(Food Edition) Eating the buffet at Ben Wong Restaurant for the first time
This past Saturday, I went to Ben Wong Restaurant and got the dinner buffet for the first time. For those who may not know, Ben Wong Restaurant is a local family restaurant that provides quality food in Blairmore. They have been open since 2006 and provide dine-in, take-out and delivery to the Crowsnest Pass. It is some truly wonderful food in my opinion.
I’ll be honest, I have been there plenty of times before, but I always got my go-to dish. I always ordered number 89, the Shanghai Style Stir Fried Fat Noodle with Pork. It’s delicious, but it was time for me to expand my horizons and try a few different items from the menu.
The buffet was the perfect opportunity. I filled my plate with as much as it could handle, fitting on dumplings, spring rolls, sweet and sour pork and a heavy helping of rice. I also snuck on some ginger beef and deep-fried wontons.
Overall, I was incredibly satisfied. The food was great and the service exceptional. I only wish I had gone on an emptier stomach so I could have tried more of the items. I mean, how could I have forgotten to leave room for wonton soup! This only means I will have to go back to Ben Wong Restaurant sometime soon. It is only a short walk from me.
This Cantonese restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday and is closed on Mondays.
Ben Wong Restaurant is located at 13249, 20 Avenue in Blairmore. They host a buffet on Friday and Saturday. The lunch buffet runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the dinner buffet runs from 5 to 8:30 p.m. every week.
I highly recommend you visit this locally run business for a wonderful dinner or lunch. It is a cozy and comfortable place to enjoy a meal with kind staff and owners. The atmosphere is truly terrific, and I can’t recommend the Shanghai Style Stir Fried Fat Noodle enough! I sure hope everyone enjoys the food as much as I did.
