Gir's Weekly Column: Volume 45

Hey, hey, hey, readers on the Daily Magi and the Magi Football Blog. It's me, Gir Todafunk, with another weekly column. This week, we're headquartered at Encore Las Vegas ahead of our game with the UNLV Rebels tomorrow. This game is going to determine who gets to host the 2054 Mountain West Conference Championship Game in two weeks. Encore's a pretty nice hotel, and relevant to our interests in terms of everything that matters. But we're not here to necessarily soak up in luxury. We're here to win a game.

We're here to Wynn a game. Muhuhuhuhahahahah. See what I did there? I am so full of it, especially after I took my most recent interceptions 41 yards to paydirt in our 91-7 grilling of the Wyoming Slowpokes-er, Cowboys. Huehuehuehuehue, oh you won't believe how I over the moon I feel today. After another day of practice, all of us hit the buffet. We went to the Wynn's buffet, and it's pretty average but it did fill us up and that's they important thing.

Believe it or not, the best buffets in Las Vegas serve Indian food. So here are my top 10 buffets to eat in Las Vegas.

Mount Everest India's Cuisine, 3641 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102
Great balance of heat and sweetness in the items here. Our welcome lunch took place at this buffet. The garlic naan and curries are world-class.

Texas de Brazil, Town Square Shopping Center, 6533 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Steakhouse! Steakhouse! Steakhouse! The best steakhouses tend to be Brazilian in nature, and this one in Las Vegas is the best of them. However, the salmon, mahi mahi and shrimp are also commendable.

Mint Indian Bistro, 730 E Flamingo Rd, Ste 10, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Some more heat, located near UNLV. Samosas here are top notch, as well as the tamarind chutney and the national dish of the United Kingdom, the infamous -[sic] chicken tikka masala.

Saffron Flavors of India, 4450 N Tenaya Way, Ste 115, Las Vegas, NV 89129
More heat! More flavor! More wow. Another place that has solid garlic naan. This may be a mainstream food item soon. Portions are also man-sized. Which means, you will be not be disappointed with your meal. Unless Indian is not your fancy.

Bacchanal Buffet, 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
The best seafood is here: oysters, clams, crab legs. And yes, they have dat prime rib. As well as ramen! The breakfast of champions! And gamers playing on their XBox Five. I confess, Mitakihara is XBox Five and PS10 territory.

Buffet of Buffets, 3475 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Some more solid crab legs can be found here, at this buffet which is actually a network of buffets. Boy, they sure upped the ante here.

India Palace, 505 E Twain Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89169
Another Indian buffet hangout. Garlic naan is up to standards, the lamb chops are the ticket, and yes, the chicken tikka masala is a hit.

Wicked Spoon, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
It's more than just chocolate covered strawberries and bone marrow at this popular buffet, and it's more than just gelato. The mac and cheese station is something I have not seen before, but it's there. Good service, too.

India Masala Bar & Grill, 1040 E Flamingo Rd, Ste F, Las Vegas, NV 89119
One more Indian buffet? Why not? Cilantro Naan is what they serve hjere, as well as chicken tikka masala. Also a must-try: the pistachio kefir.

Cici's Pizza, 3059 N Rainbow Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89108
The best pizza is here. Ironically, they don't do delivery. But they do offer a buffet worth gormandizing over.

That is my top 10 buffets to invade in Las Vegas. Hope you try one of those. Next week...we have another bye week. Hmmm, maybe I will divulge some of the eats served at McGann's, the official main pub of the Roseluck Arrow Boosters and Men About Town. We'll see. Stay tuned. I am Gir, Mr. Wonderful, signing off. You are not alone.
