When you are at a function do you prefer a buffet where you can mingle with the crowd and pick what you like, or would you rather a sit down dinner where you're not required to stand in a line and plated meals are brought to you?
Definitely a sit down dinner. I used to love buffets until I became diagnosed with a food intolerance. Now they are scary experiences where nothing is safe, because even the dishes I can eat will be made bad for me by utensils coming in contact with them from other dishes. This is obviously a very specific problem though, and if I didn't have it I'm sure I'd still love buffets.
Yeah, me too. One thing that I discussed with my family only last evening whilst out to a little local restaurant, is not having the water from the bottle brought to the table. I have seen fur growing in the bottom of them and I don't think the bottle get ashes after each table is cleared. Was assured by the family that they would be. Just had to disagree, I think they are just refilled and chilled and then brought to the next diners.
I'd rather a sit-down meal, but 2 friends & myself, have a Christmas buffet meet up each December at The Star, in Darling Harbour, Sydney. The only other buttets I eat at, is up stairs on the cruise ships each breakfast, lunch on the 'at sea' days, & dinner on port days, because I don't like having to dress up after being ashore all day for dinner!
