Monon Food Company pleases palates with a menu of gourmet tacos, weekend brunch fare, and craft beers worth uncapping. During afternoon and evening meals, the tilapia taco plate surrounds fresh fish with chopped pico de gallo, chipotle mayo, and shredded cabbage. The Moroccan-spice-marinated Mofoco pork tacos give mouths a tragically temporary new best friend dressed in caramelized onion and white cumin-lime sauce. Veggie tacos fill bellies with tortilla-encased portobello mushrooms, roasted red peppers, red onion, pesto cream cheese, and sour cream. Monon celebrates the phenomenon of strangely recurring weekends with brunch specialties such as grilled texas toast battered with vanilla custard and cinnamon or the hefty salmon omelet with spinach, tomato, and pesto cream cheese.
Guests can toast to the imagined virtues of an unsuspecting stranger with craft beers such as Dogfish Head's potent Raison D’Être—a mahogany ale fermented with beet sugars and green raisins—or the hoppy, botanically bountiful Dragonfly IPA from Upland Brewing Co. As diners sip on brews, their eyes can scan interior artwork provided by local artists, or peer out over the restaurant's wraparound porch, which overlooks scenic Monon trail.
Monon Food Company
The rotisserie oven at Monon Food Company is kept busy all day, slow-cooking and smoking the slabs of meat that will go into barbecue rib and pulled-pork dishes. Rather than with a deep fryer and hydrogenated oils, the culinary team cooks its health-conscious dishes in extra-virgin olive oil before topping them off with homemade sauces, salsas, and dressings made from in-house recipes. Together, those elements make for the 10-ounce slice of grilled Cajun meatloaf and gourmet tacos topped with ingredients including pesto cream cheese, pineapple-mango salsa, and spiced buffalo chicken. To wash down meals, barkeeps decant more than 60 beers and ales including new releases, limited releases, and pent-up-anger releases from local and national breweries. Feasts unfold in a spacious, hardwood-floored dining room adorned with work from local artists or from a wrap-around porch overlooking the Monon Trail.
