New Japanese BBQ restaurant coming to Mississauga

Fans of Japanese BBQ might want to grab a napkin before reading this to absorb the drool—there’s a Gyu Kaku opening in Mississauga.

The new restaurant will be taking over the vacant spot in the Sussex Centre, that used to be Spring Rolls, across the street from Square One.

Gyu Kaku—which is Japanese for “Horn of the Bull”—is intended to bring dining guests together while enjoying an authentic, yakiniku (Japanese for grilled barbecue) meal.

“We want our food dining experience to inspire laughter, conversation, and amazing times! You can’t help it—with a personal grill installed at every table, everyone instantly becomes an expert cook. Our friendly staff aspires to lead guests through the dining experience with helpful suggestions,” the restaurant writes on their website.

Guests can expect to enjoy a myriad of premium meats grilled over an open flame at their tableside grill, while they enjoy traditional Japanese beverages including sake and shochu (they also serve beer for those wondering).

Gyu Kaku’s best selling cut of meat is the harami miso skirt steak, which is aged 21 days to increase both tenderness and flavour. Another popular menu option is the Certified Angus kalbi short rib served in a tare sweet soy marinade.

There are more than 700 Gyu Kaku locations worldwide, but this will be only the ninth location in Canada, and only the third in Ontario.

“The sounds around you are of parties and laughter—the PERFECT choice for first dates, families, and catching up with friends,” writes the restaurant.
