Burger or Mussels at Monks

  • 4

Going to Monks tomorrow. Never had their food and was hopeful that someone could tell me what the better option is? Thanks.

  1. Mussels. Hands down - no question. My fave is the Thai Curry style - ask them to spice it up a bit, but they're all fabulous. If you are a big eater or are with a dining companion that doesn't mind sharing plates, you can start with their duck salad, and you will have perfection, my friend...

      Great! Thank you for the recommendations. How are the Pomme Frites?

        mussels for sure. i feel like there's no competition. and it's a total deal since you get the terrific bread and fries along with it

      2. Mussel!!!, but I have a hard time deciding which flavor
