Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet   Mr. K and I haven’t really had the desire to eat Chinese buffets in a long time, with the exception of Tomi Buffet in San Jose which has surprisingly high quality sushi.

While the La Jolla location is a fast-casual eatery, the downtown location is quite impressive. The sit-down restaurant consists of two stories, a full bar area, and a patio for dining.
