It is going to be an “oppa-tizing” July as Marriott Hotel Manila presents Korean Food Festival this month. While many would hop on a plane for that ultimate K-pop experience of Korea, the hotel serves it hot and authentic through a flavorful immersion. No visa needed, just an appetite!

In partnership with the Korean Cultural Center, they flew in a team of 4 chefs from one of the largest and famous resorts in Seoul, Elysian Gangchon. Both K-pop fans and foodies can’t miss out on the biggest culinary fete at their Marriott Café buffet for this year.
