Hartbreakers is from the same people behind Champs Diner, and it’s another great place to get some vegan food that won’t necessarily make you feel like a healthier person. This Bushwick restaurant specializes in big fried “chicken” sandwiches topped with things like ranch and cheese sauce, and we especially like the one with seitan bacon, vegan cheddar, pickled red onion, and cole slaw (called the Picnic Basket). There are also a couple of veggie burgers and a few salads - but just go the chicken sandwich route, and add a side of waffle fries. Order at the counter, then either enjoy your sandwich in the tiny, brightly colored dining room, or run home and eat it before the bun gets soggy.
