Fortune Buffet Restaurant Review

: If you’ve turned up your nose at the idea of eating at a Chinese buffet, come here; you’ll leave a convert. Fortune Buffet has a bewildering selection of nearly 170 menu items, from its fresh sushi bar to row upon row of tempting, all-you-can-eat Chinese and Vietnamese dishes. We usually start with sushi, perhaps smoky eel, avocado and flying fish roe. Then it’s on to tasty pork dumplings and wonton soup. Among entrées, we like the spicy, double-cooked pork as well as the sweet-and-sour pork and chicken. Other options include scallops in black bean or hot garlic sauce, peanut chicken, whole fish, snow crab, Peking duck, mussels and at least six steamed diet choices. Besides the regular buffet, there's also a Mongolian BBQ station with a chef on hand for individual cook-to-order dishes. With all this food on display, don't overlook the soup station or the ice cream machine. Wine and beer only.
