Concorde Hotel: Warung Nasi Padang Ibunda

In conjunction witht 2013 upcoming Ramadhan / fasting month, Concorde Hotel invited Ibu Dewi, Nia and Nahendra to unveil mom recipes at Concorde's 'Warung Nasi Padang Ibunda' food promotion at Melting Pot Cafe and Concorde Ballroom on July 10 - August 7, 2013
The Padang food beg to differ from other variety of choice when it comes to fasting month and Padang food is also popular in neighbouring Malaysia and Singapore, famous for its rich taste of succulent coconut milk and spicy chili. Padang foods are closely similar to Malay cuisine and the distinct lies between the cooking method / preparation and though some minor ingredient may be added while preparing Padang food, it actually boost up the flavor and/or aroma of that dish.
The ballroom and its surrounding area was heavily decorated with Rumah Gadang (Minangkabau: 'Big House') both on the stage as well as a backdrop area. The overall ambiance is rather classy yet soaked with the traditional feel that define the theme. Among the signature Padang dishes are

  • Soto Padang,

  • Ayam Goreng Rempah
  • Ayam Gulai Pop
  • Gulai Perut Lembu
  • Gulai Ikan Goreng Lado Hijau

Dessert Area

In general most of the dishes here were good and unique in its way be it aromatically or taste wise. However not every food I tried memorable. Personally I think the Mee Rebus Johor did surprise me in an unexpected manner. The thick and sweet 'kuah' make an impact upon my first sip and it was satisfaction thereafter with the classical ingredient to go with.
While most of the dish may look hot and spicy they aren't. In fact the only dish that actually burn my mouth was 'Ayam Merah' with a strong flavor to it. Most of the chicken were pretty dry and the one dish that is especially noticeable would be 'Ayam Goreng Berempah' as it doesn't have any gravy to go along with. What I enjoy most about this Ramadhan Buffet is definitely the mixture of several cuisine that would attract diner with all sort of preference. Though the Chinese Cuisine doesn't have much to shout about, the fresh seafood was definitely a pleasure. I couldn't resist the colorful dessert that is not only eye catchy but also deliciously good. They weren't overly sweet and is just nice as it should. I especially love their chocolate based dessert with a little bitter to it.  Beside traditional drink like coffee, teh tarik, and sirap bandung, they do serves sugar cane and soya bean too.
