Dinner out with the Family at #ChinaBuffet #EqualCanada #CBias

Today we decided to head out to Brockville in the late afternoon do a bit of shopping and enjoy a nice family dinner out. Brockville is about 45 minutes from our town and is on the St Lawrence river.

We did some groceries then we went to Wal Mart as we promised the kids some toy aisle browsing and ended our trip at the China Buffet which is in the 1000 Island Mall.

We love heading out to Buffets as it gives everyone a nice choice of foods and the kids can choose what they would like or try a little of this and a little of that. We did enjoy a nice buffet dinner that included all kinds of yummy foods - Shanghai noodles, chicken balls, egg rolls, fried mushrooms, chicken and broccoli and so much more.

After such a big and tasty meal we decided that we didn't have anymore room, even for coffee. I know you say no room for coffee? I know usually I always have room for a coffee but my tummy hasn't been feeling well the last few days and D has cut way back on caffeine.

I did still check out the options for sweeteners in the restaurant and this is what I found in their sugar container....
No Equal sweetener in the China Buffet but I did talk to a couple of staff there about Equal sweetener and offering it to there customers. From what I got from our conversation is that it isn't an option from the supplier they order from. Also it was a very hard conversation as there was a bit of a language barrier. I have requested that they try and get Equal in as a choice of sweeteners as people do love the choice.  
Thumbs up from the kids, except that the restaurant was a bit cold and P was lucky to have a sweater and A put here jacket on. The service was friendly not fast on refills or checking in on how we were doing. We were also over in a corner away from the buffet tables. Overall we did have a good experience and I am sure we will go again as we enjoy the food and variety. Side note: Bubble gum ice cream produces bubble gum smelling and tasting burbs. haha

Did you know that you can bake with Equal sweetener? There are many great looking recipes on the Equal website on their recipe page.

  1. I get the same feeling after doing buffet. That and I think the choices are just too much for kids, mine never seem to eat anything, they just pick and pick at their food.
    But, it's nice to have some many options once in a while, same should go with sweeteners!

    Usually the choices are way too much for my kids and they don't eat much at all. This time around they actually ate very well! Especially now that they are the age we pay for it is frustrating if they don't eat.

    Ever where I go now I watch for Equal
