Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ Restaurant

We celebrated my birthday on Monday with Japanese BBQ at Gyu-Kaku. I was considering several other restaurants but decided that what I really wanted was some MEAT!

We ordered a Warai set for 2 and a Fuku set for 2. The Warai set comes with kim chi, Korean style cucumber pickles, assorted sausages and bacon, wagyu tongue, wagyu nakaochi, wagyu rump cap, lamb chop, pork belly, prawns and ishiyaki bibimbab.

The Fuku set comes with kim chi, aburi bacon, assorted mushrooms, wagyu fillet steak, wagyu short rib, wagyu rump cap, kurobuta pork collar, duck breast, black cod in miso and ishiyaki mentaiko. Both sets come with a choice of salad and dessert.

The horenso salad is delicious! The spinach leaves in sesame dressing and bacon is definitely not a healthy salad but a very tasty one. The ice-cream and milk pudding with black sugar syrup and powdered soy bean are both very yummy as well.

It was a really good dinner and I satisfied my craving for meat. Our dining companions were a little strange but the food made up for it!

Tawandang Microbrewery

We had a Father’s Day and birthday dinner at Tawandang Microbrewery on Sunday evening. Good beer, tasty food but pricey!
