For many years, Chinois Restaurant has been a family favorite. Opening for the first time in the Plaza Portofino of the Marina Casa de Campo, Chinois was a popular establishment among Casa de Campo villa owners and visitors alike… Back in 2016, they opened in La Romana and we are still flocking to enjoy their delicious dishes and the fabulous events that they organize. This will not be an exception! Chinois invites us to their next All-You-Can-Eat event on Saturday, November 4th.
Chinois is located in Calle Duarte, Restauración Street Corner. Their establishment is able to comfortably seat 60 guests in the interior dining area and 120 guests on the patio under the now multicolored lanterns. A private dining area can be prepared for up to 30 guests, and the entire establishment is perfect for casual gatherings, birthdays, and other events. As always, the event is just RD $1,000 (taxes not included). It includes a delicious selection of the best dishes, from sushi, egg rolls, dumplings, chow mein, chofan, teriyaki chicken, and more!
Take your family and friends over and don’t forget to bring your appetite with you! We highly recommend it and look forward to seeing you there.
Did you know…?
All-You-Can-Eat is a term that originated in the USA, although it is said that a similar concept was used in Sweden and France, which is where historically supposedly they were the first countries to formalize the buffet idea. In Sweden, they used the term smorgasbord, which described a way to feed hungry out-of-town visitors who’d pop in unexpectedly. Starting with just bread and butter and then growing to include salted fish, eggs, and boiled vegetables, then moving on to cold cuts, warm entrees and salads, and ending finally with dessert and coffee. The French used the same concept, but more refined and lavish. In the US, the first man to use the All-You-Can-Eat term was Herb McDonald in the 1940’s when he worked at the El Rancho Vegas Hotel and was just trying to keep his gambling customers happy when around midnight he brought out a selection of cold cuts, cheese and bread. It was a huge hit! Plus, they gained loyal customers. This later evolved to 24-hour all-you-can-eat “Buckaroo Buffet” where customers could select from a variety of offerings. This was later on adopted by the rest of the hotels in Vegas and now seen all across the globe.*
