    What on earth IS a country buffet?

    L.A. has reknowned cafeterias (Beadle's in Pasadena and Clifton's downtown come to mind; branches of a mediocre but Southern-style national cafeteria chain (Furr's); great places to get Mississippi-style meat n' threes (Flossie's in Torrance; the original M&M down on Avalon); and horrid, if authentic, mid-American buffet restaurants (any of the Hometown Buffets).

    There are all-you-can-eat buffets serving Brazilian food (Green Field), Japanese food (ToDai, etc.), Indian food, Filipino food, Thai food, Korean food and several different flavors of Chinese food.

    What do you have in mind?

        Try Aunt Kizzy's in Marina Del Rey. They have a buffet every Sunday. The fried chicken is pretty good and not greasy. The mac and cheese is made with cream -- very rich. Other items include smothered pork chops, greens, and made-to-order omelettes. Save room for dessert. All for about $15 per person, including soft drinks.
