Korean food are the new favorite of many people today, after the boom of Italian, Mediterranean, Indian and Japanese cuisine here in our city, the spicyness, meaty and veggieness of a Korean food is welcome with open arms, especially if you are a foodie, you’ll bite and taste it before hugging it. Thanks to Korean novelas, pogi boy bands and sexy cute girl group performers, the Korean invasion is finally complete and we have now lots of Korean groceries, school, boarding house, Kpop, Korean inspired outfit, Kimchis and more kimchis and also the food!

Last night, I attended a food tasting session for Woo Galbi, since the restaurant is not yet open, (it will open this April 2013 in Shangri La Plaza Mall's new wing) the food tasting session and food blogging was held in Wafu resto in Greenhills. The resto is owned by Brian Tiu and Chef Chris Oronce, after the launch of a series of restos, they now put up another Korean resto that will spice up our foodie life.

I didn’t expected that they will serve to us half of the food in Woo Galbi’s menu, I’m ready that night and beside me is my notepad and Olympus E-PL1 camera. Its hard to take note and get the write spelling of the name of those Korean dishes, but I stick to its common and English name version.

Spinach with miso hollandaise
My not so favorite dish, all pure greeny leaves, the miso hollandaise added more taste to this Spinach. Its too heavy for my tummy, but this is perfect for a vegetarian person.
