Does anyone know of a buffet with lobster tails besides the Rio?
Sterling Brunch at Bally's
$90 per person or $85 per person for Diamond if I recall correctly. Also includes bottomless Perrier Jouet.
This thread got me thinking as well that Las Vegas doesn't have a so called dedicated lobster buffet.
Boomtown Reno has the Famous Lobster buffet for $32.99
Valley View in San Diego has a nightly 7 nights a week lobster buffet for $32.99
It's quite odd that Las Vegas doesn't have a "lobster buffet."
I've only been to Valley View's lobster buffet. They have split lobster tails but an employee serves one tail per person. More tails can be obtained but you'd have to get back in line to get another tail. A little inconvenient but I guess they don't want people wasting.
I've never been to Boomtown and it looks like they serve the lobster whole. I like it that way which includes the claws and the head which has some of the guts which I like to dip the meat into for extra flavor.
I'm embarrassed to say that it's been soooo very long since I've had a whole fresh lobster because I love to dip the meat into the tamale that's in the head and body. We have spiny lobsters here in Hawaii and they are so expensive fresh that I haven't had one in ages. But it has a ton of that stuff in the body and head region and makes a great tasty dip for the tail meat. I'm salivating just thinking about it....
I also love the head juices of the Dungeness crab and enjoy turning the freshly cooked crab upside down then tear the head apart to catch all the gooey stuff in there. Then I dip the crab meat into the fatty juices and eat it with baked red potatoes or white rice. Yum!
Ah yes Electroguy, with crab I liked to dig out the head guts with a spoon and suck on all the gooey yellow colored guts, it is rich and flavorful and the best part of the crab to me. Shrimp heads as well are packed with flavor. In lobster the guts is greenish or grayish in color and has a little bitter taste but only slightly bitter but it packs a powerful taste and enhances the sweetness of the lobster meat.
