Fat tuesday is always a day to eat whatever you want and however much you can eat. I intended to make the most of the day since the next day would be Ash Wednesday. A mark to signify the beginning of Lent.
My mom and I ventured into Kyoto Seafood Buffet on Glenoaks, Blvd in Glendale, CA. I have a love/hate thing about buffets. Depending if the place is good or not, I end up wanting to try everything. The place is nice and spacious.
We arrive just before the dinnertime rush, so we were able to get some nice seats at a booth. Brightly lit. Servers come to take your drink order and let you loose onto the buffet. It's funny I'd see people going back three, four, five times. Some carrying platefuls of crab legs and other items. That's what you get when it's "all-you-can-eat"! I went for two and half rounds. I like to try pits and pieces of what seems to interest me at the moment.
They had a nice wide selection. Chow mien, wantons, peking duck, stuffed shrimp, stuffed mussels, fish, mushrooms, sweet potato tempura. All this on plate #1.
Plate #2 consisted of a sushi variety (which are freshly made by a couple sushi chefs stationed by them) seaweed salad, Kimchi, baked stuffed mussel, cream cheese wontons. There was still another section of the place I didn't get to try like whatever was served at the grill station and the miso soup.
Of course one can't leave a buffet without having some kind of dessert. I opted for a couple strawberries, jello, a cream puff, and a cake roll. I'm usually big on dessert, but at that point after two rounds I didn't want to push my luck.
I'd definitely come back again and try out more of the foods I didn't get a chance to try. Considering, I tend to be picky about buffets this is one worth going back for.
