness says:

    Ontario, Canada: We don’t really eat poutine that much, it’s more of a stereotype. We eat pizza like just America :)

  7. Jenna says:

    I second that about Canada– we eat our poutine sober (because it’s AMAZING!!!)… our go-to drunk food is almost ALWAYS pizza (if we’re staying in, we’ll order it), or if there is a 24 hour Chinese or breakfast restaurant, we’d go there. NOT POUTINE… no one serves poutine at that time!

  8. Drew says:

    Smazeny Syr, (one of) the go-to foods for drunks in Czech Republic, does not use Mozzarella. It uses Edam typically, but can also be made with Hermelin, and does not always come on a bun (though, admittedly, when drunk we normally grab a sandwich).

    When making it at home, I normally use Gouda, incidentally…

  9. Transplant says:

    I can argue with the German one. We eat the same thing as the Turks here. Kebab 4 life! Also, I’ve never seen someone cover their fries in mayonnaise.

  10. Savio says:

    Mexico is correct, we also have different foods according to the region for example in my city is percherones (big jumbo burrito) and hot dogs, but tacos ( I mean real tacos, no taco bell crap) are always good and always available at any time.

  11. karlnapp says:

    Czech Republic – it is not a Mozarella paddy. It is Edam or Emmental cheese, and mostly not served as a sandwich, but with fries.

  12. B says:

    Döner Kebab was actually invented in Germany, and is definitely the drunk food of choice..
    I think Turkey is more so Turkish Pizza, which is similair to döner kebab.
    Yes currywurst and pommes is definitely German
    Though the German picture remind me of french fries special from Holland.
    Source.. I live in Germany

  13. kevin says:

    My fave drunk food is chili cheese fries. I start with shoestring fries nice and crisp, drench them with nacho cheese, then add dollops of chili.

  14. dan says:

    The Japanese eat Ramen before (or while) getting drunk. The official post-drinking meal is Yoshinoya, or beef bowl. rice, veggies, and meet layered in a bowl.
