Ever since The Simpsons turned a Burbank 7-11 into a Quickie Mart back in 2007, television and restaurant makeovers have been a match made in marketing heaven. Now, just in time for the Netflix release of “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” the team responsible for the Peach Pit and Good Burger pop-ups have brought the Breaking Bad Experience to West Hollywood.
The show-inspired menu features Heisenburger Sliders, with either beef patties or Beyond Meat, and a Funyun Pie that almost sounds like prison food (but I’m sure is great!), Loaded SAULsa Nachos, and the Full Measure Grilled Cheese” made with white bread and pimento cheese (OK, I can’t guarantee that it will be even close to great). There is also a short dessert list, and Marie’ Purple Cake flavored with lavender syrup and blueberries sounds awesome. The food and drinks
have been judged to be delicious by Mark Blackwell, our guest photographer for this post. But I bet he didn’t eat grilled pimento cheese.
In addition to the bar and restaurant, the Experience, which opened October 16, has re-created sets and spots where you can pose calling Saul, working at Los Pollos Hermanos, or perched atop a pile of money. Instagram away!
The Breaking Bad Experience will be open from 4p.m. until 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Tickets, which will be available through the end of the year, are $30 a person and include entry, up to 90 minutes hanging out inside, and choice of your first liquid concoction and food item. Additional food and beverages can be purchased á la carte. It is recommended that all guests to be 18 years or older to participate. TICKETS.
