Description

Summary: A Latin-inspired tasting menu.

Mono, located in Hong Kong, is a cozy venue that presents an intimate atmosphere with just 30 seats. Chef Ricardo Chaneton offers an eclectic tasting menu inspired by his Colombian, Argentinian, and Italian heritage. The restaurant's unique dishes include King crab with caviar and coeur de boeuf with fresh hazelnut, all deeply rooted in Latin American tradition. Mono's signature mole sauce has been a defining feature since its inception. For dessert, guests can indulge in homemade chocolate, crafted from scratch and presented as a sampling journey from cacao pulp to bonbons. The music, selected from Chaneton’s father's vinyl collection, adds to the restaurant’s homely vibe. Each dish at Mono is a testament to Chaneton's creative passion and the vibrancy of Latin American culture, with standout offerings like Danish langoustine paired with fermented Ecuadorian cacao in a dense shrimp stock, and an 18-ingredient green mole that balances aromas, heat, and acidity.
