Hilton Busan celebrated its first anniversary this month.

It has been touted as a top “destination hotel,” inviting guests to visit the area particularly for the hotel.

Celebrating the success, the hotel held its Gourmet Journey event on July 12, allowing participants to taste special set course menus prepared by executive chef Kang Jae-hyun.

The guests entered the Banquet Hall Kitchen to watch the chefs prepare dishes up close. They offered a taste of the cold plates, too, such as canape and sushi.

The set course menu’s main dishes and desserts were prepared at the hotel’s Da MOIM restaurant. After dining, guests were invited to McQueens’s Bar for its signature cocktail prepared by the bar’s French mixologist Thibaud Vatan.
