Genting Highlands has a boat load of entertainment. There is something to do for everybody no matter what your idea of fun may be.

After a day of fun at the casino, arcade, and amusement park I hopped on over to the Genting Highlands Buffet to fill my empty stomach.

The buffet is Las Vegas style, featuring delights from many corners of the world.

God of the City Temple
Xiao Long Bao – A nice little dumpling composed of scrumptious soup and pork that will top your taste buds.
When many people think of Xiao Long Bao, they may think about the popular Taiwanese chain Ding Tai Fung but for an unsurpassable authentic, Nanxiang Mantou Dian (Nanxiang Bun Shop) leads the pack. With the long lines of eagerly awaiting customers, it is pretty hard to miss the restaurant should you walk by it.

Can it be a chestnut stand?

In a background of the usual hustling and bustling, barrels or plates of mini-meals ,each with its distinctive flavor make their way in specially designed heated Dim Sum karts across a field of customers (often times more hungry than wild-beasts in the present of oh so delicious foods.) Eating Dim Sum can be pretty hectic and often times just plain confusing given the list of seemingly endless options. In this post, I will try to make your dim sum experience an easier one to swallow by guiding you (with beautiful pictures of course) through many of the common dishes.

Durian
Have you ever eaten a fruit so pungent that eating it in public will bring about rallies of stares and frowns? I am talking about the king of fruit, durian. Mostly found in Southern Asian countries like Malaysia and Thailand, durian has a mace like appearance and a smell unlike anything else.

Pineapple Cake
In Singapore, I came across a bakery that definitely stood out in the crowd. Their buns have the best texture and their bread is amazing. Bite into a Bread Talk bun and you will be thinking to yourself “Am I eating bread? or cotton candy?” The texture of the buns is ohh so soft and ohh so good.

Claw Cake
The words “Chinese food” may conjure up images of har gou (shrimp dumplings) or orange chicken but that stuff only scratches the surface. With China being such a large country you’d expect the varieties of food to be immense. And you’d be correct in thinking so.
