This open-kitchen eatery on the ground floor of the Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok is styled after popular neighbourhood salumerias (delis) and formaggerias (cheese shops) found on street corners throughout Italy. With its soft mood lighting and mixture of cosy high and low seating, Mondo is a laid-back but quietly elegant venue. The wide-ranging menu features tapas dishes with influences from all over the world but with a marked focus on the Mediterranean and Asia.The food here is bite-sized and meant to be shared, making it a perfect destination for diners looking for upscale variety.
Hot starters range from classics like fried calamari with tartar sauce (B90) to the more adventurous rock island lobster fritters with burrata cheese aioli (B200). Cold tidbits include salmon tartar with horseradish dressing (B200) and avocado guacamole, king crab salad and tangy cocktail sauce (B200). On the ‘East Meets West’ fusion section of the menu, stand-outs include the mini wagyu burgers with aioli sambal (B150), juicy bite-sized sliders cooked to perfection, along with oven-baked oysters prepared with a spicy Matsuhisa sauce (B90).
Those looking for comfort food might appreciate everyday favourites like Caesar salad (B280 or B320 with Cajun chicken), the Hilton club sandwich (B290) and pad thai (B320). The deli menu also showcases Mondo’s focus on quality ingredients – it’s known as ‘La Salumeria’ and is one of the highlights of dining here. Start with 30g servings of delectable meats like chorizo cular iberico (B90), a Spanish sweet and spicy pork sausage, before moving on to parma ham riserva legato (B150). High-end deli platters include culatello di zibello (B300), a cured pork ham with a sweet, rich flavour, and patanegra de cebo (B300), a top-quality Spanish-cured pork ham.
There is also an excellent cheese menu, called ‘I Formaggi’ – a godsend for those with serious cheese cravings. Check out the platter selections featuring a choice of four to eight different cheeses and cold cuts, costing from B700 to B1500. Desserts here are distinctly European, with a delicious pistachio eclair (B80), Verbena panna cotta (B90) and chocolate cappuccino yogurt and coffee jelly (B80) among the best choices.
