Go Gangnam! A Korean Food Festival at Novotel Manila Araneta Center
Discover Korea with dishes prepared by Chef Jong-Man Kim of Novotel Gangnam from February 21 to 27, 2017 at Novotel Manila. Enjoy the ever popular Bibimbap, Japchae, Bulgogi and more at the Food Exchange available during the lunch and dinner buffet. The grill station offers Beef, Pork, Fish, and Chicken, best paired with various Korean sauces to liven up the flavour. It’s a good excuse to go for multiple rounds of grilled meat. Beyond mentioned is the regular buffet offerings from their popular Indian Station, specialty Pizza Station, and the Dessert Station that features some of the best churros in town and the classic Puto Bumbong “Rice Cake” prepared with modern utilities, but watch out as it occasionally ejects the treat without warning.

Before Lunch we were treated to a traditional performance by the Korean Cultural Center, they toured the venue with their drums and enthusiastic dances.  

What celebration would it be without some alcohol. A round of Soju for everyone as we welcomed the Korean Food Festival. General Manger Bernd Schneider led the toast that usher in the week long festivities happening in Araneta Center.

On February 25 and 26, Araneta Coliseum Korea’s EXO will be performing live for two nights. Catch Xiumin, Suho, Lay, Baekhyun, Chen, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun as they perform some of the group’s hit songs.

Below are some of the dishes to expect at the buffet.
