Last Vegas Pig Out Part 1

El Hubby Cakes and I committed serious gluttony in Las Vegas. No parties or gambling for us. We pig out! We only get to do it once a year so we always make the most of it. Bacchanal Buffet was our first pig out stop. It's my absolute all time favorite buffet in Vegas. We went on a Friday lunch. I noticed there were less meats and seafood option, but everything we had was delicious nonetheless.

I like to eat by my own category. I'm weird, I know.

1. cold seafood/sushi
2. salads, cheeses and cold cuts
3. hot seafood
4. hot meats
5. desserts

I try to avoid carbs and starch so I won't get full too quick. I drink hot green tea to help settle my stomach, which allows me to eat more. It works for me!

Plate #1 is cold seafood and soup. Cold shrimp cocktail, mussels, tomato and carrot soup and ceviche. Their shrimp cocktail is my absolute favorite!

Plate #2 is cold cuts, cheese and a pretty glass of veggies. So yummy!

Plate #3 is hot seafood. Clams in a curry broth, garlic mussles, baked cod with miso, shrimp and grits and crawfish.

Plate #4 is meats and some sides. Pork ribs, tri tip with a little fat, Parmesan Brussels sprouts, cauliflower pop corn and a small steamed bun.

I had quite a lot of dessert for plate #5. My favorite are the Filipino inspired dessert.

They gave me my own pot of hot water for my green tea. Helps settle my stomach.

Second stop was at the Original Chicken Tender. Located at the food court inside the Luxor hotel. Came here late at night after hours and hours of ballin' out at the kid's arcades and walking on the strip lol.

I got the 3 piece chicken tenders with a side of french fries for $10. Yeah, it's pretty steep for chicken, but gawd dang, it's one of the best chicken tenders I've ever had. I wrote a review on Yelp raving about this place. Nice crispy coating and tender meat on the inside. And the french fries were awesome too.
