What to Eat in Resorts World Genting – First World Hotel Cafe, Coffee Terrace, Resort Seafood2 September, 2015
Resorts World Genting has a multitude of dining options- from snack shops, to restaurants, fast-food eateries and cafés, you’re definitely spoilt for choice in the entertainment complex. We round up some of the dining places with great deals that you shouldn’t miss when you are visiting Genting.
Breakfast at the First World Hotel Café:
If you’re an early riser up to catch the beautiful sunrise on Genting Highlands, the First World Hotel Café breakfast buffet is for you. Opening at 6am til 10.30am for breakfast, the café overlooks the gorgeous scenery below, so you can have your sunny-side up and toast, while taking in the beautiful views of the hills.
The breakfast buffet table gets pretty crowded at 7am, so set your alarm clocks early.
An array of croissants, puff pastries, breads and muffins await you, with a wide spread of jams and spreads. You can even toast your pastries up to make them crisp and warm as well.
Our favourite part of the breakfast buffet was the French toast and egg area, with chefs dedicatedly whipping up fresh sunny-side up eggs, omelettes and French toasts for you.
If you prefer a hearty breakfast, you can help yourself to nasi lemak, sausages, fried noodles, glutinous rice, chee cheong fun, curry, baked beans… In fact, there’s even a porridge area for those who prefer something light in the morning.
For something sweet, go for the fresh red and yellow watermelons- very popular options. We haven’t chanced upon yellow watermelons in Singapore yet, so this is definitely one fruit you should try out here in Genting.
Given the widespread array of food options for the breakfast buffet, one would expect the cost to be on the pricey side. On the contrary, this entire breakfast spread is a definite deal at only RM24.50 (~S$9 for adults), and RM12.50 for children (~S$4.60).
Lunch at Coffee Terrace:
Another popular buffet option for hotel guests at Resorts World Genting is the lunch buffet at Coffee Terrace. Decked in a contemporary and modern interior, the restaurant resembles a very high-end food court, with various buffet counters that offer cuisines ranging from Chinese, Western and Malaysian delights. With the wide array of choices, you can sample freshly grilled satay sticks, juicy chicken chops, while digging into your favourite plate of nasi lemak.
Dishes are regularly replenished to serve hungry guests, so there’s a never-ending supply of fresh, hot and delicious food for you to tuck into.
If you’re up for a healthier choice, try the salad bar, offering a range of healthy options from macaroni salads to fresh greens and fruits.
The dessert table is another of our favourites here at the Coffee Terrace. A staggering variety of desserts, it offers chocolate cakes, mousses, bread puddings- and an ice-cream/chendol bar, where you can grab a sweet and icy treat for your after-meal cravings. After all, there is always room for dessert. Desserts, like other dishes here, get replenished really fast, so if you see a fruit tart or cake you’ve been thinking about, just grab it first! It will probably get replaced by a new set of cakes the next time you return to the dessert bar.
With an astounding array of food choices, we definitely enjoyed ourselves at Coffee Terrace. Lunch buffet meals for adults are priced at RM38 for non-members, while the more pricey dinner option costs RM84, with fresh seafood. The lunch deal sounds pretty awesome to us (~S$14-15).
Dinner at Resort Seafood:
For dinner, if you are tired from all the buffet binging, we recommend trying out the newly upgraded Resort Seafood steamboat restaurant, where you can cook fresh ingredients in healthy and hearty soups.
One major highlight of the restaurant is the remarkable variety of around 20 sauces available, which are freshly prepared daily. We got really excited at the sauces table, mixing garlic and parsley with light soya sauce, scooping sweet Thai chilli sauce onto small saucers- We even spotted some guests loading small saucers of various dips onto trays. Hardcore indeed.
Seafood and ingredients are particularly fresh here as well. If you are up for a premium meal, you can even opt for fine-dining ingredients, such as Australian snow crab and Boston lobster.
We like the yin-yang pot concept too, since not everyone has different soup palates. We tried the tom yam and herbal chicken soup flavours- definitely a plus point for the tom yam soup base, with an addictive spicy kick. Once again, if you prefer premium soup stocks, you can try the resort fish head stock or kampong chicken soup as well.
For drinks, the restaurant serves Pu’er tea, and you can also select a special frozen Calamansi drink, refreshing with a perfect balance of sweet and sour to accompany your meal.
Finally, if your stomach still has some space left, try the chef’s special ice-cream dessert with fresh strawberries, grapes, jackfruits and other fruits adorning the top of the ice-cream base. A wonderful end to a great meal.
Set steamboat meals at Resort Seafood (Resort Hotel Level 1) are priced from RM108 to RM638 nett, depending on the number of pax and member discounts. With a large 256-pax seating capacity, your entire family will be able to enjoy a heartwarming dinner together over freshly prepared steamboat.
On a whole, we really pigged out at Resorts World Genting- Meals are truly value-for-money, with reasonably priced options for high quality food and delicious meals. If these are not enough for your ever-empty stomach, snack options and eateries around the entertainment compound will certainly help to fill you up as well. Don’t miss these dining options when you’re here at Resorts World Genting!
