Menu for Today, March 29

  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.

Portion is rather small. The tortellini and sauce tasted good according to my kids. The portion is more suitable for younger children but my 8 year old was still hungry. The carrots were bland, hard and had no seasoning.

Didn't care for the cornbread. Slaw was too spicy hot. Wish stew had more sweet potato in it. May try this again.

The stew was flavorful & hearty. Nice portion size. The slaw was nice bit a little to much dressing for my taste. The cornbread was thick & tasty, not to sweet @ went perfect with the honey butter. Got 2 servings out of this

The pasta came with 15 or so noodles and some sauce. It wouldn't satisfy a hungry toddler. For my big kids it was wayyyy too little -- I had to cook a box of pasta. Carrot slaw is always a waste. This one is off the rotation.

Cornbread was truly awful. Oily and chewy. Stew wasn't bad.

My picky 3 and 8 year old kids liked them. I tried one broccoli and a piece of chicken, yum! The sauce is very flavorful. Apple butter is basically apple sauce. Bread was good too.

The meat was red, and that for a kids meal. Threw it away.... :(

Broccoli overcooked

By Andy Salmon
The sauce is really tasty. It was delicious. The only downside is that having a burger which is cooked ahead of time isn't anywhere near as good as a freshly cooked burger.

No heat / spice in the peppers, the chipotle was more watery than aioli consistency

This is a great Veggie and Indian idea . Tastes great. Keep samosa and other Indian food coming ! How about some Dal. The lentil soup on the menu not good- just does not not blend with sweet yam potato!

Needed more spice, not necessarily heat, but spice.

There were no black beans. It seemed to be a lentil soup which we didn't like, an my daughter would not even eat

The hamburger arrived already extremely well done, meaning that if I warmed it up it would essentially be barely edible. It also had quite a bland taste. There were only six little potato wedges. And a processed cheese slice, really?

Delicious (as always) but only came with two taco shells. So, a small portion.

Would be five stars, bu the peas were so shriveled my daughter (who will scarf down plump, juicy peas) wouldn't eat them. The rest was great!
