We have definitely been eating well during our stay in Nottingham. We have discovered such delights as chippie chips, bangers and mash, steak and wedges, home-made pie, but the best meal so far has been the Red Hot World Buffet. It had food from all over the world, including American (that I didn’t try, but I don’t think it impressed Michael), Italian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian, British… And a giant dessert area! I couldn’t possibly try everything they had, I tasted bits of each cuisine but I was full before round 2. To me that is the mark of a good buffet – you want to go again to try things you missed the first time!
We skipped breakfast to make sure we were starving by the time we arrived at noon. It was a gorgeous restaurant, huge and well decorated. It was designed to look like an airport as you walk in, and I saw people being ‘checked in’ with two suitcases and I cracked up laughing, because it looked like they thought it was a real airport. I was super excited to sit down and start eating! First I had sushi (which is smaller than American sushi, weird), then an array of Indian starters, then I gave a bunch of beef, noodles and veggies to a guy and he fried them up and tossed them in Satay sauce for me – it was amazing. From there I stopped taking photos, but I had a slice of pizza, some french fries, chicken nuggets, and then got started on dessert. I was full to bursting by the time I was done – and I’m not sure exactly what it’s done to my waistline. But whatever… I’ll worry about that next time we’re there
