Christian G. Mongendre
Founder & CEO
Christian G. Mongendre is widely recognised as one of the visionaries behind the plant-based movement in Hong Kong. The French American national has a double degree from Paul Bocuse Institute, with a double major in Culinary Arts and International Hotel & Restaurant Management. Before returning to Hong Kong, his birthplace, Mongendre worked for Michelin three-star Chef Alain Ducasse. Once here, he founded and opened a number of plant-themed restaurants from Hong Kong to Lisbon such as Mana!, HOME – Eat to Live, Juicy Lisboa and TREEHOUSE.
Mongendre’s strong beliefs when it comes to healthy food stem from his mother’s struggle with cancer and subsequent efforts to enhance his performance as a competitive rower. While experimenting with a plant-based diet, successful results enabled Mongendre to realise that “healthy food not only supports a better life but must also fuel the heart”.
With this belief in mind, Christian continues to spearhead the evolving plant-based movement in Hong Kong. “It is our responsibility as restaurant owners to serve the highest quality nutritious food to people,” says Mongendre. His latest endeavour TREEHOUSE is a nourishing environment to reacquaint the people of Hong Kong through the nature of food in an innovative environment.
TreeHouse is a wholesome flagship destination located in the heart of Central, TREEHOUSE is a glowing destination that’s a nod to the green movement with a taste of the future. This technology and chef-driven enterprise aim to remind the people of Hong Kong and beyond that, we are “One with Nature”. Through its organic plant-based menu that stimulates the senses, you’ll see the wholesome future of dining: sustainable, ethical, modern and fast.
With TREEHOUSE, Christian G. Mongendre hopes to re-ignite the connection to who we are and where we come from by revealing the nature of life and showing us the way forward. It’s a refreshing introduction to the future of dining with features such as lead-free eco-cement, reclaimed wood, recycled plastic, composting as well as seasonal certified organic, nutritious produce and more. This holistic approach can conveniently be found in one location instilling envious cravings for more while made to order and ready within minutes to take-away.
