A new buffet hut on the outskirts of Halifax is being touted as the ultimate dining experience, complete with a huge selection of fresh seafood and a large selection of steaks.
But there’s one catch.
It’s not for the faint of heart.
The hut’s menu is being advertised as a place where you can indulge in the comfort of a table with no plates and only a few chairs.
In reality, it’s a small space where you will find yourself on your knees in the dark, eating at the mercy of the birds and the flies, according to food critic Lin’s grand feast.
Lin’s menu includes a lot of fish that are usually available in small batches at most restaurants, said food critic and blogger, Lisa McLean.
And, as far as she can tell, there’s not much meat on the menu.
“It’s like having a buffet in a small room where you’re only able to see one or two of the fish,” she said.
“It’s a pretty basic buffet.
It doesn’t have anything really to stand out about it, so you just have to try it.”
McLean says she had to be patient while trying to eat her way through the buffet, and the food didn’t come to her until the second or third try.
“You’ll have to ask around,” she says.
“People don’t have the patience to wait for the best dish.
I’ve been to places like this, and they were amazing.
I don’t know how they get the time in their life to put this together.”
The new huts will open in the fall.
