Top Five Buffets for Island and Gourmet Flavors

By  | 

One of the best things about Las Vegas is the abundance of buffets in The Strip and the Downtown areas. You will find nearly every type of food and drinks to satisfy your cravings, from the island flavors of Polynesia to the gourmet dishes of the United States. Your cravings for these cuisines will find their match in these places so be sure to check them out on your next visit to the Sin City.

Flavors of the Islands

Las Vegas may be in the middle of the desert – the Mojave Desert in the State of Nevada, to be exact – but it certainly knows how to re-create the flavors of the islands half a world away. Your best bets are these buffets in the casino-and-hotel resorts:

If Polynesian dishes are your cravings in Las Vegas, you have to go to the Seasons Buffet at the Silverton every Saturday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. You will love the variety of Polynesian food including kalua pork, aki poke, pork lau lau, chili-mint wings, chicken curry, and lomi lomi, among others. You should always have a generous serving of the roasted suckling pig with crispy skin, all for just under $22 in an all-you-can-eat feast.  

A Hawaiian feast in Las Vegas? Yes, of course, when you come to the Garden Buffet at South Point on Wednesdays where the luau-themed buffet beckons! Your choices include tossed Hawaiian salad, spring rolls, lomi salmon, Oriental noodle salad, soy and ginger crusted mahi mahi, and kalua pig, as well as Waikiki Beach barbecued pork ribs and Polynesian coconut curried chicken. You should use your player’s club card to get a $5 discount on the buffet.  

Gourmet Flavors

Las Vegas being Las Vegas, you will also find plenty of gourmet restaurants wherein to satisfy your gourmand side. Your best choices are:

Say “Bellagio” and your first impression is one of world-class luxury, which extends to The Buffet, the famous hotel’s restaurant. You will love the caviar bar where you can pair the caviar of your choice with blinis, sushi, buckwheat waffles, and ahi tuna cones.

Your thirst for caviar will also find its satisfaction at The Bacchanal Buffet, which has the Caviar Dreams Package with caviar and its accoutrements as well as a bottle of Dom Perignon. You can also purchase the Sasanian Imperial Caviar for $150.  

Indulgence is the name of the game at Sterling Brunch at Bally’s. On Sundays, you will love the unlimited portions of American sturgeon caviar and Perrier-Jouët Champagne, the perfect gourmet combo.  Your appetite for Alaskan king crabs, lobster tails, lamb, prime rib, truffle mashed potatoes, oysters, and banana bread pudding French toast, among others.
