When I grew up in Lethbridge I remember when the Heidelberg Inn was built. Recently Ramada has purchased this hotel and opened a new restaurant. We saw the sign a couple of weeks before it was actually open, so we knew that we would be adding this one to our plastic bowl full of restaurants written on pieces of paper. We usually draw randomly. However sometimes we stack the deck and just go wherever we feel like. So on our radar today was Namu. So we order our food and submit ourselves to some meaningless chit chat and all of a sudden 'BOOMBAM', out comes some soup. When I first saw it I thought, hmmm, didn't know they served Miso soup in Korea. Then we were told it was Radish/Beef Soup. I LOVE RADISHES. I used to eat radish sandwiches when I was a kid. This soup was really good. What a nice change. I ordered the ribs. I really liked the flavor but next time I will order the BBQ beef. I like a little more meat than were on the ribs. I was impressed with the amount of food that came with the lunch box special. I wasn't hungry when we left. It seemed like the lunch special didn't want to offend vegetarians or meat lovers. There was plenty of both. 3 different types of salad, rice, dumplings, and the meat. I really enjoyed our lunch here at Namu. However I felt like I should have been at Sea World or something. I'm sure the name of the restaurant means something in Korean. It is a little too close to sounding like Shamu. Where's the trainer dude? Does the server splash us with water? Can I throw Namu a fish? Anyways, I hope people will make this place stay. I find that when a restaurant is located in a Hotel that there is a lot of turn over. So peoples, go eat at Namu! How do you say Bon appetit in Korean? "C"
PS. "M" is a winer. :-D
