Surely it's standard practice to go for at least two meats at a carvery?

I would imagine so, otherwise why not just get a roast anywhere? Surely the appeal of a carvery is that it gives you license to not just have the one meat.

In Chinatown? There's two. I've only been to one of them, and it was a pretty dismal experience. Tiny, packed, and hostile staff. It was one of those places that if you try and leave and there's a bit of food on your plate, they will weigh it and charge you for it. They don't give you any spoons either.

Kingston one used to be all you can eat for £4.50. It couldn’t be turned down.

Coincidentally actually one of my personal food rules is that I don't eat at buffets. But obviously I wouldn't impose it on anyone else because I'm not mental.

Mr. Wu's in Chinatown was absolute dross when I went. Every single dish was just sauce, a few poor scraps of meat, and a shit-ton of sliced onions to fill it all out. Rrrrubbish.

Yeah, you can't force people to a buffet - they have to learn to help themselves

Do you go to a Carvery on a Tuesday night after 21:00 or something? If you try and go to a Toby on a Sunday for Sunday Dinner, you may as well write the rest of the day off. It’s at least a 3 hour experience, mainly queuing

I’m going to go to a world buffet tomorrow because of this thread. I’ll get an item from each country and pour gravy over the lot. Yes, there will be photos.

You people ought to be ashamed of yourselves, ganging up on Lion over his food rules when it's clear the thread was only started to humblebrag about his new kitchen.

Mint sauce goes with all meats too. 

 

Well not gammon I suppose, but with all others. Too much mint sauce is just enough.

1. You dont have those 3 meats together, in fact more than one meat is unacceptable. 

You've never had the mixed doner and chicken shawarma from Panicos in Chorlton, that would change your mind.  The doner, chicken and tikka kebab (where you get asked "Salad or chips") from the Heath Road chippy in Bedworth might not but it's still worth having.

There used to be a guy in my work who's piece would consist of jam and cheese. He nearly always had it in the end bit of a Mother's Pride loaf too, as if he wasted many a loaf by just using the end bit. 

Same guys treat meal, a bowl of soup with a pie sitting in the middle; he ate the pie with a knife and fork, the soup acted as a sauce/gravy. 

Now this is where shit gets weird and unbelievable but 100% true nonetheless. Same guy ate dogfood. He'd swear it was the best of steak at the cheapest of prices. He'd boast about it and ridicule us for spending more money on real food. Guy ate Cesars dog meat with McCain quick chips and claim it was the best steak and chips he'd ever had. 

Just wrong

Yes. Nobody goes for a 'quick' roast dinner.
