You either like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos or you don’t, and the people who like them tend be absolutely obsessed. I mean how could you not be? They’re spicy, crunchy and just overall amazing.
Even though Hot Cheetos have always been a favorite for elementary school lunches, they have recently become a food trend for young adults. All different types of restaurants in Southern California have been creating unique Hot Cheeto menu items and they are all definitely must tries. Just beware, you might have to drive a little far.
1. The Attic
Welcome to the home of Hot Cheetos and mac n’ cheese. Anyone who lives in Long Beach knows that The Attic is the place to go to satisfy any weird cravings you might have. Especially if those cravings include Hot Cheetos.
2. Red Eye Fish
Yep. That’s right. This place has sushi topped with Hot Cheetos, and I know it sounds a little weird but don’t knock it till you try it.
3. Krazy Wings and Philly
If you’re a fan of wings and spicy things then this is the place for you. Their wings are covered in Hot Cheeto crumbles, so with each bite, you have the perfect amount of spice.
4. The Low-Key Poke Joint
Welcome to the home of build your own poké. Even though this restaurant has only been around for a year, it has quickly grown to be one of SoCal’s favorite poké stops due to its unique toppings. I mean, where else can you put Hot Cheetos on your poké?
5. Dogzilla Hot Dogs
Their saying “not your typical wiener” is most definitely true. They offer a variety of ingredients like bacon, teriyaki sauce, and fried egg to slather on the wiener of you choice, but more importantly, they have Hot Cheetos.
6. Pie Dog
If you want a burger that will remind you of your childhood lunches then Pie Dog is the place for you. They take a normal burger but then top it with some childhood favorites, Hot Cheetos and Kraft mac n’ cheese. Sounds like the best way to reminisce about your past to me.
7. Lock & Key Social Drinkery
A Hot Cheeto pie? I know it sounds disgusting but it’s not what you think. This small Downey bar takes Hot Cheetos and tops it with jalapeño brined nacho cheese, chorizo, lemon sour cream and green onions. Take my advice and go try it, you won’t be disappointed.
