Wokcano’s Monkey Brain Sushi Roll Is Truly Insane

In a society driven by innovation, not even food is safe. So, it’s easy to see how the brilliant culinary minds at Wokcano, who have been serving Asian-inspired cuisine in Southern California since 2009, have used their collective gastronomic intelligence to dream up their latest item — The Monkey Brain.  

While Wokcano’s newest menu item isn’t exactly what it sounds like, the concept behind the naming convention seems to fit the primary characteristics. Named after its visual presentation, Wokcano’s Monkey Brain contains sliced avocado, crab meat, and spicy tuna, fried in tempura batter, and topped with a spicy eel sauce.

While its name might turn a few heads — the Monkey Brain can only be found at Wokcano at MainPlace Mall.

Umami Burger Chain Now Has a Deep Fried Ice Cream Sandwich Called the ‘UFO’

It’s called the UFO, a dessert now available at the Laguna Beach location of the Umami Burger chain which means.

The dessert features a vanilla-maple cream filled oatmeal cookie sandwich, tempura battered and fried, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and coarse sea salt. Not sure where the UFO reference comes from, either from the shape…or the strange alien concoction. The new item joins Umami Burger’s location-specific Lemon Miso Crab Melt, and outside of the Umami Los Feliz location, will only be available at Laguna Beach location.
