We love a good buffet. Doesn't everyone? But perhaps what we love most about buffets is that they're no longer the flavorless American feeding troughs of our youth. In DFW, some of the best buffets are filled with vegetarian food, Indian cuisine and even Persian fare. If you're hungry — like, really hungry — check out a few of our favorite buffets right now.
This posh (well, for a buffet, anyway) Irving buffet is filled with flavorful Indian dishes such as Tandoori chicken, vegetable uttapam, vada (Indian fried doughnut), aloo gobi, chicken 65, goat curry and samosas.
International Buddhist Progress Society
If you're looking for a cheap, fast vegetarian lunch, hit up the dining hall at the International Buddhist Progress Society, tucked away in a Buddhist temple inside a Richardson office building. For just $6 (cash only), you can fill up on vegetables at this modest but tasty meat-free buffet.
