Chinese buffet?

I went to eat at the Chinese Buffet and didnt feel like cooking tonight but I'm wondering in Chinese buffets when they deep fry do they use vegetable oil or do they use shortening? I tried to ask but nobody could understand my English

    Typically they would not use shortening, but it might not necessarily be veggie oil either; they may use soybean oil or peanut oil as well.

    most likely they use a special deep frying oil designed for big commercial fryers. All food service places get their supplies from approved food service vendors who sell stuff like that.

    There are no buffets right now with the COVID lockdown. I wouldn't eat at one were it available right now anyway.

    Probably oil. Does it honestly matter? Fried is fried.
