Gyu-Kaku ! 乾杯 !

Hello Cuties!

On January 25th I met up with friends to celebrate my friend Kristen's birthday!  She invited Prince and I to her big dinner at Gyu-Kaku, a Japanese BBQ!  Actually, I've been dying to try this place for some time now.

     The main attraction of Gyu-Kaku is the barbecuing.  Every table has a grilling pit in the middle.  I was beyond nervous to grill the meat myself!  I can't cook y'all!  (lol)  I'm always afraid of consuming under-cooked meat.  But fears aside, after I saw that menu, I was ready to chow down!!

     I'm usually to anxious to ask questions in situations like these, but I really wanted to have the best experience there.  When our waiter came to the table I asked him for recommendations based off of my tastes in food.  I'm not too familiar with meat cuts, marinade and whatnot.  He was SO helpful!  After telling him what I like, he recommended the yaki-shabu beef!

     I wanted to try as much as I could this first time, so I also ordered a main dish.  The waiter told me their garlic noodles were best sellers so I decided to get the garlic shrimp noodles.  And boy were they delicious!

     The cooking portion was pretty funny to watch  。゚( ゚^∀^゚)゚。.  I gave up because I was terrible at it, so I let Prince take over.  My friends were struggling about as much as I was, but eventually they got the hang of it. 

     What I loved most about this was you could alter the taste with marinade choices.  My favorite is the "sweet soy tare" which consists of : soy sauce, pear juice and ginger!

     I was determined to try it all despite how quickly I get full.  I wanted dessert and I already had my eyes set on one particular thing!  Taiyaki with ice cream~   Prince ordered their matcha tiramisu.  

This was soooo yummy!

     I'm so happy I finally got to try Gyu-Kaku!! Have you tried Japaneses or Korean bbq?  They've become so popular in my city it's hard to get a table!  Fingers crossed this isn't my last time visiting Gyu-Kaku tho; I think I'm addicted.

  1. Ahhhh I'm so happy you got to go to this place! We have a few in NY (one of them right by where I work) and I love it. It's too expensive to go all the time but it's a really nice treat when you save up enough. Ahhhhh I wanna go again. I love their food ToT

    1. You're right about that $$$ lol, definitely treat worthy xD It's our only one and I feel like they must be new because I've never seen it in the past, for sure they popped up within the past year or so. I'm glad it's finally here tho!!
