One place we go to when we crave seafood in Torrance is Vegas Seafood Buffet. It’s inspired by the variety of buffet restaurants in Las Vegas, and, in fact, I find it better than some of the ones you’ll find in Vegas. They offer about 150 selections in the buffet ranging from seafood, teppanyaki, churrasco, sushi, salad, fruits, poultry, meat and dessert.
They’re located at the Del Amo Fashion Center right across from BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. My relatives always take us here because they know how much our family loves seafood. We’ve only been here for dinner ($21.95) so I’m not sure how big a difference it is with lunch.
I usually go for my usual favourites here: raw oysters, baked scallops, baked shrimp, roast duck and prime rib.
Surprisingly, their salmon sashimi is pretty good too, but you have to be picky. Travelling Foodie Tip: look for the pieces with lots of white as they are most likely salmon belly! Their roast duck is meaty, juicy and has a nice crispy skin. The baked scallops aren’t ones with big scallops in one shell, but a bunch of smaller scallops in the shell – they’re still good but try to remove some of the cheese as it becomes too much after a while.
For crawfish lovers, they actually serve it as well, but I’m just too lazy to be eating them.
Their teppanyaki has a good selection too: salmon, chicken, steak, veggies, shrimps, noodles and a variety of veggies.
For desserts, they have soft serve ice cream, chocolate fountain, creme brulee, creme puffs and more.
