Mon Jin Lau Restaurant Review

: Mon Jin Lau is a contemporary restaurant fusing global tastes from countries such as Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand. Some of its original Chinese-American dishes are still on the menu, but most diners order from the updated list typified by Singapore noodles, a toss of angel hair pasta with shrimp, red peppers, curry and chili peppers; Chilean sea bass steamed in a banana leaf; and Mongolian rack of lamb. We also like the spicy Korean pork chop with Asian vegetables. Sushi is very fresh. Desserts look to Europe, with a pastry tray filled with confections, crème brûlée and whipped cream-lavished tortes. The extensive wine list is offset by a respectable selection of cocktails (try the Cane Mojito) and brews including Asahi, Sapporo, Tsingtao and Hitachino White Ale. The setting is attractive with three distinct seating areas: a dining room featuring lustrous murals resembling giant Chinese screens in bronze, green and gold; the central cocktail lounge and sushi bar; and an airy garden room with French door-style windows, tropical greenery and modern art.
