A huge craving for crab legs has led me to the nearest seafood buffet I could find, Makino Sushi Seafood Buffet in Irvine. A bit pricey – $27 a person. Eek! But I figured with the pending large amount of crab legs I was about to consume, it’ll be worth it. 🙂 And I have to say the crab legs were not bad at all. I like the fact that they were hot-to-warm rather than frozen cold like other buffets (even some Las Vegas ones). The claws were pre-cracked, making it easier to crack open with a nutcracker. And the legs were soft enough you can rip them apart with your fork.

This buffet restaurant has more selections than I expected. They have both cold and hot seafood items, deep fried items, made-to-order udon, and a buffet line just for sushi. Here are the yummies:

Fresh raw oysters on a bed of ice, topped with green onions and fish eggs. I didn’t really like these oysters. They tasted a bit …fishy, even with hot chili sauce.

Sauteed shrimp, salmon, and butter garlic clams. All tasty. The shrimp were huge. Salmon was not too dry and clams were very buttery.

Other hot seafood items available for dinner: seafood fried rice, stir fried noodles, mussels, fried tempura squid, shrimp, and vegetables. All yum, though I tried really hard not to fill up on these so I’d still have more room for even more crab legs!

This was all the I could take in after those crab legs. Eating sample-size food is my way of enjoying a buffet without overeating. 🙂

This was my friend’s various sushi plate that she organized so nicely to make for a good picture. 🙂 Overall, their sushi is average. Some rolls and sashimi are better than others. Probably not the best sushi I’ve ever had. But I would say it’s good for a buffet price.
