Men in the Kitchen located at 9003 N Crescent Blvd (Route 130 South) in Pennsauken is not only serving up kicked-up sandwiches and belly-busting barbecue, but they’re also offering banging burritos and other tasty selections.
The menu is heavy on BBQ pit favorites, soul food specials, and mouth-watering sides they say are so good it’ll “keep you coming back!” Upon my visit today, I wanted to try the soul-full burritos that JL Jupiter raved about after a recent drop-in.
There are a total of four Soul-Full Burritos to choose from: Brisket, Jerk Chicken, Pulled Pork, and Fish & Shrimp. Upon my visit today, they also offered a Crab Cake Burrito and a Catfish Burrito. I would have loved to try them all, but I chose the Jerk Chicken and Crab Cake Burritos for today’s sampling purpose.
If you especially like spicy food, the Jerk Chicken Burrito ($5) is for you. The well-seasoned shredded chicken will wake up your taste buds for sure. Combined with creamy macaroni and cheese and slightly tangy cabbage, it’s a genuinely satisfying flavor explosion. The heat of this burrito may be a bit much for some folks, but it did not deter me. I found it downright irresistible.
The Crab Cake Burrito ($7) was much more on the milder side. Housemade seasoned crab cakes combined with Cajun rice and sauteed spinach created a pleasurable bite. This burrito also came with homemade tartar sauce, which I appreciated.
Prices are very affordable making the burritos a solid lunch choice. I’m eager to try the catfish burrito next time and… everything else on the menu. In fact, they told me today they will be launching breakfast soon, which is quite exciting to me. Stay tuned!
If you go, keep in the mind it’s more of a take-out place and not a full-scale restaurant. You place your order, wait while they prepare it, and carry it out. They suggest calling ahead for quicker pick-up: (609) 543-9003.
Skip the Taco Bell and head to Men in the Kitchen for soul-full, fresh-made burritos that will leave you so-full and happy.
