Wagyu beef brisket, tenderloin & oyster blade steaks, marinated with Himalayan rock salt, tare sauce, shio or spicy miso, plus lamb chops, chicken fillets, sausages, squid & salmon, barbecued over a charcoal grill - Gyu-Kaku hits the protein-loving spot for those occasions when all you want is to sink your teeth into a succulent meal of meat & seafood.
Select a platter set, starting at RM135.90 for two persons, breaching RM474.90 for the most premium set for four persons, complete with well-prepared sides such as a fresh bowl of spinach salad with crispy garlic & sesame dressing, plus a hearty chicken-tofu hot stone kimchi soup, then commence the cooking at the table. Smokeless roasters ensure complete comfort for customers. You can also order smaller plates of specific cuts - a basic serving of beef tongue, for example, costs RM27.90. Quality & attention to detail are satisfying; the produce measures up to expectations, & even the sauces are capably balanced.
In the afternoon, 12pm through 4pm, convenient lunch boxes are available for fast but fulfilling sustenance, with ensembles that comprise, say, chicken teriyaki & yakitori with steamed rice, fried vegetables & konnyaku jelly for RM19.90 before taxes (other boxes include beef croquettes, shrimp gyoza, salmon teriyaki & more). Add on one ringgit for a milk pudding topped with roasted soybean powder & brown sugar syrup (regular price RM10.90). If you have time to linger, the restaurant also offers all the essential sake, shochu, umeshu, whiskey & wine. Many thanks to Gyu-Kaku for having us here.
