Intrigue took over, and my curiosity was piqued, when old friend Angeline Mah invited me to the launch of K-Ginseng, in the newly opened Pullman Hotel, which I didn't even know existed, in Pantai Baru, next to the TM Tower. Two firsts in a row was just too much to resist.
Fortunately, I bumped into a familiar face, our dear Makan Fairy Godmother, (Marian Eu Hooi Khaw), which at least ensured I had palatable company for the night.
At the rate I was chugging the K-Ginseng drinks, (sweet as they were), I was beginning to worry that they had aphrodisiac properties....Some people swore they were feeling hot after drinking a few bottles.
The dinner fare on the menu showed the standard hotel banquet type dinner, which surprised us, because we were expecting Ginseng laced culinary offerings.
However, there were some bonus authentic Korean dishes prepared by Korean Chef Mrs Hae Young Nam, who has over 35 years of ginseng cooking under her belt.
Above is a ginseng beef wrap, which must be very authentically Korean. Totally new to me. I like the bitter flavours of the ginseng, and the crunch, paired with the tender beef.
The night's events were filled with performances ala Psy, (Gangnam Style), which I guess these days, is impossible to escape, especially for a Korean event, some traditional Korean dance, and a rather entertaining songstress.
