Las Vegas Desserts, compare to LA desserts.

The last 2 posts are about LA desserts, now I want to show you Las Vegas desserts from the hotel buffet. can you tell the difference of the desserts between the two cities?



The desserts in Las Vegas are more fancy, smaller portion and more delicate, it's more like an art piece. Obvious it's more expensive if you buy these in the pastry shop, but since it's in the buffet, it's all you can eat, so you can get your money back and if you break down the price by pieces it's not as expensive if you buy it in the pastry shop. And also you can get creative, combine 2 or 3 desserts together to make one customize by you. How fun is that? And the color is amazing.

LA dessert is more about portion size, bigger and more the better. 


Desserts in Las Vegas looks like they're in a pastry competition, they're either in small or cute cups. They look so good, I don't want to eat it sometimes, feels like it's destroying a piece of art.

Dessert Paradise ~~~~~

Who doesn't love desserts? Actually, desserts are the best part of the meal, I can't wait till I finish my food so I can start on the dessert. Remember on my last post, I said that I got this heavy Nikon professional camera? It give an new meaning of taking pix of your food. check out the different lighting.



Did you see the different lighting? it's take at the same angle but with the option of new technology you can have different color on the image before you even use photoshop.

 

Here's an example of same lighting but different angle of this delicious strawberry cheesecake at Monterey Hills Restaurant in Monterey Park, CA. So awesomely yummy!!! You gotta try it.



Here's turtle sundae at Joe's Crab Shack, it's a seafood restaurant, and I got this free on my birthday. it's vanilla ice cream with brownies and caramel sauce on top and some walnuts.



Claim Jumper's famous mother load chocolate cake. you will need to share just one slice with others. you can not and will not finish one slice by yourself.


Here's more yummy pasty.


Had enough? Nob? here's more dessert and pastry.


Before on birthdays, people only buy cakes, now you can get cupcakes, it's like a mini cake, everyone gets a cupcake and you don't have to cut it, or you can have donuts or ice cream cakes, there's so much choices for birthday cakes. Here's more cupcakes.

more yummy food, can you handle it?

I love food, just love love love, here's some more yummy pix of more foods that I took over the years. When I go to restaurants, I like to take lots of pix, I collect bottles, those last, but the food you ate at restaurant does not last long. So I took lots of pix, it's like my life diary. When I look at all these pix that I took over the years, I remember which restaurant I went and which place I visited. 


I love ribs, it's yummy but sticky, make sure you get lots of napkins.

 

Shakey's pizza, I had my first birthday party at Shakey's, it's so awesome, their salad isn't exactly luxury version but their fried chicken is so awesome and juicy and yummy. They have regular pizza and more expensive pizza and thin or thick are all good. They have a lunch special called Bunch a Lunch, it's all you can eat buffet, they have dessert pizza either oreo or apple pie pizza, can you imagine it?


So maybe now it's a perfect time that you can start your own food diary or life diary. It's fun and easy now with cell phone photo option. I recently brought a small tiny Nikon camera and I can take it anywhere I want, and everywhere I go I always carry my phone, if you mute the phone it won't make a sound when you take pix. If you're taking pix out in public, just avoid taking other people's face then you won't have any problem. I don't really have problems taking pix at the restaurant. I also have a lot of take out foods and before I eat it, I took pix so I can remember them.


I love the bento, it's Japanese lunch box, it has salad, California rolls, tempura and your choice of meat. 

I got a more professional Nikon camera, those heavy ones that you hang on your neck, it's awesome, it has different option when taking food, different lighting and check out these 2 different color.

I also like Vietnamese food, these are similar to the Chinese food spring rolls but instead of fried, they used rice paper, so it's softer and their sauce is different.

If you're a beginner taking food diary pix, you can start by taking 2 different kinds of pix, one closed up on the food, one far away to take the whole scenery. you can take pix from the top, from the side, or turn it in different angle to make it look interesting. I love my pix, they look different and very interesting. Use your own visionary and play it with color, try to put different food together to make it like a painting.
