Enjoy Fresh Seafood at Seajak
Seafood buffets have both strong and weak points: they offer a variety of seafood, but the quality doesn't always match the quantity.
However, visitors can enjoy as much quality food as they like at Seajak, a seafood buffet located near Hakdong Station.
``Seajak'' literally means ``royalty of the sea'' and indeed, the interior brings out the best of its name, with dark purple curtains, gold and khaki tablecloths and even a fancy gondola in front of the gate.
Walking through the booths, guests find a fish tank full of crabs and fish, indicating everything on the menu is made fresh. Instead of frozen goods, Seajak's menu comes straight from the tank, with the exception of tuna.
As soon as you sit down, the waiter gives the guests a couple of gold and silver coins. With the coins, visitors don't have to wait in a
At the salad and soup booths, visitors can find a variety of soups, from Korean traditional porridge to broccoli cheese, vegetable and corn, along with colorful salads.
The sashimi booth was one of the most popular among guests, featuring dishes often hard to find in all-you-can-eat buffets. Tuna and shrimp were some of the favorites. From the basics like flounder to even scabbard fish and mackerel, fans of sashimi can find a variety of fresh and tasty dishes.
Seajak also offers steamy dishes in Korean, Chinese and Japanese styles. The spaghettis, whose sauce's vary in depending on the day, are also popular, made immediately after you order.
Stepping onto the patio, visitors can find a chef grilling steaks and seafood like shrimp and lobster on a barbecue. The patio has a sauce booth, with ketchup, barbecue sauce and other ingredients that will help personalize the dish.
For dessert, guests will find a whole booth featuring cakes, fruit, cheese and drinks. While other buffets offer bite-size cakes and cookies, Seajak offers a big piece of chocolate, tiramisu or walnut cake, complete with ice cream and yogurt.
Sodas and other healthy drinks such as pomegranate juice are free, but some alcoholic beverages like Japanese sake and wines are extra.
