Korean BBQin!

Happy Social Saturday!

My girlfriend and I (August babies) celebrated our bdays at Gen Korean BBQ House at Ala Moana with our friends. We’ve been wanting to try this place and we were glad we finally did! It was pretty good! All-you-can-eat with a set price for lunch and dinner. However, if you don’t finish what you’ve ordered, the restaurant will charge you for anything that wasn’t eaten. Oooh! That’s good, though. Food should NOT be wasted! So, we made sure we didn’t leave anything left- haha!

Gen Korean BBQ House is located where the old Tsukiji Fish Market used to be. I loved the new atmosphere. It was very “club-like.” When we got there, it wasn’t too crowded- they don’t take reservations. But in the nick of time, the restaurant was filled!

We ordered garlic chicken, bulgogi, brisket, and boneless kalbi. We LOVED the brisket and kalbi. We ordered multiple rounds of those dishes! Whoo hoo! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The side veggies were delish! I look forward to that when dining at Korean restaurants. So good! And I love that you can have more if you want!

They provided three different sauces: shio (salt), sesame, and ponzu. I liked the ponzu sauce the best. It paired well with all the meats. Yum!

Birthday flashback!

Happy #FlashbackFriday!

Last year, my bf took me to Aunty’s Ramen for my bday luncheon. I’ve always wanted to try that place, as the owner used to own Sweet Home Cafe, a Taiwanese hotpot joint. Aunty’s Ramen is pretty similar to Sweet Home, but you’re not cooking your own ingredients in your soup. It’s already made and served to ya. However, you still get to pick a variety of ingredients to your soup, then pick your noodles and soup base. Meats is optional.

Unfortunately, Aunty’s Ramen does not offer complementary shave ice like Sweet Home did. But we love shave ice so much, that we ordered it for our dessert. They have a bar, with a variety of toppings to choose from. Taiwanese shave ice rocks!

Oh yea!! My mouth is watering!! So good!

Happy weekend y’all!
