Sake Sushi and Korean BBQ

This small town Sushi and Korean BBQ restaurant is definitely a must-visit, but for more conservative spenders, is it worth your money?

I was iffy on sushi at first, but this place changed my mind entirely. This particular plate consists of dragon rolls (raw eel and avocado on top). Although not a fan of the eel's texture, the flavor was decent.

Everyone knows I'm frugal. It's no secret, then, that I like to take advantage of what I perceive to be a "good deal." Imagine my surprise when I'm informed of this all-you-can-eat Sushi and Korean BBQ place across town. Korean BBQ sounded good to me, so with ZERO intentions of trying sushi, and about a month's worth of convincing from my lady, I treated the family to this really nice restaurant and paid $30 each for the four members of my family (lady, two children) to enjoy this "all-you-can-eat buffet." 

Firstly, this was NOT a buffet. They came to the table with one sheet of paper with three check-boxes next to each of the eligible items. I was like, "For the whole table?!?" Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, actually, no. By the time we were finished, we were ready for a good coma. Someone should have told us that sushi is super filling.

We started of with mushroom bombs, teriyaki chicken, and some lobster and crawfish sushi that my family talked me into trying.

👏 NOT. 👏 BAD. 

I enjoyed the sushi so much that we started ordering more. The mushroom bombs were HANDS DOWN the highlight of the meal, and everything else was terrific as well. The Golden California rolls lived up to their Golden name because they were incredible. I didn't personally try the soup because I was already irritated at the fact that I basically paid for Ramen that we could've made at home for a fraction of the price, but it appeared to make my lady happy, so 👍.

To summarize, although not truly a buffet, you certainly get your fill here. It's worth the price, even for the most frugal people, and even more so if you're chipping in with a group of friends. If you're ever in Lompoc, California, stop in and give them a try. It'll definitely be worth your time.
