Nowadays great coffee places have been popping out everywhere and it's really hard to catch up with them. Therefore finding hidden gems among it is a very exciting experience for me especially since I will get to share it with you guys.
I was given their menu to choose one drink and I opted my usual Ice Caramel Latte. The coffee in Mono Coffee uses their in house blend called Monian premium brew. We were also shown a hand drip coffee demonstration from their barista. Their blend have a tasting notes of dried berries, bitter sweet cocoa and clean finishing with a bit of malty, nutty and roasted pecan fragrance. The house blend Monian consist of blends of the Brazil Yellow Bourbon, Guatamala Antigua and Sumatra Lintang. To me the coffee blend is really nice and tasted really good, a bit on the lighter side and not that kind of bitter and super strong coffee. I like it since it's different and if you don't like strong coffee this might be for you.

Moving on to their food, I was able to try three menu which are the Stack It, Pods and Chicken Salad and the Ultimate Sandwich. Unable to try the Beef & Hashed 'Benedict' (RM17) as the mini food platter served the Ultimate Sandwich instead.
|Pods and Chicken Salad (RM16)|
Out of three my favourite is definitely the Pods and Chicken Salad (RM16). It's so great and the flavour is well balanced with the lemon dressing. I bet the grilled chicken with chick peas, edamame beans, cannelini beans, french beans and feta cheese makes the salad healthy and full filling also if you eat it in full size portion. To be honest, it's actually not too much to say that if I were to comeback to Mono Cofee it would be because of this salad. I'm even craving for it now as I'm typing this post. The Ultimate Sandwich is quite good but nothing about it strikes it as special to me.
|Stack It (RM14)|
Unfortunately the Stack It (RM14) 'fluffy pancake with crispy beef bacon, maple peanut butter, butter syrup and roasted tomato' is not to my liking as it is a tad too dry and not fluffy at all. I was having quite a hard time to finish the mini size of it even when shared between three people. I don't know if it becomes too dry because it is made in mini size or it's really like that but in overall it was thick and too savoury to me.
They also have other range of menu like pasta which I didn't get the chance to try since I ended up leaving early but if you are a coffee junkie, you might want to check this place at least once for it's home blend coffee.
