Hash browns already slotted their way into a complete breakfast, but MIT — as they do — have taken the side dish to the next level.

Students and faculty alike were able to enjoy Tetris-themed hash browns in the university student center Wednesday, with at least one taste-tester describing the offering as “delicious.’’
