LA’s Hottest Brunch Spot Just Unveiled An All Cereal Dinner Menu

Breakfast is the best meal of the day, which is why it shouldn’t be overlooked once the clock passes noon. Whether it’s eggs and bacon or cereal, there are no limitations for when you should indulge in your morning favorites, and you’ll be happy to know an overwhelming portion of the population agrees.

For all you cereal fans out there, Kellogg’s has dreamed up the perfect dinner situation with you in mind.

The Los Angeles-based cafe Sqirl and Kellogg’s have teamed up to bring you “Breakfast For Dinner,” a unique, limited-time, breakfast-themed pop-up featuring innovative sweet, savory and delicious cereal-infused dishes that are sure to please any breakfast-lover.

Beginning Thursday, September 21 through Saturday, September 23, Sqirl is showing off its love for brinner, and you should too. Here’s a little sneak peak of some of the special items being offered.

Mark your calendars and bring your appetite, because no one wants to miss Breakfast For Dinner.

1. Froot Loops French Toast

This is Sqirl’s famed French toast, made with Froot Loops-steeped custard, topped with Froot Loops steeped creme fraiche, and finished with “Plum Jam” and Fruit Loops Streusel.

This cornucopia of flavors will transport you back to the days of your childhood as you embark on a journey of familiar sugary sweetness. The soft, buttery texture of the French Toast is elevated by the crispiness of Froot Loops.

2. Krispies Egg

Who doesn’t love sausage and eggs for breakfast? This Krispies Scotch Egg is an egg wrapped in Sqirl’s house pork sausage and breaded in Rice Krispies before frying.

A new way of presenting a “Scotch Egg,” it’s served with a market salad tossed with radish, shallot and Rice Krispies to keep the theme going.

3. Special K Tonkatsu Breakfast Bowl

Kokuho Rose Brown Rice, Special K cereal crusted and fried pork cutlet, tonkatsu sauce, pickles, sesame seed soft egg. A cross between southern fried steak and eggs, this savory pork cutlet, and soft-boiled egg find a perfect balance between the crispiness of Special K cereal.

4. Matcha Rice Krispies Treats with Smoked Strawberries

These are Rice Krispies with homemade fluff, green tea powder and smoked strawberries. If you’ve ever enjoyed adding fruit to your cereal, this soft and chewy treat is a must-try. Imagine a strawberry-infused Rice Krispies Treat, but with a twist.

5. Kellogg’s Cereal-Infused Sqirl Jam

What’s breakfast without toast and jam? For those that love to spread their jam on thick, this Sqirl and Kellogg’s cereal and fruit-infused jam was made specially for you.

Featuring peach and Frosted Flakes, and Plum and Raisin Bran, these sweet and fruity spreads create the perfect dichotomy between the familiar cereals of childhood, paired with the maturity of elegant fruit flavors.

Be careful, you might not want to share these limited time offerings. And if you can’t make it, why not experiment with creating these Kellogg’s treats in your own kitchen? Deliciousness knows no bounds.

Andrew Zimmern Says This Is The Best Ramen Spot In America

For years, we’ve been chasing the best bowl of tonkotsu ramen here in the United States. It seems we found a pretty big lead in the search, as world-acclaimed food travel host and chef Andrew Zimmern dropped some major ramen praise.

A recent visit to Menya Ultra prompted Andrew Zimmern to exclaime that the:

Best tonkatsu ramen in America might just be in San Diego!

This praise should not be taken lightly as Zimmern himself has been around the block a few times. The culinary authority has hosted such Travel Channel series’ as Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods America, and Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World.

It might be pretty safe to say he knows what he’s talking about.

A post shared by Menya Ultra (@menyaultra) on

Tonkotsu is a type of ramen broth made from pork bones which originated from the Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan. It’s arguably one of the best and iconic variations of the Japanese ramen dish.

Looks like we’re going to San Diego this weekend.

This Chicken Katsu Recipe Has A Cap’n Crunch Twist That’s Unbelievable

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 6.13.16 PM

If you’ve never tried to make chicken katsu, the Japanese, breaded chicken dish, maybe it’ll be a good idea to dive in with the Cap’n.

Perry Santanachote from Thrillist food thew down this Cap’n Crunch-coated Katsu recipe, and did so with a pretty easy preparation process.

There’s no heavy lifting involved and no crazy ingredients. It looks like a pretty standard breaded chicken recipe, except the panko flake coat is replaced with Cap’n Crunch cereal.

Santanachote recommends throwing the breaded chicken on a bed of white rice and although she doesn’t provide a Tonkatsu sauce recipe, some store-bought sauce will probably do the trick.

This cereal remix sounds like an absolute must if you’re in the mood to experiment.

Check out the full recipe on Thrillist.

Craving: Bento Box

I think I’m just on a roll with this Japanese thing because right about now, I’m craving a bento box. A tray divided into several compartments and usually served with rice, a meat, and some sort of vegetable and pickled goodness. I usually like to get tonkatsu which is just deep fried pork cutlet. Think fried chicken but with pork only super tender and melt in your mouth. My favorite place to get this deliciousness is Mentatsu because it’s just down the street from me and it’s open late. (Thx Nerve)
