That really does look good. Since we're on the food thing, how does the buffet at the VFW - Angeles compare? I know it's probably not even close but thought it might be ok. I think it's run by a German Chef, no?

Oh, from the looks of your pictures it would seem that you got a new cell phone...yes?

:)

Enjoy the grub lefties and thanks for sharing.

Yep, I lived two hours North on I-15 in St. George UT. Use to ride down there every few weeks just for fun. Or sometimes to the Peppermill (Best Western) in Mesquite NV. That was a good place too.

A few weeks ago, the MRS. to be, and I went to the City of Dreams in Manila and had their buffet. It equals or exceeds some of the best buffets I have ever been to in Vegas. REALLY GOOD. Multi stations where they will prepare just about anything you want from Fried Chicken to Peking Duck and the seafood was unbelievable; and you can of course have as much as you want (which we did).

The quality and excellence of the food and the impeccable service was well worth the high price.

Masarap

Miss the Golden Corral and Pizza Ranch, select Chinese eat-all-you-can spots, Royal Fork was another good spot, if only I could find something like this here at the same prices, similar foods.

We dinned once at the MOA and it was a Philippine eat-all-you-can Buffet spot called "Cabalen", boy did they run out of the good stuff quick like the roast pork, other sliced meats, tricky mirror system also, looked like allot of food but after we were seated I noticed it was half what was showing when we walked up and got in the food line... clever tricks, and all that was left after our first plate was fried fish, sushi rolls, some other greasy dishes, cost was a bit much also for what we got, 3 adults one child and the bill totalled 2,800 peso's we had two beers.

Sometime ago we went to a buffet in Mega Mall, I think is was called some like Dads. 400 peso per head. There was two different nationalities of food there. We wasted our money because we took some family who had never seen anything like it and were too shy to go for it big time. Loved the buffet in the Balagio Vagas and another at Lake Tahoe.

Bellagio is good but I thing my Vegas favorite is at the M resort.

Station casinos are a good value, can get bfast and lunch for less than $10, easy to get comped.

Went to one in Tahoe once that had an entire roast pig they were carving off of.

I'll agree with you there and that is why I will probably never return...but what do you expect when the Hollywood Glitz comes to PI.

Sure sounded nice though, I was stationed in Guam and the price wasn't much better in the early 90's something like $26 per plate but they had mini lobsters, those huge shrimp, tempura, sashimi, it was awesome but stateside sure wins on buffet prices.

Pizza is so dang expensive here and you get nothing for your meal, miss the Pizza Ranch chain stateside, they also had a large salad bar and another fried chicken and french fries spot, eat all you can for about $8 with drinks.
