Hibachi Sushi Supreme Buffet

Here is a little secret. I am not a foodie. I am one who enjoys  food that tastes good, regardless of the source. One of my weaknesses is the Chinese buffet, but not just any kind. When I lived in Charlotte I was spoiled by a buffet there called Buffet Dynasty. The food was high quality and there were many new dishes not commonly seen in typical Americanized buffets. There is where I tried my 1st char siu noodle soup. Pure heaven and impossible to find.

I digress. Many people who call themselves foodies would never want to go to any buffet. I think great food can come from anywhere, and pretentiousness is what I like least when it comes to cuisine.

Now for the purpose of my blog article today, Hibachi Sushi Supreme Buffet. The sign caught my eye whilst driving down Clopper Rd in Gaithersburg, I swore I would check it out. I checked it out alright, and returned the next week to check it again. 

Let me say this is the place if you are a steamed crab fanatic like I am. I was floored by the size of crabs they had on the bar. They were not breaded and fried pieces you tend to see at buffets, but whole steamed and seasoned. As a crab expert, I can tell you these are some of the best I have had.

The crabs are great, but it is not the only thing HSSB has going. There are many taste worthy items there. Do not let the name fool you, there is not really hibachi here, more a Mongolian Grill, and it is pretty good, but not why I come.

There is a wide assortment of authentic dim sum, including chicken feet, if you enjoy this treat. There is bao, among others. They have interesting items like cuttlefish, and the Korean galbi, like steak or short ribs, is amazingly delicious. Along this line of carneferific delights, their BBQ ribs are the best I have had at a Chinese buffet.

Seafood is where their treasure lies. They have boiled seasoned shrimp that are monstrous as well as some of the best salt and pepper shrimp to ever tip toe across my tongue. There are even delicious Chinese greens, like Chinese kale or mustard greens.
The sushi bar is huge and provides an assortment of rolls, even sashimi. I tried the raw clam and was pleasantly surprised by the mild flavor. I admit I am not as schooled in the world of sushi, and even I was impressed. 

The desserts are lovely. There is an interesting mix of American desserts with some traditional thrown in, like the sesame balls with sweet bean paste. Very yummy. There is also a freezer that dispenses frozen treats like ice cream bars fruit pops, and ice cream sandwiches. 

Most importantly, the staff is very friendly. They truly want you there. There may be some language barriers, but do not let that blind you to the fact that they really try to make your stay a memorable one. Mine have been.
