Why a Buffet is the Best Option for a Dinner Outing

Tips for Buffet Etiquette in Sri Lanka

When you’re planning a dinner outing with your family or friends, the question of where to go is something you stress about a lot. You can pick a restaurant, but then comes all the protests: “I don’t like that kind of food”, “They don’t have vegetarian options”, “Their portions are so small”. Well, the list goes on.

This is why a buffet is the best option for you! Here are some of the reasons why you should choose a buffet for your next dinner outing:

Caters to Dietary Preferences

When you choose a good buffet, the spread of food will be quite wide. Most top restaurants in Colombo have buffet spreads with different kinds of cuisine ranging from traditional Sri Lankan to Indian, Chinese, International and so on. This will satisfy everyone’s tastes. And you will get to experience different kinds of cuisine rather than sticking to one. When there is a wide spread, if you don’t eat one thing, there’s always something else you can try. There will be many options for vegetarians, people who don’t eat dairy foods or certain types of meat as well.

Portion Size That Suits You

One of the frequent complaints when you go to a restaurant is that the portion sizes are either too small or too big. If it’s too big, at least you can take the leftovers home. But if it’s too small, you’ll be paying for a meal that will leave you unsatisfied. But when you go to a buffet, you can serve your own plate! You get the chance to decide how much you eat and how much you want from certain types for food. This way, you will leave with a full tummy and a smile on your face.

Less Expensive

A buffet is more often than not less expensive and more worth than going for an à la carte option. It’s a fixed amount per person for a buffet and you can eat all you can! You even get to experience all kinds of food and not just one dish. It’s definitely worth your money!
