Coffee Terrace – Genting Highlands, Malaysia


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!

Paranoma of the whole place… or partially…

Look at the char siew!!!

This section is closed cos open during dinner only

Yummy char siew and steamed chicken

Satay is good
You pick your veg and mushrooms and this chef will fry on the spot for you…

Portion: NA

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!

Location: Genting Highlands.

Golden Chopsticks Steamboat Restaurant @ Tan Quee Lan Street


When we talk about steamboat, many will talk about the influx of steamboat shops that is crowding out Liang Seah St/Beach Rd/Tan Quee Lan St area. So you will be wondering which one is good? I’ve checked out a few before, 2 of which always advertise on TV… found out that they are not as good as what they claimed to be… especially the one that we have to pay for the soup stock per pax and the other one which claims to have not MSG in their soups… all bullshit and many hidden costs.

So I was checking out this place called Golden Chopsticks along Tan Quee Lan St with some music mates… or rather those who actually bothered to meet up or reply an invitation sent weeks before. I called up for reservations and realised that the place on Sat is really crowded and hot. Literally hot too… be prepared to sweat like mad when you are there. But overall, the food was alright for the price they stated on their website (http://www.goldenchopsticks.com.sg) with no hidden costs or +++. Free flow desserts, ice-cream and drinks. Best of all, they have skewered BBQ stuff which you find in China free flow too! Check out their website to see the stuff they offer… don’t expect the lady in pink on the home page to be there… I didn’t see her there… ;P

Soup bases here are all pretty good. MSG confirm have but very minimal.
A La Carte Order of Freshly Cut Beef
A La Carte order of lamb slices... not so nice though...
BBQ Items
Scallops are frozen ones but quite alright
And many more selection...

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Most important is the soup base. It’s quite nice for all the different kinds of base.

Portion: Buffet

Price: $19.80 nett per pax on weekends

RTE: Maybe when I’m back in Singapore. Now in Shenzhen, there’s a super power ma la hot pot chain of restaurants… will feature it when I go visit them.

Stan, Nur and Dorcas bought me dinner recently which was meant for my farewell, but ended up I had to push back my flight to end of the month due to staffing problems.

So I suggested this place at Feast@East because I had hi-tea there before and the food selection was pretty decent. Check out the pics below:

This kebab has really good seasoning in the meat... and very very nice and succulent.
Cold starters selection! The salmon was very fresh!
Appetisers... dunno why the bak kua is there... leftovers from CNY? Hmmm...
Ice cream... the mango one is damn good... top right corner.
Chocolate fountain with loads of fruits for dipping!
Durian Puree and on the right is the durian cake... these 2 are favourites for many if you are a durian fan!
kueh! kueh! kueh! very nice selection of kueh, cakes, puddings, etc... the opera cake is damn good...
A segment for the young and old... melamine-free white rabbit milk candy and kiam sng tnee for the older folks... one whole row around the pillar
On the other side, we have the cooked food... This braised oxtail looks good but actually it's not... not tender enough... obviously the chef don't eat oxtail... hard like stone...
Local lksa, Penang laksa, and prawn soup... Remember to ask for small portion cos the chef will give you a large bowl!
I just love kitchen technology... imagine having this at home...
Oh yeah there's crayfish and pork ribs as well
Think next time I'll just hit the ice cream counter first...
Very nice ambience... great for catching up with friends...

Rating: 4.5/5 (Not everything is well done.)

Taste: I would say in general it’s very nice.

Portion: NA… buffet lah…

Price: $36+++ But if you have Accor Advantage Plus card, 4 pax free 1.

RTE: Not in the near future. Maybe for the hi-tea though.

Tips: Parking at the hotel is super expensive and no complimentary. Try to park at Roxy Square behind or around the hotel.




Your guys must be wondering like what? Cambodia?! Yeah it’s true, this Korean restaurant has been here for many years already and this Korean lady migrated to Siem Reap after seeing so many Koreans coming to the country. Hence she erected a small building beside this garden sanctuary restaurant where the lodging for her and her workers and also the kitchen is located. 

This is my 2nd time here and I didn’t feature it in the first place cos eatwithroy! was not up then. Since I’m back to do charity work, I might as well feature what’s good in Siem Reap! 🙂 Enjoy the pics below and click to enlarge!

There it is...

Washyour hands before your meals!
One of the volunteers in my group showing how it's being done... don't think she lasted 5 mins... haha
Check out the spread!!! 20 home made healthy dishes! Super organic!
Free flow... eat all you can...
Unpolished rice also free flow... had 3 bowls!!!
Authentic Korean stainless steel cutlery is used!
Whack until jialat jialat... ;P
The lady owner and me...

Rating: 4.5/5. Organic may not be for everyone. But it’s very good for us!

Taste: Very nice home cooked dishes… gives us an insight of what Koreans eat at home.

Portion: It’s free flow… what you think? ;P

Price: Get ready for this… free flow everything including ice tea. US$5 per person.

RTE: When I’m back in Siem Reap lah! Far leh.


Go figure out this one... or call for directions. 🙂
