Last week, when Zach Brooks battled the buffet at Todai along with Crazy Legs Conti and other competitive eaters, he said, “It’s no secret that my dream — my ‘goal in life’ if you will — is to strike fear in the heart of every buffet owner whose establishment I step into.” But he’s a little less glib now that International Food House Buffet (sometimes confused with IHOP), has gone from a $8.95 all-you-can-eat special to $5.95 per pound. Definitely the worst news for midtown gluttons since the loss of Cabana Carioca. Competitive eaters, please — sometimes when you beat the buffet, it’s us who end up losing.
Soon There Will Be No Buffets Left to Battle
