    You're my brother from another mother! I am of the same opinion about ala cart Korean and Hot Pot restaurants--TOO LITTLE FOR TOO MUCH!

    You always have the best videos. 10 years ago, I went to a Chinese hot pot with BBQ in the San Francisco "Richmond District" I do not remember the name, but I can not find on Google.. Do you know any Hot Pot/BBQ restaurants in SF/Sac or anywhere else Where my Family can experience the Hot pot and the Grill in the same table?

    Honestly didn’t like Gen that much, preferred Q-Pot way more. Little human interaction and better seasoning though it’s like $5 more expensive

    I know this is late but this is why I love to go to KBBQ cause they want to teach you how to cook as well. I love to learn how to fry my food and they always help me learn.

    Granted, this looks delicious, but having watched several of your videos, your reactions are always the same and OTT. From this, to microwave ramen, you always seem to say the same thing.

    We just got one of these in our area and it absolutely destroys all the competition. Tons more meat you actually want, ultra-fast service, and cheaper than anyone else.

    not even 30 bucks for a single plate of brisket. At most, 20 bucks, and they give you a hefty amount of them as well.

    I just now realized why the rest of the world thinks Californians are so pompous and arrogant, specifically southern Californians. I grew up in LA so it hasn’t hit me until now. It’s because everything in California is better. Everything. Those kbbq spots you showed in New York look like the most disgusting restaurants ever. No wonder everyone hates on us, specifically La. And Here in LA Gen is a joke, too. You should take a trip to Los Angeles. K-Town is where it’s at!

    I'm korean and have always considered myself as a "bbq expert". And I gotta say Mikey knows exactly how to enjoy korean bbq. You guys can trust him at least when it comes to eating korean bbq. I can approve that. And so when you have a chance to have kbbq next time, just remind the way he eats in this video or watch it quick. That'll help as hell when you take advantage of your kbbq as much as you can.

    I’ve been there before and the tofu soup was very good, and their brisket with mushrooms and onions was the best way I’ve ever ate brisket. Also the Hawaiian steak was amazing with the grilled pineapple. Tip: at every Korean barbecue always grill everything even Kim-chi and vegetables, you can thank me later.
