Worst New Awards 2010

It's that time of year where the media releases it's "Best Of" roundups. The Globe had a really nice one, highlighting standout dishes of the freshman class.

So I wanted to do the opposite, even if it's a bit rude. Yesterday I walked past the new Bon Chon in Allston, and looked at the menu, where I saw this:

Sweet Hummus Maki
"Hummus with Sweet Potato, Cucumber and Sweet Unagi Sauce"

To top it off, it was an inside-out roll. AND it was at the top of the list, the headliner! I'm pretty sure you couldn't make it worse even if you threw Tobiko on top and deep-fried it. I got queasy just standing there thinking that is the worst sushi roll ever. I don't think Bon Chon is a bad place and everyone loves the chicken, but wowzers, stick to what you know!

Anyone else with equally bad jive-ass rolls or other horrible new dishes for 2010? Keep in mind, new for this year only.
