  1. Background
  2. Reviews

Born and raised in California, I've been surrounded by good food all of my life. My obsession with food started at the young age of three when I became addicted to watching reruns of Julia Child.

I attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in the Napa Valley, where I honed my skills and began to turn my passion into a career.

I got my start at the very popular Tender Greens, where I learned the art of making the perfect salad. I worked in several restaurants in Southern and Northern California, exposing myself to a variety of cuisines. Through traveling and experiencing the rich culinary diversity of San Francisco, I have learned that my passion is cooking in a Mediterranean stye with a California flare. I am also inspired by the complexity that comes with playing with different spices from around the world.

In 2010, I met my mentor, Bridget Batson (also a Munchery chef) while working at Gitane. Under her guidance, she helped me become the chef I am today. She taught me the art of simplicity and the importance of using seasonal and local ingredients. I then moved on to their newly-opened sister restaurant, Claudine, where I eventually worked my way up to becoming the executive chef.

Now, I am excited to be at Munchery where I can showcase my passion for cooking and blending unique flavors to create amazing meals for you.

2.5 year old loved the noodles and even asked for seconds after eating the entire servjnf. Not a fan of the (very bland) broccoli.

The pasta was a little mushy and the sauce was orange and a scant amount of it. My son took a bite and then we made him a quesadilla. Probably won't order this one again.

I eat rare or raw tuna often, and this was some of the worst. Very fishy. I would not call this sashimi quality. It probably needed to be cooked through to be safe.

Salad good if not great; BEAUTIFUL piece of fish.

The portion was merely appetizer size. Also, too much dressing on the two bites is salad. The stew looked nothing like the photo in the description.

My daughter wouldn't touch the meat. It was mushy and odd-colored. Also please include more cheese. A teaspoon isn't enough for kids.

The first time we ordered this we got a really good BBQ sauce (not the Apple cider) my daughter licked the container. Now this dish comes with this apple cider that is too sour and she keeps asking for the BBQ sauce how do I get that BBQ sauce back?

I agree with the other most recent reviews, burger was so overcooked it shriveled up and bowed in the middle. Perhaps the chef was overcompensating for other reviewers who complained it was too rare? Anyway, a disappointment.

Burger extremely overcooked, did not like the aioli or the kale toppings either. Also, everything is cold if you only heat it for the time suggested. It needed to be heated a lot longer.

1 star for packaging. Big handful of lettuce is thrown on top of very small meat portion-to hard to pick out all lettuce before heating, so you end up w/ beef & wilted lettuce! Put the rice & beans in meat side of container, & lettuce on other side.

You should include more potato wedges. Meat is a bit too chewy.

Meat too spicy for the kids and it was all mixed up with the lettuce, hard to heat up without getting wilty lettuce.

Chicken stringy and unappetizing

Compared to your normal (very high, 4.5/5 stars) freshness, the burger was underwhelming. The bun was stale and the meat was slightly above a-ok. Again, it was only passable cause normally your standard is very high which I always appreciate.

The last time I ordered this, there was about twice as much in here than this time.

I'm pretty sure I got a cup of salsa and not marinara sauce with this.
