La Mono, Merrylands

La Mono is packed full of the locals on the weekend who love their chicken.
La Mono is located among the suburbia of Merrylands. As you enter La Mono, it looks like a take away chicken shop but when you peer further in, there are white table cloth tables and other plastic tables in an outside seating area. There was a plastic rose inside a jar which changed the tune of the local chicken shop.

For an entree, I ordered the cheese sumbuisk ($7.50 for 3 pieces above) which is feta cheese and oregano wrapped in pastry and lightly fried. It was thoroughly cheesy and something naughty to start the meal.

Naturally I had to order some chicken which is what La Mono are known for. I ordered the half chicken with chips ($15, below), all dine in meals come with Lebanese bread, garlic sauce and pickles. I smear the garlic sauce on the Lebanese bread and add chicken and chips for a mini but delightful roll. The pickles and pink radish add a salty taste and replenish the palette after a hit of garlic.  The chicken was not as moist and tender as hoped but still tasty. The chicken definitely tasted marinated.

So overall, I enjoyed my experience at La Mono and can understand why it's so popular. I think the food is reasonably priced and easy to share. I'd love to come back to try some of the other dishes. La Mono is a nice casual eatery, nice for a simple family meal or a quick meal.
