Last Sunday, we had lunch at the China Buffet Palace. I really wish they would just drop the “China” from the name or replace it with “Asian” since the food selection is indeed Asian, mostly Japanese and Chinese and a little bit of Vietnamese, Thai and Korean.
We are Japanese food/sushi fans, including my 3-year old daughter. For starters, I had a sushi feast…
I’ll be first to admit that these are not Japanese restaurant authentic, but they are not bad at all. And as you can see, they have quite a selection. In a Japanese restaurant, a plateful of sushi would cost more than the buffet price we paid per head. Hee hee. I was very pleased indeed. Forget “authentic”! ;)
I liked the small crabs, cocktail shrimps and the crab salad…
Hubby and I agree that the chicken teriyaki and fried chicken wings are good, too. Not the quality you would expect from a buffet place. Hee hee. And the cheesy baked mussels do not disappoint!
Hubby had pretty much the same food I had, except he had the Korean barbecue beef ribs…
I used to eat that, too during my red meat eating hey days. Nowadays, I’m happy to just take a photo. :D For dessert, I had fruits…not! This is just for show. Hahaha. I did eat a few pieces of honeydew and the watermelon. They were ripe and fresh and very refreshing.
I would pick the sinful desserts over fruits any day. However, it’s with the cakes where this restaurant really fell short. They were dry and crumbly. I like my cakes soft and moist.
China buffet palace has a very good selection of food, from the soups, to the appetizers, to the “main course” hot dishes and desserts. At $10.95 per person on weeknights and weekends ($7.95 for weekday lunches), I say we got more than what we paid for. Kids price is $3.95. We’ve been here so many times before. And we’ll keep coming back. :)
Enjoy the rest of the week!
