Sauce does Sushi...

I have been waiting for a week to receive a contribution from Tom "Sauce" Homestead.  Sauce and I met in 2001 during our freshman year at JMU and have had numerous buffet trips, wing challenges, Domino's 5-5-5, and even a "Shaq-off" during our 5 years in Harrisonburg, VA.  Sauce even took part in a Gluten Bowl fund raiser hosted by our Class President at the time, Brian "Godzilla" Hannifan.  I think Sauce's leg of the relay was the 3 ft pepperoni which he took down with ease.
The championship belt,which was awarded after all buffet trips and wing challenges) exchanged hands a few times between Sauce and I, but it seems like Sauce is wearing it again after his lunch at Sushi Park, an all you can eat sushi joint, in Commack, NY.  I am hoping Sauce will continue to contribute to the blog as I am always amazed by his talents and proper instincts. 
For good measure, I have also attached a picture of Sauce and Serious Meat going toe-to-toe all day eat-a-thon during our graduation party in 2005.

"It is only fitting that my first post to Big Country's blog would be a buffet - I always believe in quantity over quality. My lunch spot today was Sushi Park in Commack Long Island. I've been to many buffets in my time, but I would have to say that this is my new favorite. For $20 you can mow down as much sushi as physically possible. I know what you're thinking and trust me the fish is legit - I have never gotten sick or heard of anyone getting sick from poor quality it definitely is not top quality sushi, but its not bad. As you can see from the picture, plate 1 I went all sushi, however they do offer a fine assortment of cooked Chinese dishes if that's what you're looking for (I usually alternate plates sushi/Chinese). One aspect about this place that I really enjoy is that they have a policy that if you don't clean your plate they will charge you extra money - this issue has yet to come up. They can just expect a bill from my Dr. when I find out I have mercury poisoning."

    Mr. Sauce,

    There is also a chinese buffet in Rockland (Hard Wok Buffet in Bardonia) that has a sushi buffet section, and i'll be honest when i say that it is dynomite. $8 for lunch, $12 for dinner gets you all the sush you can mange. The variety is slight (surf clam, tuna, salmon and eel nigri, california roll and spicy salmon roll), but $8 for lunch is awesome. I've been going since high school (7 years ago) and haven't gotten even remotely sick.


  3. Grew up in Commack, never really gave this place a chance even though a bunch of my friends vouched for it. After this review, I'll have to go next time I'm home.

    Thank you lunchoclock.
