You're at an all-you-can-eat buffet, what do you eat first? I will wait until the food attendants bring a new item from kitchen and get there before anyone has a chance to get their germs on any of it. I watched a lady sneeze in her hands and then pickup some rolls and put one back...eeewh and one guy in the bathroom didn't wash his hands and got some ice cream and put his hands on the cones but didn't take it.
I would wait for the fresh food to be dished out onto the buffet. I would definitely eat the pasta first.
