General Manager and Executive Chef, El Gaucho Seattle

Chef Kirin Chun grew up in a family of cooks and began his culinary career at age 16 for restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, gaining experience and accolades along the way. He joined the El Gaucho Seattle team in 2014 as a pantry cook and was quickly promoted to Executive Sous Chef. In late 2017, Kirin was selected to join Miller’s Guild as the Chef de Cuisine and was shortly thereafter promoted to Executive Chef.  After three years working closely with chef Jason Wilson, Kirin came back to lead the El Gaucho Seattle culinary team as Executive Chef at the new Seattle Union Stables location. In 2023, he was promoted to General Manager.

Kirin stays on top of new cooking trends through a lot of Instagram, cookbooks, and going out to eat whenever possible. In his free time, Kirin enjoys working on cars and motorcycles, fixing anything, drawing and writing.
