For less than $20, here’s your chance to experience grilled meat, veggies, and seafood in all it’s glori’ousss’ness’nessss.
Not bragging, but yea, I have been to Gyu-kaku (gyoo-ka-koo) a number of times for dinner, but I had never been to Gyu-kaku for lunch because I’m guessing lunch hours is a new thing? (I could have researched it, but naaaawwww).
Before I get into the details, I have to thank all of you for using my promo code (below) which basically has allowed me a free lunch, dinner, linner, and a 2nd, 3rd, and 5th meal (I really do appreciate it).
2 item, 3 item, or Go Full Fatass
A plethora of combos, value sets, add-ons, upgrades, etc. awaits you at Gyu-kaku.
The Lunch Combos:
Give that Tupperware a break and go out for lunch every once in a while.
I went partial fatass with 2 grilled items and my 3rd item being a vegetable because vegetables are good (I have no problem eating my daily requirement of vegetables).
Yes, you have to cook it yourself, but if you can handle a grill and meat, you’re in for a good meal. If you can’t, invite me, I’ll grill for you, and all I require is endless pitchers of beer….and love and hugs.
That’s so Japanese to see specials plastered all over the place.
When in a’Muuuuurica You Serve Soup and Salad
Don’t worry, there’s no live octopus that you’re required to kill yourself, but instead expect to see your usual soup, salad, meat/seafood, and rice menu.
Yeaaaaa, well, okay, this is a large salad, and I thought I was going to get some tiny and miniscule salad. Not so, that dressing, hard-boiled egg, the mixed greens could have been a meal in itself.
Here’s the spread, I got the shrimp, spinach, and kalbi chuck rib because fat is flavor and it’ll melt in your mouth.
Before you dump the meat onto the grille, hover your hand over the grille at least 4″s off of the grille – if you can’t hold your hand there for more than a few seconds, your grille is ready. If somehow you can, either turn that heat up, or you’re just a badass who probably can’t feel love or searing heat.
TIP: Only place the pieces of meat you plan on eating immediately, and do not dump it all onto the grille all at once.
PLEASE WHATEVER YOU DO, please do not overcook the meat. If you think that “red juice” is blood, it’s not. It’s myoglobin. So the more you cook it, the dryer and tougher the meat gets which is why you only need to place the meat on the grille and flip it once.
Grilling is food cooked at high temperature, so all it takes is a couple seconds to cook the meat because it is thinly sliced just for quick grilling.
I can’t get enough of the spinach, corn, or mushroom medley – butter and garlic is good on almost anything.
The spinach should sit on the very edge of the grille and should not be exposed to high heat (if you BBQ, it goes onto the top shelf in a grille).
This is not Taco Bell where you need to make a b-line to the sauce counter to douse your food with mild, hot, diablo, and fire packets.
Want points, use the promo code to hook yourself up, and if you want to post your code, feel free to post it below in the comments section, so that others can use it too.
After only 350 points, lunch is on Gyu-kaku.
Aside from not overcooking your meat, if you can properly grille shrimp, when you bite into it, it will be plump’a’licious like a big ole juicy booty. If not, you will have to chew a chewy piece of shrimp that has been dried out because you let the shrimp lounge out on the grille like your older next door neighbor tanning in their backyard.
There’s a reason why there’s over 700 Gyu-kaku’s’ku’ku’ku’kuuuuuu’s all over the world, they kill it when it comes to value.
