On Wednesday I took Joe to meet his new surgeon. Yes, Joe is having surgery in two weeks. Nothing serious, but serious enough. We both really liked this doctor and it sounds as if he has done a ton of similar surgeries.
After we left we were both hungry. We debated about where to go. A Vietnamese restaurant nearby? I love Vietnamese food but Joe has never had it. Wawa for some hoagies? Home so we don't spend money we don't have? We ended up going to a new Chinese buffet in our neighborhood.
It used to be the Super China Buffet.
It was a good place but sort of run down and tired. And in the end the food was going downhill too.
It is now Aramingo Buffet. I don't have a picture of the outside, but it is all spruced up. We went in the entrance which used to be the exit. We used to pay after we ate but now we paid before. But what a beautiful place it is now.
I started out with my favorite egg drop soup. I loved the bowls they served it in. And it wasn't salty at all. Apparently this is a low salt restaurant. I like that.
There was a whole table of American food which Joe opted for. Except for the egg rolls. He had a pot roast, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes.
No more booths. Everything was so pretty and super clean.
For his second plate Joe went to the salad bar. He got fresh veggies and a side of melons. I opted for more Chinese food. Chicken and broccoli, glass noodles, a Spring roll, pot stickers, fried chicken and a sesame ball.
It was nice having a lunch date with my hubby. The food was good, it was clean, the wait staff was pleasant (although they didn't speak much English), and we will be going back.
