Where we've featured it
Thank god Rice Box has curbside pick-up, because even during quarantine, Downtown LA is still filled to the brim with bikers with death wishes and far too many one-way streets. And we’re not saying that we wouldn’t order from here even if we did have to find parking - their boxes of affordable Cantonese dishes like honey-roasted char siu and wild mushroom bao are worth the trip alone - but let’s just say, much like having your debit card memorized, curbside service makes life a whole lot easier. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (213) 988-7395 to place an order, then give them a call when you’re outside.
If you’re looking for quick, inexpensive Cantonese food, Ricebox should be your move. In addition to appetizers such as salt-and-pepper chili wings and wild mushroom bao (both less than $10), for just $15, you can build your own box with a choice of rice plus Chinese faves like roasted and honey-glazed char siu, porchetta belly, or mapo eggplant. Plus, with all that money you’re saving, you can finally focus on paying for things that actually matter, like your electricity bill, or this hyper-realistic portrait of Mr. Peanut. Available for takeout and delivery, call (213) 988-7395 to order or find them on most major delivery apps.
Located in the DTLA’s Spring Arcade Building, RiceBox is a Cantonese restaurant that specializes in modern BBQ. That means a mix of dishes like bao filled with Monterey Jack cheese and Impossible meat dumplings alongside honey-glazed char siu and soy-sauce chicken. They’re also now selling frozen bulk packages of their egg rolls, and entire Peking ducks for pre-order. Call (213) 988-7395, email (email@example.com), or find them on most major delivery platforms.
