I think if you are going to write a food blog it is important to be varied and honest in your discovery of different dining experiences.
So here goes. Chinese Buffet.
I am, it’s no lie, not a fan of buffets. I dislike serving myself and the thought that the food could potentially have had an all night party in the steel tins makes me slightly green around the gills!
Saying that when your hungry and it’s open, sat there calling at you. What the hell give it a go.
After been shown to what only can be described as school science high stools, bringing instantly back memories of been told to sit up right with a little wack to the lower back, we moved to the slightly safer school benches.
The waiters, attentive and polite asked immediately if we would like drinks, the conversation went like this.
Jo “Oh yes red wine please and a beer” (the beer was for Kermack, it hadn’t quite got to that time in the day that I ordered two drinks to avoid the wait!)
Waiter “Ah yes white wine”
Jo “No sorry red wine”
Jo ” red”
I was about to play wine charades when he got it!
The buffet experience in this restaurant I found entertaining to say the least, with commentary from Kermack about what each dish could potentially be made from. Ranging from next doors cat to my all time favorite the classic Chinese dish, pigeon penis. My stomach hurt from laughing more than hunger which is always a result.
The food was pretty standard take away fare, all piled up fighting to be eaten, on one smaller than average plate.
I advise if you fancy a Chinese buffet this one is probably not the best unless you like pigeon penis and white wine served with an included over rated service charge.
