Restaurants Not to Miss in Genting Highlands


 


1. Burger & Lobster
Head over to Burger & Lobster at SkyAvenue to meet live lobsters from Nova Scotia, transported from the deep Atlantic waters to your table 6,000 feet in the hills. Lobsters are kept in a custom-made seawater system where they are carefully monitored to ensure optimal conditions at all times. From Canada to Resorts World Genting, they remain plump, juicy, and in top form. 

At the London restaurant’s first outlet in Southeast Asia, Burger & Lobster serves what they proudly know from years of research and development – The Lobsters (lobsters steamed, grilled, or in a chilli sauce), The Lobster Rolls (classic, Seven Samurai, or The Chilli) and The Burgers (made from supreme halal-grade beef from Stanbroke, Australia, to produce the best texture and flavour). 

The signature dish at its outlet in Resorts World Genting is the Chilli Lobster which is served in a claypot with brioche.

The menu in Malaysia shares a theme identical to Burger & Lobster in London, with variations specially designed for Resorts World Genting. Its unique location on high altitude calls for special attention to kitchen operations, but the chefs are more than equal to the challenge. 
 



2. Beauty In The Pot 美滋锅 
With cooler climate guaranteed all year round, Genting Highlands is the ideal place to enjoy a hotpot meal. Located on the rooftop of the SkyAvenue lifestyle mall is Beauty in the Pot, where diners can enjoy this Asian favourite high in the clouds. The newly opened hotpot specialist however, woos female guests with its name and special emphasis to "Beauty", offering Collagen-filled hotpot broth in a unique way.  Inspired by the culture of food for health, the hotpot concept offers nourishing soup bases that promise rich flavours coupled with abundant benefits. An extensive menu of fresh ingredients and homemade specialties are also specially selected by the culinary team for a heavenly match, garnering them the accolade of "World's First Health & Beauty Hotpot in the Sky".


 
The 266-seater outlet boasts a pink princess theme interior design, inspired by the beautiful cherry blossoms that come every early spring. The restaurant’s flooring features white marble stippled with pink quartz, symbolising the cherry blossoms that fall on snow-clad land. From the entrance to the private rooms, the walls to the ceiling and even the charging points, everything is decked out in different shades of pink.

The new outlet serves six soup bases, including the following:
 Signature Beauty Collagen Broth (Scallop & Pork Bone Soup): More than six hours of hard work go into the making of this dense and collagen-rich soup. Freshly prepared every day, the soup features shark's cartilage as the main ingredient.
 
• Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup (Pork Bone Soup): This soup offers an extra boost for immunity and energy. Simmered for long hours, the pork bone broth is made with luxurious Chinese herbs including a whole ginseng, dang gui, dang shen, red dates, wolf berries and others. It is available in mild spicy, spicy and extra spicy options.
 
• Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth: The fresh kampong chicken is simmered over a small fire for at least two hours, and mixed with an array of premium herbs such as Solomon's seal, codonopsis root, Chinese angelica root and many more. The broth helps improve blood circulation and strengthens one's immunity.
 
• Cooling Coconut Broth: This is a unique culinary creation that will wow palates. The soup base comprises coconut flesh, and a variety of fresh ingredients such as spare ribs, chicken, chicken's feet and snow fungus. The chefs slice open fresh young coconuts and pour the coconut water into the soup base. It helps to nourish the lungs and improve the body's immune system.

There are also two other options: Longevity Wild Mushroom Broth (Vegetarian); and Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth. Customers can request for refills; superior stock is added to the Beauty Collagen Broth; Signature Spicy Nourishing Broth; and Cooling Coconut Broth while clear soup is added to the Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth. Doing so helps to maintain the original flavour of the broth.
 
 


3. Motorino
 
This slice of American-Italian cuisine comes from Brooklyn, New York and has been praised as one of the best authentic Neopolitan Italian pizza joints. All pizza joints deliver pizza, but none with as much class and finesse as Motorino. The only outlet in the country, Motorino at Resorts World Genting promises a pizza experience straight out of Naples, Italy, home of the world-famous Neapolitan Pizza. Get geared up for an authentic Pizza Napoletana encounter: check off this list of pointers and dive straight into bona fide Italian goodness. 
  • Crazy hot 
The pizza is cooked in a special wood-fired oven at 800-900 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Express pizza 
The small mouth and low dome of the oven gets the pizza cooked in 60 to 90 seconds.
 
  • Soft and chewy 
Unlike crispy American pizza, the Neapolitan is soft and chewy, thanks to a specific finely milled pure wheat flour with no additives.
  • Like a Frisbee 
A typical Neapolitan pizza is about 12 inches in diameter. Just nice for one.
  • Balanced trio 
Minimally topped, the Neapolitan strikes a careful balance among crust, sauce and cheese. Forget over-the-top cheesiness.
