Potter Village will soon carry the smells of a fusion of Japanese, Chinese and American cuisine with the return of a buffet.
Asian Buffet, 1114 Oak Harbor Road, will take over the former Wang’s and Xian’s Buffet at the shopping complex, with a lofty goal of offering all types of food along with healthy options in a buffet style.
Manager Tyler Liu is bringing the buffet concept of the Tiffin restaurant to Fremont after Fremont residents visited his Asian Grill Buffet location.
The new Asian Buffet in Fremont will open Oct. 14.
A buffet 200 items strong
“We’re going to try some new stuff, we’re going to try different items,” Liu said. “We can hold over 200 items (on the buffet).”
The menu will feature stir fry, chicken teriyaki and other proteins and vegetables along with a healthier option with a hibachi grill on site that will keep options limited on the oil used to prepare proteins and vegetables.
Liu said the hibachi grill is a popular staple at the grill in Tiffin and was a must for Fremont and will be included in the cost of the buffet.
Liu said he has been preparing the new restaurant since around June when the lease was signed in order to prepare for an October opening.
He said the restaurant will employ seven-12 people once it is up an operating.
The buffet will be open 10:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
