KL Gastro Adventure: Day 4 – Icy Genting & Fire-y Satay

26 06 2007

A back dated series post which should’ve been finished by now. I’ve 15 days left in my holiday before moving back to a junk room, getting a new roommate, and lots of cleaning, unpacking to do.

After our market exploration, we rode the commuter to KL Sentral. I was amazed at how cheap it is to get to Genting! I bought the ticket 2 weeks ahead which cost only RM26 inclusive of:

Return bus transfer
Return Genting Skyway transfer
Genting Outdoor Theme Park Day Ride Pass

Genting #1

1 1/2 hours later, we were already standing in line to board the Skyway. We didn’t have to queue to buy tickets. Heehee. The weather was superb when we reached the top. Actually it was extremely cold! But for a change from the stuffy humid weather down there, the freezing windy air feels damn good. Until 2 hours later, when the fog began to thicken and 90% of the rides had to shut their operation.. we waited in line huddled together like 2 lost penguins. We were shivering mad as the cold wind keeps hitting us. Thank God we came out of there alive to catch this beautiful sunset…

Genting #2

Genting bakery

Ah, borrowing the warmth from the bakery. They have a sumptious looking selection of pastries. Cost at least RM3 above.

Muar chee #2

Muar chee #1

Muar chee #3

We stopped and bought a pack of RM5 muar chee with assorted flavours – pandan, peanut, original and black sesame. We chose to have only the black sesame. The presence of black sesame flavour was almost undetectable. Moreover, it has this shell of black glutinous flour surrounding a core of white glutinuous flour instead of entirely a ball of glutinous flour made from black sesame paste.

After a frightening bus ride with a puny brained driver who thinks he’s handling a low gravity vehicle, we arrived at KL Sentral in one piece. To soothe our nerves, more food required =D

Gopala satay #1

Jian heard about Gopala’s vegetarian satay from Ho Chiak and we went in search of it along Jln Tun Sambanthan. We had to ask for direction because it was located behind the row of shophouses after walking from the interconnecting walkway to Sentral monorail. We walked through to the back of the monorail station, turn right and found a shop with a satay griller. Bingo!

Gopala satay #2

One taste of the mock meat is all that’s needed to convert me into a vegetarian food lover ;) It tastes so damn good! Even yummier than real thing and satay kajang for that matter. The peanut sauce has curry powder in it which makes it different from the Malay version. Orgasmic stuff, I tell you. However, you gotto eat it fast or the soy bean flavour begins to emerge once cool. RM5 for 5 sticks.

Gopala - fresh milk

I had a glass of fresh milk which curdles and form a layer of plasticky thing after leaving it untouched for awhile. The milk is so delicious and smells outrageously good. I kept sniffing from the cup after I emptied it. Hehe :P OMG, I have to come back to this place ^_^
