Newcomer’s inept buffet skills cause disgust among experienced brunchers

Baked beans mingling with sashimi, hot dogs nestling in chicken biryani and a “truck load of bread” were just some of the horrors described by seasoned diners at the Millennium Dolphin Towers Hotel on Friday when describing Diane Franko’s amateur buffet skills.

“I appreciate that she’s new in town, but who the hell piles their plate with the first things they see, especially when it’s spaghetti carbonara, half a beef enchilada and a selection of liver sausages,” said one experienced bruncher, who wished to remain unnamed.

“And if you think that was hideous what she did at dessert defies description,” she added. “Going back to the full English having already downed a couple of chocolate mousses is just demented.”

    My only game is to stop eating a day ahead of the buffet invitation. i still need to improve my balance of bread vs meat intake.

    I find the most amateurs “go sweet” far too early. Yes the desserts look lovely, but once you realise that the Baklava didn’t quite finish the job and you notice that they just brought another tray of mixed grill out it’s too late. There you are with dessert bowls on the table and there is no going back.The only thing you can do is try to fill the gap with more Om Ali and maybe some fresh fruit.
