Resorts World Genting
Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to check out the Ed’s Diner, an American retro-concept eatery in Resorts World Genting. It is their 1st outlet out of the United Kingdom, as well as the 1st pork free diner.
Ed’s Diner has operated in Britain since 1987. The franchise has over 15 diners across the United Kingdom, and is appreciated especially for its focus on great American music. Each diner is fitted out with jukeboxes loaded with hit music from iconic, chart-topping American acts, focusing on the classic sounds of the 50s, 60s and 70s, that reminds one of John Travolta’s movie, Grease. This concept complements its F&B offerings of American diner fare.
I like the restaurant’s interior design that mimic the familiar hangouts of good time America, with neon signs in the windows, black and white floor tiles, glossy red booths and shiny chrome-accented soda fountain stools.
Ed’s Diner in Resorts World Genting will feature a vintage Wurlitzer jukebox loaded with hits from James Brown, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Steppenwolf, Bruce Springsteen and Lenny Kravitz, whose music will set the mood for the diner. The jukebox – an authentic analogue machine, as opposed to the current replicas in production – might also be the first time many diners get to have a hands-on experience with selecting music from these iconic music machines.
Ed’s Diner promises wholesome food, served up the American way. Diners can expect a selection of appetizers to share, including nachos, BBQ chicken wings, and fries smothered with a variety of toppings.
Among the main meals are the diner’s famous burgers, served in their signature brioche bun, chicken tenders, chicken and waffles, and other menu items diners would have heard ordered in the movies.
The selection of Foot Long Sausages at Ed’s Diner include Coney Island Foot Long, Sambal Foot Long, All-In Foot Long, and the Classic Foot Long that comes with gherkins, crispy onions, ketchup, and mustard. You can choose to have beef or chicken for your sausage.
Served in tall, heavy glasses, the milkshakes will be one of Ed’s Diner’s signature offerings. Made extra thick, the ice cream shakes are based on a proprietary recipe.
Apart from single flavor shakes of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mint, salted caramel and banana, Ed’s Diner also offers deluxe shakes in Oreo, Nutella and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I found this special Buko Coconut Pandan Cake (RM28) on the menu, consisting of pandan ice cream, coconut pandan jelly, palm sugar, Love Letters, and whipped cream.
Come check out Ed’s Diner if you are visiting Resorts World Genting. Combining two great leisures, food and music, which are best enjoyed socially, making Ed’s Diner a perfect dining choice.
