[Part 2] Resort Seafood Steamboat Restaurant / Superstars of Magic 4 ❤

Continuation from the previous post which I mentioned about Behind-The-Scenes tour, we went for dinner later on at Resort Seafood Steamboat Restaurant which is located at Level 1, Resort Hotel. At Resorts World Genting, the temperate weather is always perfect for Malaysia's favourite one-pot comfort food - steamboat dining.


We had the opportunity to enjoy the invigorating pleasure of do-it-yourself cooking at the newly-revamped Resort Seafood Restaurant. With the spacious setting (the restaurant seats 256 persons) and relaxed ambience, it takes the hotpot experience to a new level, far and above the sweaty mood of showing in the lowlands heat.


The talking points of a steamboat get-together are always its freshness and variety: ingredients, soup stock and sauces. I strongly believe that Resort Seafood Steamboat Restaurant has what it takes to be all thanks to Chef Lai Kok Yeow and his kitchen team.


On the other hand, the ultimate 'kick' in steamboat is the soup stock for dipping and cooking. Resort Seafood offers exciting contrasts - spicy and nourishing - with tomyam and herbal chicken soup flavours in a 'yin yang' style black pot. 

No less than 20 different of sauces are also freshly prepared, every day. We get to sample and mix a variety of unique flavours - from smoothly light soya sauce to premium oyster sauce, green chilli sauce to fiery, slow-burning chilli oil - that enhance the succulence and taste of our favourite steamboat items. 




Different types of food were served and there were a list of food in the menu for you to choose from. At Resort Seafood, all ingredients are freshly kitchen-prepared, straight from the market and aquarium, or air-flown and the soups are additive-free too.


Steamboat at Resort Seafood can also become a casual fine-dining occasion, complemented by imported catch: Canadian geoduck (best served with wasabi), Australian snow crab, Boston lobster, from the aquarium. These can be prepared for the steamboat, or cooked in the diner's preferred style by the kitchen.  They taste good even without any seasoning. 


Top off the steamboat banquet in the highlands with a dish of fried rice or noodles and a choice of mildly sweet desserts. The dessert which was served on that day was the ice cream steamboat. It contains fruits on top with chocolate ice cream at the bottom. The fruits were really fresh ranging from longans, strawberries to jackfruits. *om nom nom*


Resort Seafood offers set steamboat menus, from RM108 nett to RM638 nett (2 - 8 persons, member / non-member prices vary) and a la carte dining (priced by item). Resort Seafood operates daily for lunch (12 - 2.30 pm) and dinner (6-10pm). For further enquiries, please call 03-6101 1118 or visit www.rwgenting.com.

After the hearty steamboat at Resort Seafood Steamboat Restaurant, we were given the chance to watch magic performance live in Genting! Frankly speaking I have not watched any magic performance live and it would be an honour to witness these performances with my own eyes. *wide grin*


Asia's largest magic variety show, Superstars of Magic 4 is into its 4th year running, and this year's instalment promises to be bigger - if not better than ever before. 7 world-class illusionists will weave their magic on stage, and are set to wow and bedazzle their audience with their respective brands of illusion. The show will be held at Genting International Showroom from 10th July to 25th October, 8pm (Monday to Friday), 4pm and 8pm every Saturday and 4pm on every Sunday.

The illusionists demonstrated to us a comparative view of what magic is to different people - depending on whether they are from the East or West. They also highlighted how magic has evolved with technology and the audience hence can expect the show to be one breathtaking spectacle.


From Taiwan, there's Jeff Lee, an award-winning celebrity magician who performs with TV magic and modern music. Jeff takes pleasure in delighting his audience by speedily taking things out of his TV.



Ted Kim, from Korea is another show-stopper. The current FISM originality act champion holder, Ted's act is one of a kind and infuses modern screen mapping technology and LED Projector technology. He's a breath of fresh air in the field as he incorporates the latest video games and music to his act such as Super Mario Brothers. No doubt Ted is a winner among the younger generation.


Ted's countryman, One Gun, is also among the hottest magicians in Korea and one of my favourite magician. *wide grin* He performs his T-shirt act throughout the world. One Gun would literally step onto the stage in a casual T-shirt and jeans and promptly stun his audience with his clothes that on there own keep changing in colour and type - right before the audience's eyes.

Joseph Gabriel
The two Americans illusionists in the show are Joseph Gabriel and Jay Mattioli. Joseph's show is regarded as the Godfather of Dove Magic, and his show headlined broadway in the past. His act is said to be light years ahead of the classical dove act that we are all familiar with.


Jay is a celebrity magician in his own right. He first made his mark as a finalist magician on America's Got Idol (ACT), wowing America with his sense of comedy and charm. He ultimately climbed his way to the top 10 of America's Got Talent.



Last but not least, there's Shawn Farquhar from Canada, the current the International Brotherhood of Magician or IBM President has appeared on the Ellen Show and was one of the few magicians in the world who managed to fool Penn and Teller on their hit TV series. He is acclaimed by his peers to be the sleight of hand artist of our time and he proved this true when he won the FISM Close Up Championships of Magic in 2012.


We were fortunate enough to have meet and greet session with the illusionists and of course I would not want to miss this opportunity to grab a few shots with these amazing people. (:
