The first time I ate at Gyu-Kaku, it was in Yokosuka, Japan at More City Shopping Mall. It would become one of my favorite lunch spots while living in Japan. Gyu-Kaku is a Japanese BBQ restaurant, where you cook the meats on a small grill at the table. After moving from Japan, I didn’t eat there again until I was on a business trip in San Diego, CA, and saw a location there. My daughter and I went there to dinner right after checking into our hotel. It was just like we remember from our time in Japan.

After moving back to Louisiana I was excited that a location had opened up in New Orlean. A weekend getaway was in the plan right away to get yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) was on the agenda. The most recent trip has been more restrictions have been lifted here in Louisiana. The Central Business District and the French Quarter were back alive again.

What’s on the table…

Here’s what we ordered this time for lunch.

Rice (Gohan) – For me, yakiniku is not complete with a bowl of rice. In Japanese rice is called gohan.

Spicy Pork – Thinly sliced pork with a spicy jalapeƱo miso seasoning.

Pork Belly – Thinly sliced pork belly with shio flavor for seasoning.

Filet Migon – Cut in small cubes seasoned with salt and pepper.

Harami Skirt Steak – Thinly sliced beef with a miso seasoning.
