Las Vegas Buffets

So in February I went to Las Vegas to present a paper I wrote at an Anthropological Conference.  While there my husband had gotten great deals on our hotel that included 2 nights of free buffets.  I will admit I was really nervous, but we decided to see what they had to offer.  We went to Le Village Buffet in the Paris casino the first night, and we went to Spice Market Buffet in Planet Hollywood the second night.  On both occasions we went to the cashier and told her my needs, she then called the head chef and he came out and walked us around the buffet telling me what had gluten in it and what did not.  Obviously this was a huge risk because I didn't know how things were handled in the back, but I was reassured that everything was handled properly (take that for what it's worth, obviously your health is your first priority, so if you don't feel comfortable going, don't.).  There was actually a lot to eat at both buffets and I was completely full (rolling out the door really.) and quite happy.  I especially enjoyed the creme brulee, that is made by the same place in both buffets.  I ate way too many of those.  ^-^  All in all I thought it was a very wonderful experience.  It was time consuming to wait to be shown around, and actually I will admit I  was a little embarrassed a few times, but the food was good, and my husband and I had a great time, so I forgot a lot of the embarrassing moments quickly.  I am also pleased to say that I did not get sick from the experience, which made the trip even better.  So if you were wondering if you could enjoy a vegas buffet, now you know.  Go out and enjoy!
