"The buffet will be about 100 feet long and will extend down that way."
Andrew Pereira, a local entrepreneur, is guiding me through the vast space of a single-story structure that seems to stretch for miles. The building is adjacent to the Thomasville Home Furnishings store at 7227 Edinger Ave. in Huntington Beach, and though it is hot and sunny outside, inside it is cool and dark and small earthmovers are clearing mini-mountains of dirt.
Construction workers are making like busy bees throughout the complex, welding, hammering, sodering and, in general, converting the empty space into something Pereira hopes will help transform the city — or at least this part of the Edinger corridor.
But I ask to ask again. A 100-foot buffet?
I heard right.
Welcome to the extreme (and extremely big) world of Endless Food & Fun (EFF), which opens this fall. The brainchild of Pereira (who lives, along with his wife, Bettina, and two teenage sons, in Huntington Harbour), EFF, by design, will be unlike any other establishment here in Surf City (or any place else, for that matter).
