Husband is a big fan of Mongolian BBQ. When we discovered an all-you-can-eat place in Manhattan Beach during one of our exploratory drives, he was ecstatic. Big Wok has now become one of our “go to” places for when we don’t feel like cooking and want something inexpensive and filling to eat.
Wok me, Amadeus
This place is pretty popular, especially during the dinner hours. We usually try to get there earlier so that we don’t have to wait in lines to get our food and have it cooked. We’ve never had to wait to be seated and are always greeted quickly by a smiling waitress. Service here has always been great. Parking on the other hand…
New Seoul BBQ
Over the Christmas break, the Husband and I met up with my parents for lunch in Orange County. The last few times we’ve done this, we’ve gone to New Seoul BBQ, an all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ Buffet. The reason…meat-fest!
Unlike Manna, the place we frequent up in LA, New Seoul is a self-serve buffet. This is more convenient since there is no time wasted trying to flag down a waiter and put in an order for meat. Also, New Seoul has a wider variety of choices than Manna’s all-you-can-eat menu. I think the meat is better quality as well. It is more expensive, though. Since my parents always paid, I never got a look at the check but I’m guessing $20ish/pp for weekend lunch.
