I was at the launch of Mono Coffee in Publika and I would like to share this exciting new coffee place. Mono Coffee is a third wave coffee shop that specifically designed to serve artisan coffee and creative cooking.
The Mono Coffee is part of Brandker Group that also owns Cosan Coffee. I went to the Grand Opening of the first outlet in Publika Shopping Centre. Mono Coffee not just offering hand-brewed authentic coffee but also western food from their creative kitchen.
Let’s first talk about their coffee. Mono Coffee has their own house-blend Monian coffee which mainly from Brazil Yellow Bourbon, Guatemala Antigua and Sumatra Lintong. I’ve tried their Hazelnut Latte and it was delicious. The coffee was smooth and aromatic. There’s a sweet ‘cherry’ scent too. For those who dislike super strong coffee, this is for you.
Oh yes, they do serve enticing desserts and cakes. However, Mono Coffee also wanted to serve a good delicious food that complement their coffee too. As for food, Mono Coffee mainly serve Western food that were created to complement their coffee.
Here I am reviewing three of their signature dishes.
Beef and Hashed Benedicts
This is great for full-filling breakfast or brunch. I’m glad that the the beef bacon are not too crisped as it may be too tough. This was cooked just right – just crisp yet tender. The accompanied hollandaise sauce is creamy yet a little tangy. This does not blew my mind a way
This sweet canapé consists of stacks of mini pancakes smeared with delicious peanut butter topped with crispy beef bacon. It is sweet, nutty yet slightly salty. The whole combination is pretty interesting. Great for quick perk me up afternoon tea or to be shared.
One thing I wish they could improve is a more soft and fluffy pancakes. The one that I had was too dry. Interesting flavors combo tough.
Pods and Chicken Salad
This is my favourite among the bunch. I have always been a Salad lover, this Pods and Chicken Salad is a beautiful creation from the chefs in Mono Coffee kitchen. Various poached beans which includes Edamame beans mixed with succulent tender chicken pieces was generously dressed before served in fresh lettuce bowl. I love how this salad is light, fresh and served slightly cold to maintain its freshness. The dressing is well balanced and the amount was just right. I hate over-drenched salad.
The prices of the menu are in the middle range. Mono Coffee offers a good alternative from your ‘usual’ coffee place and offers delicious food while you hang out.
