It looks unprepossessing from the outside, but on weekday afternoons
Arirang House -- not far from the Berklee School of Music -- bustles with the
budget-minded, the hungry, and the just plain curious. They come for the
all-you-can-eat lunch special, which costs $5.99 Monday through Thursday ($6.50
Friday through Sunday) and offers more than 25 Korean- and Japanese-inspired
buffet selections, both hot and cold. Selections change daily but could include
vegetables and rice, stir-fried noodles, fried sweet potatoes, or barbecued
pork and broccoli, all freshly made and replenished continuously throughout the
afternoon. The buffet also includes two soups (usually miso and seaweed), and
chunks of fresh fruit -- usually various melons -- for dessert.
Arirang House, located at 162 Mass Ave, in Boston, is open daily from
11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Call 536-1277.
