A burglar made a clean getaway from a Long Island restaurant after emptying the cash register — cooking a meal and washing the dishes.

Will Colon found bent burglar bars when he arrived Tuesday at his eatery, Nelly’s Taqueria in Hicksville, he told Newsday.

Security video showed the intruder heating up a pot before hammering the register open. He then starts “cooking up a storm” in the dark — beans, chicken, shrimp, Colon said, adding, “The dude had some skills.”

After eating, he refrigerat­ed the food and wiped down surfaces.
