The mighty-yet-little Monkey King at The Brewery whips out chicken wings, boneless chicken, noodles, fried rice, and kim chi like nobody’s business with a touch of Creole flair tossed in. The resulting one-of-a-kind Asian fusion menu and an edgy attitude attract a diverse crowd. In other words, this is nothing like your grandmother’s Alameda. The shotgun-style fast-casual eatery boasts black walls brightened up with graffiti/anime tags and wild stickers plus accents of bright orange. You order at the counter, get a number, and then nab a seat—preferably on the broad-bricked entryway patio that also fronts Alameda Island Brewing Company. This pub-oriented grub makes the perfect accompaniment to soaking up the brewery’s American pale ales, IPAs, Scotch ales, Hefeweizens, double IPAs, pilsners, stouts, and what-have-yous you’re sure to fall for. Open for lunch and dinner Tue.-Sun.
