With over a hundred F&B outlets within SkyAvenue itself, it is really not an easy task to look for a personal favourite. There are just too many good ones. Besides, with new items introduced to the menu regularly, an eatery can move to the top of the list simply because of that one food or drink.
Today, I have complied a list of top 8 snacks and specialities outlets in SkyAvenue. Do take note that this is my own preference, and may not reflect yours. On the other hand, if I can make repeated visits to them, there surely is a reason (or attraction).
So, here it goes, in alphabetical order:
dal.komm Coffee doesn’t just serve good coffee to wash down the sweet pastries, the ambience here is amazing as well.
Having visited before, I instinctively ordered the same drinks that I ordered during the first visit. Perhaps, I enjoyed them so much that they were retained in my subconscious mind?
I paired the beverages with Strawberry Lava Cruffin. What a delicious dessert this was, I am sure you can tell from my photo!
This is a new outlet that sells drinks, very colourful drinks! There are different categories of beverages: Butterfly Series, Cloud Series, and Tea Series, among others.
Served in 550ml-sized tall, transparent bottles, the beverages are mixed in layers on top of ice cubes, which give off a beautiful colour combination. These concoctions are best consumed within two hours. When ready to drink, turn the bottle upside down, instead of shaking it.
If you love piping hot takoyaki balls, you should try Gindaco. Also like Eggette Lab, Gindaco Takoyakis are served in a variety of flavours. Get them in six or eight pieces.
May I suggest that to compare the taste of Gindaco sauce, to also order the Original? Seen here are the Original and new topping, Ebi Mayo.
Other toppings include Yakisoba and Negiodako, just to name a couple of them.
I Love Yoo!
The observant reader would realise that I had just written about SkyAvenue’s I Love Yoo! Well, that was from my previous visit.
I Love Yoo!, as mentioned, is an eatery that’s dedicated to the Yoo Tiao. It is also included in this 24-hour food trail, much to my delight. As you can see, the Yoo Tiao is a must in every serving.
I remember that I was supposed to have the Fragrant Herbal Salted Chicken, a signature dish, the last time I dined here, but it was sold out. I finally got it! Woohoo!
I have always been tempted by Llaollao’s natural frozen yoghurt (froyo). I pass by the NU Sentral outlet regularly but it is always packed. What a joy that I managed to fix my craving here!
My medium-sized Llaollao was topped with black chocolate sauce, Oreo and Chips Ahoy. Can you tell yet what’s my world’s favourite flavour?
Serving the most sinfully delicious desserts is Madame Waffle. I crave for this artisan premium Belgium Liège waffle café to arrive in Ipoh but it doesn’t look like it’s coming anytime soon.
While up on the mountains, it was a wonderful opportunity for me to try the King Durian Gelato Crème Brûlée Crêpe. This is newly introduced by Madame Waffle, so don’t miss out this chance for a taste.
Tian Ma Bird Nest
Of all the F&B outlets at SkyAvenue, Tian Ma Bird Nest ranks very high for me because I believe in the potential of bird’s nest in making me more beautiful.
This time at Tian Ma (Heavenly Horse), I was served with Chicken Porridge with Bird’s Nest and Bird’s Nest Coconut Juice. Price for Chicken Porridge is RM38 for one bowl and RM19 for the second bowl. Do take note that the latter is only available this June.
Hurry, Tokyo Secret has a new item on their menu, and it is called Syukurimu. It is an almond crispy coating filled with sweet, creamy delectable custard. Selling at RM9.90 per piece, one isn’t enough.
Want more? Buy six at RM49.50 to enjoy a discount of RM1.65 each. Don’t say I didn’t tip you off!
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!
