Right now they have a fantastic addition to their Market Buffet and it’s called Shrimpapalooza!!!! You can experience Shrimpapalooza now thru October 30 for just $19.95 Sun-Thurs 4pm-9pm and $28.95 on Friday & Saturday (Unlimited Crab Legs!).
Belterra Park Gaming is on Kellogg next to Coney Island – in addition to gaming they have live horse racing and multiple restaurants!
The Market Buffet has all your favorites like a carving station and foods from every corner of the globe – Chinese, Italian and more… The thing I love about Belterra Park is that they’ve gotten chefs that specialize in a variety of foods to be sure that they keep it authentic.
But enough of all that – let’s get to the shrimp!
You’ll feel very Bubba Gump with every kind of shrimp you can think of! Of course I started with the butterflied fried shrimp – big, juicy and crispy – just how fried shrimp should be!
Then there was Drunken Shrimp with a zippy broth and a few scant veggies to make your meal balanced.
The Shrimp Alfredo Pizza might have had me drooling – if you look up “cheesy” in the dictionary – this picture is there. Hell to the yeah.
Teriyaki Pineapple Shrimp Skewers were very appealing and I was down with that – anything with pineapple is on my list to try.
This was new to me – Shrimp Creole and Shrimp Au Gratin – they may not look like much in a casserole dish but I really liked the Shrimp Creole!
Then I explored the rest of the buffet to see what round 2 might have to offer and they serve breakfast with house-made sausage and a table full of bacon. #yesplease
There was also a charcuterie board – how can you pass up salami and crackers – even just one!
Then the dessert bar – it’s always a bit of mystery of what you’re eating. What are these little purple frostinged boxes full of? I guess we’ll have to try them and find out!
So here was round 1 – shrimp, shrimp and more shrimp! I liked the butterfly shrimp and the shrimp creole best from this round.
The pizza was delicious as well – super cheesy with a nice crispy crust. It was a knife & fork pizza but still tasty.
I also got a fun t-shirt and an introduction to their newest addition to the team – Chef de Cuisine Michael Inferrera (on the left). He’s straight from Jersey – so it’s a bit of a culture shock but he’s hanging in there and doing a great job. He’s really excited about the additions he can bring to the team.
I had to go for Round 2 and try my two favorites: breakfast and mac & cheese. First – their mac & cheese is really really good. I love it! The breakfast is a fun addition as well – with biscuits & gravy as well as that home-made sausage I had to try. It was great!
Lastly – I saved room for dessert – pretty much every dessert of course. I didn’t eat them all – I was pick and just did bites of each and saved full consumption for my favorites. Starting at the top there was: Chocolate Lava Cake, Lemon Cake with Lavender Whipped Frosting, Cookie Dough Cake Pop, Chocolate Chip Cannoli, Pecan Pie Tart and Creme Brulee. The Lava Cake was my favorite although – I finished off the cake pop and creme brulee as well. The cannoli was also a good choice. The pecan tarte didn’t have enough pecan pie filling for me and the lemon cake was fine but I hate that whipped frosting. I like my frosting super sugary.
My friend Lou was raving about their Strawberry Gelato – she said the other Belterra doesn’t have the strawberry but this one does and it’s soooooo good. And it was!
And after all that – I even got a rewards card and it came with $15 free to play with! So we spun $15 away but it was fun.
Shrimpapalooza is on through the end of October and I’m running a giveaway for a buffet for 2 thanks to the team at Belterra Park. Enter below and tell me your favorite shrimp dish and you might be dining for free!
