Best Way to Work on Tomorrow’s Hangover, Tonight
Meaghan Habuda

After-midnight grub is sometimes hard to find, especially when it’s on this level of tasty, but that’s not the only appeal of La Teresita. The West Tampa joint’s breaded steak (another spotlighted Food Issue sandwich) absolutely extinguishes the flames of any hangover you might have brewing — and that’s a good thing. Ask your server to add two fried eggs on top for good measure, and thank me later. —Chris Fasick
