What causes food hangover?

Last night we had a fabulous dinner at Bastone in Royal Oak, Michigan. Seriously, I had some of the BEST scallops I have ever had. They were encrusted with hazelnuts and pan seared. They were served with mushroom rissoto and veggies. I woke up this morning with the worst food hangover.....groggy and puffy with a headache ( I had very little alcohol). I have noticed this before but only when eating at a restaurant. Is it caused by too much salt? MSG? Does this ever happen to anyone else?
