Grilling at its Best for Whatever you Choose at GEN Korean BBQ…


Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

Bulgogi literally means fire meat — bul is fire and gogi is meat in Korean. This savory dish, typically thinly sliced beef marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, ginger, onion, sugar (or honey), sesame oil and black pepper, is grilled in front of you at the table, with sliced leeks and mushrooms. It’s served with side dishes of cooked or pickled vegetables that range from crunchy and cool to sharp, tangy and spicy.

Until recently, bulgogi was considered a celebration dish, eaten on birthdays and at weddings or served to guests. Only a couple of decades ago, in fact, a bulgogi meal was worth bragging about to friends, at least for kids.

But with South Korea’s rising fortunes, the dish has become an everyday staple, found in practically every Korean food venue, from fast-food joints to fancy four-star restaurants. “Bulgogi is easy to make and everyone can enjoy” it, says Kim Hyun-sik, a chef at Samwon Garden restaurant in Seoul. (

How about Korean Barbecue!!

So now we’re off to the races and a group of us family and coworkers decided to go to a brand new Korean BBQ joint called GEN.

When you get there you experience loud music with Neon lights everywhere and the sounds of sizzling meat and glasses clinging.

You sit down and there is a large grill in the middle of the table for your grilling pleasure.

You order your meats and sides of choice like GEN Beef Bulgogi, Spicy Chicken,GEN Cajun Shrimp,and rice. (Make sure you have grilled meat before else this may not be the place for you. It is self grilling.)

I’m sure you can ask them to grill it for you as well but where is the fun in that.

Little by little they bring our lovely glistening fiddles ready to be sizzled and we visualize and attack and scarf them down then order the next round!

The marinades are delicious, with tender meat, sliced with utmost precision!

A great place for laughter, drinks and excitement for any day that you choose.

True live action eating! Great job GEN!

You can get a glimpse of the action in the YouTube video below..


If you have never tried Korean Barbecue then I suggest you do quick fast and in a hurry. I promise you that you won’t regret it!

Eating is an enjoyable way of life. Live it..Learn it..Love it!
