Your quick guide to enjoying the everyday unlimited Yakiniku Promo at Gyu-Kaku

Rewind to a couple of weeks ago we rediscovered our love for Yakiniku at Gyu-Kaku. Hailed one of the best Yakiniku restaurants in Japan, they landed in Manila a few years ago, which obviously shows that I am not the type of person who'd give in to trends, except when it comes to social media and digital marketing (because that's my job or else I can't eat and spend and be merry when I want to hihi).

What I would give in to, however, are good dining deals, which is why looking at their everyday unlimited BBQ promo, it easily convinced me to try Gyu-Kaku (finally!). Although I have to be honest that they initially invited me to try this at their Shangri-la Mall branch (it was paid for by a dear friend), it only proved that it is worth paying for and I'm making sure to visit again.

In a way, Yakiniku differs slightly from KBBQ, for example, their use of special grills and coals to achieve a distinctive taste as you cook your meat and vegetables. With Korean BBQ, there isn't a ton of veggies for cooking except for onions and garlic, but they are still available as side dishes such as kimchi and pickled bean sprouts, radish and cucumbers. Gyu-Kaku, in the meantime, adds carrots, capsicum, shitake mushrooms, eggplant, and pumpkin.

They also serve everything a la carte instead of standing up and going to a designated area for meat refills. Just sit back, relax and enjoy cooking and eating as much as you can.

So how do you maximize this buffet style to the fullest? My key takeaway: you don't need to try everything and in large portions. A little bit of everything can give you an opportunity to check on what you really like, and once you find it, don't stop. It's just like dating and choosing the one you really love, right? Right And make sure not to waste any food along the way :P

Some downsides if you're a slow eater: the buffet time is only strictly 90 minutes, so it's best to arrive hungry and move fast. Wastage will also be charged, so again, don't abuse yourselves too much. For more details, read the terms and conditions on their menu before you proceed.

Not the best photo, but also sharing is a photo of my foodie friends for life, all of whom I totally missed since I don't see them as much as I would like to. Love these guys so much!
