Did you know that there’s a food heaven in the sky? Well, there is. It’s in Malaysia, no less. I bet you don’t know. Okay, that may sound a bit farfetch; a food heaven in the sky. I may exaggerate a lil bit but I’m not exactly lying. There is a food heaven in the sky; SkyAvenue, that is.
Located at 6,000ft above sea level in Resorts World Genting, SkyAvenue is a mall that is offering you all sorts of exciting shopping and lifestyle experience. They have loads of eateries that offers delicious cuisines from all corners of the world. Deciding on what to eat when you are in SkyAvenue can be quite a feat, with so many eateries to pick from, so here’s a little guide on what to eat in SkyAvenue:
THE WARM AND FILLING STUFF
The weather in Genting Highlands can be quite unpreditable. Some days it’s nice and cool, and sometimes it’s chilled to the bones. The lowest temperature that I experienced in Genting before was 12’c. It was really cold, wet and windy. If you are looking for something to instantly warm your tummy, there’s two eateries that you might wanna drop by; I Love Yoo! And DOME Cafe.
I love Yoo! Level 4 T2C-02B
I Love Yoo! is an outlet that is specialized in selling Youtiao and porridge.
It is a perfect place if you are in need of a quick, warm meal.
Plain porridge, noodle with herbal chicken, taufufa and soya milk are among the must try things on their menu.
Dining at I Love Yoo! is pretty much fuss-free with it’s quick service. Highly recommended for those who are looking for a quick comfort on the tummy.

Love noodles? I know I do. Slurping up a bowl of noodles generously filled with condiments is extremely satisfying, especially in cold weather. If you are not watching your carbs intake of is temporarily shelving your diet, you might wanna check out Only Mee and Boat Noodles for some noodle indulgence.
Only Mee Level 4 T2C-B19
Only Mee sells all sorts of local noodles with plenty of side dishes and snacks for you to indulge on.

Boat Noodle Level.4 T2C-B02
Boat noodles originates from the floating market if Ayuthaya in Thailand. On the rivers, locals will sell goods from their boats, including boat noodles. Noodles are usually served in large bowls, but it is inconvenient to do so on the boat, hence, smaller servings. And Boat Noodles maintained the traditional way of serving boat noodles; in small bite sized portion.
Here’s some of their highlights; Beef Pathumthani Rice Noodles, Beef Ayutthaya Rice Noodles, Beef Prosperity Yum, Chicken Pathumthani Rice Noodles, Chicken Ayuthaya Rice Noodles, Chicken Prosperity Yum, Fried Wanton Skin and Fried Chicken Skin. Their not to be missed drinks includes;
Cha Yen, Kaffe Yen, Cha Keow Yen and
Cha Manao Yen.
I would recommend you to bring some friends and order bowls and bowls of the noodles to indulge on. They are dangerously addictive. Plus, stacking up the empty bowls after you finished slurping the noodles up is strangely satisfying.

Babajia is a restaurant that serves homey Peranakan cuisine and it is open 24 hours daily. The restaurant is located just beside Richdad in SkyAvenue and is constantly flocked by both hungry diners and fans of Peranakan cuisine.

Love fried chicken dishes? Can’t live without them? Well, fret not. There are plenty of fast food joints that’s selling fried chicken in SkyAvenue. But here’s recommending two that tops the list; Nene Chicken and Texas Chicken.
Nene Chicken Level 4
Founded in South Korea in 1999, with the philosophy of providing a happy and positive lifestyle, NeNe Chicken very quickly became one of the nation’s favourite fried chicken brands.
The word “Ne” in Korean means “Yes”. Hence, “Nene Chicken” means “Yes Yes Chicken”.
The ever popular Korean fried chicken is usually fried to golden brown and coated with a variety of sauces, spicy or otherwise. At Nene Chicken, their chicken went through a batter-dip process where oil does not seep into the chicken meat, hence keeping the meat juicy and the batter crispy.

Texas Chicken is a fast-food chain that’s offering fried chicken, sandwiches and Southern-influenced sides.
Here’s some simple meal that’s popular among those who wants some quickie meal; 2 pcs chicken combo set with drinks, cheesy fries and dessert.

THE HEALTHY, NO NONSENSE STUFF
Let’s face it. When it comes to food, we tend to indulge and by end of the meal, we tend to feel guilty or worry about our expanding waistline. This is especially true for those who are watching their diet or those who are following strict order from their nutritionists. Here’s suggesting two outlet that will please both your conscience and your gym trainer; BMS Organics and Tian Ma Bird Nest.
BMS Organics Level 1 T2-19
BMS Organics is a restaurant that is serving all sorts of delicious vegetarian food. Those who detest vegetables in their means may have the perception that vegetarian food would be plainly green and uninteresting and the most you will get is a plate of stir fried veggies. But here’s where you are wrong.
While it is true that BMS Organics does not serve meat, but their meals are just equally good, if not better than their non vegetarian counterparts.
Here’s some of the must try dishes at BMS Organics; Grilled BMS’s Chef Burger, BMS’s Signature Nasi Lemak and BMS’s Soy Milk Curry Laksa Handmade Noodles.

Have sweet tooth? Must end your meals with a sweet note? Or simply in need of some sugar rush? SkyAvenue is also a dessert heaven. You can see shops selling desserts almost everywhere in SkyAvenue, but here’s listing some that’s worth mentioning; IIaoIIao and Madame Waffles.

Froyo are definitely a healthier choice of desserts as they are basically just frozen yogurts made into ice creams.

Madame Waffles Level 1 T2-40
As the name suggest, Madame Waffles is an expert in making deliciously tempting waffles.
Madame Waffles kioks keeps everything simple. What they are offering are mostly waffles that can be grab and go, but dining in would not be an issue as there’s plenty of table and chairs for you to have you waffles at.
Apart from serving sweet waffles topped with ice creams, they also have this; Durian Crepe. This is still fairly new and would require you to wait about 10 minutes for it to be prepared for you upon ordering, but it’s definitely worth the wait as the Durian Crepe is out of this world and could bring you to heaven and back. I wouldn’t recommend you to bring this to your hotel room and eat it, tho. As it is filled with fresh durian flesh, it is naturally pungent and the smell could be quite unpleasant in a closed room.
