Fat Rice is all the rage right now (see page 12 for proof). But let’s talk about what’s happening in Fat Rice’s basement. That’s where Adrienne Lo—one of Fat Rice’s chef/owners—does all the production for her nut brittle company, Mama’s Nuts. Lo makes every crunchy, addictive flavor (the mocha stout and Provencale-garlic almonds are the most popular) herself. Is it crazy she does so while running a restaurant that quotes two-hour waits by 6:30pm? Yes. Crazy smart.
