Bono Bono the best seafood buffet in Seoul?

My wife and i ate at Bono Bono twice last year. The first time i went, i didn’t expect much. I figured it would be like Todai. Cheap and low to medium quality sushi. I also figured it was going to be crowded and noisy.

I was surprised when i walked in. The place in Samsung was really nice. It wasn’t too big. It wasn’t too crowded. It was rather classy. That’s saying a lot for an all you can eat buffet. Buffets aren’t really good spots to take a lady friend on a date. At least not in the beginning. But i would totally recommend Bono-Bono.

The sushi is fresh and they keep cutting them up. So you won’t see old raw fish laying around. The other fillers are rather good. Shrimp tempura was my fav. They don’t have a large selection like say Todai, but the quality is higher.

You can even get your drink on. They have all you can drink house wine. Red and white. Classy!

Price is a little high. We dropped 41,000 Won each. Thats the price for dinner and on the weekends. Weekday lunches are 31,000 Won. Still high.

But all things considered, it’s a good place to grub on fresh sushi and sip on some wine. Crab legs are pretty good here too. I’ve been to Bono Bono twice already, but i’m sure i’ll stop by a few more times before i head back to the States. One of my favorite Restaurants in Seoul.

In n out burger sold out in Korea

I mentioned in my last blog post that in n out burger was promoting out here in Korea. They are doing this to gain global recognition and thwart copycats like Caliburger. They had an event today in Apgujung galosook. Turns out that they sold out in 15 mins. My sources confirm.

That’s what a hamburger is all about. Guess Koreans are crazy for In n out.

In n out burger in Korea?

Can this be true? In n out is running a promo in Korea? I’m thinking it’s fake. Either a guy is using in n outs logo to promote his clone burger joint or it’s a great marketing tool for a new biz or whatever.

If in n out won’t open restaurants in Chicago or NYC why Korea? Doesn’t make any sense.

Too good to be true but gonna send someone out to investigate.

P.S. Just confirmed reports that they did this in Hong Kong. Looks legit! And the Facebook page for in n out confirms this.

Might be real after all. In n out is testing put Seoul South Korea!

My thoughts on Fatburger in Seoul

When i first heard that Fatburger opened a restaurant i was elated. I had to have it. I had to try it to see if it was the same as in the States. Fatburger isn’t my favorite hamburger joint. It’s prob 4th or so. In n out, Tommy’s, and five guys. Maybe props out to shake shack in NYC. (but I’m a cali boy)

But the egg really does make a difference. I can’t eat fat burger everyday like in n out, but i do love to get my grub on.

Fast forward to fatburger in Seoul. I get there and its totally empty. I took my baby and my baby mommy with me. We met up with 5 other friends. The restaurant had a total of 9 people there. Damn shame.

The burgers were great. Just like in the States. But, very very very expensive. Very. That’s 4 verys!

I used to think that i would totally spend 20k won on a in n out burger. Wrong. I would probably get it once or twice. But for 20 bucks, i’d get something else. A hamburger is not worth 20 bucks. Even in n out.

I ordered two combos and the bill came out to 30 plus. Anyway, fat burger will close down in a years time. Damn shame.
