Wynn Lunch Buffet
Wynn Las Vegas (last visit: September 2005).
There is a huge variety, and in general the quality is good. Desserts were a bit of a letdown - only a moderate selection, and most were pretty good but not special. Most foods were just warm; a few were very warm. I had:
· Prime rib. This was not the traditional whole prime rib, cut into rare pieces by a carver. It was already carved slices of meat, apparently cooked after being sliced. That being said, it was a hit: slightly pink, with a little crispy fat, tender, flavorful. Rating: very good+.
· Jerk chicken. Truly spicy, and not overcooked. Very good.
· Kobe meatballs. Slightly spicy, good texture. Good to very good.
· Smoked sturgeon. Good.
· Tempura rock shrimp. Good to very good.
· Salmon and scallop ceviche. Ok flavor and texture, but nothing special. Good.
· Red snapper. Juicy, good flavor; not overcooked. Very good.
· Roll. Average.
· Madelaine. Fair.
· Lemon curd tart. Good. Would have been very good, but the lemon flavor was not sour/intense enough.
· Creme brulee. Surprisingly, the sugar was properly caramelized and crackly. However, the cream was too soft. Good to very good.
· Chocolate mousse with brownie pieces and walnuts. The mousse was not too sweet, with a rich, dark chocolate flavor. The brownie chunks and walnuts were a good addition. Very good.
· Peanut butter cookie with candied peanuts. Good.
Over all rating: pretty good, but buffets aren't worth the money to me. The bill: $23.
