Gyu-Kaku, Sherman Oaks, CA

Gyu-Kaku Restaurant Review

: This airy Sherman Oaks restaurant features a black and white koi mural, white paper lanterns and bright red tables. Gyu-Kaku delivers a fun meal of DIY yakiniku, which is a Japanese style of grilling designed to boost flavor. The name translates from Japanese as “horn of the bull” so, of course, you’ll find beef, including harami skirt steak in miso marinade and Angus kalbi short rib in tare soy marinade. Pork, lamb, duck, chicken and garlic shrimp are also in play. Vegetarians will appreciate the mushroom medley, Japanese sweet potato, garlic spinach and corn cheese. You’re expected to cook ingredients yourself, on tabletop charcoal grills, which can be fun. To drink, choose from saké, shochu and cold beer.
