The Buffet at Wynn just started serving street tacos.

Wynn is looking to street food for culinary inspiration. The Buffet’s new fare, like street tacos and ramen served only during dinner, is decidedly and refreshingly non-fancy for one of the fancier, higher-end all-you-can-eat options on the Strip.

Carne asada, carnitas and shredded chipotle turkey—yes, turkey—tacos are hand-made to order with a variety of additional fillings—onions, salsa, guacamole and more—prepared fresh by buffet chefs. Try all three. They’re small, almost bite-sized. The standout: carne asada.

At the ramen noodle station, guests choose pork tonkotsu, chicken shoyu or miso broth. To customize each small bowl, noodles, wood ear mushrooms, blistered corn, crispy pork belly and cilantro are available. The miso broth is savory, and the egg noodles are thicker than the average ramen—a plus.

You can now get your ramen fix at an unlikely place on the Strip.

Keeping with the casual food theme, new to desserts is a no-frills shaved ice with a variety of flavors including lychee, coconut, passion fruit and strawberry. Dinner is $39.99, and the gourmet dinner on Fridays and Saturdays with additional menu items is $40.99.

The Buffet Wynn, 702-770-7000. Open daily for breakfast at 8 a.m.; lunch 11 a.m.; dinner 3:30-10 p.m.
