Las Vegas Eats - Part 2 - Buffets

Las Vegas is one big buffet. My eyes feasted on so many fascinating and entertaining sights. It’s a big city buffet of hotels, casinos, bars, clubs and shopping. Shopping in the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets was also pretty amazing. But above all that, my taste buds feasted on a lot of good food. When visiting Vegas, one must visit a buffet restaurant.  Just like riding the Shinkansen train in Japan or visiting the “walk of fame” in Los Angeles. 

The buffets are massive and the varieties of dishes are numerous. Also, the prices are reasonably priced. We’ve visited a few buffets during our stay in Vegas. My favourites are Spice Market and The Buffet at the Bellagio hotel. I will let the photos do most of the talking for these two amazing buffet restaurants.

Spice Market

We went to Spice Market as part of a 24 hour Buffet Of Buffets pass ($49.99 plus tax). The pass gives you access to about 7 buffets within 24 hours. The awesome Spice Market is located within Planet Hollywood's casino. It features food from around the world such as Mexican, Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern and American. To top it all up, the big range of desserts are available.

I like both the American and Middle Eastern sections. The ribs (which is my favourite out of the whole spread) were so falling of the bones and smothered in tangy barbecue sauce. While the skewered kebabs & baba ghanoush dip were full of flavour.

Spice Market was voted #1 buffet in Las Vegas.

The Buffet at the Bellagio Hotel

This is my absolute favourite in Vegas. The Buffet is located within Bellagio's casino. I've got two words for this buffet, "massive" and "quality". For a gourmet dinner on Friday and Saturday, it's US$36.95 per person tax inclusive.

Beef Wellington

Racks of lambs

Maple seared salmon

Beef ravioli with wild mushrooms and sherry cream sauce

Five cheese tortellini with walnut pesto

Five spice pork belly

Pork ribs



Pistachio macarons

They have monster meats like roasted prime rib, racks of Asian inspired pork ribs, roast lamb and more. Everything you want from antipasto, stir-fries, pastas, gourmet pizza, paella, dimsums, seafood, sushi, and a wide range of desserts.

Even with the buffet spread being enormous, food quality does not diminish. It is definitely superb and a must in your list of buffets to visit in Vegas.
