What comes to mind when I say Chinese buffet? Large tables of people hunched over plates of questionable food stuffing themselves silly for a fixed price? Maybe hot tables haphazardly filled with questionable “edible” food? Or dried out dishes sitting under heat lamps long enough to require a SPF sauce? Now, what If I told you there’s a new place that’s trying to dispel these misconceptions by updating the way you think of Chinese buffets? I had the opportunity to check out the newest Chinese restaurant hot spot in Laval; Cuisine Kung fu Légende. Cuisine Kung fu Légende is new concept Chinese buffet restaurant. “What’s wrong with the old concept?” You ask. Nothing! They are just updating and reinventing everything you know about Chinese buffet food!
Do you think you can handle spicy foods? That’s cute, because no, no you can’t. I’ve bragged about it in the past that I can eat spicy foods. When given the chance and am able to choose the level of spiciness in a dish, I’ll forego “very spicy” and ask for “ETHNIC SPICY”. I once went to an Indian spot in Cote des Neiges and the waiter asked me how spicy I wanted my food. I told him to make it as spicy as he would eat it. He asked me THREE TIMES if I was sure, and I told him THREE TIMES that I was. I regretted it 20 seconds after I took my first bite. This was the first time I made this mistake. The second time I made the mistake of ordering ultra super spicy, was at the newly opened all you can eat Chinese hot pot spot in Ville Saint-Laurent, Première Fondue.
