monkey brain2Good afternoon, pretty ponies!  How the heck are you?

We have pre-empted our usual Sunday spiel in favour of a mid week shout out as this Saturday, the gang at H.A head to Parksville for our annual summer getaway. We miss the Coombs Market and the rooftop goats.  We hope you are thriving and having your own fab adventures!

This edition of Weekly Shout Out features, wait for it… Monkey Brain.  Now, before you drop everything and call PETA and the SPCA, let us assure you that not a single primate was harmed in the creation of this post.

Victoria Sushi, nestled in Victoria’s Westside Village Shopping Centre,opened a few months ago and quickly gained a fervent following. It is at this beloved neighbourhood boite we discovered the aforementioned dish which is, we assure you, 100% cranium free.  This lil’ monkey consists of a ripe avocado which is coated in panko crumbs, quartered, stuffed with a mixture of spicy tuna and fresh crabmeat and, finally, drizzled with a most heavenly sauce which combines the sweetness of teriyaki with the deep umami savouriness of oyster sauce. The whole dish, with its contrasting textures of soft avocado and crunchy panko, spicy seafood and sweet yet savoury sauce, is rhapsodically good. Check it out here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BIdgDUbBIqB/?taken-by=horsingaroundvictoria.We like to order a vegetable sunomono salad to round out the meal as  cool slippery noodles, bathed in light lemony dressing, are refreshing in the summer heat and the accompanying garnish of orange, strawberry, cucumber and cabbage is almost too beautiful to eat. Ogle the sunomono splendour here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BIdf8SsByP9/?taken-by=horsingaroundvictoria  The monkey brain, vegetable sunomono salad and complementary green tea ring in at just $10.29, making this a repast that even Paltry Pete, Horsing Around’s premiere value oriented rooster, can crow about.  You can eat in the restaurant (service is efficient and speedy) or take your order to go and enjoy your brainy binge at home. Bon Appetit!

Well, there you have it folks! Have YOU eaten a monkey brain or do you have a different unusual dish to recommend?  Visit our Facebook and Twitter page and tell Uncle Monty about it!.  As always, we love hearing from you.

Weekly Shout Out will resume the week of August 14 with, we hope, a few updates in between, time permitting.

Happy travels, pretty ponies!  Have a fantastic week.MonkeyBrain_Books
