Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria will be an insider’s food guide to Korea by letting guests enjoy the fascinating dining culture of Gangnam at Seven Corners from now until January 19.
In partnership with Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas, InterContinental Seoul COEX and Korea Agro Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation, four award winning Korean guest chefs and a mixologist—Kim Hyung Gyun, Yoon Taekoo, Kang Jiyoung and Lee Seung Ho—will bring their intimate culinary knowledge of Korea’s most affluent district.
Gangnam the most popular place in Korea is located in Seoul. It’s filled with great energy, people on the go, expensive designer stores, Korean superstars and of course exotic food. Travelers and locals alike also make a beeline for street food stands, bars and restaurants.
At Seven Corners an array of quintessential Korean dishes is spread throughout the seven live cooking stations. Sink your chopsticks into the iconic Haemol Japchae, a popular stir fried noodle dish made with sweet potato, sesame oil and fresh vegetables. Then have a taste of the traditional Ggalbi Jjim, this braised short rib stew with mouth watering sauce is typically served during holidays and special occasions. Definitely a must try is the Korean Barbecue, thinly sliced meat with a smoky sweet flavor when broiled or cooked on the grill. It is usually eaten with lettuce wraps and spicy red pepper paste. The chefs will also present a different twist on Kimchi called Geotjeori, a cabbage salad similar to Korea’s national dish but prepared without the process of fermentation. For a taste of street food, sample Pajeon pancake a delicacy made from green onion with clams, oysters and mussels. There will also be all sorts of sweet treats from ice shaved desserts to assorted rice cakes.
Every Korean meal is not complete without side dishes. Upon seated, expect different choices to be served to your table. Aside from food, beverage is also an integral part of their way of life. Complimenting your meal is a special drink list featuring alcoholic and non alcoholic from Soju to Omijacha punch, a traditional tea drink made of fruit herbs called omija.
