Austin-based Korean restaurant sells out after Joe Rogan visit goes viral

Austin, Texas – This week, popular comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan visited the Austin restaurant Gangnam Korean BBQ. His visit was shared by the restaurant which looked delighted to host the TV funnyman. Speaking on their Instagram account, they wrote: ‘Can’t thank Joe Rogan enough for stopping by and for giving us a shoutout! thank you!’ which was accompanied by a picture of the ex-fighter.

As seen below, the eatery also shared a video of Rogan inside the venue. Here, he posed for fans before eating the likes of octopus, bulgogi, and hotpot. Back in 2020, Joe Rogan famously made the move from California to Texas. Since then, he has made his home in Austin and hasn’t looked back. As a result, it’s not too surprising to see the comic out and about. Since Rogan’s visit, Gangnam has gone on to record sold-out evenings which show just how impactful his visit was when it comes to creating a local buzz.

Gangnam finds BBQ success in Austin

Gangnam Korean BBQ in Austin is a popular Korean barbecue restaurant known for its delicious grilled meats, cheesy corn, and soju. With its authentic Korean dishes and lively atmosphere, it’s definitely a must-visit for anyone looking for a flavorful and fun dining experience. This is particularly the case with its hotpot menu. While this mostly involves various cuts of meats, there’s also a selection of seafood options like spicy squid or grilled fish.

Vegetables like mushrooms, peppers, and onions are typically served alongside the meat, and you can wrap everything up in a crisp lettuce leaf with some kimchi and rice for a delicious bite. Of course, Korean BBQ wouldn’t be complete without a selection of side dishes called banchan, such as kimchi, radish pickles, and sweet potatoes. And let’s not forget the soju, a Korean liquor that pairs perfectly with grilled meat. With this in mind, it’s not surprising that this restaurant has been a success in the Austin food scene.
