Discussion in 'Restaurants & Buffets' started by lornauk, May 4, 2012.
not seen a thread about this so i just wondered
I think the closest thing to that would be a buffet. They all have carving stations where they will slice some sort of beef roast along with turkey, pork loin or ham. For the better buffets, they will have prime rib as a beef option. There is also Lawry's Restaurant where they will carve prime rib at the table in pretty dramatic manner.
By "carvery" do you mean a Brazilian-style restaurant where meats are presented and carved at your table? Skewers of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, sausage... mmmmmmm...
If so, Pampas Brazilian Grille at Miracle Mile Shops (Planet Hollywood) is excellent.
The OP is from the UK. She means what leo21 describes as a carving station and the answer is yes, practically every buffet will have one. The higher priced buffets will have more selection and better quality meat.
Yes and no...a carvery in the UK tends to have three or more different kinds of meat and a huge selection of vegetables. Essentially it is a help yourself Sunday roast.
Think yourself lucky!!
Someone posted about the Crown & Anchor elsewhere and I remembered this thread.
It's not a carvery per se, but I've been told the roasts are pretty good by some of my mates who've been to the pub for Sunday dinner.
I think I may pop down and try one myself this summer while the Euros are on, that's if England are still in when I get out there
I am also from the UK and wonder why someone would want to travel all the way to Vegas for meat and 3 veg!!!!
having said that as posted all buffets have carving stations just not with your 3 veg and yorkshires
A sunday roast is one of my best hangover cures, although I know what you mean.
Well, the buffets *will* have 3 veg (probably more)....just not the yorkshire pudding So if that's what you're looking for, a buffet will fit the bill.
I'm still not clear if the OP wants meat & veg at a buffet, or wants a sit down meal with meat & veg choices.......
All carvery's in the UK are basically a buffet with choices limited to meat and veg (and condiments). In fact, I'd go as far as saying that carvery is just a posh word for buffet
carvery is just a mini buffet with much less choice- ive had a few carverys in manchester and vegas wins easily.
that sounds much like a Brazian Steak house.
It's the same principle, but a carvery is strictly for roast dinners. Generally you will have a choice of gammon, beef or turkey (usually a set portion) and unlimited vegetables and condiments.
A good carvery here is really something special to me and I used to adore going to them. When I was a child my parents used to take my brother and I a couple times a month, I used to think it was a treat for us but I soon realised it was for mum so she didn't have to do the washing up :evillaugh
I suppose the best comparison to our carvery would be an american thanksgiving dinner as far as contents and I'm wishing I had gotten mum to cook a roast today now....
"meat and 3 veg" is what us english colloquially call a roast dinner it doesnt specifically have to have 3 veg
The buffets will have the veg but they dont taste as good as veg at an english carvery ( I have had hundreds of buffets in Vegas), I have yet to have any decent tasting veg at a buffet except at the Wynn.
An english carvery is essentially a buffet with less choice
