Hot Hot Food

Hot, Hot Food is an all-day spot in Silver Lake with a fun, bright space that fits in with the neighborhood. But their menu is all over the place, and not in a good way. They specialize in something they call “LA fried rice,” which is essentially regular fried rice with things like pork carnitas, jidori chicken, or chili and brisket mixed in. They have some heavier breakfast items, a few random salads, and some sides that are clearly catering to the friendly local stoner crowd (tortillas and butter anyone?). Nothing tastes bad, but outside of being blackout at 3am, when do you really feel like eating chili-topped fried rice and mac and cheese with goldfish crackers? Related: they close at 10pm.
