This week we venture into a bargain that brings to mind the expression, "Too good to be true". That is exactly what I thought when I heard that we had a restaurant serving all you can eat sushi and sashimi for under $14.00.
Normally I stay away from all you can eat sushi places, the ones I have tried in the past were a disappointment. So when I saw that this place not only had sushi but also served sashimi, (which is sushi without all the white rice,) I have to admit I was skeptical to say the least.
I'm glad to say that we were pleasantly surprised by Jing Du. This local eatery, located at 13300 S Cleveland Ave, Suite 53, Fort Myers was so busy both times we went that the food is very fresh, which is one of the main concerns of "all you can eat" sushi places.
The buffet is quite impressive, not only for the quality of the sushi but they have another section for chinese food too, with soups, (my favorite is the hot and sour) crab rangoon, chicken wings, different stir fries, baked salmon, boneless chicken teriyaki and more and more.
They also have a Hibachi Grill section where you can tell the cook what items you'd like and they prepare a hot dish for you fresh.
We went two times because I wanted to see what the difference was, if any, between the lunch and dinner menu items.
At dinner they offer additional items, like raw Oysters freshly shucked on the half shell, a half dozen of these will cost you quite a bit at other eateries, (but you can have all you care to eat here!) Bone in spare ribs and the sashimi are also only offered on the dinner menu as well.
Then if you still have any room, there's another section just for desserts even Ice cream.....
We recommend going after 4:30 to take advantage of the additional items offered only on the dinner menu for only a few extra dollars, but the lunch was great too.
