    Assuming there was no behind the scene proxy voting 8), I'm still Esteemed Coordinator for 2019. So there.

    It's been quite some time since we've done Korean BBQ. As a result of some recent intel posted by Cathy2 -
    viewtopic.php?p=539129#539129 - we're going to rectify that and check out Kogii Kogii. Please join us on the 22nd. As always, bring a friend.

    Despite the blatant disregard of the term limit codicil to the LTHNLG bylaws by our apparent emperor for life EC, I will be there.

    I'm tentative. Depends on how bloated I'm feeling coming back from this week's business trip.

    The lunch specials and other parts of the menu suggest Japanese influences, not necessarily a bad thing, but it will be interesting to see if this is truly fusion. At least I don't see any pad Thai. And I've never been at a Korean restaurant where they cut anybody off on the banchan.

    Nevertheless, I am somewhat intrigued. Count me in for now.

    Based upon Cathy's previous thread, I had been meaning to privately suggest this as an option, so obviously I wish to come.

    Just curious, please don't jump all over me.

    Is it pre-ordained, "probable" or clueless if we are doing the "all you can eat"? Or is the ayce just for dinner, so we couldn't if we wanted to? And, of course, they might discontinue the special by the time we get there....

    Just curious if I invite a friend who might NOT want ayce due to limited foods she will eat, and, as usual, they say ayce is everybody or nobody per table.

    And explain that you are talking 1 person at a large gathering. Even if they have the rule, they might make an exception in that sort of situation.

    Based on both Ronnie and Cathy's intel, we're going with AYCE on the 22nd. I will confirm that it's still available when I make the reservation. EC

    FYI - Our party was seven people, four hovering around inset gas bbq and three at the tabletop bbq. Perhaps one or two more at the BBQ at the tabletop.

    Once again on the periphery of my lunch range I will have to make it to go. I will sit and enjoy everyone's company for a short while.

    Looking forward to visiting this place!

    Thanks for setting this up and See ya!

    Question about the AYCE.....presumably it comes with banchan, but it there anything else besides the bbq? I was kind of interested in trying the pancakes and soup? Do we have a big enough group to do an AYCE table and an a la carte table if others are interested? If not I am fine with the AYCE.

    I'll swing by there early next week to work out the logistics of the upcoming gathering.
    Stay tuned for further developments.

    Count me out too for the AYCE. Like Panther, if I have time I may stop by for something to carry out and say hi.

    AYCE comes with banchan, rice and miso soup. Looking at their menu, ordering the bbq a la carte provides no significant savings over AYCE. Paying only $5 more than the cheapest a la carte bbq item gets you as many as five additional bbq items to try. And, if one is worried about overdoing it, the AYCE portions are definitely smaller than the a la carte portions, so going that route isn't necessarily a lot more food.

    It seems like the only reason to avoid AYCE would be if you don't want bbq at all.
