December 27, 2013
Elsa, Holden and Don

The Red Orchids for their buffet.  It is a Filipino restaurant.
126 East Main Street

We are the first ones there at the opening bell.

 Today's buffet menu.  There are changes everyday although some items are repeated.
Garden Salad and Seaweed Salad

 Rice, Chicken Soup, Mac and Beef and Pancit

Baked Salmon, Lumpia and Pork BBQ

Beef K and Pork Adobo

Desserts and Macaroni Salad.  Notice the fresh Filipino Mango.

Our starting dish.  Holden starts with a bowl of soup.

 Elsa's brother shows up for lunch with his friends.  Elsa did not know that he was going to be here.

They have other choices besides the buffet.

 Here the owner chats with Elsa.  It seems that they are a few mutual friends.
All of the dishes were tasty.  The Beef K was very good.  There is a nice variety of dishes and at $6.99 a real bargain.  Drinks were only $1.25.  So with sales tax and tip we had a full lunch for $10 per person.

The exit/entryway.

Their current hours are from Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

They also are available for parties as well as outside catering.

They also have plans to open for weekend evening entertainment and dining starting next Spring.
