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.

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 🌎

PS: If you want the link to where I got my metal straws, DM me!

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 ✌️

Minus the five years of data that I lost, my phone and I are tapiokay now! πŸ“±

Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
β €
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! πŸ™

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!
