So I decided after a trip to the auto mechanic to take my children out to eat since they were on their best behavior.
I asked the kids where they wanted to go, and they mentioned Apple-bees and Old Country Buffet, which we always do. So than I get the bright idea to find a Chinese Buffet and they were in agreement with that too.
I Google "Chinese Buffet near Newark, DE" and Hibachi Grill Supreme Buffet pops up first. I read about three reviews, all of which were praising the establishment, and decided we'd try it out...there's a first time for everything right?
So we pull up to it and it's located in a shopping center, and from the outside the place looks smaller than it actually is. We walk inside and there's this beautiful fountain that greets you as you walk up to the host/hostess.
It was a Monday, around 5pm, so there was a nice little crowd for it to be the beginning of the week. We walk right in, are seated, and asked what we want to drink (we were informed there was free refills on the sodas only) and so we all ordered sodas.
Now it's time to get down to business...so I try to fill my sons plate at the same time I'm doing mine and I let my girls, who are older, go about their business.
They have a wide variety of foods, and for those with children whom are picky eaters, there's the food they're used to like fried wing dings, pizza, french fries, chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, etc. I made so many trips and still didn't fill up on everything.
They're seafood selection is nice; the only thing missing, which other Chinese buffets usually have, are snow crab legs, but you don't miss those too much.
They had different varieties of shrimp (salt & pepper, cold, butter and coconut), craw-fish (which I've never bothered to eat), salmon, clams, steamed and stuffed mussels and grilled whitefish. They also had squid, which wasn't fried; they resembled miniature octopus and some of the shrimp still had the heads on (I couldn't eat them because they were staring at me).
Their meat selection was wonderful as well, and unlike Old Country Buffet, where they slice it for you and act like it's not all you can eat, you can slice the meat yourself and get as much as you want. They have things like ham, pork tenderloin, steak, spare ribs (boned and boneless), black pepper chicken, General Tso's Chicken, sesame chicken, etc....those were just some of the things I put on my plate.
They also have a grill in the back and a sushi bar.
They have the typical salad bar, but with so many toppings and selections such as egg, and a fresh selection of fruits, such as strawberries, bananas, cantaloupe, pineapple slices, honeydew, oranges, sliced apples with the skin, oranges, etc.
The best part of this buffet was their dessert selection. They have many varieties of cakes and cookies, three different varieties of jello and unlike most buffets, there's no soft serve ice cream machine. They had an actual freezer, as if you were at Baskin Robbins, with real Hershey's Ice Cream that you have to scoop up with an ice cream scoop..my kind of ice cream.
There were at least 12 different flavors (six bins in two separate freezers). I remember seeing cookies and cream, strawberry, vanilla, chocolate and butter pecan. They even had three different varieties of puddings, which I normally don't see anywhere.
Now anyone who is reading this don't get too discouraged because there are more in other areas; I'm unsure if they're affiliated with one another, so I can't vouch for those. I can tell you, there wasn't anything I can remember that I didn't like. It's a casual atmosphere where you can take the whole family, and there is something there for everyone. Go check it out and look in your area to see if your city has one..you won't regret it!!
