Storm Lake is a city of diverse cultures – many ethnic communities and restaurants are available in the city. Restaurants are especially important for students because there are many days when students need a break from school food. When stepping out for a subtle change of pace, one restaurant University of Buena Vista students should try would be China One Buffet.
As the name suggests, China One Buffet serves various Chinese dishes. These different foods include various forms of soup, fried rice, lo mein, chow mein, foo young eggs, pork, chicken, beef, and shrimp. After each meal, they also offer their customers a complementary fortune cookie. If someone wants more fortune cookies, they can buy more for 50 cents up front where they pay for their meal.
China One Buffet also offers online ordering for its customers. This way, one can bring food back to their dorm while studying or doing homework. However, they do not offer delivery services. Thus, students will have to take the time to go to the restaurant for their food. However, this is not a problem as the restaurant is quite easy to find. The official address is 1419 N Lake Ave, Storm Lake, IA 50588 for those who like to put everything in their phone while driving. However, this street is easy to find for Buena Vista University students. This is the same street that students can take to get to Walmart. Just before arriving at Walmart, students will see the Dollar General parking lot. China One Buffet is to the right of Dollar General.
One important thing to note about China One Buffet is that they require masks to enter the restaurant. If you don’t have a mask, they give you one for free at the entrance. The restaurant also requires one to wear a plastic glove when taking food from the buffet. Gloves are provided at the ends of the buffet areas and customers can always replace them each time they go upstairs for more food. As for your empty plates, the waiters will always come to your table and ask you to take your plates away.
When thinking of going out somewhere for lunch or dinner, one must pay attention to China One Buffet. They offer great Chinese food, great service, Covid-19 virus safety, and online ordering options. As someone who has been to the restaurant with friends, I highly recommend it to anyone craving good Chinese food.
