#1 Buffet in the world?

Las Vegas is known as “Sin City” and is famous for its extravagance, including a replica Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, etc.

If Las Vegas is the capital of buffets and USA Today ranked this as the #1 buffet in Vegas, does it mean this is also the #1 buffet in the world?

I had to try it. Never mind the snaking queue and the 45-min wait. I was in Las Vegas and I only had time for one buffet, so I figured I should go for the one that is ranked #1 in Vegas by USA Today!

Meat, meat and more meat!

500 Daily Offerings

That’s how I found myself at Bacchanal at Caesars Palace where there was a promise of over 500 daily offerings.

Being Singaporean and trained in the art of buffets, I started asking myself, “How would I be able to stomach 500 different types of food in one sitting? What should I attack first? What are the must-eats?”

The spread on offer is really overwhelming, with nine different stations offering a taste of flavours from around the world. I went straight for the oysters and the king crabs. Then followed up with the prime rib, grilled lamb chops, sliders, southern fried chicken, sausages… I could keep going but I know this is torture.

Food, Food Everywhere

There was also a pasta station and an Asian section with Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese, but it was the dessert section that was truly amazing!

Baked-to-order soufflés, at least 20 different types of cakes, tarts crème brulee, lots of ice cream, macaroons, chocolates and, overall, just an obscene amount of food.

Best in the World?

So, is it really the #1 buffet in the world?

We have champagne brunch spreads in Singapore that could rival it, so I would say no, but for US$40 for dinner, I thought it was a really, really good spread, at great value and just the perfect way to pig out on all your American favourites.

Las Vegas is truly Sin City.
