Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers Brings Korean Cuisine Throughout May

food - Saigon/HCMC: May 3, 2018

Korean cuisine is widely known for its balanced portions of rice or noodles, meats and vegetables and the extremely large array of side dishes available. Evolving through centuries of tradition, Korean cuisine is special for its emphasis on yin and yang, with most of its dishes usually consisting of 5 different colours.

Special attention is also paid on the nutritional benefits of Korean dishes such as Ginseng Chicken Soup which is believed to cool down internal heat and regenerate your system. To sum it, Korean cuisine is more than just food, it’s a learning experience.

This month in Saigon, you too will have the chance to indulge in this experience with the authentic flavours of Seoul without leaving Saigon. From May 4th to the 24th, Saigon Cafe, located at Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, will be offering a selection of exquisite and premium Korean delicacies prepared by talented guest chefs from Sheraton Seoul D Cube City Hotel.
