The Duel At Hokkaido Seafood Buffet in Falls Church


My friend Mike, who is not really fat, said he wanted to go back to Hokkaido Seafood Buffet in Falls Church, Virginia tonight. So I didn't eat much today.

I knew what was gonna go down.

Hokkaio Seafood Buffet has Chinese and Japanese food and all that usual buffet-type stuff for about $20.00 per person (plus extra for a soda) but I tend to only visit the sushi table with a single-minded intensity when I go to this place; why look at General Tso's chicken when there's eel to be had?

Mike hits the crab legs like a guy who's never had them before.

I took a camera this time so that I could chronicle the mayhem.

This all went down in about 2 hours.

I may not eat again until Monday morning.

My first plate: eel, tuna, some kind of roe, shrimp, and so on...

Not so much Mike's first plate as Mike's first course...

The mess after Mike's first course...

My 2nd plate. More eel, fake crab, red snapper sashimi, tuna sashimi, and salmon sashimi...

Mike found the raw oysters!

Mike had more crab legs too...
And something resembling a very rare steak...

And he had some Mongolian BBQ (here called teppanyaki but the same idea as other buffets)...

My 3rd plate. More eel and shrimp and tuna and so on..

Mike at work...

I'm done. My final plate. Eel pieces numbers 22, 23, 24, and 25!

Mike finishes off the evening with some watermelon and ice cream...
