Home to over 1.6 billion
people, East Asia is a vast region with a very long history and very deep
culture. The inspiration for a multitude of global trends, one of the most
distinctive features of the sub-continent is its cuisine – recipes that date
back centuries that have flowered from common origins to a vast and varied
treasure trove. Resorts World Genting pays tribute to this grand culinary
history by featuring highlights of region through three unique restaurants.
Representing the Hallyu
Korean Wave is YG Republique in SkyAvenue. Just as K-Pop has taken over the
music world, Korean cuisine has proliferated around the globe, bringing kimchi
and bulgogi into the common food lexicon. Housing premium Korean BBQ restaurant
Samgeori Butchers, the sweet and smokey smell of grilled meats wafts around a
space designed to look like a traditional and nostalgic Korean butchery. The
food, however, is anything but dated, featuring premium cuts of pork cured in
Cypress Pine and high-quality aged beef that hit the table grill with a satisfying
sizzle. Traditional condiments – including the ubiquitous pickles kimchi
(cabbage), oiji (cucumber) and danmuji (radish) – accompany the hearty
proteins, providing a spicy and sweet-salty kick to the tender, umami flavour
of the meat.
South of the Korean
Peninsula is the archipelago of Japan, an economic and cultural powerhouse that
has become one of the best-loved cuisines in the world. The Japanese recipe
book is immense, covering dishes from delicate sushi to fusion recipes like
karaage. One of the most beloved of these is ramen – a basic noodle-and-broth
dish that is given amazing variety through regional styles and seasonal
ingredients. At Resorts World Genting, Taiko Ramen in First World Plaza is
where guests can sample the distinctive flavours of ramen from Japan’s
different regions. From the milky pork bone Kyushu broth to the thinner yet
rich Tokyo-style broth, from the spicy and creamy Hokkaido broth to the newer
no-broth mazemen style, Taiko Ramen guarantees a perfect bowl of ramen goodness
every time. And don’t be afraid to slurp; in Japan, this is expected and is a
sign of the quality of the noodles and broth.
And then there is China.
With a culinary dictionary that dates back several millennia, the Chinese cookbook
covers refined dishes previously served only to royalty, street fare meant for
entire families and villages to enjoy and everything in between. It is
difficult to cover the full scope of Chinese cuisine in one restaurant, but
Steam Era in First World Plaza succeeds in providing a great representation.
Steam Era’s interpretation of the classic Chinese hot pot utilities the power of
steam, a cooking method that retains an ingredient’s natural essence. Featuring
only the freshest seafood, a meal at Steam Era is a joyous celebration of food.
Beyond the hot pot, Steam Era’s menu also covers the wide geographical span and
techniques of the Middle Kingdom, including dishes from all four corners of the
country including Sichuan Spicy Chicken, Teochew Claypot Porridge, Hong Kong
Style Beef Brisket Pot, and Lanzhou Beef Noodles.
At Resorts World Genting, there
are two things that the resort takes pride on when it comes to food – quality
and variety. The world is a big and bountiful place, and the resort aims to
bring this amazing culinary diversity under one encompassing Genting roof. Not
just cuisines of different countries, but different cuisines within countries. The
depth of Chinese, Japanese and Korean cuisines is huge, and everyone put in
extra effort to capture the essence and spirit of this food history in the
establishments that are at the resort. The person who is tired of eating, they
say, is tired of life. Well, at Resorts World Genting, you’ll never get tired
because there’s so many different foods to explore in one single place.
