Korean food is not just about hot kimchi soup and bibimbap. Namoo on the Park , Dessert Cafe n Bistro is a combination of Korean Western fusion and the in-between. What I like about the bistro is the family focus setup, exterior seats facing the mini playground where you can watch your kids play while enjoying a cup of brew. That definitely explains why Namoo is on the park rite?
We grab our seats along the window, excited with the trendy 'hanger' menu that was handed to us. The staffs there were busy and took our orders really quickly that day. We ordered the Namoo Fruit/Peach Water (RM8.90) and we get: frozen peach in ice cubes.
Fruit water when the ice melted; so it is indeed a fruit water but not peach juice. Duh!
Nothing special on the taste but presentation is impressive (this applies to other stuff we've ordered as well).
The Bibi Rice Burger (RM19.90) is a grilled chicken breast burger on rice bun, with fried egg, cheese and Bibi sesame sauce fillings. The portion is HUGE with additional wedges and fries - crispy to the very end, and a jungle of salad. This plate could feed 2 pax for sure but the generosity does not balance up with the amount of sauce given. The burger seems a bit tasteless with the limited Bibi sauce, and the rice bun was too thick to my liking.
We were half way through the burger when the staff came with the wrong orders. Our Prawn Omuto turns out to be Chicken Omuto and no apologies were said.
We were shown the menu again, and the staff vanish with the plate full of chicken; we do regret not ordering that when we saw the prawn version in another 20 minutes.
White Cream Prawn Omuto (RM19.90) - fried rice wrapped in egg omelette with white cream sauce and fried prawns. Similar to Japanese's Omu rice, with the extra chunks of octopus - the korean way! Nothing lesser than the Bibi burger, the Omuto was served with salad and marinated sour cucumber. But the taste was mild, nothing compared to a plate of kimchi fried rice.
