Update: We have a location!
Gen is a popular Korean restaurant chain from Los Angeles, California. The word “GEN” means “the beginning” and is actually an open invitation to the art of Korean BBQ. If you’ve been to LA, then chances are you’ve seen the long lines outside this popular resto.
It's best known for its grand grill all you can experience where diners can feast on premium samgyupsal (pork belly), chadol (beef brisket), seafood, and more.
Each set meal comes with a variety of traditional Korean ban-chan (side-dishes) to complete your ultimate Korean BBQ spread. Unlike other buffet-style barbecue place, guests can relax while staff recommend and deliver orders to their tables.
Thanks to the Excello Restaurant Management Group (the same guys who will be bringing in Sarabeth's from NYC), Gen Korean BBQ is opening soon in Manila!
Gen prides itself in a “stellar ventilation system” and a trendy space fit for the trendy LA night scene. Each customer is given a two hour limit for each visit hence the long waiting times.
Most of its stores are open until 11PM so it’s the perfect pre-game dinner for party goers.
Their bestselling Hawaiian steak is a definite crowd pleaser (and yes we think pineapples on a pizza are normal).
There are over 20 meat options to choose from so choose wisely because the clock is ticking!
Most people start off with an order of the pork belly to beautifully coat the grill with sinful pork grease. Other favorites include kobe beef, black angus, and of course, bacon.
You are also served a variety of sauces that go perfect with each piece of protein.
With almost 20 locations spread across the US (they are also opening in Honolulu as well), this sought after Korean restaurant is a welcome addition to our growing list of authentic Korean BBQ in the Philippines. It’s definitely the perfect location for special occasions and after office drinks.
We’re looking forward to trying their unique soju creations packed in cute pouches. We’re also hoping they’ll bring in their mouthwatering ice cream macaron sandwiches as well!
