My husband, my son and I were in Genting Highlands for a short weekend tour last week, and we had somewhat a pre-Mid Autumn Festival reunion dinner in Resort Seafood Restaurant, Genting Highlands, courtesy of the good people from Resort World Genting. So, what can you have in Genting, you ask me? Granted, dining up there can be quite costly, but I assure you what I’ll be sharing with you is pretty much reasonable and worth every penny paid, considering the location.
Resort Seafood Restaurant, Genting Highlands is offering fresh exotic seafood dishes and dining hot pot style, and I think it’s just perfect for the upcoming Mid Autumn Festival.
The restaurant have a very spacious dining area and I reckon it’s perfect for family reunion or group dining. So, here’s sharing what we had the other day; Steamboat Set for 8 pax.
Set for 8 pax consists of; A pot of soup with a choice of Tomyam Soup or Herbal Chicken Soup, A platter containing: Shittake Mushroom, Enokitake Mushroom, Chimaji Mushroom, King Oyster Mushroom, Fatt Chou Fishball, Fried Vegetables Ball, Fu Chew Fishball, Bean Curd Roll, White Bean Curd and Pacific Clams. Also in the set but served on side platters are Grass Prawns, Grouper Slices, Ostrich Meat, Chicken Supreme Slices, Poh Choy, 8 pieces of fresh chicken eggs and King’s Noodles. The set for 8 pax costs RM456 for members and RM502 for non members.
We were served Herbal Chicken Soup that day. Much to my chagrin. I’ll be completely honest with you. I’m not a fan of everything herbal. They turn me off. I usually turn away from them, but this one is not so overwhelming on the palate. The taste was not so distinctive and strong, so I guess it is pretty tolerable although I personally prefer the Tomyam soup as my steamboat soup base.
Assorted sauce for dippings is available for your picking.
Platter for 8 pax: Shittake Mushroom, Enokitake Mushroom, Chimaji Mushroom, King Oyster Mushroom, Fatt Chou Fishball, Fried Vegetables Ball, Fu Chew Fishball, Bean Curd Roll, White Bean Curd and Pacific Clams.
King Noodles. Fantastic. The King Noodles are smooth in texture and does not get soggy easily.
Poh Choy. Apparently none of us at the table that day was a fan of greens, so although they are fresh, it remained untouched by the end of the meal.
Fresh chicken eggs
Chicken ham slices. The children seems to fancy these.They were gone in a jiffy once they were cooked.
Grass Prawn. They surpassed our expectations, to be honest. Naturally sweet and flavourful.
Garoupa slices. Somehow we mistook these as chicken slices and was really surprised when we consumed them.
Ostrich Meat. We were not aware that these red slices of meat are ostrich meat and those who doesn’t take beef because of religious diet restriction did not touch it. Therefore, my family and I finished up the entire platter. Honest mistake. We thought it was the common beef and only discovered that it was actually ostrich meat by the end of the meal. That said, the meat texture was much lighter, smoother and much more delicious in comparison to the common local beef and perhaps second only to Wagyu beef slices.
Chinese Tea is highly recommended to cleanse your palate with but being a lover of all cold drinks to accompany my meals with regardless of cuisines, I’ve requested for Calamansi Ice Blended instead. Sourish, refreshing and definitely addictive.
The restaurant have other dishes offered on their menu, so if you are not into steamboat communal dining, be sure to flip the menu for other things. They are famous for Chinese cuisine, so do check it out.
