Gogi Time

Keep your schmancy dinners and your chicly dimmed lighting: As anyone who witnessed the out-the-door lines at the newish all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ joint Gogi Time this past Valentine’s Day can attest, the truest romance in the East Bay isn’t found over a $40 steak but over a gut-busting, shirt-staining, resolve-challenging array of piping-hot kimchi pancakes, tender beef bulgogi, and unctuous pork belly, cooked on a tabletop stove and replenished endlessly for a mere $25 per person. Sure, the ambience at this cavernous Koreatown restaurant — fluorescent lighting, lots of families — isn’t necessarily amorous, and sure, not everyone wants to be wooed over a meat plate befitting a small army, but there’s something oddly charming about watching the right person cram as much discount beef down his or her gullet as humanly possible.
