As you traveling on the 91 freeway take the Mission Inn exit and you will enter into Downtown Riverside. Riverside, a city that has a deep heritage of innovation, creativity, and food. Like many cities in Southern California the citrus industry was the catalyst for growth, however, the City of Riverside is where the Citrus Industry was born.
The Riverside Food Lab that combines innovation, creativity, and food, all in one location. The Food Lab was built from the bones of the “Mission Revival” preserved modernistic style inside. Combines all the favors in the inland Empire in one central location. Let your taste buds roam: unique authentic ethnic cuisines which range from the creole southern flavors at DHAT Creole Grill to the complex flavors of from India at the Masala Mischief. Too much flavor for you, try a veggie burger, out of this world at Monty’s Good Burger. Or a bit of a pork-aterian try a burger at Pig Pen Delicacy in their signature mac’n cheese bun. Another fav, Dia De Los Puercos. There’s no playing it safe get the Los 5150 (Nachos) topped with chicharron de queso.
The Riverside Food Lad is the first food hall in the IE, it sets a standard, It illustrates the beloved ethnic diversity of this region in one ecosystem. In a world that can be so divided the Riverside Food Labs show that different flavors can work together to create something truly amazing.
Food is everything we are.
