When Chinese buffets start going downhill…

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.

    The tater tots and cheese pizza were probably from desperate parents who wanted to go out to eat but their kids wouldn’t eat anything on the normal menu…I’ve been there before.

    So it’s a huge Chinese BUFFET and the spoiled brats can’t find anything to eat until tater tots show up? Who is in charge here???
