From the creators of Boba Hut in Spring Valley and the Japanese- and Thai-inspired Curry Hut in the northwest, grill-your-own-proteins restaurant Sizzle Hut is officially ready to debut in the southwest.
Announcing a “soft opening” on Feb. 23 from noon to midnight, the restaurant replaces Pot Tea Social House, close to the intersection of Windmill Lane and Rainbow Boulevard.
Similar in preparation to Japanese “D-I-Y teppan” chain Pepper Lunch, still rumored to be headed to Chinatown, Sizzle Hut allows each diner to individually cook their dishes, turning the meats roughly every 15 seconds.
On the menu, appetizers include chicken karaage with fries, crispy calamari, a “Chef’s cheese board,” jamón Ibérico Paleta Bellota, and kurobuta sausage. Soup options include the uncommon corn chowder upgraded with foie gras.
Each “sizzling plate” is served with mashed potatoes and options of sliced chuck beef, rib-eye steak, teriyaki chicken, salmon, pork belly, garlic shrimp, or braised or deep-fried tofu.
For dessert, the kid-friendly space also offers Oreo cheesecake, tiramisu, and a banana split.
