The View has a magnificent view of the bridge and we reserved table #1 for the best vantage point. We saw the extensive buffet they had at lunch and thought they would have the same at night. They certainly did; the buffet was truly enormous (cost per person: KRW 35,200). The advantage of buffets is that we get to try things that we might not otherwise find at a restaurant. For instance we found marinated fish roe at this buffet. Previously we had only seen it sold at fish markets. We arrived at 6 p.m. when they opened and were the first people there. We stayed until 8 p.m. and no one else arrived for dinner. The room was enormous and it was odd and not particularly fun to be the only ones there. The sashimi was the best part of the buffet. There were selections from Korea (of course), a pasta and pizza section, soups, stews, salads, fruit, desserts. Everything we tried was okay except for the tempura which was truly bad having been made hours (or days) before. There was an espresso machine and a soft ice cream machine. We wondered what would be done with all of that food? With our 2 hour meal we had a bottle Spanish red wine called Viña Lambilla (KRW 3,000). We spent KRW 100,400 for the evening’s bridge entertainment. Oh, the Gwangan Bridge light show was merely seeing the purple lights on the bridge—no changing or dancing lights. The taxi back to Haeundae Beach cost KRW 8,400.
