During our stay at The Haven Resort Hotel Ipoh, we dined at Cuisines Restaurant several times. Located at the clubhouse, this award-winning restaurant has great indoor and outdoor seating. We’re SO in love with its tranquil surroundings and breath-taking views.
Cuisines Restaurant is only opened to its hotel guests and residents at this moment. It serves buffet breakfast, ala-carte lunch and dinner offering Asian, Western and Mediterranean cuisines. Occasionally, they have themed dinner buffet too.
Personally, I love the restaurant’s strong focus on healthy and wholesome food at affordable prices. I understand that their chefs go to the market daily to source for fresh food. Only natural ingredients are used with NO MSG at all!
Now, I shall start with their buffet breakfast.
Daily Buffet Breakfast
After a good night’s sleep at our beautiful suite, we woke up for a fabulous buffet breakfast at Cuisines Restaurant. It offers a good selection of local and Western food, pastries and breads, cheeses and salads, cereals, homemade desserts, an egg station with scrambled eggs, fried eggs and omelettes, fresh fruits cut, juices, tea and coffee.
Edison enjoyed the half-boiled eggs made from the big white eggs. Their eggs are so perfect, and it’s certainly a great starter for him. Then, he went around picking his favourite Western food like mini pizzas, cheese, sausages and cereals.
V and I enjoyed their local breakfast more. My top favourite is their Ipoh hor fun – so satisfyingly soft and smooth, coated in an aromatic gravy. V absolutely enjoyed their nasi lemak with spicy curry chicken.
Ala-carte Lunch and Dinner
These are some of the food items we tried at Cuisines Restaurant during lunch and dinner.
This is Edison’s favourite – Haven Home Made Beef Patty Burger! Haha, burger and chips are always a sure-win for kids. However, this is not your regular burger. The beef patty is made in-house daily, grilled and served with a fried egg, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and cheese, along with salad and fries.
Much to my surprise, Edison finished the whole burger all by himself, I’m sure it’s very yummy!
We also tried their signature Haven Fried Rice, an all-time favourite fried rice served with large fresh prawns, squid, chicken and vegetables. It’s amazing that a simple dish like fried rice can taste SO good!
Mediterranean food is new to me, so I tried the Chicken Shawarma – boneless chicken breast being sautéed with onion and tomatoes. It’s also served with French fries, pita bread and garlic sauce.
I also tried their Char-Grilled Chicken Chop, and I loved it to bits! The perfectly grilled chicken chop is served with fresh vegetables, potatoes and topped with delicious homemade mushroom sauce.
V is a beef lover, so he ordered the Marinated Tenderloin Steak served with sautéed vegetables and potatoes. The steak was juicy and tender. Edison also tried the Fish & Chips – the moist, tender fish fillets wrapped in a light crispy batter is certainly not to be missed.
All in all, we enjoyed all our meals at Cuisines Restaurant. One thing that is worth mentioning – their staffs are also very polite and attentive. Cuisines Restaurant is the place where you can enjoy healthy wholesome meals with a beautiful ambience. I highly recommend it.
