Korean fried chicken arrives in Bangkok via New York.
When in New York, three friends took a liking to the Korean-style chicken of a place called Mono+Mono, currently closed after a fire last year. Fear not, here comes Mono+Mono BKK, promising the same recipes plus some new ones for the Thai palate. The star attraction is the fried chicken set. They also do another dish currently in-vogue, gua bao (steamed bun), in varieties like pork belly and soft shell crab.
Mono+Mono arrived in Bangkok late last year surrounded by hype. This was largely due to the name, which comes from a hugely popular Korean-style fried chicken restaurant in New York’s East Village that burned down in 2013. True to those roots, Mono+Mono Bangkok has a distinctly New York City vibe, with tables made from black metal piping, Tolix chairs and the obligatory subway tiles, as well as plenty of air plants and medicine bottles. It all comes together nicely but is a bit boring and uncreative, much like the menu.
