Boneless spare ribs with wild mushroom rice and popcorn cauliflower.  The ribs were moist and delicious, Iíd order them anytime in a restaurant.  The popcorn cauliflower was fantastic as well.

Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini with pesto sauce, and Balsamic Baby Portabella Mushrooms.  The Sesame chicken was good though it could have used more sauce.  The mushrooms were great and the chicken tortellini was very good as well.

Eggplant Rollatini.  This stuff is unbelievable.  Eggplant loaded with ricotta, tomato sauce, and cheese. Itís probably the best eggplant dish Iíve had in my life.  An absolute must try.

Eggplant Parmesan was the absolute best Eggplent Parmesan Iíve had in my life as well. Itís such a pleasure to eat so well while traveling.

Penne a la Vodka was good, though overshadowed by our massive portions of out of this world Eggplant dishes.

Honey Mustard Corned Beef.  This was a truly awesome mouth-watering dish.  Thick juicy slices of tangy corned beef, itís a real treat.

Glazed dark meat chicken stuffed with pastrami was awesome.  The couscous and green beans were good as well.

I wasnít such a fan of the Sino steak as it was a bit tough.

Fettuccine Alfredo was creamy and fantastic.

Baked Ziti was delicious as well.

Lasagna was good, but not quite up to par as some of the other dairy meals.

Absolutely perfect Chicken Marsala though I wasnít such a fan of the Shlishkes. The grilled Portabella Mushrooms were very good.

Hot pastrami was very good, but just canít compete with the honey mustard corned beef.  The Garlic mashed potatoes were phenomenal!

Ancho Marinated Hanger Steak had a fantastic flavor though it got a bit dried out unfortunately.  The grilled vegetables were very good.

The Mac and Cheese was very good, though obviously not as good as when the hotel heats it up for you.

Spicy Southern Fried Chicken Nuggets are outstanding.  The seasonings are just amazing.  The only thing Iíd like with it is a dipping sauce so it was perfect that we also had the meatballs below!

Meatballs were very good in a tasty sauce.

Mini stuffed cabbage were excellent as were the roasted potatoes and garlic string beans.

But this was what really blew me away.  The Delmonico steak in a red wine reduction was far superior to the steak that youíll receive in your local steakhouse.  And when a store figures out how to make a frozen steak that is reheated taste better than what most steakhouses serve Iím left completely speechless.  Plus itís packed with 2 of my favorite sides-the garlic mashed potatoes and popcorn cauliflower.

From various DDFrs -
 Honey mustard corned beef and the spare ribs were delicious.
The garlic green beans were a great side dish.
The cheese blintzes were fantastic
Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini

Every single dish, whether a fancy rib steak or simple tzimmes, was absolutely delectable. The General Tso's was saucy, spicy, and delicious

@Yehuda - August 2015:
Great - BBQ chicken nuggets, Baked breaded chicken cutlet, Buffalo chicken wings, Cheese blintzes, Penne ala vodka, Popcorn cauliflower, Roasted potatoes were great.
Okay - Ribs too fatty for me, Fire Poppers Chicken Nuggets too spicy for me, Garlic broccoli, Mashed potatoes
Bad - Roasted asparagus (was white asparagus)

I love their restaurant. They have the dangest corned beef sandwiches.

Shame they don't ship to Malaysia, although Awafi in Singapore will but will probably charge a fortune.

I was wondering that. What did they tell you? Have they done it before? I am heading back there in Jan. IMYH and would like to try the same.

 Why don't you just take it with? Customs in LGK was a joke.

You're kidding me, you're heading back there? I don't think you're gonna get the Beach Villa but I can try to put in a good word for you :)

I thought you told me it was impossible to take food into Malaysia. If it's not, then you're right, I'll get all the food in advance. I was thinking of bringing a sandwich maker and bread, and buying cheese in the kosher store in Singapore before we leave.

No, just Australia and NZ. I brought plenty of food into Malaysia. You can even find some Kosher products in the local supermarket

yes but it better be commerially packaged and you better declare it when entering! so bringing in sandwiches or fresh fruit or meat from a local butcher look out, no different then Israel where you also arent suppose to bring it in and if found they will take away the whole suitcase and burn it with everything that was in it not only the meat. Packaged franks or cheese isnt as bad in Israel dont know about AU or NZ

Australia and NZ are CRAZY about the whole customs thing. Unlike Israel where almost nobody gets stopped, EVERY bag must go through the x-ray machine and if they find something they will raise hell. Forget about Meat, Cheese and most other things. If you are not sure, Declare it and they will tell you. My friends and I once got stuck at PER for 5 hours because we tried sneaking in a pack of Hot Dogs

Would they stop packaged La Briute meals of Cheese Ravioli or Spaghetti and Meatballs?
So what do you do for food in Aussieland? Do you need to stop in MEL/SYD to pick up food before traveling elsewhere?
