forgot to mention that a group of us had food poisoning from buffetland in k-town a coupla weeks ago. out of seven of us, four were laid up for a day and had lingering effects for three days. couldn't identify what the culprit dish was, since there were about 40-50 types of dishes and the chowhounds of the group tried practically every single one. *grin*
i still loved the food we had. the tea and pumpkin/squash soup were phenomenal. and all the various marinated veggies were excellent. it was a great birthday party...sort of. if you go, perhaps avoid the mussels and clams -- you'll still have plenty to eat.
