Obviously, very salty or sweet foods might do that, but for me, there are just some foods where I always feel super thirsty after eating them. I've noticed things with a lot of tomato sauce fit the bill, especially pizza but also some pasta and subs/sandwiches with tomato sauce like the meatbal sub from subway. I love pizza, but after eating a pizza I have to have a drink. Maybe because your average pizza has a hell of a lot of salt in it, not just the sauce but pepperoni etc if it's got it. Also if the crust is really dry, the whole combo. I don't know what it is, but I think tomato paste/thick sauce just seems to make me really thirsty.

Burgers and stuff too, and I guess drier foods like sandwiches. On the other hand an Asian noodle soup not so much obviously.

High-fat foods will make you really thirsty. They're drier than they seem. Oil can make really dry foods taste moist, and after you eat them your body says "I need more water to go with that". Pizza is an example of (usually) both high fat and high salt.

Country ham biscuits!

And I mean real country ham...salt cured...and hasn't been "soaked" to relieve it of any salt. Just like we do at home...slice it thin off the ham, put it in a frying pan, give it a touch of color, slap a few slices on a biscuit & pig out...and THEN drink as much water as you can until lunch rolls around!
