Despite the fact that it’s still cumbersome to travel outside of Hong Kong (though at least now the quarantine period has been reduced to 7 days), we still are fortunate in Hong Kong to have the world travel to us, opening up restaurants that reflect cuisines from all over the map. Mono is a Latin American influenced restaurant from Chef Ricardo Chaneton. Chef Chaneton has worked with some of the finest chefs in the world, including Quique Dacosta (Spain), Mauro Colagreco at Mirazur (France), and Petrus in Hong Kong.
Mono is Chef Chaneton’s chance to express his South American roots (he’s from Venezuela) while using techniques he has learned from his rigorous French training. This past year Mono earned one Michelin star, and Chef Chaneton became the first Venezuelan chef ever to obtain that honor.
Below is a meal we enjoyed in 2021, right before Mono received the Michelin star. As you can see, Chef Chaneton clearly puts a lot of thought, heart, and soul into each dish.

What a unique journey to Latin America! Chef Chaneton’s is indeed breaking boundaries and introducing a whole new audience to the ingredients and flavors of South American, prepared in ways that are innovative, creative, and fun.
