We don’t venture outside of Convoy for AYCE Korean BBQ often. I was surprised and curious when a new Korean BBQ restaurant opened in Mission Valley. The restaurant was brand new, modern, and not AYCE. I should have written ‘but not AYCE’ because Cdj about fainted when he saw the prices here at 356 BBQ & Bar. We tried to visit some months ago but the service was non existent and they wouldn’t put on any of the Sunday football games on their tvs. So we didn’t give this restaurant much thought after that.
Fast forward to present time and 356 BBQ & Bar now offers a few AYCE options: 1) the 355 for $25.99; 2) the 356 for $29.99; and 3) the 357 for $36.99. The prices are further discounted Mon-Friday for lunch. For example, you can get the 355 for $21.99 during those days from 11:30a-3pm.

GYU KAKU JAPANESE BBQ
I wish my vice was shoes. It just ain’t. I wish I could look at a pair of stilettos and ask Santa to have it waiting under the Christmas tree in a few months. But no. You wanna know my vice. Groupon. Groupon is FayesFork’s vice. I’m a sucker for Groupon. I buy Groupon for restaurants and end up never using them.

I was surprised that this deal allowed for the funds to be used for Happy Hour. Generally, no Groupon deals will allow for Happy Hour so this offer for the $30 to be used at Gyu Kaku Japanese BBQ was pretty awesome. Plus, it’s ALL DAY Happy Hour Monday nights.
I was able to secure one of two OpenTable reservations for a Monday evening (BTW, did you know if you make an OT reservation via yelp, you do NOT get your +100 points – so be careful). The RSVP pickings were slim (4:45p and 5:15p). I was thankful that FB works close by and had no problem with a 5:15p reservation.
