Angel’s Buffet and Catering – Chipley, FL

This entry was posted in Foods, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

lsI had been in this establishment before, when it was the New Star Chinese Buffet. The new management took this place into a completely opposite direction, and Angel’s Buffet is now a purely Southern and Soul Food restaurant. Advertised as having the “Best Chicken Around”, the chicken did not disappoint! The skin was light, crispy, and not at all greasy. Sadly, on the day I came there, the other offerings were not quite as good.

There was a baked chicken with barbeque sauce that was a bit overcooked and hard to manage. There were only about five or six vegetable choices for a weekday lunch. Butter beans, yellow rice, collards, corn and snap beans. There were egg rolls that were very good plain, even though I do prefer them with duck sauce and Chinese mustard. There were baked sweet potatoes, rolls, and fried cornbread, which was pretty light and crispy, like the fried chicken. These guys and gals got making deep fried food down to an art. There was also an assortment of thin slices over various cakes for sweet options, but I did not partake of those. The sweet tea was light tasting, and not too sweet. On some things, they hit the mark, and on others, some improvement was needed. Another thing that was a let down was the fact that there was a wonderful chicken gravy, but no mashed or new potatoes to put them on. I tried it on the yellow rice, but it was just not quite the same.

Is our food actually safe to eat?

As some of you know I have personally started having a sensitivity to corn. I have no way to find out if it is due to GMO ingredients or if it is just corn in general. The reason why I can’t find out is that I have no way of knowing if a particular ear of corn has been genetically modified or not. Because of this I have to be extremely careful in what I buy and what I eat. Some might not think that this is a hard thing to do but in fact it really is. To prove this, the next time you go shopping, look at the ingredients on the label and you will find corn in most everything that you look at, even the meat. Here is a link to an incomplete list of what is a corn substance: Corn Ingredients To Avoid (The page I wanted to link to was not available at the time of this article but the link is on the page that this article links to)

For those with a food allergy you know just how difficult they can be when going to the store to shop for groceries. For those with a corn sensitivity or a corn allergy it makes you want to cry when you go to the store. You see all the foods that you ate when you were a kid and you can’t even be around them any more. Heck, corn alcohol is being used now for perfumes and cleaners which make things even worse. Its one thing to be allergic but when that allergy causes you to be afraid of shopping you know that there is a real problem going on. Back in the day when wheat allergies and peanut allergies were first starting to surface people would scoff at them. They would say that the person was just faking it or something. Sometimes they would say it was just to get attention or some kind of other food. No matter what in the end it was proven that those people did indeed have an allergy to those substances and food labels changed to reflect that. Now if they would just take us corn sufferers seriously and start listing things properly.
