Like the rest of the world, Filipinos have a profound fascination with Korean culture. It could well be attributed to our constant exposure to their music, fashion, soap operas, and everything that catches our fancy from cute to cultural. But their cuisines definitely won our hearts.
Experience a food sojourn to the Land of the Morning Calm as Manila Hotel’s Café Ilang-Ilang puts the spotlight on the wonderful flavors of Korean cuisine from September 24 to September 30, 2011.
Savor the rich taste of Korean cuisine as Manila Hotel’s Head Korean Chef Jin Seok Heo takes you on a gastronomic journey to his homeland with authentic Korean dishes. Korean cuisine is largely based on varied selections of vegetables, meats, tofu, rice, and noodles, and is rapidly becoming popular to the Filipino palate. The festival will feature traditional and modern delicacies such as kimchi, doraji (white Chinese bellflower), japchae (sweet potato noodles), bulgogi (barbecued beef), galbi (grilled beef), bossam (pork belly), dwenjang (seafood soup), drinks like misutgaru (rice juice), and a selection of refreshing desserts.
The opening of the festival on September 24 will feature cultural and traditional Korean dances that will bring guests back to the days of lavish royal festivities and celebrations. Diners will also get a chance to win roundtrip tickets to South Korea from Jeju Air, Puning Day Tour for four, and hotel accommodations from Hana Tours.
