Buffets are a tricky thing. It’s basically an excuse to pork out, but you don’t want to be that person who piles their plate full of food or makes umpteen trips back to get more food. Salad buffets are the worst, only because it lulls you into a false sense of security. Salads are healthy, right? So eating a lot of salad is totally okay. Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants, and it’s a salad buffet. I could spend hours in there trying little bits of each salad they have available, though my favorites are the Caesar salad and the Chicken Won-Ton Happiness salad. Fortunately for me, it’s in Raleigh, which is about an hour and a half from where I live, so I don’t have that many opportunities to eat there and make a fool of myself.
What’s your favorite buffet restaurant, and what do you always pig out on when you go there? Is it a salad or a main course? Maybe a dessert?
