There is a special place in the world for food that will literally kill you. You can’t eat like this on a daily basis, your doctor won’t like it, and you’ll probably hate yourself a little after. But dammit, sometimes it just needs to happen. When that hunger strikes I recommend Breakroom Burgers & Tacos.
You’ll find this tiny hole-in-the-wall in Chinatown just south of Canal Street. It’s a small venue with two tables, a counter for ordering, and a few stools out front. The menu is small but it’ll fix you right up after a long night of drinking. I’m talking the kind of fix-up that can only come from burgers, fries, hot dogs and tacos. That’s all that you’ll find on the menu, and sometimes you don’t need to try any harder than that.
The food was gluttonous but all delicious. They have French fries literally drowning to death in bacon, spicy mayo, and cheese. It was beyond heaven. They have several versions of hot dogs but I recommend the one wrapped in bacon, dropped in the fryer, and smothered in jalapeños and salsa. They have every version of tacos and they are loaded up with fresh veggies, meat and sauce. You can round out your heart stopping, diabetes inducing meal with mountainous burgers layered with gooey cheese. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Here's what we had:
Breakroom Fries runny egg, bacon, onions, cheese, jalapeños & pork belly.
Tempura Fish Taco tempura-battered catfish, house slaw, avocado and pickled onions.
Grilled Steak Taco pico de gallo and salsa verde.
Chipotle Chicken Taco pico de gallo, cilantro, pickled onions and salsa verde.
Breakroom Burger 6oz. angus beef patty with mac n cheese, jalapenos, American cheese, tomatoes, bacon and onion
