If you’ve made a trip up to Resorts World Genting recently, you’ve probably stopped at SkyAvenue. And why wouldn’t you? The four storey mall boasts a head-spinning array of restaurants, cafes, and entertainment outlets (including the famous Burger & Lobster), and as if that’s not enough – SkyAvenue will also be connected to the future 20th Century FOX Theme Park upon its predicted completion in 2019! SkyAvenue exudes a modern, classy feel – an ambience which is mirrored in their new Medan Selera, located on the ground floor of the mall.
SkyAvenue’s Medan Selera offers a new take on the usual mall food court with tall industrial doors and windows, high ceilings and suspended lighting. The food court can seat a total of 270 people, so there’s no need to worry about finding a place to sit – at least until the theme park opens! Operating from 8.00am to 10.00pm daily, Medan Selera offers a variety of cuisines and options for both dine-in customers and those who are looking for a quick snack to-go.
Dine-in guests have five cuisines to choose from at Medan Selera; Rice & Spice, Noodles, Laksa, Western Asian and Crispy Chips.
These cuisines were chosen specifically to reflect the cultural melting pot that is Malaysia, featuring several regional favourites from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and the Middle East.
The Rice & Spice counter is where you’ll find all your Malaysian favourites like Nasi Lemak, Nasi Briyani and Nasi Kandar. Bonus tip: Go for the Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah, the Medan Selera’s top seller according to head chef, Chef Hapizi. The Noodles counter serves a selection of noodle-based dishes from all over South East Asia, like Char Kway Teow, Mee Bandung and Bakso.
One thing I loved about this Medan Selera is how seriously they take their Laksa. They have an entire counter dedicated to this specific noodle dish and its regional variations from across the Malaysian states, including Nyonya Laksa, Laksa Johor, Laksa Kelantan and Asam Laksa!
The Western Asian counter serves all your Middle-Eastern delights: Chicken and Lamb Shawarma, Grilled Chicken Shish Kebab as well as a selection of Arabic breads. For variety, there is the Crispy Chips variety which serves Western staples like Chicken Popcorn, Fish & Chips, and Calamari and Chips.
For customers looking to grab a snack on-the-go, the Salad & Dessert counter offers easy to grab items such as salads, fresh-cut fruits, curry puffs, potato samosas, bahulu and other Malaysian snacks. Medan Selera also offers a super affordable breakfast set for RM12, consisting of a hearty meal of their choice paired with a drink.
The new Medan Selera is also a halal alternative to SkyAvenue’s existing food court, Malaysian Food Street, which also showcases the best of Malaysian cuisines. So the next time you’re in Genting and are craving some Malaysian favourites, pop by SkyAvenue to grab a bite at their new Medan Selera.
While you’re there, you could grab the cable car to the new Genting Premium Outlet mall, or simply stick around at SkyAvenue for the SkySymphony show and witness the entire mall transform into an audio-visual marvel.
