Imperial Rama Smile Oct 19, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Chinese | Hotel Dining | Seafood

 
Let's look East for this MIGF installment, checking out Chinese cuisine at Genting Highlands' Imperial Rama.

 
First up, Imperial Rama, where the four-course MIGF menu kicks off with a duo of lobster preparations, one chilled with ebiko and the other warmed up with asparagus and mushrooms. Both mighty fine, especially for crustacean enthusiasts.

 
Double-boiled guinea fowl soup, thick with traditional herbs to keep things flavorful.

 
Fish and fowl meet: baked sturgeon with duck roll. Playfully surprising, the sweet-glazed fish tastes like char siew, while the crispy roll is evocative of curry puffs.

 
Wrapping up with more Chinese decadence: cold bird's nest with pear and avocado puree. Sure, it's not the most adventurous of desserts, but it's really refreshing.

 
The MIGF menu here costs RM238++ for food. Quite a sum for a modest-looking four courses, but components like lobster and bird's nest are inescapably expensive.

 
An extra RM100++ provides three glasses of wine (prosecco, chablis and moscato). Thanks to Genting's Resorts World for inviting us for this complimentary tasting.

Bubbles & Bites Smile Oct 17, 2012

Categories : Western variety | Hotel Dining | Pizza/Pasta | Burgers / Sandwiches

 
Few casual eateries participate in the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival, which makes Bubbles & Bites on Genting Highlands feel like a breath of fresh, cool air.

 
The five-course MIGF menu at this Highlands Hotel outlet costs RM98++, with a first course of three light starters: a meaty oxtail-stuffed "empanada" puff ...

 
... as well as Scotch egg, hard-boiled and coated in breadcrumb-fried chicken sausage meat ...

 
... plus a peri-peri chicken wing. Sampling these starters is a culinary cross-border voyage, tasting recipes from Argentina, Britain and Portugal.

 
Second course: a heap of freshly picked salad leaves from Genting Highlands Resort's own garden, enlivened with anchovies, parmesan cheese and lemon. Fantastically crisp and zingy.

 
House-made spaghetti alla matriciana, the familiar Roman pasta favorite with a thick, tangy sauce of tomatoes, onions, smoked beef bacon and olives.

 
Customers will find their stomach space sorely tested by the fourth course, a whole whopping lamb shank, beautifully braised for eight hours and served with pumpkin-and-butternut couscous.

 
Tiramisu to finish this belly-busting lunch, made memorable with purple cotton candy.

Blood orange sorbet, paving the path for a creative conclusion.

 
Bittersweet chocolate, super-sumptuous with raspberries, coconut sago and pistachios.

 
More chocolate to wrap up a meal with a RM298++ price tag for paying customers.

 
Add RM100++ for four courses of excellent wine at regular intervals throughout.

 
Vino di Poeti (Gold) Prosecco, Bottega; Le Pitre, Primitivo del Salento, Villa Mottura, 2009 and Pedro Ximenez Solera, Alvear make up the highlights.

 
Service at The Olive was outstanding, from the moment we stepped inside till the time we left.

 
The Olive's MIGF menu includes a complimentary after-dinner drink: limoncello or choc grappa.

MIGF at The Olive: Part 1 Smile Oct 15, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

The 2012 Malaysian International Gourmet Festival is finally in full swing, hitting heady heights at The Olive Restaurant in Genting Highlands Resort.

 
Thanks to Resorts World for this invitation to check out what Chef Daniel Sheen has concocted for October. To begin: a fresh basket of squid ink, tomato and garlic bread.

 
The Olive supplies respite from the bustle of Genting's Maxims hotel, letting us focus on this flavorful spoonful of marinated salmon, honey spheres and fruit salsa.

 
When this plate of portobello mushroom carpaccio topped with black truffles, pecorino cheese, balsamic, herbs and grissini bread sticks landed on our table, we swooned helplessly over its intense aroma. Possibly our favorite course for The Olive's MIGF menu.

 
Celeriac veloute, warm and creamy, made savory with salted cod fish mousse.

 
Palate-cleansing pleasure: rhubarb-topped sorbet, tart but tantalizingly so.

 
Spatchcock with baby roma tomato confit, frisee and kiwi gazpacho. This meal's weakest link; essentially a pleasant but unremarkable chicken recipe.

 
But the final main course is a bona fide stunner: Wagyu short rib with smoked porcini risotto and parsnip puree. Comfort food for both carnivores and carb-lovers.
