We found this amusing Google-translated write-up on MMW: “Namoo means ‘tree’ in Korean, it brings us warm, comfortable and natural feeling. In the pasts (sic), Korean dessert only served to the KING (sic), but now Namoo is here to introduce you what is the Korean dessert (sic)”

My sister Virginia and her husband Vincent were in town for the Lunar New Year holidays. We took them to Ming Tien last night for dinner, and tonight they in turn took us to Publika in search of something Korean. After a brief walk-around Publika we eventually settled on Namoo, and sat ourselves down and began perusing the menu. 

our first time here
woah, profound!
love the scrabble tiles
hmm... what to eat?
the simple menu
still undecided
k-pop boy!


Vincent ordered the Kimchi Spaghetti; Brendan had the Rice with Kimchi Soup; I tried the Bulgogi Beef Pasta; Virginia had the Rice with Bulgogi Beef while Cat had the Bibimbap. For side orders we had Kimchi Pancake and Tteokbokki.

The verdict? Truth be told we‘ve had better Korean dishes but the company tonight more than made up for any shortcoming. Heck, it isn’t often that w get to dine with my sister and her husband. The ambience was just right and we had a good time catching up with each other's lives. And the damage? Since Vincent picked up the tab we’d rather not say, except that it was beyond the realms of the everyday food for the everyday person.
