Spread Of Abundance At Concorde Hotel Singapore
Feast is always inevitable when welcoming the Lunar New Year celebration. Hence, the first meal on New Year Eve, the reunion dinner, is always gathered around with food that has good significant meaning. With that in mind, Concorde Hotel has concocted a line of delicious eat at their buffet for family and friends gathering during this joyous festive season.
The buffet is available from 27 to 30 January 2016 at Spices Cafe. If you prefer to dine at a round table, opt for the Concorde Ballroom instead.
Toss to a prosper and healthy year with the Salmon & Tuna Yu Sheng. The Yu Sheng at Concorde included lemongrass; giving it an added fragrance with twist. Indeed, it is wonderful. Personally, I would love it with more sourish punch. One complimentary platter of the Salmon & Tuna Yu Sheng is offered for a table of 10 pax.
Followed closely was the three combinations of Roast Suckling Piglet with Hoi Sin Sauce, BBQ Eel on Spicy Jelly Fish and Prawn with Mango Salsa. We were surprised that they are offering crispy roast suckling piglet at the buffet. Prawn with Mango Salsa was outstanding. The generous amount of diced onions elevated the flavours. As such, remember to savour the prawns together with the mango salsa to appreciate the entire taste.
Soup And Mains
Moving on to the soup and plethora of mains at the Spread of Abundance at Concorde Hotel buffet table.
Double-Boiled Korean Soft Ginseng with Spring Chicken Soup was the typical Cantonese soup. Even though I am not a soup person, in fact I usually avoid them, I love how Ginseng flavour mingled with the Chicken Stock. It is the perfect soup for a reunion gathering.
Fish is always a must at the Reunion Dinner as it represents abundance. Steamed Whole Garoupa with Superior Soy Sauce is presented for the Spread of Abundance at Concorde Hotel. For all seafood, as long as it is fresh, it taste best in its natural goodness when steamed.
Next is a western dish, in my view, the Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Bearnaise Sauce. As strange as it may be, but this is a delish piece of steak. I see that it is a great from the selection perspective, even though it is not a Chinese dish.
Ho See Fatt Choy with Long Cabbage is a dish which appears on the reunion dinner table without fail because this dish signifies prosperiy
Who doesn’t like lobster? Even those who are allergy to it will salivate upon the sight of the dish. Hence Braised Lobster and Baby Abalone, Sea Cucumber, Mushroom & Broccoli was included with one serving per guest on 27 January and 200g Braised Lobster with Fatt Choy on 28 January.
Assorted Wax Meat in Fragrant Rice on Lotus Leaf
Another tradition dish Assorted Wax Meat in Fragrant Rice on Lotus Leaf will steal most heart away. The scent of lotus leaf and wax meat were infused into the rice grain interplay with other seasoning resulted in an elevated experience.
No meal is complete without dessert and especially so during festive season. Deep-Fried New Year Nian Gao with Yam and Sweet Potato which is also a time-honoured Cantonese dish. The soft chewy rice cake when sandwiched with yam and sweet potato somehow reduce the sweetness and provide a different enjoyment.
Early birds enjoy nett prices for the buffets when bookings are made and fully paid before 15 January 2016, Sunday. Please note that deposits paid are non-refundable.
