A little bit of Malaysia in my life
After having had a meal at the Malaysia Boleh! food court at Jurong Point, I just had to try and compare it to the Malaysian Food Street @ RWS.
While the food court at Malaysian Food Street was visibly larger, with a wider variety of food stalls selling mouth-watering delicacies, the waiting time was nearly unbearable. After spending a long and tiresome (but extremely enjoyable) time at Resorts World Sentosa, I was looking forward to chomping down on a scrumptious plate of Malaysian kueh teow and 30 sticks of satay. The sheer number of people there was enough to drive me crazy as it took us almost half an hour to find seats. On top of that, the queues were not surprisingly lengthy, and the wait time for a few of the stalls did not help to curb my hunger.
Despite the long time taken to get the food on my table, I have to admit that the dishes tasted like heaven, like most Malaysian food. Worth the wait? If you're hungry, yes. If you're famished? You might want to consider an alternative.
Good price after a long day of over spending!
Those of us who can't really afford the super expensive restaurants that is present in RWS, this food court is the only option that is left to feed the hungry tummy. So after a whole day at RWS being tossed about and hanging upside down in crazy rides, we entered the food court ready and ravenous!
We had to wait a while to get a place as it was dinner time and obviously crowded. After we have settled, I opt in for a plate of chicken rice. The food serving was reasonably fast considering the crowd. As for my chicken rice, it was good if not spectacular. I did had way better chicken rice in my home's downstairs coffee shop. The chicken was not as moist and soft as it is supposed to be but the rice was perfect. The drink however, my teh ice, had way too much ice that after 3 sips all I had left was tons of ice and no teh.
Though the food is nothing compared to what I will usually have in Malaysia, it was still a good experience. It's affordable and provided a fine enough eating experience after our long exciting day.
Anti-Climax but Good for the Wallet (Purse).....
When the media mentioned about the Malaysian Food Street being set up at RWS.... images of Penang's Gurney Drive, char kway teow, etc...comes to mind. I must say I was eager to visit the eatery with "food street decor" during a recent to RWS. But the euphoria somewhat evaporated quite soon upon entering the venue.... can't explain why...it's a "feel" kind of thing.
One thing comes to mind...The foodcourt seems somewhat like the Food Trail at S'pore Flyer..but with aircon (thumbs up!) and the cutlery provided are proper reusable type (Gaia friendly !) ...not the disposable foam & plastic type.
The food court showcases famed signature food like Penang Ah Long Lor Bak (Ah Long ??!), The Lim Brothers Char Kway Teow, Ah Mei Hokkien Prawn Mee and KL's Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice, etc. The list is by no mean exhaustive....just good enough... there's only so much you eat at a given time.
So are the offerings any good? I must say that it's passable and reasonably good. My chicken rice with rice balls were nothing to rave about (give me Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice or Boon Tong Kee anytime) ...the Char Kway Teow was...Mmmm...fine....and the Beef Redang Kampung Nasi Lemak.... good to fill the stomach... nothing that takes my breathe away (that's would be a medical nightmare !)
So would I recommend to anyone or return? Definitely Yes,! for a budget-friendly quick meal before exploring the rest of the theme park. Just don't expect the skies....
Cheapest food source in RWS
The best thing about this place is that it offers the largest variety of food as well as the cheapest food that you can find the RWS, not to mention, under one roof. Additionally, if you are a member, you can actually pay for your meals using the points system inherent in the card. Other than that, evident effort in the décor, like a theme park. Sadly, for the positives, that’s about it.
The food really cannot make it, albeit at food court price. Hated the dark sauce hokkien mee that some has raved about. To me, it is simply disgustingly sweet. The claypot rice is decent in terms of its taste, but the reverse is true for its portion as well as waiting time. Then there’s this chicken rice served with rice balls and funny yellow skinned chicken. Looked interesting at first, however, tasted bland and I personally hate gimmicks with no substance, like the rice balls. And till now, I have not ceased to wonder why the chickens look so yellow. The Ngor Hiang is decently priced, considering most Ngor Hiang stalls charge exorbitant prices for them. However, nothing spectacular, with the prawn crackers tasting a bit “lao hong”. Lastly, the Penang Char Kway teow, though far from the real thing, was decently priced and tasted ok as well. Would I return? Yes, but only for the cheap food.
I finally set foot on this place after a long day of fun in USS. Finding this place is easy and upon seeing this place, I was excited as I can finally have a taste of Malaysian food in foreign country.
The concept of this place is self service. After taking taking my number, I was called within minutes and placed my order. Decided to have a plate of fried koay teow as I'm an addict. But my heart fell when I ate mine. The meal looks okay but it's not up to my par. I have eaten Penang char koay teow like, forever and this meal doesn't even come close to it. All the necessary ingredients are there but it's lacking something. The fragrant and burnt taste is missing, leaving up the meal to be just an ordinary fried koay teow.
For Singapore rates, I can say the price of the food in this place is very much affordable. But I will give it a miss next time as it's really not worth it.
Worth a try!
One of my good friends has been raving about their hokkien mee for the longest time. I have finally got the chance to try it recently with my boyfriend after a day at USS.
I arrived during dinner time but managed to get a table within minutes. The decoration caught my attention and it is indeed remarkable. I sat down and enjoyed the view for a minute but soon, I made my way to the hokkien mee stall and was surprised to see that there wasn't a queue! Right then I was doubting my friend's review but still decided to give it a shot anyway. Sure enough, it was good! It's unlike our usual hawker centre's hokkien mee, it was cooked with some sort of sweet black sauce. I have been craving for it ever since.
My boyfriend ordered the bak kut teh. The stall had a really long queue but it was moving fast as everything was already cooked. He disliked it as it was the herbal soup kind instead of the clear peppery soup. (I liked it though!)
Other than the bad location that's obviously meant for tourists, this place is worth checking out!
After a long day exploring the thrilling rides at USS, Malaysian food street is the place to just relax and eat after all that fun.
I tried their claypot rice and their Hokkien noodles. Albeit it was tasty, it was a little exasperating to wait at least 20 minutes for the food to arrive. Before that, waiting for seats is also a torture, with a huge influx of people all entering at the same time. By then my legs were sore and I was so hungry! Luckily the food managed to compensate for the long waiting time.
The ambience was also pretty authentic too. Definitely felt like I was eating at Malaysia itself.
great ambience and food, but high prices
I loved the ambience at the Malaysian Food Street at RWS. Old signposts and facade of shophouses dotted the walkways, with various Malaysian food sold. As I was there with my family, we ordered a bit of (almost) everything to taste and share. My favourites are the satay and KL Claypot Rice. The satay(either beef or chicken, but you could split half, 5-5) was huge and juicy, and tasted great with the dipping sauce. [I think I ordered the large, that's why it was so tasty]
The wait can be quite long, up to 20 minutes or half an hour depending on what you have ordered. A token is usually given for the long waits though, so you can head back to your seat and relax. Although there are quite a number of people and some queues were long, I was fortunate enough to get my food quickly.
However, what I did not like was that prata is only sold after 2pm ):<
Cheapest yet most expensive
Probably has the cheapest food you'll ever find in resort world, yet the most expensive Malaysian food you'll ever find.
Ambiance was good, with a very 'olden' feel. Ordered a char kway teow, costed about $5. Portion was not too bad, but the taste isn't really there compared to the authentic penang one. Service was too slow for this price. Waited for almost 20 minutes just to order and receive my food.
"Cheapest" place to have breakfast in RWS
When I stayed in RWS in my brother's room, I did not get buffet breakfast because there were only two vouchers per room. So I had to bring my family out for breakfast and we thought this should be the cheapest place to have breakfast, at least this looked like a food court to me.
There were not many stalls open in the morning, if I remembered correctly, there was only the roti prata stall and the Chinese dim sum stall and there may be another one or two stalls but these were the two stalls that I bought food from.
The roti prata stall was so slow that more than a few customers got angry waiting for their food. They were not using the big round pans like most prata shops but only using a small rectangle pan for cooking the prata and at one time, only a few pieces can be cooked and I suspect they were using electricity and not gas so it took longer to cook a piece of prata. The worst part was the food there was not really cheap. Next time, I would just ask my brother to smuggle some cakes or breads out from his buffet.
