Acclaimed Korean Restaurant Namu Takes the Spotlight as K-Pop Fever Arrives in Dubai

Dubai, UAE, 5 April 2018 – A Korean buzz is in the air with the global phenomenon K-pop descending on Dubai this weekend, and there’s no better place to embrace the spirit than at Namu, W Dubai’s signature Korean restaurant.

Both provocative and bold, Namu offers acclaimed and award-winning Korean cuisine and promises a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours, a myriad of tastes and pulsing social rhythm. Dine in style on the 31st floor, suspended over glittering city lights and the Dubai Water Canal as you indulge in a unique menu described as a ‘intriguing Korean and Japanese culture clash’.

With the extensive menu divided into sections including Fire, Action, Steam and Ice, and four live cooking stations in the theatrical open kitchen, you know you are in for an experience. Indulge in the freshest sashimi from the cool waters of Japan, the tempting chicken yaki tori, smothered in a sticky, sweet sauce, or the Seoul style bulgogi and crispy bimbimbap with a special crispy rice twist from the experimental chef. The captivating beverage menu also offers up a creativity that is unsurpassed – featuring classic Korean beverages including Junmai Sake or the ‘Gangham Style’ (plum and black pepper infused Soju served with Tonic Water) –  that will transport you to Korea at first sip.

Full of much loved Korean sharing style dishes, elevated to a new level with a smattering of guest appearances from Japanese ingredients, Namu offers dining for the provocative in-crowd and will likely draw in some of the great superstars of the K-pop game. With a whopping 35 artists performing this weekend in search of the greatest Korean dining experiences in town, we suggest you put Namu on your to-do list posthaste!
