Ming Ren Restaurant Lamb Specialties @ Highlands Hotel

Harlo people, I hope you have already eaten before continue to read my post =) Courtesy of Genting and Nuffnang, a few Highlanders (including me) were given a chance to experience the delicious Chinese Cuisine available at Genting Highlands, including a 2 days 1 night stay at Theme Park Hotel too!

Thanks to Genting, we took a bus from Wisma Genting all the way up to Genting Highlands. It was a safe and comfortable ride. We head to Ming Ren Restaurant immediately after we arrived!

"Ming Ren is a gourmet restaurant that specializes in authentic Xinjiang-style cuisine and Chinese fine dining. Xinjiang literally translates into "New Frontier" or "New Boundary"; likewise, Ming Ren Restaurant is dedicated to opening up new frontiers in exquisite culinary experiences while pushing the boundaries of taste and luxury."

The restaurant is bedecked with extravagant Chinese antiques alongside modernized interpretations of traditional elements, including an elegant bamboo partition and stylized textured wall embedded with gold ornaments. the lighting within the restaurant resembles the glow of a Chinese lantern, while the yellow-gold carpeting lends the venue an elegant air."

"Xinjiang cuisine mainly involves the use of lamb cooked in a dazzling array of styles. Ming Ren Restaurant offers only the best cuts of meat derived from the finest breed of lamb from selected pastures in the Xinjiang Ba Er Lu Ke region, which is located over 3,000 meters above sea level. The fresh air, clean water and chemical-free food used in this area ensure that the meat of the sheep is succulent, as well as low in fat and cholesterol. These succulent premium cuts are cooked to perfection with a delightful combination of innovative, bold and inspired culinary methods using a delectable range of herbs, spices and seasonings that are wholly imported from Xinjiang. All dishes are served in single portions for a complete fine dining experience."

羊肉派 @ Lamb Pie
One of the specialties in Ming Ren restaurant. This was my first time tasted a pie with soft lamb fill and you must put the whole pie into your mouth to feel the whole thing! That's a tiny piece of cheese on top of each pie.

手抓羊汤 @ Catch the Lamb
Milky Lamb Soup with Onion & Vegetables

'Catch the Lamb' was made by steaming the lamb bones for several hours just to get the essence. Different part of lamb bones will create different kind of smell. If you really like lamb, you will like the soup that's made of lamb's spine bone. Well, I personally like this bowl of soup the way it was. A little fire was lighted on to keep your soup warm too.

芥末虾球 @ Golden Crispy Fried Prawns Dressed with Fruits & Cooked with Wasabi
At first I thought the Wasabi will kill all my taste buds and chock me (No I can't really take wasabi) but amazingly the huge prawn is best served in this way. The fish eggs and wasabi blended well together. If you like prawn and wasabi you'll like this one

The main dish among all other Ming Ren dishes, that took 6 hours to prepare and you'll need to pre-order it or else usually it will be sold out. Nicely stewed lamb meat that taste soft and with strong scent because of the sauce that has been cook together for long hours.

杏香开心新疆雪糕 @ Special Xinjiang Almond & Pistachio Ice Cream
One of the desserts specialties in Ming Ren Restaurant. A piece of Pistachio Ice Cream covered with a layer of almond on top. The ice-cream is made with lamb's ingredient but you will only taste a mild scent of it. So no worries sweet tooth =) You'll still able to enjoy it like a normal ice-cream, just that this one taste different! Remember to eat the ice-cream together with the almond first without mixing it with the pumpkin sauce at the bottom. This is to make sure you are able to taste the ice-cream.

All the food served and showed here cost around RM 1,500. Thanks again to Genting for inviting us =)
