What’s a trip to Las Vegas without a turn at the buffet? For this trip, we tried the Buffet at Aria. We opted for the boozy meal which for brunch meat Bloody Marys, of course.

After looking over all the options including the fresh seafood, I started a little more breakfast-y. I went for the dumplings and porridge from the Chinese section. I like the Chinese food a bit better at Caesar’s Bacchanal Buffet. Aria’s weren’t that nice looking with broken wrappers due to over steaming. The siu mai (pork and shrimp) dumplings were decent though.

Then my plates started getting random with bits of sushi, quiche, seafood, bacon and sausage plus corn on the cob. I found the quiche pretty good.

Is it time to try the sangria? I vote yes! My friend decided we needed to make our booze add-on worth it so a round of beers also came.

That being the case, I started seeking out some carbs but still keeping the protein ration up. More Chinese food and seafood. The beef and broccoli was good.

I usually save the carving station for last but my friends insisted this was the best part about the Aria buffet. Indeed, that roast chicken is juicy. The carver said it was his favorite.

At last I felt the urge for something sweet. After gorging on all that meat, maybe some gelato? They didn’t have my favorite pistachio so I went with vanilla despite the many options.

I also picked up a bunch of fruit and some pastries. The mini whoopie pie was my fave next to the gelato.
