Concorde Hotel Shah Alam has chosen ‘The Best of Kota Anggerik‘ as the theme for this year’s Ramadhan buffet available at Melting Pot Cafe.

I took the 7.25 am ETS train from Ipoh and reached KL Sentral at about 10.15 am after a slight delay. It’s been a while since I last took the morning train. I didn’t even sleep as I was afraid that I’d overslept like last time and miss the train. Took the KTM train to Shah Alam and reached the hotel at about 12 pm. I’m actually surprised I managed to reach before the event started.

The menu comprises over 100 scrumptious dishes.

Out of over 100 dishes, 10 of the hotel’s specialty dishes include:

  • Nasi Kandar Seksyen Sembilan
  • Asam Laksa
  • Daging Rendang Tok
  • Sambal Petai Pedas Manis
  • Ayam Kari Kapitan
  • Kacang Panjang Tumis Belacan
  • Kambing Panggang Berempah Bawang Putih
  • Sup Gear Box
  • Sup kambing Mamak

I hope it’s still not too late to wish GONG XI FA CAI! Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese friends and readers. So, last week I had the opportunity to do “Loh Sang” with my media friends and staff at the Concorde Hotel Shah Alam.

The ‘Loh Sang’ For Prosperity was held at RakuXin restaurant. Normally I’d take the ETS train from Ipoh but this time I decided to drive. It’s the holiday season so obviously, all trains were fully booked. It’s been so long since I last drove to KL. First time driving to Shah Alam! Thank goodness for GPS, huh?

It was my first time at RakuXin Restaurant. My previous two reviews were at Melting Pot Cafe.

I wanted to post this sooner but unfortunately, I’ve been down with sickness for more than a week. Vertigo, severe migraine, and allergies. I think it’s the weather. It’s been way too hot and my body just couldn’t handle it.

Earlier, this month, I was invited to sample and review the Christmas & New Year buffet at Concorde Hotel Shah Alam. Yay, Christmas!

Check out my other reviews of Concorde Hotel Shah Alam:

Yep, I went all the way from Ipoh to Concorde Hotel Shah Alam. I needed a break anyway so it was an opportunity to leave my problems for a day. I was very lucky to get a seat on the ETS train. The morning train was fully booked. When I was buying the tickets, there were only 6 seats left. I completely forgot that it was a long weekend. Friday was a public holiday (Maulidur Rasul).

I reached KL Sentral at 10 am, waited for the KTM Komuter which arrived at 10.10 am or so, and reached Shah Alam station at about 10.45 am. Took an Uber and reached Concorde Hotel Shah Alam at about 11 am.

I was happy to see Christmas-themed foods because Christmas is one of my most fave holidays. I wish there were more, though. I wish they had honey-glazed turkey because it is so good. Would be nice to see some gingerbread man cookies too because I really love them. Every year I would buy gingerbread man cookies from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

But don’t worry, though. Gingerbread house will be available during the Christmas Eve buffet dinner.

I was happy to see the Christmas log! And I love the decoration as well. It’s so cute.

Concorde Hotel Shah Alam will be having the ‘Citarasa 7 Kampung‘ as their Ramadhan Buffet 2017 theme this year comprising more than 100 dishes. They also had their annual Bubur Lambuk giveaway, a yearly event, on the day of the buffet preview where they distributed about 8,000 Bubur Lambuk packets.

SALAM RAMADHAN!

Note: This month has got to be the busiest and the most challenging month ever for me. I’ve had so many things happening, going back and forth many times Ipoh-KL-Ipoh in a span of three weeks, dealing with personal issues, emergency cases, and so on. Please bear with me as I try to quickly post all reviews as soon as possible. 🙂

The Citarasa Tujuh Kampung Ramadhan Buffet 2017 preview was held at Melting Pot Cafe on the ground floor level of Concorde Hotel Shah Alam, next to their lobby.

Earlier this month, I was invited to preview the Citarasa Tujuh Kampung Ramadhan Buffet 2017 Preview at Concorde Hotel Shah Alam. Apart from the preview, they also had a free Bubur Lambuk giveaway event on the same day. I stayed to see how they prepared the Bubur Lambuk.

I finished the Ramadhan buffet preview at about 3.30 pm. Then went outside to see Concorde Hotel staff preparing the bubur lambuk.

The Bubur Lambuk giveaway event is their yearly event at Concorde Hotel Shah Alam. Distributing Bubur Lambuk prior to Ramadhan month has been the hotel’s annual event since 2004, making it the 13th consecutive year for this event.
