“An incredible culinary experience -- passion you can taste in every bite!”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

I've had the absolute pleasure of dining with Chef Mun about 6 times, and it's not enough. Every dish is a well orchestrated blend of flavors and textures fusing Asian favorites with Argentine classics. One bite of the lomo on top of wasabi mashed potatoes w/ a soy-malbec reduction will make you understand why the foodie world is richer for Mun’s choice to leave the financial world behind. From a food fan and, more importantly, a friend, thank you for bringing a new level of quality, spiciness, and style to the BsAs scene! Best of luck to you in Mendoza!

“Spice your life up in Buenos Aires!”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Okay, it was a pop up event as Chef Mun has moved to Mendoza (there will be a review of his new restaurant at the Bodega Casarena soon!). Setting aside the cocktail style of service at this particular event, the Korean chef knows how to create moreish appetizers and induce the addictive gene in all of us... The spices, the herbs, the meats, the seafood - all stay happy together on the palate and in the tummy! Thank you Chef Mun!

“Wow...a foodie worldwide adventure from a dining table in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

If you like to eat - then you will love Casa Mun. My wife and I were on vacation in Buenos Aires and we're invited to Casa Mun by some local work friends. The experience was one of a kind and it was probably one of the best meals we've ever had.

The Chef is Mun who if I remember the story correctly, was an investment banker in NYC who got hit by the 2008-2009 crisis and called it quits. He started to travel the world for inspiration on his next adventure and decided to become chef and landed in Buenos Aires. Casa Mun restaurant ala Ghetto Gourmet from SF a couple of years back.

We paid for the 5-6 course dinner paired with wine/sake/etc. It was delicious, Mun explained all the dishes and his inspiration for them, including a cold chicken soup that I could eat all day. All the dishes were very different and had an international flare, but came together to deliver a punch and leave a great impression.

If you're ever in Buenos Aires, I highly recommend that you make a reservation at Casa Mun. I don't think I can describe how amazing it is. There's lot's of international folks and its a great place to meet people too.
