Sisig, Kare-Kare, and other all-time favorite Filipino food are on the menu of Cantina Sunae, a Southeast Asian Restaurant in Argentina run by Korean – American chef Christina Sunae.
The restaurant offers various delicious dishes from the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia and is known for respecting traditional techniques.

Although born to a Korean mother and American father, Chef Christina declares she is “Pinoy-at-heart” after visiting the Philippines many times. Her stepmother is a Filipina.
“Our chef brings to the table a menu based on flavors and memories that accompany her since her childhood and the experiences of her continuous travels in Asia,” says Chef Christina’s website.
Cantina Sunae is open from Monday to Thursday from 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m.
