First World Cafe @ Genting Highlands, Malaysia

As I am in Genting Highlands today, I am writing about my food experience in First World Cafe that is located in First World Hotel. This cafe is at the Ground Floor, just along the way heading to the towers where the lifts are.

At First World Cafe
Here it is very much self service. You would need to go to the beginning of the counters and then follow the que. As you pass the counters, you would then need to place your orders for food, pick up your drinks and then come to the cashier to pay for the meal. Once the meal is ready, you would need to walk up again to the counter and pick up your own meal. If you had ordered ten dishes, then you would need to do it ten times. Well, what can I say. Food in Genting Highlands is very expensive though one would be spoilt for choices. This cafe is also expensive but it is still the place where you can get simple meals and the cheapest price in Genting Highlands.

Roti Canai @ RM 7.00
Well this is one of the dishes that we ordered here. Food taste was pretty good I would say as Genting has one of the best chefs around, both in their specialty restaurants as well as simple cafes like this. But the price, is a little high. However, when still compared to other outlets, both private stalls and restaurants, this is still a much better option for a quick snack.

Me and my Chikuteh @ RM 21.00
I on the contrary wanted to have something heavy. What attracted me initially was the Muckuteh which is a Mutton version in Bah Kut Teh broth. As this is a Halal restaurant, they do not have pork and so only Mutton and Chicken was available. However, it was sold out for the day and hence I had to settle for the Chickuteh. Price, was surely expensive at RM 21.00 and taste wise, was average. It was more like the Kuala Lumpur style of broth which was clear soup but it had good ingredients inside which include the mushrooms, tofu and very lean chicken meat. Volume was also great.

My Brother with a Bowl of Hor Fun @ RM 18.00
Not satisfied with the earlier Roti Canai, my brother ordered a bowl of Hor Fun. As you can see the portion size is huge but it is mostly the soup. Taste wise was just average and was not worth the price paid. I did taste it too. The Chikuteh was surely a better buy.

One thing good about this cafe is that it is open 24 hours a day and food is available all day long. They do have a reasonable variety for customers and it is not too bad on the whole. Another advantage here is that you could use your Genting Points to redeem food items too. I did that for the earlier Roti Canai.
