It’s been said that Trix isn’t just for kids, but that should go for all cereal. The statement is true enough in Los Angeles right now, at least, where cereal-inspired and adapted fare is a current haute trend.
Here, we share some of the hottest cereal dishes on the menu at some of the hautest L.A. menus.
  •  Pie Hole (Locations in Pasadena, the Arts District and Hollywood): Cereal Killer Cheesecake: A Fruity Pebbles cheesecake with a Nilla Wafer crust topped with Frosted Flakes. Oh.my.god.

  • Leona (123 W Washington Blvd, Venice,(310) 822-5379): Adult Frosted Flakes: A bowl of brown-rice pudding laced with dark rum and top-layered with cereal.
  • Ridges Churro Bar: Fruity Pebbles Churro. Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like—a churro rolled in fruity pebble greatness from the innovative churro food truck.
