Editor’s Pick: What to Eat in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting

Sky Avenue, the latest lifestyle shopping mall in Resorts World Genting has been opened for quite some time now. Located at 6,000 feet above sea level, SkyAvenue is easily accessible via the cable car from Awana SkyWay.

One thing about this Southeast Asia’s latest premium lifestyle destination is that it is a home to plenty of top brands from around the world. Finding things to eat at SkyAvenue can be a bit overwhelming on your first visit as there are so many restaurants around, but don’t worry, here’s a little foodie guide on where to eat at SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting:

FOR THE COFFEE AND TEA ADDICTS

Can’t live without your daily caffeine fix?Wanna chill out over a cuppa tea or two with your friends or loved ones in the clouds? Well, fret not. SkyAvenue have plenty of cafés for you to get your daily cure:

Starbucks Reserve
Outlet location: Level 3- T2B-31
Business hours: 10am-10pm daily

No, this is not your regular Starbucks Coffee joint. The Starbucks Reserve is more than just the usual grab and go coffee place. The coffee beans sold in Starbucks Reserve‘ often come from remote and rugged places, with limited harvests from lots as small as a family backyard. Each bags of coffee beans are extremely limited and can often last only a matter of weeks in Starbucks Reserve. The coffees are individually ground and brewed by the cup just for you, so if you are looking for a cup of coffee that you can customize to your liking, Starbucks Reserve is the place to go. I’m not an expert coffee drinker enough to recommend you any of those exclusively brewed coffees here at Starbucks Reserve, but if you need any help in customizing a cuppa, just ask your Coffee Master for recommendations. They will be most pleased to help you out in your coffee selections.

San Francisco Coffee
Outlet location: Level 4- T2C-07

If you want more than just coffees, San Francisco Coffee is a good place to grab a quick bite. San Francisco Coffee offers not only coffees to go but plenty of gourmet sandwiches and warm pasta too. You may dine in at San Francisco Coffee, or just grab and go, but I highly recommend dining in, especially if the weather is sunny as the outlet is located at al-fresco area with great view of the Genting Highlands sky.

Dal.komm Coffee
Outlet location: Level 4- T2C-10

Fans of Korean dramas will most likely find Dal.komm heartwarmingly familar. Featured repeatedly in a well known Korean drama series ‘Decendants of The Sun’, Dal.komm Coffee definitely lives up to the expectation of a nice dating spot. Offering irresitibly sweet drinks and desserts, Dal.komm Coffee will surely satisfy even the fussiest foodie. You may grab and go your coffees from Dal.komm Coffee, but I highly recommend dining in as the desserts are mostly good to be eaten immediately. Dal.komm Coffee is located at an al-fresco area in SkyAvenue where the outlet is overlooking the fantastic view of the vast Genting Highlands sky. Definitely a wonderful place for a date with your loved ones.
