Bacchanal Buffet at Ceasar’s Palace, Las Vegas, NV
I went to the ‘use to be my favorite’ Wicked Spoon buffet a few months ago in Vegas and I wasn’t too thrilled. The food wasn’t bad but no where near the quality in the earlier days before it got super popular. Sadly, the food does not justify the long wait anymore.
This time around I went to the Bacchanal instead and I was pleasantly surprised. Looks like Caesar’s Palace really beefed up their game in the buffet competition. It isn’t hard to see that they ‘borrowed ’ a lot of ideas from the popular Wicked Spoon. Most of the food is individually portioned and even give you these cute little rubber grip to hold the hot plates. Their raw seafood bar is the most impressive of all (among Ballagio, Wynn and Wicked Spoon). They exceeded in both variety and quality. It is not often you can find some decent crawfish cooked in Cajun seasonings. Raw oysters were fresh and sweet.
Bacchanal buffet have a lot to offer. You can find simple American fare, the usual meat craving station, as well as Mediterranean, Asian, Italian and whole bunch of International cuisine. Of course, they have a sinfully beautiful dessert station as well.
I enjoyed my meal. I think the quality is better than the Wicked Spoon and Wynn. The variety is better than the all time favorite Ballagio. If they could keep up with the quality, I have little reason to visit other buffet spots.
