Run by Noma-trained chef Yoshihiro Imai, Monk is a unique restaurant situated on the peripheries of Philosophers Path. Its minimalist aesthetic of white walls, wooden tables and smooth surfaces is a gentle nod to Yoshihiro’s time spent training in Denmark. For an interactive dining experience, sit at the counter and enjoy insightful chatter about menu inspiration and produce sourcing. Savour each dish on the seven-course tasting menu – dinner peaks with the wood-fired pizza.
