This is one of those days where I reminisce on things I want to do the most and surprise, surprise! It’s eating.
One of the places I’m dying to go back to right now is the Coffee Terrace at Genting Highlands. Through the name “Coffee Terrace”, one might think it’s a simple coffee place located on a terrace. But what it has is a lot more than that. A whole lot more than just that.
Coffee Terrace at Genting Highlands is a buffet place that’s really worth every penny because the dishes they have doesn’t just cater to one place. They come from all over Asia.
Buffets are considered to be the best when you know there are a lot of dishes to choose from. Dishes that are not only appetizing but could also give you your money’s worth. Not trying to sound like a pig here but trust me when I say that when you’re there, you’ll most likely want to spend your whole day just eating.
Coffee Terrace includes a Japanese, Chinese, Western, Western Asia, and Nyonya* style buffet and the choices are puhhhlenty! If I just didn’t have any plans of riding rollercoasters and other amusement park rides at the theme park in Genting right after, I would’ve tasted everything. EVERYTHING!
I won’t really be going into detail on all the food found at Coffee Terrace but everything you expect it to have are there. For instance, on the Japanese station, there’s sushi, sashimi (served only during night time though), tempura and takoyaki. For Chinese: dumplings! Western: steak, salmon and buttered vegetables. Western Asia: "East meets West" dishes and for Nyonya: laksa and curry. There are more than just the ones I mentioned but I really have no idea what some of them are called. (My bias for Japanese food clearly showed here, didn’t it? XD)
Local favorites are also available as well as dessert corners that include ice cream, ice kacang, cakes, pastries, pudding, mousses and fruits.
Thinking about all of these again just makes me want to go back and taste all the things I’ve missed. And when I do come back, this time, I’ll make sure I don’t have any plans of going on amusement park rides right after.
*Nyonya – a fusion of Malaysian and Chinese cuisine
