the siren call of the custard bun

I've found another restaurant to avoid...unless, of course, I want to go face-first into the peach buns, custard buns, lightbulbs, and other Chinese sweets. The Dragon Sea Buffet in Springfield violates the plastic chair rule, but nonetheless has a decent variety of entrees, a good-sized salad & fruit bar, and a sushi guy who makes decent enough rolls. (I forgot to sample the tamago. ;_;) It's also cheap ($8.50 including beverage) and just ten minutes away from work, which is perhaps too convenient.

I'm glad I remembered Radio Hidebound, since I can't access pandora.com on account of Shockwave Flash isn't enabled on my workstation. BIG 100.3 was getting tiresome as they recycled the same Jeff Foxworthy sketches repeatedly throughout the day, and I only have so many mix CDs. Sure, I suppose I could lug the external hard drive to work, but getting out of the house in the morning is difficult enough as it is. Now, if only my fellow RH patronswould quit requesting "Everything Reminds Me Of My Dog" and "Don't Let Us Get Sick", things would be pretty awesome.

The plastic chair rule?? What's that?

As a general rule, I've observed that the more money a restaurant spends on decor and "ambience", the worse the food is. Ergo, if you go into a Chinese place in a strip mall and they're using those cheap stackable plastic chairs, the food's probably going to be pretty damn good. Then again, my favorite restaurants in Minnesota are Peter's Grill and a truck stop in Clearwater, so YMMV.
