After a crazy week and an even crazier Friday, we decided to keep things simple and visit New China Buffet in Melrose Park, IL. This restaurant is always busy on Friday and Saturday nights because of the all you can eat buffet and the crab legs offered on those nights.
My husband always enjoys the seafood and fish—baby octopus, clams, mussels, salmon, white fish, etc.
My son started out with his favorite, noodles, both brown and white, corn and brown rice. (His next plate was more nutritionally balanced!)
My daughter was happy with the macaroni and cheese, brown noodles, salmon and broccoli.
The crab legs are the big draw on Friday and Saturday night; it is not unusual to see people stand in line at the buffet waiting for the crab legs to come out and then walking away with a heaping plate, leaving few for the other people in line. My husband did manage to get two plates of crab legs, which we all (except my daughter) enjoyed.
(One of our plates of crab legs.)
We paid $19.98 for two adults, minus the 20% off (4.00) = $15.98
3.99 for my son (children 3-5) (my daughter was free)
3.00 tip for a total of $24.97
We saved 4.00.
