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.

Just like a dinner party at a friend´s house, Chef Mun proves to be a charismatic and warm host, and cooks an amazing asian meal for all his guests. The ambiance is relaxed and international, and lends itself to mingle and meet new people. The food and wine pairings are well thought and deliscious, and the service, commandable. Highly recommended.
Thank you chef Mun!

Not traditional Argentinian food, but being fans of asian and korean cuisine we thought that Mun was an excellent chef, who was also fun to talk to and very charismatic. Not only was the food excellent, but it was fun chatting and drinking wine with people from all over the globe. HIGHLY recommended!!

We had a great time at Casa Mun! The food and wine was all delicious, but most of all we enjoyed how personal the experience was with the chef and how we got to meet people from all corners of the world.

This was our first "closed door" restaurant, and we loved it! The food was delicious, Mun was a very nice person, and we also met a lot of very nice people from all over the world. We recommend it.
