Chinatown's Getting A Spicy Sriracha Festival In October
If you're addicted to the spicy goodness of Sriracha, you'll be happy to know that there's a whole food festival dedicated to it in Chinatown on October 19.
This second annual L.A. Sriracha Festival will be taking place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Chinatown's Central Plaza. Savory Sriracha-themed dishes will be served at the event, created by the chefs of Sqirl, Jitlada, Mud Hen Tavern, Eggslut, Greenspan's Grilled Cheese, Little Jewel of New Orleans, Mendocino Farms, and Beachwood BBQ, among others. And as for desserts, Crème Caramel LA, McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams and Red Bread will be there.
If you're worried that you might not be able to take the heat, the event will also be serving local craft beer (like Golden Road Brewing and Eagle Rock Brewery), cocktails, craft sodas, tea, and coffee (from Portola Coffee Lab) to cool you down.
General admission tickets are $59 in advance and $69 at the door. If you get VIP passes that cost $90 (and $100 at the door), you can get in an hour earlier at 2 p.m. and get reserved seating. This is a 21+ event. Tickets can be purchased online here.
