Cafe Mundial Restaurant Review

: This charming little restaurant in Old Town Monrovia sets high culinary standards and achieves them. White tablecloths, fresh flowers, custom-designed chairs and hanging polished-steel sculptures of the sun, moon and earth create an artistic and even romantic ambience, marred only slightly by a high noise level. Mundial is a Spanish word meaning “of the world...no borders.” Appropriately, chef John Itomura’s menu is a tapestry of diverse international ingredients and flavors skillfully prepared and beautifully presented. Crab cakes in a mustard seed sauce and duck confit in a Merlot sauce are prime examples of the kitchen's ability. We strongly suggest leaving room for homemade desserts such as the warm apple tart topped with apple-cinnamon gelato.
