Stefon says Los Angeles’ hottest restaurant is… sticky red Cheetos fingers.

A new Flamin’ Hot Cheetos restaurant (“Flamin’ Hot Spot”) is opening this month in Hollywood Hills, and when it does, guests will be treated to an outrageously red menu created by none other than celebrity chef Roy Choi, creator of the famous Kogi taco truck.

A press release outlined the menu as follows:

For the “ap-paw-tizers,” the kitchen will offer “Flamin' Hot Elotes,” “Flamin' Hot Chipotle Ranch Wings” and “Cheetos Sweet n' Spicy Chili Meatballs.”

For the main course (A.K.A. “Flamin' Eats), guests can choose between the “XXTRA Flamin' Hot Rice Bowl,” the “Hot Cheetos Burrito,” “Flamin' Hot Fries” or the “Five-Alarm Cheetos Steak.”

Finally, for dessert, there will be “Cheetos Sweetos Hot Cakes,” Chester's Cheetos Churros” and “‘Hot’ Chocolate Shakes.”

The Cheetos brand opened a similar pop-up restaurant last year in New York City, with recipes developed by the Food Network’s Anne Burrell. Reservations for that pop-up sold out in minutes, and the waiting list managed to stretch into the thousands.

The “Flamin’ Hot Spot” will be open from September 18th to September 20th. Reservations via OpenTable opened on Thursday and sold out almost immediately, though fans hoping to get a taste can sign themselves up for the waiting list by filling out a form on the pop-up’s website.

If, in the end, you are unable to make it, never fear! The recipes are also available online.
