Happy Hour Deals at Wokcano
Okay, so it's not Nobu -- but who has the bank account to handle $200 sushi fests nowadays? Wokcano offers good happy hour prices in convenient locations for your after-work bitch fests -- the menu will make even the sushi-shy happy. And hey, if you don't have a job, then you can get to happy hour that much earlier! From 4-7pm, sneak in a cocktail or two and some creative rolls like The Black Pearl and the Late Night Party Roll (crabmeat, avocado, scallops, and lobster). Yeah, maybe you sushi purists should show yourselves the door, but who's going to argue with lychee martinis and Asian bloody Marys? Not this girl.
Appetizers and sushi range from $3-$6.50, and portions aren't small, so even a few plates will probably satisfy for dinner. Stick with favorites like calamari, the "Golden Triangle" roll (asparagus, avocado, and tuna), and spicy garlic shrimp. It's a Sunday through Friday deal, when you can snag wines for $4 per glass and martinis for about $6. Half off all beer and well drinks means that the real bargain hunter can get a nice buzz on for under $10, easily. There's also a new location opening up in Long Beach, so those of you down south can take part as well. LAist checked out Wokcano's grand opening in Santa Monica last year.
