    Sounds about right, Jon :C That's why I avoid them.. plus I don't think they taste very good. I rather go out and spend my money on quality versus quantity.

    I'm not picky about food. One of the most amusing parts of the Chinese buffet near my house was a dish called "crab claws" - literally a ball of fake crab meat with a tiny claw stuck into it.

    I love Chinese buffets. I havent been to one in years though. We actually have a Korean buffet here though and the food is really good.

      I just don't understand why people pay upwards 20 dollars for fake food that you can buy a pack of at the grocery store for a buck or two. The only all-you-can eat places I will go to are Korean BBQ (meat you cook yourself which is mainly marinated korean beef with korean sidedishes) and Japanese (great for sampling sushi or other japanese dishes you haven't tried before.)

      Oh see the good thing about fake buffets like Chinese for me is that they're usually 5-6 bucks. I would NEVER pay that much for such cheapo food, haha.

      Speaking of cheap buffets, I went to the opening of a new Shangri-La Buffet in my area a few months ago and was expecting some really nice, authentic Chinese food and was disappointed to find a tray of chicken that seemed oddly similar in both composition and taste to that of Mcdonalds nuggets. Never before have I not liked humans as much. ):

      You know a buffet is bad when it causes you to dislike the entire human race.

      I haven't been to one in ages. Mainly because the local one isn't exactly the best. I know someone who got a hamburger bun from there that had green mold on it.

      My school is an all-you-can-eat buffet with the meal plan. Their food is amazingggg though.

      Wow, that's one of the first times someone has said that they actually like the food at their school.

      Being homeschooled means I eat pretty much whatever is around the house that I'm not too lazy to cook.

        We have a few buffet restaurants in my place, but my favorite one is Souplantation, which my hometown doesn't have, because of how healthy it is.

          Buffets are a secret pleasure of mine. I love those little sugared rolls you can get at Chinese buffets. I'd pay to eat just a plateful of those.

          I like the 'fake' Chinese stuff you get here in America. Some housemates I had tried out their real Chinese recipes on us and I didn't really care for them. Guess I'm a regular 'Merican after all.

          I like both! My mom made Chinese last night, but idk if it counts as real or fake. She used lots of vegetables and it wasn't fried or salty, that's a good sign right?

            At first glance, I thought you said Mexican! I was all eager to discuss tamales and enchiladas. Mexican food is the best.

            Haha, sorry. I don't do meat, cheese, or cilantro so I wouldn't have much to contribute to that discussion.

            Huh? Like school food? What is this I'm hearing? My school's food has been the darkest hours of my days ever since the sixth grade. ;_;

            No see I'm in college. That means REAL food. Plus I think we're ranked like 9th in food services in the country. :3 I get two all-you-can-eat buffet meals a day, and then 365 dollars of food money to use on any food on the on-campus fast food places - Burger King, Subway, Sbarro, Taco Bell, Au Bon Pain, Starbucks, one or two mini restaurants, and some a la carte places.

            Related: The a la carte store in our science building is named A La Descartes.

            The dining halls at my college were always hit and miss. They always provided a vegetarian option though, which was nice, except when they doubled up their vegetarian and vegan options and tried to make deserts without milk. Let's just say that I don't think brownies were meant to bounce.

            I can't think of anything that's nasty at my school. Not a fan of their fried catfish but I just like my fish healthy so there's that. I don't like Indian nights but I don't think that's because of the school, I just don't like Indian food all that much. >_o

            I never ate my school's food, I always brought lunch, usually a sandwich or soup.

            Ever since the FEAST at Rieber Dining Hall opened at my dorm, I can have all the fake Asian food I want everyday...which is bad. ROTFL!

              I happen to be very picky on what I eat. If I find a food that looks gross, then I reject it.

              I don't like mint and I don't like olives. That's about it on the dislike list for me. Because I'm a pig.
