I must get better at self-promotion. Last Friday, I had a story in the Times-Picayune testing the theories of Steven Shaw. In his book Asian Dining Rules, Shaw offers tips and strategies for getting a great meal at any Asian restaurant–including the humble buffet:
"Remember, " Shaw writes, "a buffet is a system in which the participants exercise a tremendous amount of self-determination. The most facile person at the buffet is going to get the best meal. That person should be you."
Yes, I would be that person. Today, the Panda King would bow to me.
This piece played poorly with the peanut gallery in the comments section. I was called a rambling writer, a wasteful diner, and a woman. Are there women named “Todd”?
