With over a hundred Food & Beverage outlets in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting, one needs to visit numerous times just to dine at a fraction of the restaurants. Well, here is a list of Top 6 recommended restaurants that I have compiled, so that you won’t feel overwhelmed and will know which to “attack” first, as a newbie to Resorts World Genting in general, and SkyAvenue in particular.
Check out my personal favourites, in alphabetical order.
Ah Yip Herbal Soup
This was my second visit to Ah Yip Herbal Soup at SkyAvenue. While the first time was a heavy meal of Ipoh Bak Kut Teh, Ginseng Stew Chicken Soup and Bean Paste Duck, this time was a very light meal with just two varieties of herbal soups. Ah, that’s what Ah Yip is well known for.
We had Mushroom Fish Bladder Soup and Coconut Chicken Soup – both are signature soups on the menu. Drinking herbal soup, it is a good idea to know the benefits you are seeking from the herbs. For example, Mushroom Fish Bladder Soup promotes health and strengthens body system.
If you are looking for other tonics, get recommendation from the friendly staff, who’d be more than happy to assist.
I love Babajia for its Peranakan theme. This “Baba House” is where you should head to if you seek Peranakan cuisine while visiting Resorts World Genting. I dined at Babajia previously and remembered that I loved my food very much, so I ordered the same two items: Nyonya Laksa and Char Kway Teow.
This time around, I added a plate of satay. When the satay was served, I was shocked at its XXL-sized skewers. Can you see how large they are?
Babajia is one of the handful of eateries at SkyAvenue that opens for 24/7. If you are someone who craves for food at odd hours, Babajia should be your top choice.
Are you into grill-cum-steamboat dining concept? If this is your kind of cuisine, look out for Bar.B.Q Plaza, a newly opened eatery at SkyAvenue.
I do admit that self-cooking Mongolian/Japanese style barbeque does not rock my boat but I was game for the experience and was lucky to have a dining mate who enjoyed doing all the cooking.
We ordered the Value Set priced at RM138.80, good for four pax. Thus, there were four bowls of rice, four glasses of drinks and high-quality meat enough for four. This set came with free cabbage refill, too.
Wasn’t I happy to discover that I was to visit BMS Organics again. Do you know what BMS stands for? It’s Body, Mind, Soul. This is a meat-free restaurant that serves healthy food only.
One of my regular items when dining at BMS Organics is the BMS Soy Milk Curry Laksa with handmade noodles. The taste and flavour of the curry is on point every time.
Meat-free or healthy food (MSG-free) does not have to be tasteless. Try BMS Organics to be convinced.
The joy of eating boat noodle, a Thai-style noodle dish, is to see how high you can stack your bowls. The idea for these mini bowls originated from the Floating Market of Ayutthaya in Thailand, where it is impractical to use large bowls.
At SkyAvenue’s Boat Noodle, each bowl of noodles is priced at RM2.50. Toppings go for another RM2.50 per bowl as well. The three popular toppings are fried chicken skin, fried wanton skin and fried chicken meatballs.
Led by Outlet Manager Ahmed Shuvo, the crew here is one of the friendliest I have met in SkyAvenue. Definitely worth a second, third and fourth visit.
I bumped into my Ipoh friends when dining at DÔME Café. They told me that they were looking for really kaw coffee and ended up at DÔME. I reminded them that they are not in Ipoh, best known for our white coffee, therefore, they have to make do with what’s available. Luckily, DÔME Café is said to offer the world’s finest coffees.
Seen here are some of DÔME Café ‘s signature items, which we ordered upon the recommendation of the restaurant manager. It was a delicious second round of breakfast, that I must say!
If you are also from Ipoh, you might want to know that it is very convenient to visit SkyAvenue! There is a bus that departs daily for Genting Highlands from Terminal Amanjaya at 10.30am. The fare is only RM35 one way (adult). Passengers disembark at First World Hotel, which is connected to SkyAvenue. The trip takes about 3.5 hours one way. Enjoy yourself!
