The Journey 7155 E. 96th Street
I have read reviews of this joint on the old Urbanspoon and the “new” Zomato. The ones from last year,and earlier: no bueno. The more current ones were much more complimentary. As a matter of fact I had planned on taking my Granddaughter there for lunch prior to viewing the Force Awakens,in IMAX 3D. Time constraints prevented it,we ended up going to some chain place.
Anyway,Pat and I had lunch here today. The building is huge and the exterior does make a dynamic statement. I always find taking pictures of buffets to be challenging. Especially this one as it covers a great deal of territory. Nevertheless. I tried.
This is part of the salad bar; featuring both fruits and vegetables.
These shots are from the Asian station; featuring Teriyaki clams, spicy fried octopus and a nice bone in baked fish, as well as more stuff than I had a chance to name or sample.
They offer a stir-fry action station. That is where you pick your ingredients and they are cooked to order. They also offer a more Mid Western comfort station where your are served ribs and smoked sausages and help your self to the sides.
They also offered a cook to order Udon noddle station;and pizza. Their sushi was what you would expect. An array of nicely prepared rolls relying more on veggies than fish.
I had a marvelous time. The foods I ate were more than satisfactory. I had at least $15 worth of satisfaction for $8.50; less the senior discount. That comes down to $7.85. Hell a salad bar is worth that. Am I satisfied? Yes. Would I go back again? Yes. The only thing negative I can say is that someone burned a batch of the Chocolate chip cookies. You couldn’t tell until you saw the bottoms. Of course the cook knew. Shame.
