Beef Tendon Churrones with Sriracha Sugar and Mexican Chocolate
From Eagle Rock Brewery. Definitely the best beef-tendon-based dessert I’ve ever had.
Sriracha Barbecued Glazed Smoked Spare Rib with Sriracha BBQ sauce
From Beachwood BBQ. The Sriracha-infused BBQ sauce is an idea worth stealing. Borrowing. Whatever.
Sriracha Marinated Chimichurri Steak
From Komodo. Just when you think Los Angeles chefs have done everything they can to the taco, another innovation.
Disarrano Spice Sour (Disarrano Amaretto, Mango, Lemon, Sriracha)
From Jason Bran. Had about 17 of these. Or four. Don’t know. Lost Count.
Spicy Fried Rice with Tofu and Sriracha and Tamarind Dip with Chicken
From Jitlada. This was the hottest dish at the festival and well worth turning the temperature of my mouth to the surface of Venus.
From the Gadarene Swine - Scratch Bar. Do not let its fancy appearance or the fact that you don’t know what yucca is fool you. Pretty damn delicious.
Grilled Cheese with Bacon, Sriracha, Egg, Red Onion and a Tomato Sriracha Soup Dip
From Greenspan’s. Oh, lord, not another LA chef putting their own personal spin on comfort food … nom-nom-nom … so good. I’ll shut up now.
Spicy Pork Tan Tan Ramen
From Eggslut. Eggslut’s fans are legion. It’s easy to see why.
Sriracha Crawfish Mac ‘N Cheese with Spicy House Andouille Sausage
From The Little Jewel of New Orleans. Somewhere a Tabasco executive nervously pours himself a very large bourbon.
Peruvian Steak Sandwich
From Mendocino Farms. Some food festival booths serve patrons one little bite of food. Not Mendocino. Mendocino’s like, “Here’s half a damn sandwich.”
Salad of Sriracha Braised Pumpkin
From Mudhen Tavern. Pumpkin and green Sriracha. You don’t think it’s going to work. But then it totally works.
Pork and Chicken Meatball with Tamarind Vinaigrette, Green Papaya Slaw, Herb Salad and Crispy Garlic
From Shophouse. Put it on the menu, Shophouse.
Smoked Berkshire Pork Belly
From Willy B’s. Pork belly is very hot in Los Angeles-and even hotter when you put Sriracha on it.
Whole Wheat Sriracha Black Bottom Meyer Lemon Custard Pie
From Red Bread. Yep, Sriracha pie. Why not?
