Las Vegas is a short trip from Southern California so many of us have gone repeatedly and make it a point to see each resort as they open. The newest area is “City Center”, gorgeous in the Las Vegas tradition.
THE FABULOUS COSMOPOLITAN BUFFET
I am sharing my unprecedented buffet experience at The Cosmopolitan. No one will appreciate this buffet more than our Spark Friends. We think alike with similar weaknesses. This is our Buffet folks!
First and foremost, it was all very healthy and delicious. I loved how they portioned it out for us.
Typically in a buffet, there are these huge trays filled with delicious dishes with a big serving utensil for you to take several portions. Most people tend to walk back with a plate overfull of tons of food with the intention of going back for more.
That won’t happen to you at the Cosmopolitan Buffet. You take a large plate that you fill with little plates. You are going to have to make another trip once that place is full and they fill up fast.
I normally overeat at the Buffet then spend the evening moaning for hours because I piled my plate sky high. You just can’t do that at the Cosmopolitan’s buffet. You would have to make 20 trips. The way they have set this up, stomach has enough time to signal that you are full and you will quit on your own. This buffet is genius! Does that make sense?
Next, the desert bar was fabulous. Primarily fruit, delicious and fresh.
No giant trays of bread pudding. Again, it was all portioned out with healthy eating in mind. It was perfect for a fruit challenged person like myself.
I cannot stress how wonderful my dining experience was. I walked out happy and very full, but no pain. Self control came easy and for the first time I ate at a Buffet where desert was not my focal point, it was the scrumptious food.
A DIFFERENT NIGHT, DIFFERENT BUFFET
Historically in Las Vegas, I start my meal with a few Creme Brule then end it with a few more. All said and done I will eat about 10 Creme Brule, a few servings of bread pudding, some ice cream with topping, a slice or two of pie & some cake. REALLY! I assume that is what most people do.
I surprised myself, a definite Woo Hoo moment. I was controlled and appropriate having just ONE Creme Brule and ONE bite of the next.
I had 3 tiny servings of bread pudding and that is good for me. I did not have to go to my room to moan and groan in pain for hours like I usually do. That felt so good!
All those articles and blogs have taught me I do not have to abuse food or ignore it. I just have to enjoy eating in an appropriate manner that allows me to be happy and healthy.
If you are buffet challenged then you must go to the Cosmopolitan buffet. You won’t be able to overeat and your dining experience will be fabulous with a happy ending like mine.
