In The Kitchen

Chef Sun Kim, Chef/Owner, leads Meta’s culinary team, featuring menus that showcase innovative and well-balanced dishes based on his Korean heritage, travels and culinary experiences.

Originally born in Busan, Korea, which is famous for its beaches and seafood, Chef Sun moved to Seoul at a young age where he was exposed to the F&B business. His mother was a restaurateur and this early experience cultivated his love for food.

His role as chef is a culmination of a decade of experience, starting from working at Italian restaurants, and French culinary training in Sydney. He also cites time learning Japanese techniques under a Japanese chef, which was essential to shaping how he now helms the kitchen at Meta.

Marrying his Korean heritage, Japanese culinary touches, and Western culinary training, Meta is exemplary of Chef Sun’s East-meets-West philosophy, incorporating a myriad of seasonal produce and indigenous ingredients. In 2017, the team received their first Michelin star and retained their star in 2018 and 2019.

In 2021, Meta was named as the “American Express One To Watch” as part of Asia’s 50 Best restaurant and in 2022 gained a ranking of 20th Best Restaurant in Asia.
