Food Review: Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor

If you have read our previous blog post, you would have known that we were reviewing about our stay in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor . In this blog post, we are going to review the various food that we experienced at Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor from breakfast to dinner!

Our first dining experience at Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor was having dinner at The Grill at Cocomo. Located near the lobby, this open kitchen concept restaurant is a must-go to satisfy your western food crave. You can check out the above Instagram post for pictures of our food (and also the live cooking team)!

We have also uploaded a live video, as above, for you to have a feel of dining with your family at The Grill at Cocomo. Luckily our main course have arrived when the live video was recorded! As parents of an active toddler, we may say that it is quite a challenge to wait for food in an open kitchen concept restaurant, very stimulating for the inquisitive minds (our toddler was literally running around the area for as far as he can run). But we didn’t mind, as the food were perfect to fuel our almost-empty energy, especially the medium rare steak that Yusof had!

We had our breakfast at Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace a bit late the next morning, due to our toddler refused to sleep the night before (excuses, excuses). Check out the above live video to know what they serve for breakfast, how the breakfast area looks like, and the timing they serve the breakfast!

After breakfast, we went for a lengthy swimming pool play and then fuel up our tummy at the Fusion Restaurant in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. We must say, it’s one of the best Japanese food we’ve tasted so far! Play the above live video to have a look around the restaurant and know what we ordered for lunch.

The Chicken Porridge was tasty and approved by our toddler!
Shafa’s favourite: Sake Sashimi (Salmon)!
Unagi Maki (Rice Roll with Eel and Seaweed)
Yusof’s favourite: Tori Karage (Deep-fried Boneless Chicken)
Sake Sushi (Salmon)

The above are the pictures around the restaurant and the dishes that we tried. Our thoughts? Best Japanese dishes we’ve tasted so far! Not to mention the staff and restaurant manager were super friendly!

Dinner hours at Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace

Later that night we went to Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace again for a buffet steamboat. The dinner is served from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. Watch below live video for the look and feel during the dinner!

We were happy to be spoiled with many choices of food! Below are some food that were available during the buffet steamboat dinner.

We thought the next day will a bit more relaxed as we didn’t have food reviews in our original plan, since it was our check out day. But then Fusion Restaurant Manager invited us for yet another lunch to try their Teppanyaki!

Introduction & some starting actions by Chef Izam

As most of you would have known, the best part of Teppanyaki is to watch the Chef’s live cooking in preparing your food from scratch, with amazing actions! We were really looking forward into it, but we also know how active our toddler is. Thus, upon check out, Yusof was the one who took the videos & pictures of Teppanyaki from start, and Shafa came halfway through when one of the meals were ready (because at least our toddler won’t have to wait for the food and more time can be spent at the table instead of chasing him around). So Shafa basically missed the above introduction by Chef Izam.

Chef Izam in action

Too bad Shafa missed most of the actions performed by Chef Izam, such as the one shown in above video. But she’s still lucky to catch some actions, though. Watch below live video that Shafa manage to take when she arrived!

We even manage to interview Chef Izam once he’s done preparing our dishes. He is such a friendly person, indeed!

And that wraps up our food review of restaurants in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. We must say it was a really great experience!

Note: The visit was before the COVID-19 virus takes in. As parents of a toddler who are also living with an elderly, we do advise you to adhere to the government rules and guidelines by the Health Ministry. As a travel and food advocate, we definitely will help you to dream and plan for your next travel by feeding you with our travel and food write ups. Stay safe and be positive!
