Eating Big in LA! (Hokkaido Seafood Buffet Review)

NOTE: We’re having some media issues with the pictures… we will get them up ASAP!

On West Pico, near Overland, right next to the Westside Pavillion is a restaurant that most people walk by without noticing. Typically, it’s open 11 am-9 pm, so the hours aren’t extreme. The facility itself is one massive room with tons of tables that allow you to basically dine cafeteria style… which is why it’s so properly named a buffet. Now this isn’t the only location, and the Hokkaido Culinary Group also has Express and Ramen locations (not to mention a few other states throughout the country). Still, if you’re in the Los Angeles area and you really want to fill your stomach this is the place to go and I’ll tell you why! (Especially all you aspiring bodybuilders working out at Muscle Beach)

Price: It’s reasonable. In fact, it’s very reasonable for the selection and quality. You do get what you pay for, so don’t expect the freshest sushi, but you can easily eat well more than what you pay. Regular buffet prices are about $20 a person. You can pay extra for alcohol, etc. 

Who Should Go: People that are VERY hungry. This is a waste for people that enjoy small amounts of high quality food. It does have a very nice laid back atmosphere and the staff is not pushy, by any means, so large groups (families, birthdays, work meetings, etc.) fit in perfectly here.

Atmosphere: It’s a large fairly poorly lit room, which I like. If there are a lot of people the sound is dispersed so I consider it quiet. The tables are in the middle in a circular shaped area and the buffet is the outside wall of the room. 

Selection: It’s a buffet and it has much more than seafood. They have a hibachi station with chicken, shrimp, steak, veggies, and more. They have a whole sushi section with rolls, nigiri, and sashimi. Then, a cold food section with seafood salads, fruits, and ice cream. Next is your typical buffet with rice, hot soups, fried foods, other hot foods. Next is a RAMEN TO ORDER area, which is awesome. Then some more warm food including fresh carved meats and some BBQ selections. It’s a good selection for vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, etc. 

 

 

Bottom Line: If you like to eat, this is a great place to go with some friends or family. I would not recommend bringing a date here for a romantic meal but it could definitely be a fun meal. Plus, the Landmark Theatre is right next door. That would make for a really great dinner and a movie night out. Also, this would be a great place to bring a sports team if you’re a coach, just saying.

Let me know what your favorite big eating place is in the comment section below!

And remember, it’s healthy to eat so stay hungry and fit!

Guide to Hungry and Fit’s Posts

Here at Hungry and Fit, we give you a large variety of posts. From recipes to workouts to movie reviews to video game nerd alerts, we give you it all. However, after some discussion, we’ve decided to bring you more of a “routine” regarding our posts. I’m sure we won’t always follow it, but it will be our guidelines. So now we bring this guide to you. 

Mondays: Entertainment (movies, video games, tech, Weekend in Pictures)

Tuesdays and Thursdays: Related to food–recipes, suggestions, reviews, etc.

Wednesdays and Fridays: Related to fitness–workouts, reviews, advice, etc.

Saturdays and Sundays: Anything or nothing–we could post something random or not post anything at all!

h and f posts

Pretty simple, huh? I’m excited for this. I think it will be a lot of fun for us and for you. We will see how long we follow it and how much we can stick to it, but for now, I’m liking the plan. Hope you are all having a great Saturday. As always, stay hungry and fit!

*Question of the Day: What’s on your agenda for the weekend?
