never too much of a good thing.

Heaven @ the Bellagio buffet. The surrounding air of the creme brulee trays smelled like Black Friday at Wal-Mart. Someone seriously almost got hurt by a ramekin that rolled off the tray and onto the ground as hands furiously snatched the cups faster than the burnt sugar could have a chance to harden atop them. My friend Reggie mouthed to me ‘take two!’ as we waited while they were torched. It was beyond insane!

On our pilgrimage to the buffet, our server let us in on his top 3 desserts at the dessert station: 1) the creme brulee, 2) ‘a chocolate thing’ that was not being served that night, and 3) ‘chocolate mousse torte’ – a silky, light and creamy mousse atop a hazelnutty marzipan-ish, ferrer rocher-like crust.

Tip #1 – Brulee is best when ‘Sugar In the Raw’ is sprinkled on top of them!
