What was your fave lunch buffet food? (not including brunch)

Since there's not alot of info on the lunch buffet foods, I was just wondering if anyone wants to share any particular food they loved? (and the rest of us can hope they'll be serving it on our next cruise )

(oh yeah, piggy back question: does Scoops serve Milkshakes?)

For DH, it was the shrimp and split crab (March 2002, didn't see it last year?) legs on seafood buffet day. For me, I LOVED the mini-burritos!

My favorite lunch was when we boarded because it was such a good feeling!!! To know it was just beginning and it would be a MAGICal week!! I probably could have eaten dirt and it would have tasted good because I was on the Magic!!

Darn we missed the Italian buffet, but I really liked the Asian Buffet at Topsiders. I did not care for the mexican buffet. They had no mexican food on it in my opinion except for the spanish rice.

The buffet on boarding day was the best. Add another vote for the Mango soup. It was Strawberry soup on one of my Wonder cruises. Yu-hum! Honestly, my favorite lunch item was the burgers by the pool. I OFTEN opted for them instead of the buffet items. Honestly, on a 7 night western, you'll probably be in port most days at lunch time (except the 2 sea days).

I second Ppiglet's vote for the Asian buffet...but it's only day three for us. :-) I wasn't thrilled with Italian yesterday--thought the pasta (in two different forms) was a bit "tough". The Asian was awesome and I only wish I could have stuffed more in. I tried at least 6 different dishes and was too stuffed to go back for the made-to-order stir fry. Bummer! (I still managed to get a couple fortune cookies down. LOL!)

Stone Crab Claws

Shrimp on embarkation day earns honorable mention, and the asian stir fry to order as well.

Salmon "burgers" and bbq'd ribs at Cookie's on Castaway Cay.
Sushi at the seafood buffet.
Bagels with lox & cream cheese at Parrot Cay breakfast buffet (this was still a favorite even by the time I got to lunch).
Pretty much everything on the dessert buffets.

I have to say the Lobster Burgers at Cookie's at CC, the Asian buffet was nice, the Mexican buffet, shrimp, and sushi.
