So I was talking to my friend John K this past Friday at happy hour and we had a little debate over a local Chinese buffet that I used to go to years ago when it first opened. I told him I thought it was great and he said it now sucked. His experience has been that Chinese buffets invariably start good, with lots of meat dishes, fresh ingredients and generally a large selection of CHINESE food. Then they all go downhill. So I asked how one knows that they have started going downhill.
He thought for a second and said “As soon as they start serving tater tots… and cheese pizza…”
Hard to argue that.
