Broken Mouth

Perfect For:Dining SoloLunch

Broken Mouth is located in the middle of the chaotic Fashion District, but it’s the kind of calm, high-quality lunch spot this part of downtown could use more of. You’re coming here for fantastic Hawaiian and Filipino food - the shrimp fritter plate is simple, buttery goodness, the spicy chicken sandwich is huge and actually spicy, and the bread pudding is worth saving room for. Plus, everything falls either at or below the $10 mark, so you won’t even feel guilty when you overorder. Broken Mouth offers full sit-down service, but the place is quite small, so full team lunch outing this is not - use it for takeout or a solo meal.
