checked out Gen kbbq in Northridge yesterday. 2nd time at Gen, first time at Northridge location
Banchan selection was small but probably geared towards their target market. Meal quality was pretty decent, with brisket being a total standout that day, galbi a close 2nd, and bulgolgi a close 3rd. Service was also surprisingly exceptional, given how busy they were. Had no issues getting stuff ordered, got our grills cleared out w/o asking, etc. Maybe it's cuz we were right next to the waiter stand.
They were out of Hite though, and the "rice cakes" on the menu were absolutely terrible.
At $22pp for AYCE I can't argue.
best part of the night: we were outside waiting for our table (in the parking lot, not by the doors) and Gen was in the middle of a shift change. One of the waitresses comes running out and screams something to the effect of "and I never have to work here again!!!!!" Caught her giving Gen the double middle finger while presumably taking pictures for her facebook page.
