    Blackjacker2, thank you for the words, I am glad you are enjoying this report!

    Currently on BJ right now, been sitting here for 90 mins now and up $100 so far, choppy but steady. Let's see if Pocky can grind something out.

    So another shoe went by and it still didn't pick up, left the table up $100.

    Walked by the book and thought about placing a bet on the Cardinals, but spread was 11, got scared and instead made a bet like this, wish me luck guys :

    Pocky’s VMB Vegas (Live?) Trip Report : Dec 3-12, 2015 @ Cosmo & Mirage

    So lunch at Aria buffet. The offerings are pretty similar as before and I covered it full in my April TR so didn't do a full photo op. The only thing noticeably different was that for dinner they had a pasta station, but for lunch they have an Asian noodle station, where you can choose between tonkotsu (pork) ramen, miso ramen, and Vietnamese Pho. As usual I had three plates + bowl of noodle + dessert

    Plate 1, roast beef failed miserably, it was hard and chewy and I couldn't even swallow some of it. Make sure you wait for the best timing to get the right piece of meat. Mac and cheese pretty good, and fried chicken was awesome.

    Plate 2, lasagna was good, pizza was very good for a buffet, and fish and chips also not bad

    [​IMG]

    Plate 3, stirred vegetable is.....stirred vegetable, spring roll was terrible. Sesame ball was okay. Taco was awesome for a person that is not familiar with Mexican food. Fried chicken I had to go for a second, it was crisppy and juicy at the same time. Pork belly was surprisingly good, maybe it's because I like fatty stuff?!?

    [​IMG]

    Also had a bowl of miso ramen, nothing to write home about, average at best

    Desserts, spotlight of this lunch! Hot apple pie was good, flan was excellent, both cupcakes are moist and not too sweet, and the carrot cake is also delicious.

    All in all, I still feel this buffet is good for its value, and will certainly take it free every day, but probably no more than once per trip. Maybe I feel this is not as good as before because I already had a buffet at PHo?

    For those of you that care, here is what you can get for an extra $12.99

    Last but not least, cocktail and wine menu (who orders wine at buffets???)

    Pocky over and out.
