I found out when we got there that the restaurant promises that there are no MSGs in their foods. Awesome! While we were making up our minds about what to order, they also gave us this complimentary dish of mini pancakes and what tasted like cheese puffs.
I personally am not a fan of their pancakes. The cheese puffs though, was delicious!
We decided to order four dishes to try. One entre (Japchae) and three mains (The Gaya Bulgogi, 36 Pork and Kalguksoo).

The prices were a little high - around $25-$30 per main dish. Though the portion sizes were huge! I thought, with the amount of food we ordered, we could've fed two more people. For the four dishes we ordered, it totalled to $100. If four people were dining, that's $25 a head - not too bad for Korean food though it's not the cheapest either.
Another thing I always cringe when eating out is parking space. The Gaya Applecross is located directly behind Gelare and shares parking spaces with other businesses around it. The spaces were full even though it was on a Wednesday night. Though I was really lucky to find a parking spot pretty much as soon as I got to the area.
All in all, I was quite happy with the food and service. Especially that it's MSG free! I would definitely go back to eat there.
