I thought we’ve reached peak lobster and burger but when the famous UK chain Burger and Lobster made their way to Malaysia, I was all excited again and what better place to host this restaurant than the all new revamped Genting Highland’s Sky Avenue. With an exciting facelift, the resort is now looking fabulous with this particular space elegantly decked with interior and panel partitions, filled with neon red lights which exude a warm and contemporary ambiance.
Get your claws into their single page, nine items food menu and while this eatery represents remarkable swanky dining experience, it was nothing close to anything of a good value for money. The menu was simple; with either beef burger or lobster either steamed or grilled to offer, and all dishes are accompanied by chips and salad. Lobsters are plump and juicy, with inconsistent bounce but the price of RM 168 for your Chili lobster served with their signature brioche and no chips or salad, this one represents Malaysia well to be that exclusive variant available only in Malaysia outlet but I sure hope a fresher lobster in my claypot.
The rolls are better, this one is The Original (RM 138) with Japanese mayonnaise and because it’s served chilled in their signature brioche roll, it worked for me. The simplicity of the dish while absurd for what is a fairly average meal- cut neatly [ast the usual seafood meal pricing is what bothers me when it comes to recommending it to my readers.
If you’d like to make an evening of it, do the meal with cocktails and booze. Burgers looked fine with that substantial salad and chips. But then again, based on the lobster experience, food solely is the last thing that would offer satisfying experience in whole.
So what you are actually paying for is the dining experience of seafood at high altitudeof 6000ft in the hills with lobsters transported from Canada, an identical theme of Burgers and Lobsters in London and that Chili Lobster dish only available at the Resorts World Genting. Tourists would love everything about it, especially now that the Ringgit is weaker in value but for the locals to travel solely for this, I’d say you put on your lobster bib somewhere else.
