How I heard of this place: Our good friend introduced us to Oe Gad Gib by sending an email inviting us to join him for a delicious, all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ dinner to break the Nineteen Day Fast.

Beef & Salad

Seeing as how Korean food in Annandale has been on our list of things-to-do in the area, we could not turn down the invitation!


Type of cuisine: Ayce Korean BBQ. It seems the Koreans – the make-up of everyone in the restaurant except for four of us in our party of seven – come specifically for the Ayce Korean BBQ. No reason to even crack open the menu.

Ambiance: Clean lines, limited decor and a focus on food is what I like to see when I enter an establishment that knows what it’s doing. Here, we found just that! Boxed lanterns mounted on the walls setting an amber glow across the room, hardy wooden tables (with options for extensions for larger parties) accompanied by wooden pew-like benches and chairs, space for smaller parties in booths and a wooden floor to bring it all together – that’s what welcomed us into this intimate establishment.

What I ordered: We left it to the professionals, who selected the all-you-can-eat option ($16 per person) and were pleasantly inundated with huge plates, piled high with frozen thinly cut strips of beef, and an abundance of sides that never seem to lessen, salads, rice bowls, and soon dubu to crowd the table.

What I loved: Slightly sweet pickled radish, rice fried on the stone grill with strips of beef (our own invention) covered in gochujang, and the spicy tofu soup,

not to mention the delicious and abundant salad that perfectly complemented the over-consumption of beef.


Why I loved it: Friendly, helpful staff, who were quick to respond to our queries and requests for more food; an environment almost solely comprised of Korean diners; a never-ending array of food in our midst and the company of people who were not afraid to eat!

Cost: Low to average ($16 per person; low for an all-you-can-eat space!)

      Shoot. My husband does all that for me, so I’m uncertain as to the host. Good luck finding one that works for you!
