The Kin Korean BBQ & Sushi Lounge held its soft opening Thursday, January 30th, at 6810 Milwaukee Ave. in Lubbock, Texas.

The restaurant was packed at lunch hour, with many tables filled by families and friends trying out their unique all-you-can-eat buffet.

Customers choose from various meats, including brisket, bulgogi and teryaki chicken, and seafood, like spicy squid, spicy octopus and shrimp, which are delivered to their table and cooked in a table-top cooker. There are also several tasty sides, such as kimchi rice, steamed rice, tofu stew, dumplings and fish cake.

Customers cook the food themselves, so Kin Korean is perfect for a date night or long lunch. The whole family can enjoy this unique experience.

They're also rolling out what they call the "Sushi Conveyor Revolution." You can watch and select from sushi as it rolls by on a hi-tech conveyor belt, adjacent to the large lounge which will feature "all the imports, plus Japanese Saki, Korean beer, wine and more," a staff member told us.
