For sushi-starved Canadians who find themselves stranded in Bellingham, WA in urgent need of a quick, affordable and tasty fix of all-you-can-eat sushi, don’t despair! Don’t dial 911-sushi! Don’t resort to eating Mexican! Instant sushi buffet gratification is available near Bellis Fair Mall right smack in the centre of the Meridian Street shopping district.Super Buffet lives up to their name! It really is “super” .. actually I think they could very easily change their name to “Bloody Marvellous Buffet” and it would not be false advertising. These guys serve up a massive lunch and dinner buffet that will result in belt loosening by even the most inexperienced of food eaters and sushi fans.
Super Buffet is an Asian-themed all-you-can-eat house, so the place is not a 100% sushi den. Sushi is an important component of their offering, so those who cannot eat sushi (blasphemy!!!) will be able to tuck in to plenty of cooked foods, top heavy with seafood that would cost a King’s ransom here in Canada.
And I’m talking about if you bought it at Costco or Superstore and cooked it up at home. If you had this calibre of food in a restaurant here in Canada it would knock you back at least $40-$50 a head. On weekends I believe the dinner buffet also includes crab legs.
Super Buffet employs a dedicated sushi chef, and you’ll see him working full bore at his station replenishing all the sushi to keep the buffet plates topped up for the hungry guests. You’ll find an assortment of the usual sushi rolls and nigiri sushi with salmon, tuna, shrimp, scallop, squid, octopus, imitation crab stick, various spicy and non-spicy offerings, as well a tuna or salmon sashimi offering (depending on what day you visit). So the sushi selection is not huge. But it is good and tasty! The quality is good. It is fresh, and it is the best deal for sushi eating you will find in Bellingham, hands down!
I hope you’re sitting down because I am about to reveal the price. Are you ready? Is your car ready? Do you think you are just about ready to make the trip to Bellingham to visit Super Buffet? Here it comes …. five .. four .. three .. two .. hang on, I’ve got more thing to tell you. If you love soft, self-serve ice cream (Dairy Queen or Las Vegas buffet style) than Super Buffet has this too! With hot fudge of course. So after my all-you-can-eat sushi lunch, I enjoyed several visits to their ice cream machine. It was an excellent way to cap a fabulous lunch!
Price my dear boy? Well lunch will knock you back about $8 a person. You’ll have to pay an extra $1.50 for all-you-can-drink ice tea or soft drinks. The dinner price is about $13 a person. Considering that a genetically modified lunch at McDonalds will knock you back at least $5, after which you feel like someone was punching you in the belly all day long, if you hadn’t already made a beeline to loo, for just a little more money you can thoroughly enjoy a fabulous sushi feed at Super Buffet in Bellingham.
In my books: Super Buffet well worth the visit. And I’ll be back! I wouldn’t eat anywhere else in Bellingham. Two fists in the air .. rah rah rah!!!! Sushi Buffet! Sushi Buffet! Sushi Buffet!
