The Sky Is The Limit – Part 1

I was up at the new-concept lifestyle mall, SkyAvenue at Resorts World Genting recently for a food trail…


If you do not know it yet, the SkyAvenue mall is the latest addition at Resorts World Genting and consists of 1.434 million sq ft of gross floor area tenanted by an eclectic cohort of retail options and F&B establishments…

SkyAvenue is a unique retail concept conceived as an amalgamation of the things that Resorts World Genting do best: entertainment, dining and retail catered specifically to Resorts World Genting varied visitor profile and it will only be fully opened in 2018…

A mall which is 6,000 feet above sea level is quite different from retail in the city or the suburbs since people who come to Genting come for the experience – the cool weather, the proximity of things to each other, the ease of connectivity, and that little bit of excitement which comes from them knowing that this is no ordinary place, thus SkyAvenue was designed by levels, with a clear-cut personality to each different floors.

The first floor of SkyAvenue is just full of all things gastronomic, an amazing mixture of quick service restaurants, cafes, food kiosks, mid-range and bespoke food outlets. A total of 35 F&B tenants are represented on the first floor including Dragon-i, Din Tai Fung, Royale Vietnam, Dome, Morganfield’s, Just Heavenly, Acme Bar & Coffee, Gong Cha, Kyochon 1991 and Tampopo. Resorts World Genting has also bought the Malaysian franchises for three international F&B brands, namely London’s Burger & Lobster, the French Cafes Richard and American pizzeria Motorino.

So yours truly was given the chance to check out RichDad, Babajia, Domes, BMS Organics, Kyochon 1991, Tampopo Delicieux, Tokyo Secret, Madame Waffle, Just Heavenly and Inside Scoop…

Let me go through the restaurants and their offerings here…

Over at RichDad, which serves local favorites, we got to try out their Grilled Chicken Masak Merah RM29 and also their Rendang Beef Rice RM28, pretty appetizing… and for refreshments, I highly recommend their Strawberry Sunshine juice, which is a combination of watermelon, kiwi and strawberry…. it surely taste perfect…

And oh yes, for your information, RichDad as well as Babajia are restaurants that are opened 24 hours so you can simply pop in at any time of the day, even in the wee hours in the morning…

Truth be said, I was not quite looking forward to dining at BMS Organics as I was thinking it was gonna be bland, boring and unappetizing… well, most healthy food are just that right… wrong… BMS Organics served up The Organic Harvest RM22.90,  BMS Soy Milk Curry Laksa Handmade Noodle RM28.90 and a Herby Broth Pot with Multi Grain Rice RM33.90… I gingerly took a taste and fell in love with those dishes.. the Curry Laksa which is Chef Wan’s recipe is just perfectly tasty and the Herby Broth Pot is a healthy vegetarian Bak Kut Teh and the Organic Harvest salad with Passion Fruit Dressing was just delicious…

Kyochon 1991 naturally served up a dozen of their famous Soy Garlic and Red Pepper chicken drummettes and wingettes each RM33 .. which made my daughter squeal in delight as it was her favorite chicken…. to quench our thirsts, and put out the fire caused by the Red Pepper chicken, my drink of choice was the Sparkling Yuza drink RM9 whereas another fellow blogger pal had the Bori-Cha for RM8

I was also a naughty girl and could not resist sneaking into a NON-HALAL restaurant, Wanhoi Yamcha just to catch pictures of their dumplings which were simply irresistibly adorable…

See, the place is so pretty and the food even more adorable… so non Muslims, you really do not want to miss out this place for breakfast or brunch… the dumplings are so adorable and the food is good… or so my friends say so…..the BBQ Pork Bun in Zhu Zai shape RM14.80, Custard Pau RM14.80 and the Salted Egg Yolk with Lotus Paste Filling birds in the cage RM15.80 are just so instagram worthy…. Be sure to check out their Prawn Chee Cheong Fun, and err… if you are there for lunch, their Pan Fried Cod Fish with Preserved Vegetables and Mushrooms is to die for.. RM58.80…

Wanhoi Yamcha is opened at about 7 or 7.30am… to the breakfast crowd…

Dome might also be a great place to visit if you fancy some pasta, fish and chips or mushroom soup…The ambience is lovely and you can dine and watch the world go by….

This floor is also home to the all new Picturehouse, a cinema harkening back to the golden age of film, where theatres were architectural icons.

That is all for now, and will continue with the next part in a few days… hang in there and thanks for dropping by…
