Wawa is for "Come closer to Korean food!"

Posted by Anne



For a belated celebration of the Korean New Years Eve the Berlin Yelp Elites were invited to an introduction into the Art of Korean Dining at the newly opened Wawa in Berlin-Schöneberg. After being welcomed with hot green and roasted corn aka popcorn tea they were given a short How To Eat With Chopsticks and a guide into the Korean etiquette by Elite Ki-Won S and an intro to the Art of Korean Dining by the Wawa team! And then there was the food ceremony  - letting us experiencing that you never leave a Korean table hungry. There was beef and pork Bulgogi and all kind of supplements to make your own Ssam (salad wrap), there was sweet pumpkin soup, there was a GIANT bowl of bibimbap. Dessert luckily came in a liquid form, a rice wine drink given an added sparkle with Sprite!

Thanx Wawa! Thanx Ki-Won S! Thanx Alex W for the fun pictures! Don't miss to check more pics and the reviews for more details!
