Rock House Sliders

By Krishan Narsinghani x Vaughn Lowery x McCellies Mason

As of late, Rock House Sliders Hollywood [RHSH] opened its doors to the American market and 360 Magazine had the grand opportunity to attend the soft opening. The restaurant is located at 7950 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Parking is offered underneath the property until 9:00pm with validation.

RHSH originates from Kuwait, an Arab country on the Persian Gulf. Currently, the chain possesses ten locations within the Middle East. The company plans to expand to Santa Monica and Downtown Los Angeles. In the near future, they will privately deliver fresh hot food until 3:00am.

Upon entry, guests are embraced by friendly staff and instantly mesmorized by modern ambiance – open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and white walls. The furniture is ergonomically trendy and transforms the venue from traditional dine-in to a pet friendly hotspot. The menu was formulated by a consultant chef serving Angus beef and grass-fed cow alongside of vegan options.

The restaurant serves six mouth-watering 2oz juicy burgers. Listed include: Original Rocker, Original Chicken, Spicy Chicken, Boston Mushroom, Chipotle BBQ Ranch and Kick My Boss. Prices vary from $2.89 to $3.89 and are coupled with tantalizing sides of french fries (w/o cheese), hand breaded onion rings, hand breaded buffalo tenders and cheddar tots. The Original Crispy Chicken Sandwich is perfectly crafted for a savory and succulent bite.

The ‘Messy Fries’ (reminscent of tangy nachos at one of your favorite cantinas) was the 360 team’s personal favorite – topped with relish, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, thousand island and beef bacon bits. All sides perfectly pair with their in-house made sauces. For dessert, cool off with some of their signature Black Ice Cream or one of their delicious all-natural milkshakes.
