The first annual All-Star Cochon was unimaginably overwhelming. It was pork, on top of pork, accompanied by another edible doodad, also sprinkled with pork. These dishes, ranging from simple finger foods to pork-infused desserts, were abundant enough to make any attendee's belly pop. It was a joyous festival for the "other white meat", to which it couldn't have celebrated any better.
14 harvest pigs, 4 renowned butchers, and 10 leading chefs from all over the country led this brigade. Everything was delicious, artfully-crafted, and enlightening to eat. My palatte level increased a few just from munching on some of the tastiest pork that I was fortunate enough to devour. How good was the event? Mind-blowingly good. Check out some of the highlights, along with pics from the event after the jump.

The Nomnom Burrito: a breakfast wrap loaded with spinach, egg, avocado, tomato, beans, potatoes and cheese.
In a city full of burgers and buffets, it’s sometimes easy to forget about the more fresh and cozy alternatives for a bite to eat. Here’s where Sunrise Coffee comes into place. By offering a wide variety of fresh wraps and baked goods (in addition to their outstanding coffees and teas), this place has become one of my favorite places to drop by when there’s some downtime in my life.
P.S. - They have vegan alternatives in their menu!
Sunrise Coffee is located at 3130 East Sunset Road, Las Vegas, NV 89120

Famous Dave's offers some legit meat-eating without breaking the bank. With their current Que for Two promotion, two people can eat 4 ribs, two pieces of chicken, two pieces of corn bread, and a choice of meat (we went for some chopped pork, as pictured above). All of which is available at the $20 spot. Not bad for some good barbeque eatin'. Plus, seeing that it won the LVRJ's "Best of" for the barbeque category, it'd be hard to go wrong with some Famous Dave's.

First off, let's break the ice. What is an arepa?
The arepa is a flat, round, unleavened patty made of cornmeal which can be grilled, baked, or fried. The characteristics vary by color, flavor, size, thickness, garnishment, and the food with which it may be stuffed, depending on the region. Arepa is a native sort of bread made of ground corn, water, and salt which is fried into a pancake-like bread. It is either topped or filled with meat, eggs, tomatoes, salad, cheese, shrimp, or fish.-Wikipedia
In summary, they are absolutely delicious. Read on to check out what I rolled out with after the break.

The fish & chips in the Studio B Buffet seem to be an overlooked gem hidden amongst the piles of prime rib and crab legs. Don't get me wrong, if I'm paying around $30 for the ability to eat until I pop, I'd like my stomach to burst with the most bang for my buck. Though fish & and chips are usually found sitting in most buffets, most of them are absolutely mediocre; tasting like processed fried fish rejects unlovingly poured from bulk bags. Studio B handles their fish a bit differently. By offering fish with a heavy dose of flavor, coupled with a sauce that amplifies flavor to the max, Studio B serves out a real winner.
For their fish, Studio B uses fried pollock. It is fried to a golden crisp, leaving an incredible juicy and flavorful fish inside. Traditionally, cod is used, but pollock is a great locally raised alternative that has a similar flavor. However, pollock tends to have a softer texture in comparison to its cod cousin. For a dip, it is served with a cream of mushroom based sauce with complements the fish amazingly.
Be sure to leave room on your crab-filled plate for this often unnoticed item on the buffet. Your stomach will thank you later.
The Studio B Buffet is located in the M Resort. More info can be found below:
