@fluke, in my opinion, the question is correct, noun vs. noun, so I don't think it should be 's.

Yeah. But, comparing "salad options" with "fare" is not logical.

Guess, the sentence intended to compare the "salad options" in the current place with the "salad options" in the buffet fare, but failed.

If we turn a deaf ear to that issue, "A" should be the answer.

I think Buffet fare means buffet menu, another type of list, so it should be logical.

Dictionary.com
fare: (Cookery) a range of food and drink; diet; Food and drink;

Yet, I feel "salad options" can't be compared with "the list of options OR even food"

Salad options in place A were better than the food in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than the list of foods in place B.
Awkward.

Salad options in place A were better than the salad options among foods available in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than the salad options in the list of food in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than those in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than place B's.

I thought it was B. But after the explanation provided, agree that it should be A.
