Cheetos Brought Back Its ALL-CHEETOS RESTAURANT To Los Angeles For Three Days

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.

Appetizers

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.

Entrees

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.

Desserts

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. If you want to make these dishes at home, you can order the ingredients and recipes to make the items yourself via AmazonFresh.

The Recipes Of The Dishes At Cheetos’ Pop-Up Restaurant Are Now Available To You

Cheetos is currently in the middle of serving up some scrumptious looking cheesy chip dishes at The Spotted Cheetah, their exclusive pop-up restaurant in New York City. With only 300 seats available in their OpenTable reservations, you can imagine that they filled up quickly once news broke. According to the Wall Street Journal, it took just six hours for all of the seats to fill up, and a waitlist that was developed afterward had over 1,000 spots on it. Basically, that means getting into the restaurant now is nigh impossible.

Frito-Lay, the company that owns Cheetos, still wants to make sure you can at least get a tasting of what the Cheetos restaurant is like. To do that, they created an online cookbook that contains recipes for every single item that could be ordered off of The Spotted Cheetah’s menu. So if you really wanted to know what it would be like to try their Flamin’ Hot Mac N’ Cheetos or wanted to recreate the Cheetos Crusted Fried Pickles for yourself, you can do that. You do have to go and buy the ingredients yourself, however, but with prices at the restaurant ranging from $8 to $22 based on what you order, you’ll probably be saving a bit of money by DIYing it anyway.

Still, it would’ve been cool to experience the upscale Cheetos restaurant firsthand, and with the overwhelming demand for this first iteration, there could always be a second Cheetos pop-up happening just around the corner. It’s definitely a possibility.

For Three Days Only, Cheetos Is Opening An ALL-CHEETOS RESTAURANT

Putting Cheetos on everything, from pizza to macaroni and cheese, has become such a major food trend of late that the chip brand has decided to go “all in” on the Cheeto recipe game.

They’ve teamed up with celebrity chef Anne Burrell to launch The Spotted Cheetah in New York, a restaurant whose entire menu is laced with regular and Flamin’ Hot versions of this classic cheesy chip.

Customers of this exclusive pop-up will get to choose between four appetizers, four entrees, and four desserts that all incorporate Cheetos.

Some menu highlights include Cheetos crusted fried pickles and green tomatoes, Flamin’ Hot Mac and Cheetos (as a pasta dish, not to be confused with Burger King’s snack item), Flamin’ Hot Limón chicken tacos, and a cheesecake made with a Cheetos Sweetos crust.

If that all sounds as droolworthy to you as it does to us, head on over to the website FAST. The restaurant, which is located in New York, will only be open from August 15-17, and just began accepting OpenTable reservations, so if you wanna claim a seat, I’d recommend doing it right now.

EDIT: It looks like all of the initial OpenTable reservations are filled. If you still want a chance at getting into this all-Cheetos restaurant, however, a waitlist has been set up that you can put your reservation on. Who knows? Maybe you can still get in through that way.
