356 BBQ & Bar ($25.99 AYCE) – San Diego, CA

We don’t venture outside of Convoy for AYCE Korean BBQ often. I was surprised and curious when a new Korean BBQ restaurant opened in Mission Valley. The restaurant was brand new, modern, and not AYCE. I should have written ‘but not AYCE’ because Cdj about fainted when he saw the prices here at 356 BBQ… Read More 356 BBQ & Bar ($25.99 AYCE) – San Diego, CA

Brunch

Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

My holy trinity in life consists of all F’s: Faith, family, and food friends. I was determined to visit my family in LA on Christmas Day. My mom is in love with a new restaurant called Big Catch Seafood House in Alhambra. It’s not even an Asian restaurant. We visited Big Catch some weeks ago… Read More Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

Brunch

Karl Strauss Brunch (Sorrento Valley)

I’ve been wanting to re visit the Karl Strauss Brunch for a few months now. My mom took me and Cdj in 2013 and we had an ok time. The all you can eat brunch comes with endless mimosas; a pint of beer; OR a flight of beer. You can’t choose all three but one… Read More Karl Strauss Brunch (Sorrento Valley)

AYCE, Brazilian

Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

I’ve visited Fogo de Chao way more times than I’d like to remember. I was there with family just last Mother’s Day for lunch. Service was great but I think I just over-meated out. The salad bar didn’t seem as phenomenal and the plethora of people at the salad bar made it difficult to enjoy.… Read More Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

Asian, AYCE

Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA

I’d like to think I’m going through a transformation of some sort. Sports used to be such a big part of my life and I’m determined to get back into it. Friends have helped me greatly with this (they know the bone this dog needs to have in order to get fixated again). I’ll share… Read More Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA

Korean

Taegukgi Korean BBQ House ($15.99 AYCE Tuesday Lunch Special)

The gluttony in all of us constantly searches for the unicorn all-you-can-eat Korean bbq. Specifically a lunch AYCE Kbbq. I had seen Taegukgi Korean BBQ House over the years but never tried them as the reviews were mixed. I’d do a quick drive-by peek of their empty patio when I would visit Zion Market right… Read More Taegukgi Korean BBQ House ($15.99 AYCE Tuesday Lunch Special)

AYCE, Korean

Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

My friends and I always complain how there’s no affordable all you can eat Korean BBQs for lunch here in San Diego. We’ve paid the full dinner AYCE price at many places but never felt we ate enough, for lunch, to warrant the $22+ dollars. So I was curious when I kept seeing Roadem BBQ… Read More Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

Mediterranean

Sufi Mediterranean Cuisine ($15.95 AYCE Lunch)

I’m all about all you can eat (AYCE) restaurants here in San Diego. I admit I used to care about quantity over quality. But as you get older (and fatter), you realize quality takes the cake when it comes to an AYCE lunch option. BUT, leave it to the infamous Cdj to totally refute that… Read More Sufi Mediterranean Cuisine ($15.95 AYCE Lunch)

Indian

8Elements (AYCE lunch buffet) – Mira Mesa, CA

I hope everyone had a fattening Thanksgiving Holiday. Taking a week off from blogging felt thankfully lazy. So I’m back ready to blog about an all you can eat (AYCE) Indian buffet in Mira Mesa. I heard about 8Elements some time ago but had no idea who they were and where they were located in… Read More 8Elements (AYCE lunch buffet) – Mira Mesa, CA

Brunch

Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)

I figured out the secret(s) to having a successful Sunday brunch: you must like the company that is sitting next to you; there must be some sort of classy liqueur; and there must be an abundant amount of fresh seafood. Oceana Coastal Kitchen was my answer to ‘Brunch, where’ve you been all my life?’. Their… Read More Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)
