    Lobby Cafe First World: 24 hour Cafe at Lobby of First World Hotel

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 12, 2014
    4 more images

    Genting Highlands is not a beehive of activity during the weekdays, but during the start of the weekends of friday and saturday, literally swarms of people try to check in at various hotels in Genting and First World Hotel, being the cheapest, is the most packed! hence it take sometimesd more than 1 hour to check in, and if you are tired (like us) from a long trip from langkawi to Kuala Lumpur and then to Genting plus lining up to get a room, you can eat really fast at their 24 always open lobby cafe, located just at the left side of the many check in counters.

    the lobby cafe serves assorted local and a sprinkling of international dishes like the famous hainanese chicken rice (white and roasted), stewed pork, assorted noodle dishes like laksa or mee goreng or beef noodle soup, some sandwhiches and pasta and a lot more.

    you just get a tray and point at the picture of the menu item you want at the food counter and wait for your food, then pay at the cashier and viola, get a table and eat!

    opens 24/7

    Favorite Dish: what else but the hainanese chicken rice meal (both roasted and white) and a plate with chicken rice costs RM 18 an order, Chinese Beef Noodle Soup at RM 16 an order and iced lemon tea and softdrinks at RM 5 an order.

  • Restaurant Hainan Chicken: Bad Service & uncooked food

    uncooked chicken (cant view properly from pic)
    2 more images

    Service is horrible, they did not greet, no smile on the face and treat customers poorly. They will scold the customers who requesting the food to be take-away (as they had waited for quite some time).

    My experience, is the uncooked quarter steam chicken. The whole plate is uncooked with the blood is still on, the chickens' oil is frozen (as if they where place in the fridge too long, even the oil will frozen) and the chicken was served cold. When asked for replacement, the waitress is not shock as it happen all the time. The replaced quarter chicken is nothing better, still there is blood and a little cold.

    When approached the manager, Jennifer, she cannot handle the thing professionally, not even a single sorry or effort to please back the customers. Finally, we had to request the quarter chicken to be cancel.

    Favorite Dish: nothing worth to be mention

    there are many snack stands in the genting highlands area especially in the vicinity of the Outdoor Theme Park and these Snack Stands sell an assortment of what else but quick and filling local and international snacks plus a lot of Junk Foods and various Drinks like fruit Juices or Carbonated Drinks. Off course the prices of the average snacks and drinks here will be more expensive than in kuala lumpur since the wole of genting is like an integrated them park. A Nice way to eat when you are on the go especially while walking at the outdoor theme park.

    Favorite Dish: depends on what food you buy like squid balls will be RM 3 an order, Malaysian Prawn Crackers will be RM 5 per order, Hotdog with waffles will be RM 8 per order and drinks like kiwi juice or Iced tea in a small plastic cup will cost you RM 5 per order, really expensive than in the kuala lumpur area.

    Only Mee Fresh Noodles: Is That Really Noodles?

    by Aidy_p Written Jun 1, 2008
    Never, Ever!
    1 more image

    This small eatery is pretty congested when comes to space and what's more, the eatery has a funny system where food and drinks are sold separately. Don't that remind you of Mattel toys? "Batteries are sold separately". This is a eatery for crying out loud.

    Never, ever step into this place. EVER! Travesty!

    Favorite Dish: I was buoyed by the fact that they old one of my favourite dish - Mee Rebus. But since it was a "fresh noodle" eatery, the noodle that they used were the same noodle that they used for speghetti, wanton noodle, and even, mee siam! The mee rebus really tasted like...better hold my words before I start spilling out vulgarities such as ***! Oops!

    How do they survive as a shop???

    McDonalds: Food On The Go

    by Aidy_p Written May 27, 2008

    I'd once quipped, while travelling in the remote areas of Australia, that you will know that there's a town with a substantial population whenever you see a McDonalds. It's so true in Genting as well.

    There are two outlets located at the basement of the First World Theme Park, and at the indoor theme park at Genting Hotel, they represent one of few outlets that stay open 24 hours a day.

    Favorite Dish: Guess you can order your usual fare of big macs and cheese burgers. For me? I just needed their golden crispy fries! Yum yum.

    Hou Mei Noodle House: Local Hawker Fare at Non Hawker Price

    The translation of this cantonese word "Hou Mei" means good taste, and that was what we received from the food we'd ordered. This nicely-renovated restaurant provides the customers with meals without great pomp. The customer service was pretty good, as the waitress were pretty diligent in showing you to your table and also, were on hand to take your orders rather quickly.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered ala carte. When in a local restaurant, please do try their local fare rather than western food, which were also on their menu.

    Their signature dish is Chicken Hor Fun (flat noodles) with soup. But I was not into soup that day and thus, ordered a bowl of shredded chicken noodle. My wife tried their curry noodle, while my little girl and my helper had steamed chicken rice and roasted chicken rice respectively. totally affordable (If you're comparing prices within Genting) at about RM12 per ala carte ordered.

    Coffee Terrace Restaurant: Teochew Porridge Buffet

    Teochew porridge buffet

    The Teochew porridge buffet at Coffee Terrace Restaurant (Genting Hotel) is not really authentic as it is missing quite a few popular dishes which contain pork (in order to make it halal). It is more worthwhile to taste the other cuisines. The dim sum over at Good Friends Restaurant (Highlands Hotel) is quite good though.

    A tid-bit shop at cable-car station, Genting

    There are a few big shops selling local tid-bits located at the cable-car station at the foot of Genting Highlands, just after you leave your cable-car when you are going down the mountain. There are many many varieties of tid bits at very cheap prices and you can try them out to check out which ones you like before buying. This place is a must when you are leaving Genting Highlands.

    There is a cosy cafe called Skyway Food Station at the cable-car station at the foot of Genting Highlands when you make your way up to the mountain. You can have your meals or a snack here if you are hungry, the food is mainly local such as noodles, rice etc but they have sandwiches, burgers etc as well. I find this place relaxing and the good is not bad, worth checking out when you are there.
