Matt Gill and I revisited B&B African restaurant. I love this place. Great flavors. Although I wish it was all you can eat. It’s $6/lb. I want to try everything and I’m the worst at loading my plate. I put the sauces & curries on my plate first, then I decided to put the rice and couscous on top. What an idiot. I don’t even know what I’m eating by now. Matt did better, but I bet he’s paying for that chicken bone.

Pay by the pound buffets are always a game changer. If it was $10 for all you can eat, I’d probably still eat about 1 pound of food and end up eating a lot more of the cheaper curries, vegetables and rice (stuff I rather eat). Pay by the pound wants me to load the plate full of meat and get my money’s worth. So at $10 All-You-Can-Eat, I’d be eating cheaper food and paying $4 more than I would a $6/lb plate. I could just load the pay per pound plate with food I want to eat and it’ll still be $6, but I still rather go for the value. Funny how the decision making works. Reminds me of this Trolley Killing Moral Dillemna that Todd told me about last night.

When I was waiting for Matt outside, I had to do a double take at the restaurant across the street. Dang.

    bwahaahahaha oh god Rare. I’ve never eaten there but some kids at my school do. I don’t understand how they can afford their prices. It seems silly to spend so much money on a burger in Flatiron when Shake shack is so close by.

    Your post has reminded me that I need to make a stop near B&B African Restaurant. It’s been too long.
