There’s nothing worse than sitting on your computer in the middle of the day and checking out all these great pictures of food that John Chow has a habit of posting on his blog. It’s like torture! Well, this weekend I wasn’t up for writing anything that took too much brain power, so I decided to try my hand at making John Chow jealous for a change since his last restaurant experience wasn’t all that great. My wife and I decided to hit up the casino for dinner on Sunday night, so here are the pictures:

I always love going to the Beau Rivage casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. It almost makes me forget that I’m stuck in this state for a few more weeks! Immediately inside the main entrance, you find yourself in the middle of this huge, beautiful lobby.


After arriving, we walked around for a few minutes trying to decide whether to eat at Olives, a really nice restaurant that we went to on our last anniversary, or at the buffet. In the end, my stomach couldn’t resist the sound of “all you can eat”. Here’s my first plate:

Roast beef, beef and broccoli with lo mien, an eggroll, green beans, cucumber salad and antipasto. The buffet comes with free drinks, including these cute mini beers:

Of course, you’ve got to ask for a few of those to do you any good! :) After about 10 minutes, I was ready for round two:

There’s a ton of seafood at this buffet including all kinds of fish, shrimp and crab legs, but since I can’t stand seafood I ate a lot of the same stuff twice. The beef with broccoli and lo mien again, antipasto, seasoned potatoes, brick oven pizza, green beans and my favorite- alligator sausage! (That doesn’t count as seafood does it?)

To top it all off, I had a slice of Dutch apple pie, some strange type of brownie and a cup of coffee.

On our way out of the restaurant, we saw a bunch of people losing their paychecks on the floor.

The night was still young, and the Hard Rock hotel & casino is right next door, so we decided to walk over there.

We didn’t do much there besides walk around and look at some of the memorabilia.

We finally decided to call it a night and head home after a few hours. Maybe next time, I’ll give some of the restaurants at the Hard Rock a try. They looked really great and I haven’t eaten there yet. When I go, I’ll let you know how it was.

Alligator sausage is exactly what it sounds like…. alligator sausage! It’s served in some sort of a red sauce. It’s actually pretty good!

It is BY FAR not the most unusual thing I’ve eaten before. It can’t compare to donkey stomach lining or guinea pig! (You can thank Peru & Ecuador for those meals)

I thought it would have been filed under ‘endangered species’ 😉

How’d you get pics of the actual casino floor?

Maybe they aren’t too strict on the slots, but did you ever get your camera out near the tables??

The tables are under the long lights you see hanging from the ceiling. I took the picture from a seat in one of the bars. I kept the flash off, that’s why its so dark. :)

You ate a guinea pig???? What did it taste like? You got some interesting taste, something I don’t think I’d be brave enough to dive into. John R is the new John Chow, hehehe!

Yeah, I ate it in Ecuador. I thought it was Chicken, but it was rough and like gristle. Only after I was halfway finished with the meal did I find out what it really was… I don’t think it would have mattered, though. :)

The donkey stomach lining was a wide rubbery flat thing I thought was a noodle in my soup. Turns out that it’s just there for flavoring. No wonder I had such a hard time chewing it up!
