I'm going to Atlantic City for a few days, and while gambling is the main reason most folks go to a casino, foodies also know how important casino dining can be.
We will be at Trump's Taj Mahal. They have some really great dining available. Casino's are well-known for buffet dining. To be truthful, most buffets are a sucker bet. The food is usually awful. We have gone to the buffet at the Showboat because they usually give us a coupon, and that makes it cheap. It certainly doesn't make it good, though.
Trump's Taj, though, is different.
They have the Sultan's Buffet. While much smaller than Showboat's, the quality is easily seen. Last time the Mrs. had steak, and it was wonderful. Yeah, I said good steak on a buffet menu.
I'm not much of a meat eater, so I went for the pasta. It was excellent, aldente even on a buffet table.
But the highlight of the Sultan's Buffet for me is the dessert table. Again, slightly smaller than the Showboat's, but infinately better. I can't get exited about soft serve ice cream, but German chocolate cake, Italian pastries, and those kind of things really threaten my sugar levels.
It's hard to choose only one or two.
I'm leaving in a little while. I'll try to get and post some pictures of the best of the best.
