I know how you feel. I so dislike the food at most buffet-type restaurants. It's usually low quality and high calorie. Chinese buffets offer some advantage because they usually include stir-frys and several veggie options, but the sauces are often calorie laden. You seem to have handled things well and kept everyone happy.

I would go for soup (I personally love hot and sour soup) and the salad/fruit bar. If you feel the need to eat some of the other hot food, look for something with shrimp or other fish and lots of veggies. But just eat a small amount, because the sauces tend to have a lot of calories. Good luck!
My parents are insisting on meeting at a Chinese buffet today. I could use some advice on handling this. What are my best bets for a low calorie late lunch here? I don't have to eat that much but I don't want to look like I'm not eating at all. I want to avoid comments from my parents about why I'm not eating and don't I like the food. I don't like it - it's nasty -and I hate to waste precious calories on something I can't stand, but my parents are weird and sensitive and overeaters themselves so I would love to avoid confrontation.
