Spoilt For Choice
A buffet is my favourite foodie adventure because I don't have to commit to just one dish from a menu. I can eat as much as I want and I can be adventurous and try new foods. Entrees and desserts are included and it is generally good value for money. It suits all the fussy eaters in my family and I can personalise my food by adding extra things that I like.
But when it comes to choice, Melburnians have it all. Below is a list of buffets in the Melbourne/Vic area that I've put together as a handy reference guide.
