Diners can expect a culinary feast like no other as the two acclaimed chefs join forces to create a multi-course tasting menu that highlights their contemporary European culinary influences and shared passion for using high-quality seasonal produce.

“Johanne and I have known each other for a few years now and after a five-day culinary retreat at Shishi-Iwa House in Karuizawa, Japan last October, where we visited local farmers and food producers, and collaborated on a one-off menu, we decided we needed to do a collaboration and cook together once more. I am delighted to have her join me in the MONO kitchen to celebrate another year of great food with great people,” says Chef Chaneton.

Chef-Founder Ricardo Chaneton

“Being from the Philippines, I’ve always had a fascination with Latin American food since we share a lot of culinary ties and traditions. Even as chefs, Ricardo and I also have a very similar philosophy in terms of our European culinary training and creating produce-driven dishes. I’m looking forward to working with Ricardo on creating a special menu filled with delicious new creations that incorporate our roots and our journeys,” adds Chef Siy.

The exclusive collaboration menu will be available for lunch and dinner at MONO from February 7-8, priced at HK$1,688 (+10% service charge) for lunch and HK$2,980 (+10% service charge) for dinner, with limited seating available. Reservations can be made via the website or Whatsapp +852 9726 9301.
