On April 20, Eddie Huang's Boahaus in the East Village brought back its special Cheeto-fried chicken bao in celebration of every stoner's favorite holiday. In February, the Bagel Nook in New Jersey unveiled a Flamin' Hot Cheetos bagel. And last fall, a Chicago restaurant chain rolled out a new line of sushi burritos coated in Cheetos, because nothing is sacred anymore.
The trend of slapping the popular snack on all sorts of food is alive and well, and it isn't showing any signs of slowing down. This month, chip-monger Frito-Lay is bringing another Cheeto-filled menu to New York, disheartening epicures across the city in the process.
Dubbed the Spotted Cheetah, the restaurant will be open for three nights (August 15–17) at 211 W Broadway in Tribeca and offers a three-course menu of dishes jam-packed with the orange indulgences. Created by celebrity chef Anne Burrell, the pop-up spot offers delicacies like Cheetos Meatballs, Flamin' Hot and White Cheddar Mac n' Cheetos and Cheetos Sweetos Crusted Cheesecake.
Eating at the restaurant isn't expensive—the menu ranges in price from $8 to $22, which is perfect for any Cheeto lover who is used to spending just a couple bucks on a bag of the stuff. There are a limited number of reservations available, so hop on over to their website to try to nab a spot.
