The Mon

This place was recommended by a fellow foodie in Hong Kong (@jasonbonvivant). Came here for lunch with a friend, and we ordered their tamagoyaki (sweet egg) which was their signature dish, grilled ox tongue and pork with onions skewers, and crab croquette.

The tamagoyaki with crab was absolutely fantastic! It was served uncut – a thick slab of egg. You could taste the crab within the egg, it was creamy and deliciously sweet but not sickening. It was truly their signature dish.

If you look closer, the tamagoyaki was engraved ‘The Mon’.

We each at a serve (one skewer!!!!) of ox tongue and teriyaki pork with onions. The ox tongue was grilled, and the texture was fantastic. It was tender and juicy, a little on the salty side for me but it was still pretty good. The teriyaki pork was also tasty and tender. My only gripe is that it’s a small serving! I mean 1 serve is just one skewer? You would think 2 right?

Last but not least, the crab croquette, filled with potatoes and crab, these little croquettes were deep fried. Can be eaten alone or with a dollop of mayonnaise, served with a side of greens.

We were both pretty content and really enjoyed the Mon. Would highly recommend making a reservation. I have tried coming here for dinner again, but was sent away as it was fully booked.
