It was one of the impromptu evenings when my god bro swinged the coffee bar to pick me up for dinner I thought. True enough dinner, but in JB! So he drove me home to pick up my passport and then we headed to JB via Tuas checkpoint.

I had high hopes for this All-Day-Breakfast cafe located at the basement of Genting Grand hotel, amidst the amusement park for kids. They moved from First World Indoor Park as the place is undergoing major construction. So I spotted this place while I was heading to First World one of the days I was there and told myself I must try before I leave for Singapore. So here I am.
Taste: Only the BBQ Chicken tasted good.
Portion: Less than average.
Ambience: Very noisy cos cafe in front of gaming machinese.
Been here only once but many many years ago before I started writing on food. So this recent trip I made it a point to try it again and take loads of pics. This buffet spread is really huge… I didn’t know where to begin, but once I started checking out all the food, I know I just had to start somewhere! Huge array of food and you really wish you had 2 stomachs! Some of the counters cook on the spot like Marche style, so as to ensure freshness. Love it!
Taste: Love the range, food is not bad, not the best I’ve tried but good enough in Genting.
Service: Very good for some, the others just wait for you to ask them to top up water and clear plates.
Ambience: Nice and chill.
Price: See pic.
RTE: Probably, trying not to eat so much nowadays!
Was in Genting recently and spotted this new flavour which for a durian fan is like a dream come true. So of course, I bought one cup to try. Not cheap, costed me RM$7.60 which equates to around S$3.00. Nevertheless, I still have to try it.
It is probably the worst McFlurry I’ve ever tasted. The durian sauce tasted so chemical, they should have used puree instead. At the same time, there was hardly any durian taste in it. The crunchy stuff is hard, totally don’t value add to the overall product. I’d rather they add cornflakes instead. Somehow I believe these decisions to launch such a product have not gone through any food consultancy, really bad call and a waste of my money. It was so bad, I took 2 scoops and left the cup there. Really Pui Chao Nua…
There are some facts that I have researched on lately that cleared my mind. All along I always thought the Canton-i (http://wp.me/pCcuC-4A) at ION Orchard in Singapore is related to Dragon-i in Malaysia… I was right, Canton-i is under the Dragon-i Restaurant Group of Companies. Whether the outlet in Singapore is a direct expansion or franchise, I’ve yet to find out. The other thing I’ve always thought that Canton-i was under the Paradise Group of Singapore, apparently not, just that they have Canton Paradise under their group which sounds similar.
Anyways this is my second time here at this outlet in KL after so many years… the first time was before I started writing on food some 5 years ago. So I was in town for work and then met up with a friend for dinner to check out their food once again. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Standard still as good as last time. If I had my other foodie friends with me, we could have ordered all their signature dishes.
Service: Excellent. However, you can see the manageress keep eyeing on the other service staff. I feel for the waitresses/waiters.
Ambience: Not as posh as I remember it to be. But still quite comfy for diners.
Price: All that for around RM$200. About S$80. In Singapore it will cost more than that.
RTE: I might but I still prefer the street food wherever I travel. 🙂
