Here’s a recount of the delicious calorie busting tale of the newest restaurants and eateries in Sky Avenue lifestyle mall.
Dine like a Rockstar!
Seriously, there’s no other description that I could think off. Paul and I felt like Rockstar throughout our trip. When it comes to hospitality, Resorts World Genting scores top points. Speaking of Rockstar, Smartdory met celebrity blogger Dato Kee Hua Chee who is on the hunt for the best dishes.
This is a toughie, naming the top restaurant. All the outlets did a great job in terms of hospitality and prompt service. Smartdory records a big thank you to all the restaurants for rolling out treats galore.
Paul and I voted the following based on our favorites (that being pork & ribs), some all-time favorites and crowd favorites. These restaurants are great for a family meal or hang out with friends. Reserve a table for the best dining in Genting Highlands.
DÔME Café Malaysia
For most of us who grow up with DÔME, this cafe needs no introduction. DÔME is best known for their moist carrot cake washed down with its iconic cuppa with the complimentary biscotti. The café has perfected the art of lazy afternoon snacking before the surge of Instagramable cafes and other one hit wonders.
For fans and loyal customers, DOME is the choice setting for a relaxed meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The selection of sandwiches and decadent drinks are also a welcomed sight.
Well known for their signature share platters of pork ribs slow-cooked in hickory wood, Morganfield’s American Midwest menu of burgers, steaks, club sandwiches is a meat lovers’ paradise. Morganfield’s brings the world of American soul food and Blues music together. This is where meaty servings are magnified with charred meats or creamy sauces and that distinct smoky wood flavor.
Southern hospitality is taken a notch higher with this restaurant serving finger-licking delights like country fried sirloin, tequila-spiked chicken. For Pescetarians there are seafood dishes like pan-fried sea bass and, tequila-spiked prawns to chow down.
Best for families, Kids can enjoy the activity sheets which include coloring and origami instructions, or they can play with balloons supplied by the restaurant. A big Plus point to note, kids eat for free during the weekends and on public holidays, with every paying adult.

DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe
This fantasy-themed Asian Western café has hordes of comic geeks drool over the American menu of sandwiches, burgers, pasta, and pizzas. All this is washed down with sodas, ice blends, shakes, coffee or tea. The superhero theme can be a thrill for fans to overlook the normal food and drinks embossed with a superhero logo.
The deco of the restaurant has tables and chairs are emblazoned with the Batman logo. Comic book posters adorn the wall. There is superhero artwork at the counter which makes this café Instagram worthy of a selfie or two.
After your superhero meal, make your way to the DC Comics Super Heroes retail outlet, so you can shop for shirts and other cute collectibles.
With Malaysian traveling to Vietnam, the offering of simple, rich comforting food is popular. Royale Vietnam brings the flavors and taste of Vietnamese cooking that is highlighted by time and effort spent on food arrangement. Most of the foods served are nothing short of spectacular with intricate vegetable carvings.
If you’re a fan of the much-loved pho, the flavorful broths made with fresh ingredients and beef slices takes center stage. Don’t forget to order Bahn mi, other favorites of authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
Thai Boat Noodles is a dish of flat rice noodles in a meat broth originally served in small portions on the boats that ply Bangkok’s waterways. The Mini-Size Noodles are to prevent customers being scalded by the piping hot soup. The flavorful meat broth thickened with pork blood.
Boat noodles are served dry or in soup, with your choice of rice noodle or vermicelli. There is a generous topping of pork slices, meatballs, crunchy deep-fried lard, and offal. The noodles are tossed in gravy or swimming in a small bowl of broth.
Mini size boat noodle that is just about 2 mouthfuls. The noodles are delicious, so you can have as many or as few bowls as you want to. We also tried the soft steam white bread cubes with sweet kaya and fried chicken wings. The famous Thai ice tea is a great thirst quencher.
24 hours Dining Outlets
Richdad is an All-Day-Breakfast cafe with great breakfast and deli foods from basic soft boiled eggs, butter kaya toast and an aromatic cuppa kopi O to a scrumptious range of sandwiches, pastries, and plates of pasta. Their repertoire is from basic breakfast staples Two Half Boiled Egg + Toast Bread + Coffee/Tea RM15 to Baby Lobster Nasi Lemak RM30
For a true blue Penang born Peranakan, it is near impossible to get that authentic taste of Nyonya food that I am accustomed to. Babajia on Level 1 of Sky Avenue serves a decent meal of contemporary Baba-Nyonya cuisine.
We tried Roti Jala with Chicken Curry RM19 | Char Kway Teow RM21 | Stir-Fried Spinach RM20
Only Mee & JR Curry
If you feel peckish in the middle of the night and crave for something spicy and carb laden, head to Only Mee & JR Curry. Both outlets Open Daily for 24 Hours/week.
We wanted to try Only Mee’s varieties of noodles but don’t want to overindulge, so we chose the Little Bowl Noodles. There are 4 types of local noodle dish in tiny bowls with small serving’s portions.
There’s decent Assam Laksa, Curry Laksa, Mee Udang and Green Curry Laksa to slurp up in cold weather. The bowl of noodles generously filled with condiments is surprisingly satisfying albeit the Green Curry Laksa was a tad salty for me.
Assam Laksa Penang RM16 | Curry Laksa Ipoh RM16 | Prawn Mee Penang RM16 | Green Curry Mee Thai RM16
