Buffet-MGM Detroit-excellent!

Had lunch at the MGM buffet Tuesday, fantastic(even better that it came from winnings)! By far the best lunch buffet I've ever had! Everything I had was good. I had Mongolian barbeque-shrimp and veggies, asian sauce. Very good, shrimp done just right. Lamb chops were also done perfectly, not overdone like many expensive buffets do. Even mac n cheese was wonderful, very creamy and good! The selections of Chinese food were all top notch, as good as anything I've ordered in a Chinese restaurant, kept at right temps and not sitting for long. Scallops in black bean sauce was great! Large, tender scallops. Even salads were great, which I usually avoid in buffets. Frisee salad had this wonderful crispy proscuitto on top, like the crispiest, yummiest bacon! Mozarella and tomato salad also excellent, and they had selections of artisan cheeses and charcuterie(sp) meats, it was gourmet all the way, and the desserts! WOW! First time I even remember thinking "mmmmmmmm" at a buffet. Best gelato I've ever had, little Key Lime tart had flaky, buttery crust, chocolate mousse was very chocolatey and rich, it was all good, I would definitely go back for dinner if lunch was this good. On par if not better than the buffet at the Bellagio.

I wasn't able to get away at dinnertime, so Saltwater or Bourbon Steak will have to wait until next month. But they are two of the most gorgeous restaurants I have ever seen! As nice as anything I have seen in Vegas or New York. Puck's grille was also beautiful.
