Late last year, the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center Singapore was opened. This facility has an EV production line and an experience center for the public under its roof. Currently, visitors can sample the automaker’s portfolio of eco-friendly vehicles in and around HMGICS’s premises. However, an upcoming addition will cater to patrons who fancy having their taste buds tickled.

Opening at the center in June is a restaurant called Na Oh. The name means “moving from inside out” in Korean, and the menu will be put together by three-Michelin-star chef Corey Lee. The food will reportedly consist of modern interpretations of traditional Korean dishes, so it’s probably safe to say that budae-jjigae (army base stew) won’t be making an appearance.

Na Oh’s entrées will be made from ingredients sourced from HMGICS’s in-house plant nursery. This will apparently feature the restaurant’s farm-to-table philosophy. Showing this to customers was deemed essential in providing a unique dining experience as Singapore currently imports over 90% of its food supply.
