  2. Reviews

Chef Marco Lemus was born in Guatemala and always had an interest in cooking professionally. At first, not being able to see much future in it in his homeland, he decided to spend time studying engineering. After coming to the United States, he quickly realized that cooking was once again a possibility and returned to his first passion of food. Like many aspiring young cooks, he started at the bottom as a dishwasher and moved up the kitchen ladder, working every station from prep cook to eventually lead sous chef. His resumé includes noteworthy LA establishments such as the Porta Via, a classic Italian Bistro, The Shangri-la Hotel in Santa Monica, and the Standard Hotel downtown. He's very excited to have joined the Munchery team where he can contribute years of high-end professional experience as well as a few things he considers favorites from his native country.

Thanks...I hope you like the new coming dishes as well...
Unlike Mexican Ceviche's overwhelming sour from the citrus (which we still like) this dish had a much better balance between the sour and sweet -- more like a gazpacho ceviche which is the best of both worlds. Please make this available regularly.

Very good. Love Arugula salad. Smoked chicken was very tasty. Wish I had more of those almonds - yummy. Will def order again.

Thanks.... I am super happy to read your review...... I promise to keep working hard to give you the best dishes in your vida.
the smoke flavor of the chicken was a little one note and other than that lacked seasoning and was bland. pickled fennel was a nice addition and the vinaigrette was good, but overall, just a boring salad.

Shrimps and scallops were good and generous but the base was too sweet for my liking, like a mango type salsa. Also there wasn't a heat kick even though item was listed as spicy.

I will take into consideration adding extra dressing..... thank you for your review.
It needed a it more Arugula so I added that. It would be great to have the grapes cut in 2. Otherwise great flavor and enjoyed it..

The ingredients were super fresh. The salad turned out was too sour from dressing and marinated fennel.

While this salad was tasteful and the chicken provided more flavored than aticpiated, The arugula was sparse, unfulfilling.

Pickled fennel was good in the salad. Could use more greens, otherwise, the salad was good
