My home town (Baraboo, WI) recently got a new Chinese buffet. And it is kind of a big deal. We happened to be visiting the week it opened, and when it was up to my brother to decide where we would have lunch, naturally he chose the Chinese Buffet.

I’m not against Chinese buffets by any means, but a) I definitely don’t need to be “all-you-can-eating” (now a verb) and b) in past experiences, the quality just hasn’t ever been worth it to me. But I’m always down for anything, I was just hoping I wouldn’t run into anyone. (There’s just something about a Nutritionist at the Chinese Buffet…)
But you know how that goes in a small town, you always, and I mean always run into someone.

I’m sure I had an egg roll or noodles, but definitely didn’t over do it. Turns out it is possible to survive the Chinese buffet – here are my tips:
