My first Chinese food buffet with my Chinese family.
Believe it or not, this is my first Chinese food buffet with these people, at least!
I have of course eaten at a Chinese buffet before – I believe I may have even gone to one with Abe’s parents. But never with my side of the family – we cook Chinese food at home, or go to Chinese restaurants that don’t have pizza/garlic toast on the menu.
My last visit was so long ago, I can’t even remember what they’re actually like. I may have still been in college?!?
Asia Buffet was a good choice for a large group of 15. I missed Cousin Hannah when I saw this Ambrosia Salad…
…that was part of a salad bar…
…which I mostly partook from. Have you ever seen a more random plate? Everything from Coconut Shrimp to Garlic Noodles and a Fried Banana – I even snagged pickled ginger from the Sushi section!
Also, some General Tso’s Chicken, which I was craving heavily after watching the movie. I don’t even know if I’ve ever eaten this before (I’m sure I must have, but I can’t think of when that might have happened) but I highly recommend it – both the dish and the movie.
My dad passed away 3 years ago today. I wonder if he had ever eaten at one of these buffets. I have a feeling he didn’t.
