THE FOOD

Cruise Passenger - - SHIP REVIEW: GENTING DREAM -

With more than 30 venues to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice. For break­fast, the main din­ing room serves buns and dumplings from 6.30am. There is also a full West­ern break­fast avail­able. The Lobby Café and Blue Lagoon is like a hawker cen­tre in Sin­ga­pore – full of gorgeous, spicy South­east Asian dishes. You can even en­joy a game of mahjong while tuck­ing into your noo­dles. If you’re in the Palace suites, there is a pri­vate din­ing room, with a truly eclec­tic mix of East and West. Silk Road is a stun­ning ex­plo­sion of crim­son decor with a set menu that in­cludes abalone. Umi Uma’s tep­pa­nyaki ta­bles are sheer ex­u­ber­ance, with singing and jug­gling chefs and fresh seafood and steaks. Our high­light was Aus­tralian chef Mark Best’s Bistro – an Aussie beacon in a sea of Asian cui­sine. Mark was on board and served us cre­ations from his team, in­clud­ing lob­ster ren­dang, his fa­mous three rivers Murray cod and the best co­conut ice-cream we’ve ever had. We even took Mark on a food tour of Pe­nang – a global foodie cap­i­tal. He loved it.
