Bubbles and Bites is Genting Hotel’s latest baby and is fast becoming a popular place for diversion on the mountain top. Purple hues, staff attired in funky designer shirts and classic Levi 501’s, simple tables with sturdy aluminium chairs and a relaxed easy going ambience create a diner style restaurant that might have been taken straight out of the USA. Absence of a staff with an American drawl is no distractor as the look is further formed with sports screens, giant burgers and rolls of paper towel on every table.
Fun is the primary goal of Bubbles and Bites, proven with an enormous selection of bubbles in bottles. From soft drink, to beer, to mixed cocktails to champagne, just about every form of a carbonated drink can be found in individual servings. The Bottega sparkling range is a definite highlight and starting at RM19 per bottle everyone can add a little fizz to their meal. The swanky looking Bottega Gold is a must try. Those with a sweeter tooth will enjoy the Moscato variety, while folks looking for a touch of dryness should order Bottega’s Prosecco D.O.C.
A menu dominated by pasta, pizza, burgers and salads proudly offers generous portions for reasonable prices making it ideal for a group of friends to watch a game or just hang out over some filling bites and effervescent beverages. Chef Abdul Rashid, sous chef, has been with Genting since the opening of Bubbles and Bites and reports that his kitchen holds premium produce and home made dishes in high esteem. From pasta to cheesecake, all are made in house from scratch. Living by the motto of ‘serving food from the heart’, it’s good to know much of their menu is heart healthy too, using no MSG and limited salt.
But it’s not just bubbles and burgers that attract. A chilly 17.7 degrees Celsius makes the perfect environment for a thick, velvety smooth hot chocolate. Clouds billow in as you’re snugly seated and the hot beverage provides a contrast to the brisk hill air. Choc-issimo by Musetti is used to create their Signature Chocolate, which comes hot or cold. Besides a regular size, it’s also available in small espresso cups, which will leave you sweetly satisfied but not guilty over excess calories.
Reason to visit: sharing size portions at reasonable prices, velvety smooth hot chocolate, bottles of bubbles in many forms
