In collaboration with the Korean Cultural Center, Flavors of the World: SEOUL-ful Gastronomy at Spiral features Korean Master Chef Hyeon Cheol Joo from Ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Yongsan. He is a multi-awarded chef who won the silver medal for Korean cuisine category of the International Young Chef Challenge in 2013 and gold medal for Korean cuisine category of the Seoul international Food and Tableware Festival in 2015.
The Korean atelier ranks among the most popular destinations among Spiral's 21 dining sections, with Korean cuisine growing its way into the adventurous Filipino palette.
Known for its various side dishes that may reach up to 20 different kinds in one meal, Korean cuisine is also famous for its national dish, kimchi, which is a traditional side dish made from fermented vegetables. Over 100 varieties of this popular dish prepared with different kinds of vegetables made it popular around the world.
Chef Joo elevates the sumptuous culinary offerings of the Korean atelier with his signature dishes, which includes bulgogi (sautéed sliced beef sirloin with mushroom); grilled deodeok (native Korean root vegetable) with red chili paste and two kinds of kimchi—diced turnip and fruit kimchi and fresh Korean cabbage kimchi; bibimbap (steamed rice with assorted vegetable in hot stone pot); seafood and spring onion Korean pancake; and bean curd and shrimp Korean pancake.
