Philly’s Buffet – All You Can Stuff Korean BBQ

I somehow ended up at an all you can eat korean bbq spot one night. I wasn’t really prepared for this, but I went along for the ride. It’s in Upper Darby, and the last time I was at this location, it was just a regular korean restaurant. But now, it’s for the gluttons.
It’s straight up buffet style and you can load up on whatever you want. There’s a bunch of different korean banchan dishes, and most of them are only ok. They had my favorite spicy marinated raw blue crab, but it really wasn’t that great. The best banchan they have, by far, is the radish kimchi. It’s really good here! There’s also a few soups. There’s also random chinese and japanese style dishes like teriyaki sicks and lo mein. There are some fruits for dessert and one of the randomest things I found and thoroughly enjoyed – fried plantains. But really, you come here to eat some darn meat.
So you grab whatever meat you want, but don’t make the mistake that some of my tablemates did. They just grabbed giant piles of random meats before really determining what they liked. And remember, you can only cook so much of it at a time, so otherwise, it’s just going to sit at your table. So of course, we got some of the traditional korean bbq short ribs. And don’t worry about doing the cooking because the servers will actually do the cooking for you. They flip the meat, make sure it’s cooked, and cut it into bite-sized pieces for you. So there’s actually very little for you to do.
The rib meat is seasoned ok and tastes ok, but it’s a bit on the thin side. But it does help cook a whole lot faster.
Here’s some of the 6265 lbs of pork belly that we had to cook up. Ultimately, I kept feeding it to H/A and somehow, he was able to eat most of it. It was quite amazing to witness, and also truly disturbing. The pork belly is good, but one should really only eat so much. There was just way too much of it to be healthy.
They also have shrimp!
And also some chicken and plain meat. I think there’s also spicy marinated pork, but I didn’t get to try any of that. The chicken looks a bit odd when raw, and even odder when cooked, but it’s pretty tasty and tender and flavorful. It’s a good place to go if you want to try all different kinds of meat and be a total glutton. If you eat enough meat, it can be a pretty good value too.
