Jiggle Jiggle Korean BBQ, a Korean cuisine restaurant, has closed.

The restaurant, located at 7133 Columbia Pike next to Giant, served a variety of popular Korean dishes and banchan in a buffet-style setting.

It is the former location of Seoul Garden (which used to be Seoul Bok Doe Gi, according to Fairfax County permit records).

A large yellow and white sign on the door advertises that the location is currently available for lease.

It's unclear when the restaurant closed (a Yelp reviewer noticed the "for lease" sign on the door as far back as October). 

A call by Patch to the property owner last week was not returned.

Tell us, Annandale: Did you stop by Jiggle Jiggle Korean BBQ when it was open? If so, what did you think of it?

Oh, no! That leaves only 17,984 Korean BBQs in Annandale.

I went once for lunch, I didn't notice a buffet. I picked something at random and got some kind of stew thing - not what I expected, not really my thing. I was hoping for dancing girls and piles of meat.

Eric you are sooo right. This town is inundated with what seems like a million Korean BBQ places. The fact more than two or three can remain open is amazing to me. Annandale needs to get rid of several more KBBQ places and replace them with OTHER types of eatery's . Look at Silverado lots of business there and they have no competition whatsoever. The "new" Dice Burger joint will not be a threat either. It's not rocket science. I've said it a million times the CITY needs to recruit new restaurants for all the vacant rentals in this area. Empty buildings invite plight and crime.

KBQ is the business in Annandale and there were many that were more popular. With Fuddruckers all the bars that have closed a casual dining place would well, whether it be a chain or a regional or mom&pop. But honestly, on it's own it won't survive. Someone needs to revive the restaurant row that was between John Marr and five point (Columbia/236/Annandale/Ravensowrth). If that row 5 of 10 of these it would thrive: Olive Garden, Outback, Carabba's, red Lobster, Applebees, TGIF, Ruby Tuesdays, Chili's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Red Robin.

How about bringing in a good semi fast food sit down restaurants like Baja Fresh or Jason's Deli. They are chain restaurant and they offer good food at a reasonably price.

I don't think chain restaurants are the answer, this isn't Oklahoma City or a town in Connecticut. Silerado has no competition because the inch thick layer of salt they put on their food only appeals to old people and old people aren't going to go anywhere new. How about a nice bar with good food, more like DaMoim or Cafe Tu-Ah.

People are lazy... the most successful/busiest places in Annandale are the delivery and drive thru places. With a friendly confine, no one wants to park and go into any of these places. That's more why I was suggesting an area. Places like DaMoim and Cafe Tu-Ah are well represented in Annandale. And most people go around Annandale to go home these days as opposed to through it so sit down places, even casual, have a hard time attracting customers.
