Today the Fork You crew enjoyed lunch at our old favorite, China Buffet. But today we ate lunch in their new diggs: the revamped and remodeled shops at the former Kanawha Mall.
The old location is being torn down and the restaurant was closed four days this week while they moved all the furniture and equipment from the old space to the new.
The new space is bright with a large skylight in the center of the main dining area. There is a long stretch of buffet bins for desserts, chilled shrimp, sushi, and salad bar items. In addition, there are four smaller stations with ten bins each for hot items.
I found almost all my standards in one station. Much to our delight, there were six new items added since they gained some extra space in the move. We sampled three of them: veggies and tofu in a brown sauce, roasted potatoes, and cashew chicken.
The same friendly faces greeted us warmly and the food tasted as great as ever. We look forward to many more lunches in this nice new building.
