I love how Amarillo is growing and bringing in new restaurants and cuisine.  We are lucky to be living in a blooming city.

When I first heard about Korean BBQ,  I knew I wanted to try it, but, as you know Amarillo doesn't have anything like this, and I personally don't travel that much so it was a dream.

However, it is no longer a dream!  We are getting a Korean BBQ restaurant.  Not only are we getting one, we are getting two.  Two locations to enjoy.

Dae Gee will be opening up two restaurants in Amarillo.  According to a Facebook post, the new owner of the franchise, Phuc Nguyen, said:

“My decision to bring this great concept to Amarillo comes at a time when Korean food continues to gain more popularity among U.S. consumers. With a complexity of different flavors and cuisine largely comprised of proteins, vegetables, grains and assorted spices, Korean food is a great choice for the health-conscious and clean-eating consumer. And the trend shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon,” said Nguyen. “I’m eager to bring Dae Gee’s great food, outstanding service, and overall dining experience to the people of Amarillo.”

The restaurant is expected to be open in the next 12 months!

What is Korean BBQ?

Korean BBQ is where guests gather around a table with a grill in the middle or inlayed in the table, and they are able to grill their own meat to their liking.  Of course they can order all the sides they want as well to go with their grilled meat.

I don't know about you, but this sounds like a fun dining experience.   I cannot wait until this unique dining experience opens up in Amarillo.

The Restaurants That Have Opened Up Recently

While some restaurants have been forced to shut down there have been others that opened. Take a look at some of the more recent openings.
