Restoran Genting Palace @Genting Grand, Resorts World Genting

Visitors to Genting Highlands seeking a Chinese New Year getaway may want to complete their festive celebration at Restoran Genting Palace. This grand Chinese restaurant offers their exclusive CNY Menu from 27 January 2017 to 12 February 2017. Prices start from RM568.00 nett for a minimum of 4 paxs. The location maybe a little obscure but once you follow the signboard that leads you to Genting Grand Hotel, the restaurant would be easily located.
At first glance, the Chinese New Year menu at Genting Palace offers the usual-run-of-the-meal fare but once the dishes are served, it is easy to see, why and how their food are a notch and more above other contemporary restaurant's.
This been the year of the Rooster, the Prosperous Japanese Tuna Yee Sang is appropriately shaped like the bird. The moment it was presented, everybody ooh-ed and aah-ed over the beautiful presentation. It also impresses with the freshness and generosity of the tuna portion. Tossed to perfection with the colorful greens and reds of the vegetable signify prosperity, this salad is the perfect start to the rest of the sumptuous banquet. Note: Yee Sang is already available from 14 January 2017 - 11 February 2017
Double-boiled Dried Seafood and Abalone Treasure Pottage. Each mini pot reveals a large piece of abalone and a generous amount of tender succulent sea cucumbers, scallops and chicken meat enough to satisfy the most hearty eater. The clear beautiful broth set well on my tongue and did not leave a cloying after-taste. 
Marinated Royal Mountain Chicken in Fine Soy Sauce. I am not a fan of chicken brest meat and their only so many pieces of drumsticks and wings to go around the table. However much to my surprise, even the less favored parts were not the dreaded dried and tasteless meat. The flesh was tender, juicy and delicious. The taste of the soy sauce permeates to the skin onto the flesh, making this a wonderful savory dish.
Stewed Sea Cucumber with Goose Feet. Thick chunky sea cucumber open up to contain scallops, roast porks, mushrooms, mini sweet corns and carrot, topped by a generous sprinkling of pork floss.  Lined up at the both sides are goose feet and the Hong Kong Pak Choy. The sea cucumber was springy and tender, evident of the good pre-cooking process. While the goose feet was not very well received at first by everyone at the table, the few who liked to eat fowls' feet assured us that it was gelatinous and smooth, a great source of collagen for the skin.


Steamed River Marble Goby with Crispy Ginger. One dig into the tender yet firm fresh of the Goby fish with the chopsticks is instant confirmation of its freshness, something that we all know by the past experience is not guarantee in every restaurants. The contrasting combination of crispy slivers of ginger and fresh coriander go well with every melting-moment morsel of fish.
Pan-fried Marmite Prawns. Beautifully embellished with radish and carrot decorations, the prawns were a visual feast for the eyes. 


Golden Sweet Corn Fried Rice with Waxed Meat. 3 different types of waxed meat from various parts of a pig together with a waxed duck leg are steamed and cooked in a bed of glutinous rice. The result is a heavenly aromatic combination when the softened and rather salty meat is stirred in and mixed with the fragrant rice. Even though I was already very full by then, I could not resist taking as much as I could.


Lotus Seed and Lily Bulb with Tai Hai Nam. Tai Hai Nam is in Cantonese, in Mandarin would be known as Pang Da Hai. For easy understanding in English, it is called Malva Nut or Boat-Fruited Sterculia Seed. It is a seed but it will magically swells into a spongy-like when being treated with water. The main functions are to clear heat from the lungs to resolve phlegm and to relieves sore throat. After all the greasy, oily and fatty dishes, you would really want a bowl of this dessert to soothe your throat and calming your taste bud. Not too sweet and not too fancy. Just nicely done.


Pineapple Tarts - Once your taste bud was cleared, the best taste to remain on your taste bud and memories before you leave will be this seductive golden pineapple tarts. The restaurant picked a perfect choice of dessert to make us remember the pineapple tarts as the taste sits well in our taste bud. The crust is soft with rich of buttery taste but that's not the best part. The pineapple gooey is sweet but you would know it is definitely not an artificial sweetness made from sugar. It is the sweetness from the pineapple fruit itself. So sweet enough to make you smile before you leave the table. Mark my word, you would definitely ask a waiter/waitress if you could buy a box of pineapple tarts. I can save your trouble from asking, it is available for sale but only for a limited time only which is from 2 January 2017 - 11 February 2017. It is reasonably priced at RM28.00 nett (12 pieces) and RM39.00 nett (20 pieces)

By the way, Restoran Genting Palace does serve a wide range of excellent Pu Er Tea. My wife is from Yunnan, Pu Er city who owns a field of tea trees to produce her own Pu Er tea. She acknowledged that the tea served in this restaurant is a top-notch quality Pu Er Tea. If you are a big fan of Pu Er, do drop by to have a quiet and peaceful moment with their tea and accompany with their delicious pineapple tarts. I can assure you this would be a heavenly experience that you wouldn't want to miss.
