What I love about Rome is that there’s always somewhere new to discover – just when you think you know where all the best places are, you find another gem tucked along one of the city’s winding sidestreets!
I discovered Mons totally by chance – I was on my way for drinks and parked right next to it. Just looking through the windows I loved the quirky, cosy vibe of the place, and made a mental note to come back and eat later.
Mons is a burger joint and cocktail bar, right next to two of my other favourite spots – Etabli and Bar del Fico – and right in the centre of Rome. The decor is super funky, with low-lighting, graffiti and newspaper print all over the walls. The seats are comfy, tables are candlelit and there’s a couple of sofas available too if you just want to pop in for a quick drink.
I had the Terminator and it was delicious – medium rare, just how I like it, with cheese, bacon, lettuce and a side of chips. All this for just €9! I didn’t try the cocktails, but I had a beer – again, the price was reasonable, a large beer for €5. It’s not fancy, but if you’re looking for somewhere cosy for a meal with friends in the centre of Rome, Mons is just right!
