We had our Thanksgiving feast on Sunday, but still wanted something a little special for dinner on Thursday. We had seen giant restaurants (the size of a city block) with a cow logo as we were driving around . Thursday we saw one not too far from our apartment and decided that this was the day to try it.
This place seats 200 or more (the photo shows only part of the restaurant). It is a giant all you can eat restaurant. They have steak on sizzling iron plates, Mongolian grill, sushi (not very good), noodle soup (very good), teppanyaki, fruit and salad, cake and ice cream. We even found glazed sweet potatoes! Dan met the younger brother of one of his students (a fourth grader) who graciously showed us around and told us how the place worked.
I think some of our best traveling meals have been at buffets – huge Amish buffet in Pennsylvania, theme restaurant in Mumbai with regional specialties and entertainment from all over. There’s something about a buffet restaurant that leads people to help out newcomers and recommend their favorite dishes. Plus you get to try a little (or a lot) of everything.
It was a lovely meal.
