Many hotels these days include a few Korean dishes in their menu or buffet offering due to the significance of Koreans on tourist arrivals in the country. The number of tourists from South Korea breached the 1 Million mark last 2014 and if data is correct, they reached 1.5 million last 2016. That's wow! Not to mention that the Philippines holds the largest number of Koreans in diaspora in Southeast Asia.
Novotel Manila Araneta Center's Food Exchange takes it further as tribute to Korea's significant contribution to the culture, entertainment and tourism industry of the Philippines by not just a few but a whole range of Korean dishes on offering. Thus, #GoGangnamAtNovotel A K-Food Festival at Food Exchange Manila from Feb 21-27.
I love the Korean Kimchi Rice, the best I have tried to date. The kimchi that goes with it has that strong spicy kick. I also like Korean chicken barbeque and fish barbeque and pork humba.
Aside from the authentic Korean dishes during the go Gangnam K-Food Festival, Food Exchange Manila's buffet lunch and dinner still showcases other International favorites like brick oven pizzas, pasta, chicken tikka massala, chicken curry at the Indian section which I find really good, homemade ice cream, freshly made puto bumbong and bibingka at the dessert section as well as sushi and sashimi at the Japanese section.
