May Gold Village is a busy restaurant located at the busy intersection of Veterans Parkway and Goldstream Avenue in Langford, British Columbia. They have been offering a lunch and dinner buffet since they opened their business in 2005. After my last visit, I realized something.
THERE IS NO
Let’s be honest. The only thing that was worth putting up with
If you want your steak sauce, here it is. Maygold has it, on tap, and unlimited. Conveniently nestled beside it, is a tray of steamed white rice, creating a perfect situation for the steak sauce/ rice fanatic.
I was so happy with the simplicity/ happiness factor of the buffet; I almost overlooked the myriad of other unique dishes that were presented before me inside the large restaurant (the place looked like it could seat 200 people).
To name a few:
Honey chicken. Yes, that’s right. I didn’t forget to put the word garlic between honey and chicken. They may have just dipped these boneless chunks of lightly fried chicken into the hive, because they were sweet, tender and were as simple and delicious as any buffet item in the Capitol region.
Strips of lean pork sautéed in garlic and glazed with traditional sweet and sour sauce.
Three types of sushi; Dynamite rolls (fried prawns),
Further rounding out the buffet were peanut honey chicken skewers, almond chicken, sweet and sour pork and honey garlic spare ribs.
The mushroom pork with black beans was filled with meat, which was the defining point of this buffet: lot’s of meat. They did have vegetable dishes such as deep fried yams and spring rolls, but the overwhelming majority of the dishes cater to the carnivore.
It should be noted that the food was high in salt, a lot higher then their competitors, but as long as the drinks are flowing, this shouldn't ruin your experience.
The customer service in terms of handling beverages was lacking, but the fountain machine dispensing pops was customer friendly, meaning you could actually get up and grab your own soft drinks if the waitress was to busy.
If you want to have a good time with your buddies and pig out on some delectable dishes without feeling disappointed, right now May Gold is your best bet.
