The new restaurant now opens its doors to the public at 541 S. Spring Street, Suite 131, Los Angeles, CA 90013.

The diner’s signature item - Char Siu - is marinated for days, slow cooked for hours making it tender and caramelized to lock in the flavor. The masterful final touch is glazing it with honey.

Diners can create custom rice boxes, choosing from the signature char siu, black soy- poached chicken, crispy seven spice porchetta, or a vegan special. The eatery’s menu also features modern twists in its bao offerings. These fluffy almond milk bao are made daily and filled with original char siu, cheesy char siu, or vegan shitake mushroom with vegan char siu marinade.

Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, RiceBox serves lunch and dinner six days a week. During Soft Opening period till 10/2, RiceBox will be open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Starting on 10/2, RiceBox will open from Tuesday through Saturday from 11a.m. to 4p.m. For more information, please dial (626) 360-6912 or visit http://www.ricebox.net/.
