Monmouth Kitchen

Along a cobbled road in the heart of Covent Garden (Seven Dials) we hurriedly walked.  The rains pathetic attempts to dampen our spirits failing.  The wind lashing feebly, trying to blow us off course.  Our minds determined, our stomachs rumbling we walked up the road with the namesake of the restaurant we were slowly edging towards or so we thought.  As luck would have it we arrived at the wrong end of the road (near Rossopomodoro), there were two parts split by the seven dials roundabout.  Now with our mindset focused and complete confidence in which building we were gravitating towards (confirmed by google) our pace quickened and excitement rapidly arose within.  Success “Monmouth Kitchen” stood before us and we eagerly pushed open the doors and stumbled into the dry, welcoming entrance.  Greeted warmly and led to our tables, the lovely Lara a fountain of knowledge in relation to the menu in its entirety set to work explaining, describing and recommending.

The dining area was sophisticated with a trendy vibe.  The clientele varied from those on dates, business meals to friends catching up.

Our order decide we talked and observed fellow diners as they chatted, drank and ate, our attention seized immediately when new dishes were delivered to neighbouring tables.  Drinks arrived quickly, a grateful treat to parched mouths.  A glass of white wine was enjoyed by one, the other indulged in a carefully presented

Batiida Tropicalada

Abelha Cachaca, coconut milk, condensed milk, guava, mango and lime.

The tropical flavour transports the mind of holidays past, of tropical heat and crystal clears seas.  Guava and mango dominate in the battle for flavour supremacy.  Soon enough it’s gone, all that is left is a drained vessel and distant memories.

The food in miniature begins to appear, plates bring with them the flavours of the Mediterranean and South America.  Three plates a person is recommend.

Salmon Tacos with Jalapeno Sauce

 Tiny bites combing crisp and creamy textures bring a punch of flavours, gone too soon, if only there were more.

Artichoke and Goats Cheese Salad with Lemon and Parsley Dressing

Fresh, creamy, crunchy, tangy, peppery flavours and textures with each fork.  Each mouthful as much a delight as the next.

Burrata Pugliese with Baby Basil and San Marzano Tomatoes

Such fresh and creamy deliciousness with a mild tang can only indicate a superior quality of product.  Cheese, fruit and herb united to create a dish true to its origin.

Calamari with Aji Panca Mayo

Soft and tender with a crisp a gently seasoned coating.  Paired perfectly with the Aji Panca Mayo that quietly conceals a slight chilli kick it is clear to see why the calamari is very popular – numerous portions arrived at surrounding tables.

Lamb and Taleggio Sliders with Truffle Mayo

Adorable burgers, tiny in appearance yet concealing enormous flavour.  Succulent and perfect in their design externally and internally hiding a pink centre.

Lobster Ceviche

As beautiful in flavour as in appearance the freshness shines through.  A prime example of salad perfection with its light yet tangy Mediterranean lemon and olive oil dressing.

Inca Punch

BarSol Italia pisco, pineapple, lime and sugar with an absinthe mist (left).

Another fruity and sweet masterpiece unique to Monmouth Restaurant.  Creativity and experience produce a sublimely refreshing liquid refreshment.


Our Bellini

White peach and rhubarb cordial with prosecco (right).

Fresh and fruity and a great twist to a classic, simple yet sophisticated.

Café Almendra

Coffee brûlée, chocolate cacao, almond ice cream and mascarpone amaretto crème.

Heaven in an espresso cup doesn’t come close to describing the superb creation that sat before us.  The only drawback the size leaves you longing for more.  Crunchy, creamy, silky, melting in the mouth such a dessert only helps us appreciate the simple pleasures in life.

Chocolate Caliente

Warm Peruvian chocolate spring rolls served with fresh passion fruit and coconut sorbet.

Warm chocolate encased within a crispy, light, thin crunchy filo, each tastes fantastic but pair it with the most dreamy sweet coconut sorbet and contrasting tangy, crunchy passion fruit the result is a mini taste bud fiesta.

With vibrant colours, contrasting textures and amazing flavours what’s not to love at Monmouth Kitchen.  Each dish takes centre stage there is no space for runners up.  The chefs at the Monmouth Kitchen are masters in their trade.

With that in mind I would like to remind those located nearby that there is a fabulous foodie event on Saturday the 10th of June where you can try the delicious tacos from Monmouth Kitchen and also foods from other local restaurants including the signature belly ribs from Hawksmoor (follow the link for more details).  The event is free to attend and you simply need to visit Sevendials.co.uk to register for your FREE ticket.
