Behold! The Buffet in Bellagio is the first of my six part series of Vegas deliciousness!
During the trip, we stayed at Bellagio which was a awesome because A) we got to look like high rollers (just kidding…we played $0.01 slots) and B) we were only a few steps away from the best buffet ever.
The interior is not as pretty as the buffet at Wynn but it was comfortable enough to enjoy a long and relaxing meal.
We get complimentary drinks and guess what I got? Nope, its not Baileys or anything. It’s chocolate milk. Muahahaha. Oh, the child in me.
Since pictures are worth a thousand words, I will let the photos speak for themselves from now on with occasional blurbs from me. Here are some antipasto platters to get your taste buds tingling.
I wouldn’t suggest filling up on carbs at a buffet but if you do like bread as a starter, they have a vast variety of loafs and buns. They even have pretzel buns!
A staple of many buffets, the flat and usually uninteresting pizza.
Turkey with cranberry sauce anyone?
This nice gentlemen served some darn good prime rib.
Yum….SAUSAGES…. Meta Knight and I came back for seconds.
Bouncy and plump shrimp always start a meal off right.
I don’t see all-you-can-eat Alaskan king crab at buffets all too often which was why I was incredibly impressed considering how affordable the meal was ($31.99 in case you were wondering). The plate was constantly replenished with generous heapings of frozen king crab legs so no need to worry about not getting any.
I only went for the king crab legs but they do have snow crab legs as well if that is more your thing.
Look at the size and length of this baby!
Kobe roast beef with creamed spinach and assorted roasted veggies.
If you read my post on the buffet at River Rock Casino, I mentioned that my goal for every buffet is to start off with a soup and salad. So for anyone that cares, I stuck to it even in Vegas *pats on back*!
It was the first time I had creamed spinach and boy, was it the BOMB! Whoever thought of putting cream and spinach is a genius…
I found out these were chive spatzle (German Pasta) upon closer examination.
Scallop ceviche, calamari ceviche, smoked salmon mousse in phyllo cup, pad thai, seafood paella, and polenta.
The prime rib here was excellent. Highly recommended.
Caramel Flan. Meta Knight’s favourite dessert.
The sugar free cheesecake was very ‘cheesy’ as described by Meta Knight.
Though the creme brulee looks a bit sloppy and burnt, it tasted wonderful with specks of real vanilla bean on the bottom. Needless to say, we both had seconds. The lemon meringue tart, on the other hand, was a disappointment.
Skip the raspberry sorbet.
All in all, the Bellagio buffet surpassed my expectations and I will most certainly come back whenever I return to Viva Las Vegas. For $31.99, it is a steal and is a much better value than a lot of other buffets that are well over $40 for dinner.
