Not sure if this should go on Philly or Mid-Atlantic Boards, but since there's so much overlap on the users, figured Philly was the best place to post this latest find.
I though I had found the deal of the summer last Friday when I scored some half-off amazing prepared fresh fish at Under the C before I toddled off to my train...but yesterday I beat it - and it wasn't even a "special".
While doing some "back to school" shopping in DE, I got a bit peckish and stopped at Hibachi Sushi & Supreme Buffet Inc. for lunch on a friend's suggestion. It is located by the river in the same shopping center as the Shop Rite grocery store (I think it's Walnut, but may be wrong). The buffet is the most amazing Chinese/Japanese/American style buffet I have ever seen. There were more than 100 items, and it ran the gamut from soups, salads, fish, pork, chicken, clams, standard chinese dishes to freshly prepared sushi - and I mean freshly prepared - I watched them as they made my dragon roll and was sure the tip the sushi chefs before I left. There is also the buffet of raw ingredients from which you can pick and choose, and the will grill it for you at the hibachi for no extra charge. I nibbled at from about 7 options (plus some sushi), but I hardly did it justice!
I wasn't interested in desserts so didn't try any offerings, but they had a decent looking selection of one-bite pastries, jello, puddings, and hand packed ice cream (no wimpy soft serve machine here!). Seriously - this was very good food - not fancy gourmet, but varied, fresh, flavorful, and it was all constantly being refreshed. Nothing I tasted was disappointing, stale or bland. The space was spacious, clean and if not decorated to my personal taste, was well appointed.
Oh...and did I mention lunch was $6.99? Yep...less than 7 bucks...and dinner is only $9.99. If I worked in downtown Wilmington, I would have my very own reserved booth with my name engraved on the back. I will definitely add it to my regular stops when indulging in some tax-free shopping. This may not be a place you go to DINE, but it is a place you go to EAT, and EAT WELL.
