Wegman's

The big New York-based super-supermarket chain Wegman's moved into town last year - Baltimore Magazine named it the best area supermarket of the year. I decided to do a little Thanksgiving shopping there. I tell you, it was a madhouse! So many people. And ALWAYS, ALWAYS some fool just stopping in front of you and looking around or something. I used to enjoy shopping, no more!

I must say that their hot buffet - priced the same as Whole Foods', at $6.99 - is not bad. Oh my God, there is a reason why so many people rave over Wegman's, and one reason must be sheer variety of hot food they offer - hot dogs, pizza, salad (not hot, but okay), chicken, sushi (again, not hot), and a pan-Asian buffet. It is the last offering that I sample when I go to Wegman's. It's not the greatest food, but it's good enough. I really like the flavor of their panang chicken, though today I went for the pineapple chicken (with a coating similar to orange chicken). It was pretty chewy, not something I will order again. Their chicken tikka was different, though again not notable. Steamed veggies, such as zucchini, carrot, red onion - good enough.

Okay, why do I eat at their buffet again?

Wegman's = Evil

wegman's has lots of good stuff and pretty decent prices (in general), but the people who shop there are unbearable.

evil, indeed.
