Seafood lovers, this buffet is for you! Concorde Hotel’s Harvest of the Sea Buffet offers a plethora of excellent seafood dishes that almost made it seem like you’re dining straight from the sea!
Diners can look forward to a lavish start of Sambal Lobster, Gratinated Cheese Lobster orBraised Baby Abalone with Broccoli & Mushroom (one selection per diner). The sambal crustacean is not for the faint-hearted; its heat will jolt you up instantly.
The stars of the buffet are undoubtedly the cooked-to-order crabs, which comes in a range of appealing flavours- Chilli, Black Pepper, Sauteed Saffron, Butter & White Pepper and Salted Egg. I personally love the salted egg flavour, followed by the black pepper. If you prefer something more unique, go for creamy Butter and White Pepper Crabs. What’s even better? You can enjoy unlimited portions of these mouth-watering crabs!
Moving onto the buffet stations, the Salad Bar comprises of a variety of salads and cold cuts as well as a section for diners to customise their own greens.
The Chilled Seafood Counter, where fresh crustaceans are neatly laid, is a sight to behold.
Cooked Food Station choices include: Stir-Fried King Prawns/Braised Sea Cucumber, Chinese Mushroom with Broccoli/Stir-fried Fish Maw with Egg White/Wok-fried Spicy Clam wrapped with Lotus Leaf/Roasted Leg of Lamb with Garlic Sauce/Baked Red Snapper & Mussels in Cream Cheese Sauce/Chicken Piccata with Tomato Sauce/Grilled Vegetable with Balsamic Sauce/Sauteed Sliced Venison with Mushroom & Herb Sauce/Steamed Garoupa with Garlic and Glass Noodles/Stirred Fried Scallops with Asparagus & Fresh Lily Bud.
My top picks are the flavoursome Wok-fried Spicy Clam wrapped with Lotus Leaf and healthy Stirred Fried Scallops with Asparagus & Fresh Lily Bud.
Grab a bowl of piping hot, fragrant Laksa from the Live Station. Don’t miss the Drunken Live Prawns in herbal broth, which comforts and nourishes simultaneously.
Fans of carved meats will enjoy the Roasted Ribeye Beef, complemented with Black Pepper or Mushroom Sauce.
Desserts are not the buffet’s strong point, but that’s alright with me, since the fantastic seafood, cooked food and live station offerings made up for it. Not that they are bad, but the sweets just did not wow me. Desserts come in mini portions, to allow diners to sample as many as possible. Options include: Green Tea Panna Cotta, Baked Cheese Cake, Hazelnut Gateau, assorted Nyonya Kueh, Guava Jelly, Mango Mirror, Crème Brulee, Tiramisu, Assorted Fruit Tarts, Chocolate Fondue, Orh Nee with Gingko Nuts, Ice Kachang, Ice Cream and Cheese Platter.
