Since opening their first Izziban location on Sand Lake, the brand has expanded into the further reaches of Orlando to a Metro West location and an East Colonial location. We visited the East Colonial Izziban.

The Izziban "lakeside" location on East Colonial opened its doors in 2015 with a lakeside location that is very spacious and allows guests to get a true experience of Korean BBQ with a more social and engaging dinner experience.

Izziban offers both marinated and non marinated selections of meat, all steeped and cut in house that includes unlimited sushi, a variety of appetizers and a salad bar/buffet. There are three pricing options if going for the KBBQ, one option is $18.99 that includes 3 meats, next one is $21.99 for 10 meats, and finally $32.99 for 14 meats.

The $32.99 option includes filet mignon, ribeye steak, rib fingers and marinated sirloin to name a few. With all three options, you can request as much as you can eat, but do be forewarned, if you order another round of meat and fail to eat all of it, you will be penalized. A half pound of leftover meat will result in another $32.99 charge.

With the concept of "Banchan" meaning "side dishes" in Korean, Izziban provides the most flexible meal that everyone can enjoy. From varieties of meats to grill, to side dishes like gyoza, sushi, yakitori, Spring rolls, and all of the buffet items, there is something for everyone.

Even if grilling your meat at your table does not appeal to you, they have a very good selection of noodles, like Yaki Udon, Yaki Soba, Miso Ramen and a variety of specialty entrees. They serve Bibimbop, Katsu Curry, Bulgogi, Galbi and Bento Boxes as well as having a decent Sushi selection.

While we waited for our seats, we hung out at the bar and ordered some Spring Rolls with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.

Speaking of the bar, they have an amazing selection of Korean beverages like Cass Fresh Beer, and Chum Churum Peach Soju. Soju is very similar to sake and is made from rice, but has more water and a higher alcohol content. What's even better is when you combine a Cass Fresh and a Peach Soju, and at Izziban they give you measured glasses just for that.

We opted for the $21.99 option with 10 meats, that also includes sides like these wonderfully pan fried Gyoza with a sweet and savory sesame dipping sauce.

The Volcano roll was pretty good, again this an included side dish, and you can have as much as you want and order a variety of different rolls.

A sampling of items available from the buffet....fried rice, fried calamari, sesame balls, and chicken skewers. They have all the miso and clear soups at the buffet plus a salad bar and dessert bar with a chocolate fountain.

Cooking Beef Brisket and Marinated Spicy Chicken on the BBQ grill. The $21.99 option includes Beef Brisket, Regular and Spicy Marinated Chicken, Fresh and Wine Pork Belly, Pork Jowl, Oyster Blade, Marinated Sirloin, Regular and Spicy Marinated Pork.

While each location has its own distinct appeal and personality apart from the others, all locations offer affordable lunch specials, unbelievable happy hour deals, and a full bar.

The All-You-Can-Eat menu and inclusive selections may differ by location and price options. The buffet selections may change seasonally and will only be included as a portion of the All-You-Can-Eat BBQ purchase.

Izziban East Colonial is open Monday to Sunday from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm, with various rotating specials and happy hours throughout the week.

Buffet’s usually get a bad rap, and with good reason. Most of them offer large quantities of food at a decent price, but the food is usually two grades above slop level. I've always held to the idea that a high quality Vegas style buffet would do well in Orlando. One with quality selections of chef carved meats and live action chef stations with enticing sides like one might find at the Bellagio. Fred’s Market isn't quite on that level, but what it does do, it does fairly well.
 

Fred's Market Restaurant serves up a taste of farm to plate freshness, with food that is slowly cooked in a natural and unprocessed way. The restaurant aims to provide a cozy atmosphere full of warmth and fun. It's southern comfort food that's pure and hearty all the way to the core.
 

The buffet for dinner is full of traditional southern fare like Fried Chicken, Pot Roast, Pulled Pork, Chicken Pot Pie and a host of sides like Mac & Cheese, Collard Greens, Mashed Potatoes, Fried Green Tomatoes, and of course an extensive salad and soup bar with a dessert bar as well. Fred’s also offers a weekday and weekend breakfast buffet as well, with biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and you can even get the famous fried chicken in the AM.

Fred's Market took over the recently closed Romano’s Macaroni Grill. aside of a few touches here and there, the inside and outside is relatively unchanged from the previous tenant.

The salad bar has something for everyone.

There are plenty of fresh fruits and an assortment of fruit and vegetable salads on the buffet. I really enjoyed the broccoli salad, as well as the apple raisin salad.

All of the food I tried was pretty good, but the Fried Chicken here is the star of the show. Dare I say…it could be some of the best fried chicken in Central Florida?

A variety of southern comfort side dishes.

It doesn't get any more southern than banana pudding, red velvet cake and pumpkin pie.

Here is a loaded plate with fried chicken, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and a fried green tomato.

Overall, I was very impressed with the food at Fred’s Market. All of the food was fresh and seasoned very well. If you are looking for some good southern comfort food at an affordable price in a family friendly atmosphere, stop by Fred’s Market.
 

Fred’s is open Monday to Saturday from 7:00am to 9:00pm, and Sunday from 8:00am to 9:00pm
