If you work in Midtown East, just go straight to Pampano for lunch. This Mexican takeout counter in the atrium of an office building on 3rd Avenue serves massive burritos and really good tacos. Get the chicken or shrimp tacos on corn tortillas, and load up on the different options from the DIY salsa bar. If you want a breakfast change-up from your usual oatmeal and half a banana, stop here on your way to work and get a breakfast burrito with chorizo.
