Earlier this year I wrote about an interesting restaurant concept – one dish menu restaurant or so cold mono restaurant "L'Entrecot" in France. There's only one dish in the menu, but they do it so good, that people flood the place twice a day, in lunch and dinner time. This interesting business idea inspired me and I started to search for similar restaurant in other countries. I was surprised to find out that there are a lot of them all over the world! And here's a top 5 of the most popular mono restaurants: 1. Cha Ca La Vong, Hanoi, Vietnam Serves: grilled fish - $9 for portion "Cha ca" is a favourite dish of Hanoian. Located in Cha Ca street, Cha ca La Vong ("cha ca" means grilled fish) is the famous restaurant to many Hanoian as well as visitors from all over the world. The food is supposed to have been created by the Doan family. According to Mrs. Ngo Thi Tinh (a descendant of the 4th generation of the family), the family started the business of selling "cha ca" to earn money to support the family members and to have a meeting place for the Vietnamese people who wanted to fight against French colonialism. The family food became a speciality of Hanoian people. 2. Lawry's the Prime Rib, LA, USA Serves: prime ribs – average bill is $30 Lawry's the Prime Rib is an internationally renowned American prime rib restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs come in four different "cuts" – The Lawry Cut is the original cut, The California Cut is a smaller cut for lighter appetites, The English Cut is thin slices deftly carved to heighten the rich beef flavor and The Diamond Jim Brady Cut is an extra-thick portion for beef lovers. All kinds of Roasted Prime Rib can be served with mashed potatoes, creamed corn, creamed spinach and buttered peas. It is then capped off with the oven baked Yorkshire Pudding, the perfect accompaniment to Prime Rib. 3. Kyushu Jyangara Ramen Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan Serves: ramen - $11 for portion Kyushu Jangara Ramen is a Hakata ramen chain restaurant that boasts five franchises within the city, offering quintessential Hakata ramen--tonkotsu (pork bone) soup and extra-thin noodles. You can choose combinations of several types of soup and toppings. The soups include the basic and simple "Jangara," the fatty "Bonshan," the median between the two extremes, "Kobonshan," as well as the spicy "Karabon." You can get refills on noodles if you call for "Kae-dama," but keep in mind that you won't get more soup. 4. Chez rotisseur, Marrakech, Morocco Serves: oven baked lamb's head - $10 for portion Djemaa el-Fna is called "a showcase of traditional Morocco". Here you can taste the best dishes of national cuisine. Every evening thousands of tourists and locals come here to can try lamb brains, Tajin in different variations, couscous and other culinary symbols of the Maghreb. However, the favorite restaurant of local residents are not at the epicentre of tourist life, but a bit further - at the entrance to the medina. For more than a hundred years an obscure street hosts a mono restaurant that serves only oven baked lamb's head, a favourite dish of Berbers. 5. Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei, Singapore Serves: laksa soup - $4 for portion The famous laksa soup (coconut milk curry gravy) here is served in a hot claypot and each bowl is prepared individually upon ordering. Served with noodles, rice or bread, each helping is choc-a-bloc with vegetables, beancurd and a tantalising coconut milk-based gravy that consists of over 20 ingredients. Madam Ang, who created this guarded recipe, is still at the stall dishing out this famous dish.
