Of all the Closed Door Restaurant options that have been springing up in Buenos Aires over the last couple years, Casa Mun has become one of the most popular and for good reason.

Casa Mun
serves Asian/California cuisine and is run by Chef Mun who studied under celebrity Chef Makota Okuwa (who has appeared 13 times on the Food Network’s hit television show, Iron Chef America) at his beloved Sashi in Manhattan Beach, California and received formal culinary training at the Sushi Chef Institute.

The Casa Mun experience features Japanese, Korean, Chinese and California cuisine including sushi, sashimi, dim sum, bibimbop and Korean BBQ paired with fine wine. The meal takes place around a grand dining table suited for 12 which allows the opportunity to socialize with the other guest and enjoy the great food together.

The following is a sample menu. The dining experience follows a 5 course tasting format with a different wine accompanying each dish:

Champagne Reception

Ponce Torres Extra Brut

Chinese Wonton Soup

Chef Mun’s signature soup with shrimp, chicken, water chestnuts, bok choi & wontons.

Rama Negra Sauvignon Blanc 2009

———————————————————–

Casa Mun usually only operates on Saturdays, so it is important to make a reservation a couple weeks in advance. If there is a high demand, Casa Mun will sometimes add another dinner on Friday night, but don’t expect this.

If you are looking for a great place to take a date or to take someone as a surprise, Casa Mun is a great choice. For example, I took my girlfriend here as a surprise for her birthday. It was definitely an amazing surprise for her, as she had no idea where we were going. As we entered the unmarked building where Casa Mun is located, we entered a hip, stylish “house” where we were greeted with Champagne by a hostess. As we drank our champagne and mingled with the other guests, my girlfriend still didn’t have any idea what the place was. It was only until we sat down at the table and were served our first meal did she realize what was going on. And then to top it off, we ate and drank 5 incredibly delicious dishes and wines!

Chef Mun changes his menu around each month, so expect something new each time you go. This is an incredibly unique dining experience in Buenos Aires and is highly recommended!!
