Curry House CoCo Ichibanya, the Japanese curry empire with over 1,200 locations back in Japan and local stores in both Torrance and Rowland Heights, is coming to Brentwood. CoCo will replace a shuttered Rubio's on Wilshire with its proprietary curries made with seventeen spices, available on cuts as wide-ranging as hamburger, sausage, spinach, clams, and Chinese dumplings, and customizable by size, heat level, and toppings like natto, squid, and fried chicken.
The chain is also known for its thin take on Indian-influenced keema curries, offered in variations involving omelets, as well as naan pizza, udon, and salads. Last week, we predicted a landslide of dish-specific Japanese imports coming our way this year, with this fast food giant the first new sighting of 2013. Check out the menu online and expect an opening sometime within the next month.
