  1. Background
  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.

I love this yogurt parfait. The is sweet and tangy, with a hint of maple. The yogurt in all the parfaits is rich and creamy. I split it into two servings, breakfast as a snack. It’s perfect!

Too little things. Trader Joe's sell nice portion with better taste for under 5 dollars

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.

Thanks...I hope you like the new coming dishes as well...
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..

Chicken, grapes were good. Did not see any fennel which was disappointing but once again, the lettuce was wilted and not edible. Perhaps just not our week for salads w/munchery....

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

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

The smokiness really comes through in a good way. The grapes add a needed sweetness. I'd like to see it with a sweeter dressing.

Bland.

By Rachel Sarnowski
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.

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

Thank you, I will talk with my team about your recommendation... :)
Overall was good but about 1/3 of the chicken chunks had grissle (sp) or something that made them unedible. Threw a lot out. Won’t order again.
