Imperial Rama, Thai-Chinese Cuisine Restaurant @ Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) in Maxims Hotel, Genting Highlands

Last weekend, I was invited to visit the Resorts World Genting. I had the opportunity to dine an unique and galactic culinary food, prepared by Chef Andy Seng from Imperial Rama Restaurant. Imperial Rama is located at the level 2, Maxims Hotel, and is currently participating in Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) 2015 with the theme "Galactic Chefs! 2015: A Food Odyssey".

I am happy to get my great dining experience with my mom, Secret-Spices . I enjoyed tasting the very premium food in Imperial Rama very much. Imperial Rama took part in the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) 2015. They make sure that every diner enjoy to discover and bring the journey of taste of cooking by showcasing the passion of their culture food.

I felt that Chef Andy Seng is multi talented and had incredible skills to do many jobs. He did a great job of producing a fantastic beautiful set of menu, from appetiser, soup, entree, main course, and lastly dessert. Make you curious about his Cantonese cuisine? You can see my photos below;

First, Appetiser - Crystal Prawn (Joh. Jos Prum Kabinett Riesling 2012)
First it make me amazed, to see avocado roll with tuna at one side. I really love this avocado tuna, it is so yummy. I see a piece of seaweed? No, it is actually made from glutinous flour and charcoal. There is a huge tiger prawn which is bigger than normal ones. It is soo big white and succulent that I didn't realise that it is prawn. The salmon caviar (Ikura) is placed on topped gives it an added color and flavor so well. It is beautiful dish and the freshness the minute you bite into it.  

Soup - Double-boiled 6 Head Abalone with Dried Maca & Chicken Soup
This is praised by all my friends there! It is the most favourite soup by everyone, including me and my mom! First time, I heard about dried maca, a medicinal herb are imported in from Peru, expensive and we were told it is very nourishing for ladies.

The chef used the free-range chicken to further enchanced the taste of the soup. It is important to stew soup for 3 hours first individually, then Abalone from South Africa was added and steamed for 2 hours. I was very happy to eat a very premium Abalone because it limited, exclusive in Imperial Rama only. This soup gives a very strong aroma of herb, and it sets my mouth salivating and I felt the desire to go eat again by the thought of it now.

Next, Entree - Baked Golden Pomfret with Chef Sauce (Domaine A. et P. de Villaine Bourgogne La Digoine 2011)
The chef used Golden Pomfret (Kam Cheong Yu) fish that is baked in the oven. Later, they put the chef's BBQ sauce on the fish, so I felt this sauce is like sweet & sour. There is also vegetables, tomatoes and calamansi juices. I really love the sweet fish, so it is very delicious.

Main Course - Stuff Sea Cucumber with Noodle Cheese Sauce.
I felt that the stuff sea cucumber mix with meat and prawn is just the correct bite size. The sea cucumber is specially chosen from the very best, imported from Dalian, China. Then there is a long process of washing, soaking, stuffing with meat and prawn, cooking to the right temperature to make it so mouth watering and tasty.

And served with the noodles "Song Fa Mien" from Taiwan, which is cooked with parmesan cheese. That is why I can feel cheese sauce in my mouth the minute I put the noodles in my mouth.

This noodles must be blanched slowly in low heat so that the side will not become soft too fast. There is also green vegetables. It is healthy dish.

Finally, Dessert - Bird's Nest with Mango Puree & Snow Mango Mochi

I always like to eat my favourite, Japanese mochi. This is a new type of mochi, very new dessert, especially with bird's nest on the top of mango juice drink.

My sisters and I really love the bird's nest so much. I like the sweet mochi with fresh cream and mango inside, so yummy! Great.

The Imperial Rama Festival Menu is available for this month, until 25 October 2015 only. The Selling priced at RM338 nett (without wine pairing) and RM468 nett (with wine pairing). Popular favourite menus may continue to be on the restaurant's menu.

The food looks more Chinese than Thai when none is spicy. I just had Thai food a few days ago and I can still imagine its sting. :)

Looks nice but whenever I go up to Genting, it's usually past midnight and we are more busy trying to get up and down Genting than to really go into any of the hotels/malls to try anything.
