Wok of Fame


For my grandpa’s birthday, we celebrated it at the Chinese buffet restaurant, Wok of Fame. It was my cousin’s idea to go here because she wanted the Peking duck but there wasn’t any.

To be honest, there wasn’t much to eat from at this buffet. I really had no idea what to eat because there were so few options! The cool thing this restaurant had was a grill section. They cooked steak, fish, noodles, and seafood right in front of you.Β The problem for me was I only eat steak at certain locations, I’m not a seafood person, I don’t eat fish (except tuna and eel), and I prefer European type noodle dishes over Asian ones. This is why I didn’t enjoy this restaurant as much.

I didn’t take photos of my main courses because a) it wasn’t presentable, b) I eat a lot so I’d have to take a billion photos, and c) the food is similar to what they would serve at any Chinese buffet restaurant.

But, I did take photos of the dessert, which I quite enjoyed. They had creme brulee, a waffle station, a soft serve ice cream machine, a fondue station, and fridges of little cakes!

I did like the lights and tree decor they had. And there was a live piano performance while everyone ate!

In conclusion, I probably won’t go back unless it’s a mandatory family event. I would rather go to the Mandarin.

    My family used to go to buffets a lot when I was a kid. I guess it’s an easy way to feed a lot of people and everyone should be able to find something to eat. Most buffets I have been to have bad to average food. Things generally don’t keep so well. The longer they are sitting in the bain marie, the more overcooked and squidgey they get. Chinese food generally is best cooked over a high heat and very quickly. Buffet style is usually cooked long and slow. It’s better to order at a restaurant than have all you can eat. Whenever I got to a regular Chinese restaurant, I eat until I’m full anyway so there’s really no much benefit quantity-wise by going to a buffet.

      Yeah, the only reason my family goes is because there is at least 30 of us so it’s easier to find a buffet restaurant that can fit a table of 30 than a normal restaurant. But I totally agree with the quality of the food.

        30 is a big number! For that many, we usually go for 2-3 tables at a Chinese restaurant. Usually the birthday person picks a menu based on their tastes.

Whiskey away to a colder climate, please! 🍧
β €
The summer heat is why one reason I can't stand this season but having @kekougelato makes it bearable!
β €
Yesterday I got a scoop of Whiskey Green Tea on top of a scoop of Durian. The Whiskey Green Tea holds more whiskey than green tea but eventually the taste of the whiskey starts to fade when you continue to eat it. And the green tea provides an almost Earthy element to the combo. When I combine that with the Durian, the Durian packs a much stronger flavour than the Whiskey Green Tea but both are still good flavours to get.
β €
Thank you again @alt.aria for your complimentary double scoop! πŸ’™

(Free) Food will always have a pizza my heart πŸ•
β €
To celebrate the grand opening of their Oakville location, @blazepizza is giving away free pizzas today from 11 AM to 10 PM! All you have to do is download the Blaze Pizza app and go line up for the free pizza! It's that simple! You can choose from one of their Signature pizzas or Build Your Own (1-2 toppings).
β €
I've been meaning to check out Blaze Pizza in Toronto but always forgot to and since I'm closer to Oakville, today's grand opening was the perfect way for me to try it! I got the Art Lover signature pizza (swipe ⏩), which has artichokes, ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, and dollups of tomato sauce. I also added some oregano. The pizza is thin (which I prefer), and though it doesn't look like much on the Art Lover one, it actually packs a lot of flavour.
(The other pizza pictured is the Meat Eater.)
β €
What's your go-to pizza topping?

Even in the summer heat, staying cool is popsicle 🍦
β €
Another year of going to the Burlington Food Truck Festival! If it wasn't so hot today, definitely could have enjoyed the festival more.
β €
1- Lime Mojito paleta from @wrestlers_to ($5)
2- Curry Fish Balls from @hk_food_station ($6 for 8)
3- Egg Waffles from @hk_food_station
4- Carne Mechada from @theareparepublic ($13)
β €
The Lime Mojito paleta was the best thing I ate, followed by the Curry Fish Balls. The Egg Waffle was burnt a bit, so it was like a crispy Egg Waffle cracker. The Carne Mechada was my least favourite. While it was a lot of meat, it was tough and semi-dry.
β €
What food festivals are you hitting up this summer?

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🀟
β €
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
β €
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
β €
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝
β €
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
β €
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️
