Busan Pizza Buffet: Pizza Mall Busan Hadan Art Malling Branch

Pizza Mall is one of the buffet brands operated by Eland, a subsidiary of the Eland Group. Among these, Pizza Mall was the first brand launched in 1994, known for offering a wide variety of pizzas.

For our final meal during this trip to Busan, we chose “Pizza Mall.” You can find Pizza Mall in the “Art Malling,” a shopping mall near “Hadan Station” in Busan.

You can find Pizza Mall on the 16th floor of the Art Malling building. Be careful to enter through the opposite elevator, not the one facing “CGV.” Although it appears to be one building, it is actually divided into two.

Initially, we used the elevator on the side where CGV is located. Even after reaching the 16th floor, we couldn’t find anything and were puzzled. Upon reexamination, we realized that we needed to use the elevator on the adjacent side.

Please note that on the 7th floor, there is a passageway connecting the two buildings, allowing for an elevator transfer. Thanks to this, we were able to go down from the 16th floor to the 7th floor, switch elevators, and return to the 16th floor.

At Pizza Mall, you can enjoy a buffet of various foods, including pizza and salads. It’s a place where you can indulge in a wide variety of pizzas, making it especially appealing to pizza enthusiasts.

In addition to pizza, you can also find pasta, tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes), fried rice, salads, and other dishes. So, it’s not just about unlimited pizza.

“Pizza Mall Prices”

The prices are per person. On weekdays, it’s 9,900 KRW, and on weekends, it’s 14,900 KRW. While the prices are not overly expensive, they are not particularly cheap either.

Considering the recent rise in prices, if you compare it to the cost of trying different brand pizzas, paying 14,900 KRW for unlimited pizza seems quite reasonable.

“Overall, the food is on the salty side”

Of course, there were some drawbacks. I’m not sure if Pizza Mall tends to serve salty food due to their emphasis on American-style pizza, or if it’s because the food in Busan is generally on the salty side. However, most of the food I had at Pizza Mall was remarkably salty.

While salty food can be delicious, it did feel excessively salty. From the perspective of those selling the food, they may intentionally lean towards making it saltier overall. Still, it was a place where I felt the food was overly salty.

Additionally, as it’s located on the 16th floor of a shopping mall, it took a considerable amount of time to go up and down in the elevator. If you’re traveling in a group, it’s worth considering that it may take a long time.

“Parking Space”

There is parking available, but there is a height restriction of 2.1 meters, so larger vehicles cannot enter the parking lot, which can be a disappointment. Since there are no places nearby where large vehicles can park, it could be a source of frustration for group tourists.

“Surprisingly, you can see the sea view from the window seats.”

Depending on the seat, there can be a difference, but you can actually enjoy a view of the sea in front of Busan from the window seats. Of course, the sea doesn’t come into view all at once, and it’s just visible in the distance, so it’s a bit disappointing.

Despite this, it was a place where we could wrap up this Busan trip with a buffet meal, filling our stomachs and easing any lingering regrets from the journey.
