10 tips for getting the most out of an Asian buffet

Eating your money’s worth at an Asian all-you-can-eat buffet is an art that can only be mastered with practice.

If you’re someone whose family owns a buffet restaurant, I feel sorry for you because your childhood, like mine, was probably filled with waiting and dish-cleaning duties right after school.
