What Is Monkey Brain Sushi?

Monkey Brain Sushi is a unique dish popular in Hong Kong and Southeast Asian countries, typically made with raw monkey brains served inside a hollowed-out monkey skull. It is a traditional dish in Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisine and an example of exotic or extreme cuisine. It is generally made from the brain of an endangered species known as the Interlocutor Monkey, or Simias concolor, and is served raw alongside sauces and vegetables.

It is considered a delicacy not only for its exotic or extreme status, but its unique and intense flavor as well.
