Buffets are usually reserved for soon-to-be broke gamblers on bus trips to Las Vegas, where the stretch pants and relaxed-fit jeans can handle the carbohydrate overload. It’s the one time they will bust and not feel like a loser, though the food is often the worst bet in a town where the house always wins. Shying away from the all-you-can-eat establishments has always been a goal of mine, though I have made an exception recently. Todai is not your usual buffet, and that is apparent when you walk in the front door.

My friend and I were ready for brunching on a recent Sunday but not up for spending a lot of money and eating a lot of food. We both eschew buffet troughs, and no matter how much crab I put on a plate, it never seems to justify the $42.95 I paid. Dim sum is another possibility, but we really didn’t feel like fighting the crowds or driving up to Chinatown in Los Angeles. My friend likes Indian food, and I was game for that. I had heard of Punjab Cuisine of India, and we ventured over there.

DINING OUT China Moon, a warm and cozy store front restaurant and buffet on Goldenwest Street and Warner Avenue, offers freshness and friendliness. The attraction here is simplicity. The buffet has no menu -- just labels (thank goodness) above each selection of the double-sided steam buffet. To one side are two big kettles of soup -- egg flower and sweet and sour. Try the mild egg flower with a ladle of spicy sweet and sour to begin with. It's thick enough to stand a spoon in and warm enough to untangle your cares.

Mary Furr Upstairs in the Pierside Pavilion, overlooking Pacific Coast Highway, is Spark Woodfire Cooking. It's the new spot in town to take Dad on Father's Day. The Sunday Brunch ($16.95) is an exceptional buffet spread with the familiar mix of eggs, fruit, pasta and the unexpected salads like mandarin oranges and fennel. Here Dad can have an expansive view of the Pacific from the upstairs patio or inside where the buffet spreads through two dining rooms -- the hot covered steam table just in front of the cooks' open kitchen and the salad, carving station and desserts in the second dining area.

Several months ago, Andrew Pereira gave me a tour in a dark, vast, dirt-floored space. He indicated where the 100-foot buffet and the themed dining rooms would be, as well as the upscale restaurant, and of course, the arcade games and massive laser tag arenas. Last week, we retraced our steps in that space, but things were a little different. Now, there actually was an insanely long buffet, where customers were enjoying Southern food, Mexican food, Chinese food, a carving station with turkeys and prime rib — and lots more.

DINING OUT When you call for a reservation for Sunday Brunch at Pete Mallory's Surf City Sunset Grille, they tell you that the fictitious Pete Mallory has gone surfing in the islands, but they'll take your reservation. And you'll need one for this very relaxed, resort-style brunch. Pulling into the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa, there are columns of cars; a valet whisks yours away and you enter the world of lush resorts. To the right of the luxurious lobby are shops of resort wear, gifts and souvenirs and the entrance of Pete Mallory's Sunday Brunch ($29 per person)

"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.

The smell of a good old, down-home barbecue wafted through the air as people danced to the sounds of rhythm and blues that jolted the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa Saturday at the kickoff of the Blues & BBQ Saturday night concert series. Each summer, Pete's Sunset Grille, located in the resort, hosts a concert series for Surf City locals and guests alike. "We're not trying to create a hotel event, we're trying to create a community event," said David Coonan, executive assistant manager of food and beverages at the resort.
