After so many times of not being able to try out Namoo @ Publika, I finally had the chance to have a nice Korean lunch last Friday with the colleagues! The cute mascot of Namoo welcomed us at the entrance of the cafe bistro and we can't wait to try out their dishes!Firstly, some background on Namoo
Namoo which means 'tree' in Korean was founded on a deep-rooted belief that good food should be fresh, natural and timeless. And for that reason Namoo have gone to great lengths to ensure that everything in the menu is authentically korean, but fused with a modern twist! The interior of the cafe follows their name which is using earthly colours and materials. It has a very comfy ambiance where you can choose to sit at the high table, the dining area or even the sofa area. You can even choose to dine al-fresco where they have an outdoor dining area next to the playground. This is very convenient especially for parents who want to bring their children where you can monitor them at the playground/park
There are a variety of dishes at Namoo ranging from their Rice Burgers, Pastas, Bibimbap, Western and also their desserts!My colleague ordered the Bulgogi Pasta which is so AWESOME!! Although a bit too sweet for us, the portion of beef bulgogi was so much! Namoo is super generous with their ingredients and I couldn't stop picking at the beef bulgogi! Yummy!!

Meanwhile, I ordered the Bibi Rice Burger. The rice patties/buns were grilled nicely with bits of seaweed to give it a nice fragrance and I love the charred bits of the rice buns! The Bibi Rice Burger comes with salad and fries.

Another colleague ordered the Omurice which is rice wrapped in omelet and topped with sweet chili sauce and fried prawns. I felt that the sauce was a bit too much and would prefer they not being too generous with the sauce which caused the prawns to be slightly soggy and sweet

Meanwhile, we also ordered the Spicy Seafood Pasta which again Namoo was generous with their seafood. It was not as spicy as we hoped it to be and again the sauce was sweet
And the star of the show arrived! The King's Bing Soo. Always saw this in Korean dramas and had wanted to try this since I knew it was available in Namoo. So of course we would order this. Love the multigrain powder that they sprinkled on the ice-cream and the chewy rice cakes! The fruits were relatively fresh and sweet and we practically finished the whole jug!

Overall the drinks were nice but forgettable
