After coming back from our SF/Napa Valley/Yosemite road trip, we were yearning for some good Asian food once again. Our family friend took us to Gyu-Kaku at Huntington Beach for their Happy Hour Special.
This particular location is opened for lunch everyday from 11:30am with your choice of BBQ lunch sets, all-you-can-eat courses and lunch time happy-hour.

Anyway, the Happy Hour Special is crazy good!!! Apparently they have a "Happy Hour All Day Every Monday" too according to the sign. It seems like at any time of day at any day of the week, Gyu-Kaku would have a deal going on.
The Happy Hour Specia (Mon-Sun 11:30-6:30pm & 8:30 - Last Call) consists of the following:
50% off all appetizers
99 cent beer
Nigori Sake for $7! It was THE first thing I ordered on the menu. I ♥ Nigori Sake! We also ordered several pitchers of Sapporo ($7.45). Pitchers of Budweiser were also available for $4.95.
I tried to keep track of everything we ordered, but honestly, everything came all at once at an amazing speed. Everyone started eating, putting things on the grill, and drinking, that I couldn't keep up with the pictures after awhile. Below are SOME of the things we ordered.
Fried Cheese Wonton
Crispy Seaweed with Cream Cheese
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
A picture of various things on the grill: Scallops, Garlic Shrimp, the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus...
...Bone-In Kalbi, Corn with Butter (butter is in that tin-foil holder thing).
I'm sure we ordered the Mushroom Medley and the Japanese Sweet Potato but I don't think I had a chance to take pictures of them. By the look of the table, I don't think anybody could resist not eating right away anyway.
With 700 locations worldwide, can't Gyu-Kaku open ONE restaurant in Toronto? That's not asking much, right? Don't be mean! *sigh*
