Did anyone say all you can eat?

November is here, and mostly all of us are suffering. This month has been known to brutally extinguish any remaining flame that might have been resonating in us from the beginning of the school year. We are all tired, sick, sad, sleepy, and, most of all, hungry. The combination of several exams and papers will make even the most powerful of stomachs a fragile and shattered remnant of its former self. Don’t let your stomach die. Give your stomach that much needed break from $0.25 tuna cans, monster energy drinks, one slice of leftover bread in your fridge (God knows how long it's been there), and trips to McDonald’s (even though you told yourself last friday would be the last time you got drunk and had 5 McDoubles). It is time to scrape up whatever is left of your dignity and treat yourself.

Your body is an island

Start giving it the treatment it deserves. I recommend giving yourself one full day for this activity to recover. “A full day to recover from eating?” you might say. To which I would respond, “Yes.” You need a full day to recover from any all-you-can-eat restaurant. True masters of the “eating until you cannot move” artform are always on the lookout for new spots to satisfy their stomachs. Although I am a fan of Mandarin, that restaurant is now overpriced and their quality has been on a steady decline. What you need is a restaurant with quality food, a wide variety, and entertainment.

My proposition

Chako Barbeque located on 163 York Blvd, Richmond Hill, is that light in the darkness. If you know what Korean BBQ is then I applaud you. If you still have not witnessed its beauty and wholesome fun for the whole family, then I say “welcome.” This is a place where you are able to choose from a wide variety of food whether it is raw beef (steak, strips), raw chicken, raw calamari, raw salmon, raw ribs and raw pork, rice, and a wide variety of vegetables.

Reader: “But Behrad, won’t I catch Salmonella from eating raw food”.

Behrad: “No, my child. Shhhhh. On your respective tables, there is a grill that you can use to cook.”

Reader: “But what if I am too lazy, or I lack culinary skills?”

Behrad: “You can ask them to cook it for you.”

Reader’s pupils dilate, and thus begins the early stages of enlightenment.

Back to why you need to go to Chako’s. Alongside the large selection of food that are marinated to perfection, there is a post-modern decor for all of you who enjoy ambiance with your food. A nice array of black, red, and gold colours are chosen as the primary colours in the restaurant. And finally, it is only 25.99 after 8pm, which is relatively cheap for what you are getting in comparison to other all-you-can-eat restaurants. Give yourself a much needed treat, and thank me later.
