Locanda Mongro

Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

The name “Locanda Mong-ro” is combination of languages: “Locanda” is a kind a bistro that serves simple Mediterranean dishes and "Mong-ro" is Chinese characters that roughly means "dream road." Much like the name, the menu is also a fusion of culture. Owner and Head Chef Chan Il Park, one of Korea’s top Italian chefs uses traditional Italian cooking methods, but employes traditional Korean ingredients like tripe, steamed beef tendon, roe pasta, and roe fried chicken. He doesn't recommend any one menu item over the others, rather stating that every dish has its own uniqueness. Some of the more filling choices include dishes like Quarante Fettuccine, made with 40 egg yolks, and the wet aged Hanwoo (Korean beef) steak. Most of the dishes are fantastic sides for for a night of drinking. In keeping with their claim to be a “multinational pub,” Locanda Mongro carries an assortment of alcoholic beverages including beer, wine, single malt whisky, sake, and traditional Korean alcoholic beverages. Their wine list is also superb. Sommelier Lee Jaeho makes ideal selections to pair with your menu selections. Interestingly enough, for all their main course choices, there is only one dessert. But it's a dessert done right: a tiramisu made from an authentic Italian recipe, and trust us, you won't regret ordering it.
