Cocina Sunae in Buenos Aires

The final photo-centric supplement to my BBC Travel story on Buenos Aires closed-door restaurants is here, and the featured puerta cerrada is Cocina Sunae.

Chef Mun served his first dinner in March, and has been filling his Saturday evening reservations since then. I have so far been twice and have plans to return this coming Saturday to indulge in Mun’s perfected Asian fusion cuisine. (Yes, it’s that good.) Below are photos from my first two meals at Casa Mun.   –Karina

Closed-Door Restaurants in Buenos Aires

Last Friday my BBC Travel article International cuisine in Buenos Aires’ puerta cerradas came out. For the piece, I had the can-you-even-call-this-work task of attending each of the four closed-door restaurants I featured and chatting with some of the best chefs in town. I excerpted the introduction below, and soon I will be posting photographs from each of my meals (a course will not be missed!) at the four closed-door spots. Featured Restaurants Casa Mun + Casa Mun TKGO post Casa […]
