V for very,very extraordinary
This is the recap of my 4d/3n trip to Vegas last weekend.
Chapter 1: Of Buffets, mice and men
Danny and I were totally excited to be in Vegas since its the first time for both of us. All we could think abt was the glorious food we've been hearing abt from so many sources. I looked up the internet for top places for buffets and we narrowed it to our top 3 choices, since one can only have so many buffets in a day! First stop was international buffet at Wynn hotel. Laine's rating gives its full scores for aesthetics, not so much on service and yeah, you betcha the shrimp and alaskan king crab legs were mighty fine!! Imagine a fat kid (and i mean grossly overweight) in a chocolate store, salivate salivate salivate...ate a whole lot that night...good thing we walked back to the hotel after, just to get our GITs cracking. I absolutely loved the decor, reminded me of a modern alice in wonderland.
Dinnertime no. 2, target seafood buffet at Rio's The Village Seafood Restaurant. This place had great reviews from everyone, including our cab driver so we had our hopes up. In the end, food was so-so, atmosphere was like being in a room full of big burly men, with their big chunky fingers trying to pry open those crab legs. Not pretty. This night, I was just happy being with the best looking guy in there. hahaha. We didnt have too many crab legs cos 1. We ate a whole fishing boat full at Wynn the other night and 2. Wynn actually had them peeled!!!! imagine that! Even Caeser had to have his grapes with the skin on 'em. We were pampered too much on day 1 to be impressed by Rio. Oh, did i mention lobsters??? yeah, that...and oysters??? mmmMMmmm good.
Night 3, we decided to go all Parisian and head down to Paris Hotel for french buffet. The setting in this one was stylish, very realistic and had a very romantic feel, (if u neglect the ever ringing sound of slots around you) Food was great, we liked this one much more than Rio's. Dessert was heavenly. Definately food coma after that. So, food in Vegas is definately a strong driving point to wanna come back for more. Just gotta know where to go, unless you were born in the Ooi family and are blessed with more stomachs than a cow. No mice were involved in this trip.
