About 30 entrepreneurs are cooking the best Asian snacks for us to taste. We’re so ready for all the dumplings, spring rolls, chicken spies, pad Thai and noodle soup. Besides eating a lot of food (our favourite thing to do) and drinking Asian beers, there’s more to do at Umami Park. For example; take a rest in the park by following a yoga lesson and enjoy meditation music and incense. It’s Sunday and we’re just acting as if we’re on Bali. Relax! You can also shop books, furniture, clothes, jewelry, arts & crafts and other items from the East. Ps: Take your kids with you, there is a lot to do for them too ;-).
