Wanhoi YAMCH’A @Sky Avenue, Genting

With the newly opened Sky Avenue at Genting, you’ll be surprised with the food varieties. One should not worry about feeling hungry. Instead you will be spoilt with choice. Price from moderate to expensive, from Asian to Western food.

On my recent visit to Genting, I settled my lunch at Wanhoi YAMCH’A. I google about this place and discovered something cute and fancy here. 🙂

 

Wanhoi YAMCH’A is a restaurant inspired by the renowned Oversea Group. Serving Malaysian Cantonese cuisine.

Besides that, dim sum is also available at Wanhoi YAMCH’A.

The interior is quite classy yet modern.

Part of the menu to show you the prices.

Crispy Pork in Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM38.80). It tasted like ‘Ku Lou Yuk’, but this has a crispy texture because the pork is thinly sliced then deep fried. Next, its coated with caramelized sweet and sour sauce. Its quite an additive and appetizing dish.

Stir Fried Kangkung Special Sauce (RM28.80) was a mouth watering dish. It may looks simple, but the flavors were good. With the hint of spiciness from the cili padi (bird-eye chili), and shrimp paste to enhance the flavors of this dish.

BBQ Pork Belly (28.80), was alright. Not the best I’ve eaten.

The above dishes were eaten with white rice (RM3.50/bowl)

 

We wanted more. Hence we would also love to try their dim sum which claimed to made fresh.

Steamed Pork Ribs (RM11.80)

Siew Mai (RM12.80) . The siew mai however was just average, not memorable.

BBQ Pork Bun in Zhu Zai Shape (RM14.80). Consist of 2 adorable piggy steamed buns served hot in basket.

Pao dough has good consistency while the BBQ Pork filling was tasty. Glad that the pao dough wasn’t too thick.

Custard Pau (RM14.80)

“Wuek…I spit custard..” 😀 😀 Isn’t this pau looking cute? It is a steamed bun which is served hot. This yellow looking creature (pau) is filled with runny salted egg custard which literally ooze out once you take a bite. Very nice I felt.

A lovely pair of bird in a cage!! Salted Egg Yolk Lotus Paste Filling (RM15.80)

This dish really caught my attention.

The pastry is a buttery kind like what we had for Shanghai Mooncake. Its filled with smooth lotus paste.

Verdict : Food prices are on high side, food portion also quite small. But luckily the overall food taste was acceptable and quite satisfying.

Dinner @Palsaik Korean BBQ, SkyAvenue Genting

When Palsaik Korean BBQ newly arrived in Malaysia, I heard about it through social media. I got attracted when friends shared about the 8 flavors of pork on a long tray. In Korean Palsaik [pa:sek] means ‘eight colours’.

Palsak Korean BBQ is now available at Mon’t Kiara (1st outlet), Scott Garden, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Kota Damansara & Kepong.

Apparently, Palsaik is a popular Korean BBQ in Korea. When I was at Genting’s SkyAvenue, I didn’t want to miss a chance to dine here with my family.

Located at Lot No. T2C-08 & T3-08, SkyAvenue,Genting.

Seats are available at 2 floors.

It was on one Saturday night. Hence the crowd at 8+pm. We were put under the waiting list by jotting our name,number of pax and contact number. I wasn’t sure if they accept any reservation, but regretted that I didn’t try doing it.

Our waiting time was at least 30 minutes. But the outlet manager was very attentive and friendly to accommodate every waiting customers.

As shown on the wall, the signature 8 flavors pork belly.

Thus I ordered the 8 color set which is ideal for sharing. On menu stated, sufficient for 3-4 person. We did add on some other dishes as well. 8 Color Set – RM158

At Palsaik, the eight flavors are ginseng, wine, garlic, herb, curry, miso paste and hot pepper . All the color is naturally-derived, making the pork served at Palsaik 100% natural and free from coloring and any synthetic flavor additives.

The highlight of the night! Palsaik pork belly seasoned with 8 different special ingredient (75g per piece flavors)

The 8 colors set comes with a pot of Clear Clam Soup which is non-spicy. There were choice of 3. From non-spicy to mild then spicy soup. We added a portion of Ramen Noodle (RM8). Do note that the soup can’t be refill.

Complimented with some lefty vege (types of lettuce to wrap the meat). But surprisingly no banchan is serve here.

Leave the job to the professional. The trained staff will do the meat grilling for you.

As you can see, on the grilling pan its filled with kimchi + bean sprout (refillable), mushroom and enoki mushroom before the grilling begin.

Grilling begin from original, non-flavored pork belly, graduating from the lighter to the strongest flavor.

 

Egg Custard – RM14

Its a Korean version of steamed egg. The steamed egg was steaming hot and has a very nice fluffy texture. Suitable for children too.

Volcano Kimchi Fried Rice – RM28

Kimchi Fried Rice on bed of omelet was not bad. But its not volcanic at all. (not spicy).

Pork belly was grilled to perfection. Meat was tender and succulent. However the flavors were not really contrast. I couldn’t really taste much difference on each flavor. Perhaps you should try eating the meat on its own without any sauce and sides to taste its originality. I felt the food at Palsaik are not too salty and its quite mild. Nevertheless we enjoyed our dinner at Palsaik, and I was busy walloping the food. LOL! 😀
