Last year, Cheetos hosted a pop-up restaurant in New York City where all of the items used some of their cheesy chips. After its viral success, they’ve decided to bring it back for another run, but this time, in Los Angeles.
The new Cheetos pop-up was helmed by street food legend Roy Choi, who’s developed an entire menu of creations based on his style of cooking. In total, there will be three appetizers, four entrees, and three desserts to choose from, with everything pricing between $11 and $32.
Below is a look at the entire menu Choi served up at “The Flamin’ Hot Spot,” the name given to his three-day Cheetos restaurant.
Flamin’ Hot Elotes
The buttered corn is covered with white cheddar and Flamin’ Hot cheese puffs in this Cheetos-packed take on the classic street food.
Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Wings
These are like buffalo wings with the ranch already on top, since they’re crusted in Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Cheetos. There’s still some on the side for dipping, though.
Cheetos Sweet n’ Spicy Chili Meatballs
A blend of sweet chili sauce and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos come together to create this fiery flavor combination.
Xxtra Flamin’ Hot Rice Bowl
This rice bowl packs more of a punch than the other dishes since it uses Xxtra Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. There’s some sour cream to help cool it down if it’s too much for you, though.
Hot Cheetos Burrito
This burrito comes in both meaty and vegetarian options. You can opt for short rib or avocado to go along with cheese, chili sour cream sauce, and Cheetos.
Flamin’ Hot Fries
Loaded fries get an upgrade in this dish, as the crispy spuds are swapped out for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos puffs.
Five Alarm Cheetos Steak
Served sizzling hot to the table, this steak comes with a side of charred jalapenos and rice topped with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Cheetos Sweetos Hot Cakes
Classic pancakes are twisted up with the addition of caramel Cheetos Sweetos alongside whipped cream and chocolate for a breakfast spin on dessert.
Chester’s Cheetos Churros
Probably the most intriguing dish of the entire set, White Cheddar cheese puffs are paired with caramel and sweet whipped cream. I’m curious to see how the white cheddar flavor plays into dessert.
“Hot” Chocolate Shake
Choi’s take on a chocolate shake blends in Hot Cheetos and raspberries for a blend of sweet, spicy, and fruity. They’re garnished with a chocolate-coated spicy chip, an interesting flavor blend for sure.
Reservations were booked at a lightning speed this year, but Foodbeast was able to check all of the dishes out firsthand. You can see how all of the food tasted in the above episode of News Bites.
