CHOP Steakhouse & Bar – You’ve Been Chopped

I was in Richmond early one morning in October so I decided to stop by CHOP Steakhouse & Bar for breakfast. I knew that they should be open because I checked their website and it said that they open at 6:30am. So, imagine my surprise when I go up to their restaurant and all the lights are out and the door to their main entrance is locked. I looked around a little more and noticed that they had a separate entrance for their lounge and realized that they only opened their lounge for breakfast.

Duke’s Waikiki and Barefoot Bar (2015)

We’ve been to Duke’s before on our last visit to Waikiki so I won’t bore you with the whole story about how it’s named for Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku, who first brought surfing and Hawaii to prominence. It’s located in the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, which made it very convenient for us on our recent trip.

Mosaic Grille & Bar – Breakfast Buffet Revisit

It never fails for me… I try a restaurant out and enjoy it so much that I can’t wait to revisit… but, for some reason, it never lives up to that first visit. Take, for example, Mosaic Grille. I visited earlier in the year and had a truly wonderful experience with their breakfast buffet. I brought my honey here in September and wound up with less-than-stellar food and service delivery.

Mosaic Grille & Bar – Breakfast Buffet

In mid-November, I found myself on a rare visit downtown and decided to try out the breakfast buffet at Mosaic Grille & Bar.  Before breakfast, however, I had to find the place.  I knew that it was in the Hyatt Regency on Burrard (conveniently located next to the Burrard Skytrain station), but that was it.

Spice Market Buffet (Las Vegas 2013)

We’re not as young as we used to be so we don’t spend as much time at buffets in Vegas anymore.  Still, we felt like we needed to try at least one during our visit so we picked the Spice Market Buffet located under the Planet Hollywood casino.

Saffron Indian Cuisine

To eat AYCE or not to eat AYCE… that is the question.  While you could order off of the à la carte menu, the buffet is a better deal and you get to have a variety of dishes. Read the rest of this entry

Duke’s Waikiki – Hawaii 2013

Duke’s Waikiki is named after one of the most famous Hawaiian citizens, Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku, who first brought surfing and Hawaii to prominence.  Located in the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, this restaurant is very popular and we had a half hour wait to get in at 8:30pm.

Bacchanal Buffet (Las Vegas – Caesars Palace)

A visit to Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without trying out one of the buffets.  Don’t let the pricetag dissuade you, compared to many of the high-end restaurants on The Strip, casino buffets tend to be a bargain… especially when you consider what you get for your buck.
