Situated inside The Gaia Hotel Bandung, Monomono Bar & Social Dining restaurant has become a dining destination favoured by locals and hotel guests alike since it opened last December. Serving the less familiarJapanese Peruvian menu called Nikkei cuisine, and Argentinian Grill, Monomono’s quick rise in popularity took even the skeptics by surprise. Now with the opening of Monomono Now Bar on the second floor, there is one more reason to choose Monomono for a wonderful evening out.
Monomono Now Bar rises above The Gaia Hotel’s Infinity Pool.
Start the night with dinner at the restaurant which also serves a wide range of wines to complement its Nikkei cuisine and Argentinian Grill menu. Order a few appetizers and main courses for sharing to enjoy the most of Monomono’s eclectic offerings. Its Classico Ceviche makes a perfect opening dish with its refreshing lightness. Raw fish cooked in citrus juices from lime and yuzu served in Leche de Tigre or Tiger’s Milk, it feels like a walk through an orange orchard, bright and delightful. Other highly recommended items are expertly sliced beef appetizer Carne Tenderloin and Anticuchos which is yakitori.
Nikkei Style Monomono restaurant exudes a cozy ambience, perfect for social dining and drinks.
Moving on to main courses, Argentinian Asado Grill is Monomono’s specialty with a wide variety of meat cuts of US Prime or Australian beef and lamb. For non-beef options, there is Peruvian Arroz Con Pato, duck confit served over coriander rice or the ever-popular Salmon Al Miso. Every Friday night to Saturday afternoon, there is Asado Lamb, or Cordero de Asado. Using a timeless Argentinian technique, a whole lamb is grilled slowly on open fire over wood and natural coal for 7 hours.
