Former Old Country Buffet is going to pot in the best possible way
Each week on This Bites , dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.
There’s an old saying about food: You can have high quality or high quantity but not both. Is that a saying? If it isn’t, it should be. But our lead item in this week’s episode could put that thing I might have just made up to the test.
As reported by the Milwaukee Business Journal, all-you-can-eat restaurant KPOT Korean BBQ & Hot Pot plans to replace one of its bottomless brethren, Old Country Buffet, in Greenfield on South 74th Street. The chain’s website says it “merges traditional Asian hot pot with Korean BBQ flavors” while adding “a full bar and nightlife atmosphere.” I'm excited for it. Ann's excited for it (not as much as me, but still).
Continuing that spirit of giving you way more than you need, we cover a particularly long list of culinary items this week, including:
- A closer look at the brick-and-mortar location of Immi’s African Cuisine, which recently opened on North Oakland Avenue
- A little bit of apple appreciation that appeared in the pages of Milwaukee Magazine
- The sixth annual Battle of the Chefs, scheduled to go down Sept. 25 at the Factory on Barclay
- Anodyne Bay View’s upcoming harvest dinner featuring locally grown produce and wine pairings
- The grand opening of MilTex Kitchen downtown on North Milwaukee Street
