    Namoo on the ParkPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Namoo Korean Dessert Café & Bistro takes pride in their ability in combining authentic Korean food with Western cuisine. Taking traditional elements like bulgogi beef and putting them into Western elements like tacos, is simply mind-blowing. One of their most well-known sections, ‘Just Rice Burgers’, is a great hit amongst young people. Though there are only a few ‘Just Rice Burgers’ available, they compensate by giving such diverse flavour. Assorted cakes and Korean-style sticky cakes sure know how to offer a delightful climax. Kudos to them for bringing their own take into Korean cuisine!

    Tips

    A beautiful, but well-hidden café to bring your loved ones!

    Things to expect

    Very friendly service.

    Best with

    Their Just Rice Burgers, Tacos, or ‘Hotteok’.
