On a mostly industrial strip of Valley Blvd. in El Sereno there is a welcome newbie to the food scene in the neighborhood.
A location that has been a burger joint, Mexican joint, Italian joint etc.....is now Red Hot Kitchen - Asian Fusion. Yeah!
Just went on Saturday finally even though it's in my neighborhood and was impressed.
I had a short rib taco and a spicy pork taco. Both were very good.......the meats were tender w/no gristle or fat........very flavorful. They come on grilled corn tortillas and the meats are covered w/a a mix of lettuce, cabbage, cilantro, tomato and salsa that all work really well together w/the meat.
Other menu items are.....
Mushroom poppers, jalapeno bomb, kimchi quesadilla, Korean taco ssam, oriental chicken salad, avocado mango salad, teriyaki torta (chicken, beef, short rib or pork), shrimp crunch roll, chorizo roll, fried rice (chicken, beef, shrimp, pork, chorizo, tofu), teriyaki bowl (chicken, beef, salmon, spicy pork, pork cutlet, chicken cutlet), spicy chicken wings and tacos or burritos (chicken, beef, spicy pork, short rib, tofu), bbq Korean 1/2 lb. burger.
The tacos were good sized and 2.00 each. I was pretty full w/the two of them.
I will definitely be trying more of their menu items and report back.
