Choice Buffet Restaurant: Our Family Favorite Authentic Korean Grill, Hot Pot and Buffet (Closed)

Choice Buffet Restaurant is our family favorite when it comes to an authentic Korean grill (bbq or bulgogi), hot pot (shabu-shabu) and buffet.  But, they are not limited to Korean, there are Japanese dishes as well.

We've been coming back to this place since it was first established many years ago.  My family actually  prefers this over the more popular Yakimix.   We've always felt that this place is underrated by many perhaps due to lack of marketing.

choice buffet
Each table has its own table-top electric stove for the hot pot (shabu-shabu) and a griller.

Korean grill (bbq or bulgogi) Station

They have a wide range of marinated meats.

The only problem we usually encounter when dining here is not knowing which is which.  I've been hoping they put a label on each item...

What we love about their meat is that you can choose how much marbling you want unlike other buffets where meats offered are more on fats than meat.

Have your grill buttered from time to time so your food won't burn easily...

Hot Pot (Shabu-Shabu) Station
choice buffet
The hot pot (shabu-shabu) station is massive in terms of variety but don't expect much for the quality of the fish cakes, squid balls and fish balls.  I recommend the fresh mussels, seafoods and vegetables from this section especially the shitake mushrooms.
