Is the Hot Cheetos trend finally over? If you asked me a year ago, I would have said yes. Yet, a restaurant has found an innovative way to feature the viral ingredient that’s kind of blowing our minds. 

Callahan’s, formally in Norwalk, NJ, featured a Flamin Hot Cheetos-breaded soft shell crab served with pale ale queso, even more Cheetos, arugula salad, and was served on a fresh double Martin’s potato bun. You can see from influencer @CheatDayEats‘ video, the entire mouthwatering process of this sandwich.

The restaurant even offered a Cool Ranch Doritos version of the soft shell crab sandwich not long after. 

In 2020, Callahans had to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic but continues to offer catering to patrons. During this time, they’ve been operating through their food trucks for catering and private events. 

However, the restaurant announced that there will be a new storefront opening up in September 2021.
