Mini Monster and Poke Bar Will Open at Universal CityWalk!

Popular Casual Dining Concepts, Mini Monster and Poke Bar, Will Open at Universal CityWalk as Part of the Destination’s Ongoing Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

City Walk at Universal Studios Hollywood has always had wonderful options for entertainment, food and drink! Nikki and I personally love Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Bubba Gumps and Karl Strauss Brewing Company. We find ourselves frequenting the area because of the options, the entertainment and wonderful ambiance. When hearing that Universal will add world class options to it’s already incredible lineup, it makes us smile! City Walk is transforming before our eyes with new additions like the BRAND NEW Cinema’s, Voodoo Donuts, Menchi’s Frozen Yogurt and much more! They continue to solidify themselves at the entertainment capital of Los Angeles. Below you will read up on two new offerings coming to City Walk! Take a look and plan a date because it is going to be wonderful!

Universal CityWalk introduces two sweet and savory casual concepts, Mini Monster and Poke Bar, adding an all-new delicious dimension to the destination’s latest dining options that already include the popular Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Ludo Lefebvre’s LudoBird and Dong Po Kitchen.

Now open, Mini Monster is recognized as one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in Southern California and features a menu of small-batch flavorfully brewed teas and lemonades, served in California glass jars and specially-designed signature light bulbs. The specialty drinks come made to order with warm boba (black tapioca pearls) and whimsical clouds of spun-to-order cotton candy.

Opening in late-August, Poke Bar will serve up a fresh twist on Hawaiian cuisine with build-your-own poke bowls and will feature a customizable menu that includes a variety of seafood including ahi tuna, salmon and albacore, as well as vegetarian options paired with tasty ingredients that range from cucumber salad and crabmeat to seaweed salad and edamame.

The much anticipated arrival of Mini Monster and Poke Bar to Universal CityWalk coincides with the vibrant outdoor epicenter’s elaborate, multi-million dollar revitalization.

For over 20 years, CityWalk has boosted the city’s rhythm through a foundation built on providing memorable entertainment experiences.  With a series of dramatic enhancements underway, which include the introduction of new restaurants, shopping experiences, visually aesthetic design features and a state-of-the-art multi-million dollar Universal Cinema renovation, the spotlight shines brightly on CityWalk as one of L.A.’s most influential lifestyle centers.
