Eat as much as I can as fast as I can.

I just had all you can eat fried fish, curly fries and a house salad Saturday.

I got my $12.99 worth, I'll tell you that much!!

Why do I go to the local Chinese buffet?

They make the best salt and pepper shrimp, period.

I can go down to Chicago's Chinatown and spend $11.95 for a dish of S&P shrimp. Then, I would have to pay for additional sides and the like and will spend a minimum of $25.

At the buffet, I can get a plate of the shrimp, some stir fried vegetables, and some fresh fruit for $12.95.

Most of the other food at the buffet is NOT very good.

Same here, no way I'd ever choose Indian food or even Chinese food over Golden Corral.

I only enjoy buffets to the extent they let me have small portions of a variety of foods, in contrast to having to order a la carte.

The Golden Corral style ones have no appeal to me.

I go for the Salt and Pepper Shrimp, frog legs, green-lipped mussels, and boiled shrimp; I don't touch anything else (including those overcooked crab legs).

The one thing that I hate with the traditional Chinese restaurants is that you cannot get an entree and a vegetable without getting a huge portion of both.

Maybe one of these days, I will get a Chinese cookbook and teach myself the techniques.

Salt and Pepper Shrimp is one of the easiest recipes to prepare. The trick is to find a recipe that uses corn starch if, like me, you like eat the whole shrimp - shell and all.

Way back when I was a college kid, there was a Mexican restaurant not far from campus that had an all you eat menu (but they served you) plus we got a 10% discount with our student ID. On top of that was insanely cheap. Being the little piggies that we were, we'd skip breakfast, skip lunch, and then late afternoon/early dinner time arrive ravishingly hungry. I honestly don't know how on Earth they made any profit whatsoever as we ordered multiple plates and then ate them out of house and home with the sopapillas with honey.
