The all-you-can-eat concept is now big business...
There was a time when the all-you-can-eat buffet was a well-loved part of the British culinary scene - think Alan Partridge and his extra big plate - and then all of a sudden it sank almost without a trace. But now it's back and bigger than ever before, with a spate of new openings that are turning heads because of their size and the vast selection of food on offer. The biggest restaurant in the UK is an all-you-can monster, and so is the second biggest. So just what do these gastronomic giants have to offer?

I remember being on Holiday with evening meals included that were buffet style. The food was not that great but people were piling their plates up AND going back again and again. They were eating 5 or 6 portions in one meal.
There was one girl who must have been about 12 and YES, she was fat! On her plate, she had Pizza, Pasta, Rice and Chips and that was it. 4 lots of carbohydrate! The only hint of something from another food group was the topping on the pizza!
Give me a normal "fixed portion" menu any day!
