This Sizzler location is located in just outside Hyehwa station (Line 4, exit 1). It's in the same building as Bennigan's, which is located two floors below. Are you ready to witness another buffet marathon by Gdog? Here we go...
Look for this building as you leave exit 1 at Hyehwa station. Get out and walk straight about 100 meters.
At first, we were going to order items off their lunch menu (which includes the salad bar) but the lunch specials are only valid Monday through Friday. So we went with the salad bar, which is priced at 19,500w ($20US) plus the standard 10% VAT (Value Added Tax; an auto-grat added to your final bill--there's no tipping in Korea). The salad bar here was fully loaded: a variety of salads, fruit, a beef fajita station (with fresh salsa, guacamole, and sour cream!), soups, chicken wings, bread station, ice cream station, pasta station, and some incredible chicken wings!
If you're considering ordering a steak at Sizzler, here is their "Degrees of Deliciousness" chart for your convenience. Yes, I did in fact just type "Degrees of Deliciousness".
Every time I visit a buffet in Seoul, I end up stuffing my face full. It's a lot of fun and I recommend that you give it a try (thank goodness for Hyundai Fitness Gym!). Here's plate number one--it's a bit messy as I was overly excited with all the food. Notice the two scoops of salad...one is sweet potato salad:
Plate number two: Here, I tried to be a bit more civilized and did not overflow my plate (I was determined to pace myself, hehe). We have some nachos with beef, fresh salsa, guacamole, and sour cream; sliced tomatoes with mozarella cheese and black olives, mandarin salad, one spring roll and again, two more chicken wings:
Plate number three...here we weave some garlic toast, some sort of cheese bread, a fully loaded potato skin, chicken and pineapple salad, some rice pilaf, and two more wings (the wings were absolutely incredible--crispy and the meat literally fell off the bone; the added honey mustard sauce was the cherry on top):
Plate number four: here we have a fully loaded beef fajita--it deserved its own plate:
Plate number five: let's have some salad, shall we? More mandarin salad, some celery and artificial crab salad (it was the first time I've had celery in months), and a green salad with some peaches I stole from an adjacent salad:
Plate...err, dish number six: at this point in time I'm asking myself...should I go on? I am pretty stuffed right about now BUT a salad bar buffet is not complete until I've experienced the ice cream. So, I made my own sundae with the addition of some cut up bananas:
Plate number seven, the final plate: We have some pineapple, slices of grapefruit, mandarin orange segments, grapes, and slices of orange. Right now I was going to explode. If I remember correctly I might have even loosened my belt (and undid a few buttons to my jeans).
Sizzler was downright awesome. If you are looking for a little taste of home, the salad bar buffet here definitely is worth your time. There were so many dishes on the salad bar, I don't know how some people can eat a steak WITH the salad bar too. There are eight Sizzler locations in Korea, with at a few other locations in Seoul. You can find the other locations here (it's in Korean). Are you hungry yet? My stomach hurts just from looking at all that food again! *burp*
