Welcome to the mother of all buffets.
The Wynn is a hotel Ming and Mum were drooling over when booking a place to stay, but it was fully-booked. However, a little research told us that The Buffet there was the place for breakfast. Literally the second we stepped through the doors of the hotel, we knew we had to stay there the next time we visited.
The entrance was beautiful, with the casino having big pathways and not obstructing everywhere you went, which was the case in a lot of hotels.
Oh, but you haven’t seen anything yet.
Welcome to The Buffet.
Am I Alice in Wonderland?
It literally had anything you wanted. ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.
Look at this spinning wheel with made-to-order pancakes!
I walked around, then came back, and saw there were red velvet pancakes on there.
And of course, the food pictures go on.
And this isn’t even half of it. There are only so many I can take.
I think Ming mentioned the owner of the hotel might be vegan, which would make sense because there were a lot of vegan-friendly options.
And lots of healthy options too, on that note.
After running around like a 5 year old at a candy store (really just Bianca at a buffet), I came back to the table to find Mama Bridges had already gotten me an orange juice.
Get the orange juice. It’s delicious.
Oh, and a nice pot of coffee too.
I didn’t want to be too greedy for my first course because I knew I’d be back for more, so I had a plate of the most random things.
Pizza with a mushroom dumpling, scrambled eggs and muffin? Oh yes, this happened.
Mum’s was more breakfast-focused but still a little weird. But what can you expect when you are given EVERYTHING to choose from?!
After gobbling down a couple of plates (I had to go back for more pizza, you know that common breakfast staple), Ming showed me that I had missed a whole section of the buffet.
The dessert section.
How could I have been so foolish?
It wasn’t dessert time yet though. What was still on my mind was the fact that I thought I’d taken a vegan chocolate chip muffin, but accidentally got (and demolished) a blueberry one. I had to amend my mistakes and run back to the muffin area.
Ming had seen me with my slices of pizza and gotten jealous, so she wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
And more of those mushroom pasta dumpling things. Mmmmm.
As we went back and fourth from the buffet, Mum was checking our Snapchat. She saw us film the dessert section and was all “WHERE IS THIS?!”
Next thing you know, she’s back.
After trying them all, she could say that everything was delicious (the strawberry one on the end maybe less so), but her favourite was this mango vegan pudding.
She ate it so quickly that she went back and got another one to share with her daughters. Mother of the year.
I was stuffed full by this point and restricted myself from the dessert before I came back with an entire ice-cream selection. But holding myself back could only last for so long, and the chocolate chip cookie obsession continued.
Say hello to what was a delicious vegan chocolate chip cookie.
Poor Papa Bear was back at the hotel doing some work. We didn’t make a huge fuss about breakfast so he wouldn’t feel bad that he missed it, so I hope he doesn’t read this post…
But Dad if you’re reading… Another Vegas trip?
