Eat @ B5 – Genting Highlands, Malaysia


Yeah I’m on a roll writing Genting food ‘cos I really need to clear all the food that I reckon worthy (or not!) in my backlogs. This foodcourt place has been there for the longest time, originally opened for the bus and taxi drivers but now more people are actually eating there now. Recently renovated, this foodcourt now is a lot nicer than what it was previously. Along with the new renovation, the price of the food also escalated a lot. Nevertheless it’s prolly one of the cheapest places to eat when you’re in Genting Highlands. Check out the reviews below:

Chee Cheong Fun RM$9 - My mum's all time favorite. Malaysian's chee cheong fun comes with yong tau foo on top, which makes it more tasty, Prices climbed a lot since.

Kedai Kopi Sin Yoon Loong @ Ipoh, Malaysia


Yes this is a coffee shop but not just the ordinary coffeeshop. This is the birth place of the famous Ipoh White Coffee located at the Old Town of Ipoh. The white coffee was started by this coffeeshop much earlier than the famous Old Town White Coffee many of you know. The latter is definitely more business minded as compared to Sin Yoon Loong, going into cafe franchising, instant coffee packs, and distribution to almost the whole of Asia. This coffeeshop however, insist on using manual frying of the coffee beans instead of automation and after tasting the coffee, I understand why they did not go into business expansions. The taste of the coffee I had that day, erased all other impressions of white coffee I had ever tasted. Such taste cannot be replicated in the form of 3-in-1 instant coffee packs. No way.

Coffeeshop business is always good...
The famous white coffee... The taste and aroma are very strong. The best thing is, even when I ordered the iced version, the taste doesn't differ from the hot one.
Yong Tau Foo noodle shop within the coffeeshop... you can actually order from the coffeeshop next door as well for food... not for drink though. 🙂
Quite good
What I chose for ingredients
Cheong Fun in 2 versions... the tube type and the flat sheets type.
Flat sheets type
Tube type with turnip and veg fillings inside... both types very nice... due to the water they use again... and the sauce is awesome too! RM$2.50
7.30am the roast pork stall opens... freshly roasted pork... can't resist!
Still warm when served. RM$3
Nice and sweet. RM$3.

Rating: 5/5. For both the food stalls inside as well as the coffee.

Taste: Do I need to say more?

Portion: Average

Price: Coffee is around RM$1.30 if I can remember clearly.

RTE: YES!!! Best for breakfasts!!!

Location: Old town… just behind their Little India. Again, every cab driver knows where this is.
