FYI Gen Korean BBQ Alhambra opening this week


Gen Korean BBQ, which took over Tony Roma's old spot on main street Alhambra, will be opening this Thursday, the 27th.

Despite the fact that their facebook post says Friday the 28th just 1hr ago, i confirmed that it is Thursday the 27th after calling the Tustin branch just right now.

Though with the conflicting dates, I'd call ahead

  1. Thursday won.

    Now taking bets on OO-Kook opening, so far the response has been "Jan 7 or 10, or something".

      did u end up going? i'm avoiding it for now to avoid the (probable) wait but i think you like going when they open.

      oo-kook said something the first week..

      i don't like how there's already a yelp review already.. it hasn't even opened yet..

        jg, I'm curious, are you contributing to Wacow?

        OO-Kook told me Jan 7-10th, that's the second week.

          no unfortunately, my chinese is not at that level

          tho I hope to be moving in that direction (not wacow or anywhere specifically)

    2. Anyone get a confirmation of when oo-kook is opening? I tried to call them at the k-town location but it seems like no one was answering yesterday.

      1. OO-Kook is now officially open. Who's in for back-to-back AYCE KBBQ comparison?

          I tried oo-kook on Wednesday night, but have not tried gen yet. When are u planning on going?

        2. Has anyone been here yet?

          I've been asked to tag along to a party here, and I'm wondering if it's worth my time. I am unfamiliar with the quality of food at the other locations.
