Bacchanal Buffet

Caesar's Palace
3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 731-7928

When in Vegas . . . go to a buffet! Two years ago, Howard and I tried the buffet at Wynn and Paris Hotel, but there are new contenders now. They're bigger and more extravagant and pricier. We debated between Bacchanal and Wicked Spoon, the most talked about buffets in this city. Not wanting to expand our waistline and deplete our wallet too soon, we decided to pick one. Since Bacchanal is voted as #1, we went with it.
One of the specialties in Vegas buffets now are plated dishes. There are still platters and hot plates, but now, if you want presentation, you get it. Because everything is a tasting or sampling, I loved looking for the dishes in mini cocottes, cast iron pans, and little deep fryer baskets. It's a miniature wonderland!

You're also presented with a tiny silicone clip when you enter the buffet. Helps you grasp all the hot plates and dishes being served!
Of course, there's still some hits and misses. We found the sushi lacking, the platters looking like a mess and loose rice falling off the rolls. Some stations had better service than others. With all of the accolades, we also suspected that the dinner buffet had much grander food.
Just some more photos of the dishes that day.
Large seafood selection.
Shooters of all kind!
Egh, the mini sliders were a no-go for us.
Comfort food.

Tacos! Better than the restaurant we tried in the Linq. Made to order!
Ice cream and gelato. Found this very runny and half melted by the time you reach your table. I don't think their display case is cold enough. Or perhaps all the opening and closing of the lid.
Cute little chocolate cones topped with popcorn.
Cake pops.
Cakes and crumbles.
Carrot cake.

Whoopie pie!

To my surprise, I loved this green tea cookie. Soft on the inside with gooey matcha filling. I would love to know the recipe for this.

Overall, an incredibly filling lunch. If there still there, go for the sweet potato spheres. They were absolutely amazing with a crunchy outer shell!
