Embassy marks end to import ban
The promotional event runs through March 12 at the hotel’s Market Kitchen and Market Larder restaurants.
The lunch and dinner menus, developed by a German chef at the hotel, include a range of dishes, including beef wellington, carpaccio, Thai salad, Canadian burgers, beef tataki, short ribs and wok-fried beef.
Visitors to Market Kitchen can win raffle prizes, which include a round-trip ticket to Vancouver, a two-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul, Canadian ice wine and an Arc’teryx jacket.
Canada’s week-long celebration comes with beef imports to the Korean market now restored, ending a temporary ban that was imposed over concerns about mad cow disease. Korea put the ban in place in February 2015, after a cow in Alberta was discovered infected.
