I waited to tell you about this because the pictures just made me so wistful for everything about this place.
This is Gyu-Kaku, a Korean BBQ chain that calls itself a Japanese BBQ chain that has a location 2 blocks from where we stayed a few weeks ago.
In Japan, this style of eating is called Korean BBQ. In America, it’s called Japanese. I with I knew why, really. I think maybe something to do with politics? Really and truly – the owner of the sushi restaurant I used to work at told me one time that so many Chinese restaurants have Tokyo/Japan/Hibachi in the name because Americans currently are more favorable towards Japan compared to other Asian countries.
Fascinating? Boring? Wrong? We can all make up our own minds about that.
