Spices Café Peranakan Buffet @ Concorde Hotel Singapore

Category : Buffet, Local Singapore Food, Promotions

Peranakan food isn’t a cuisine type I’m particularly familiar with, and hence not my 1st choice when it comes to food.

So it was really a rare opportunity, for me personally, when our team decided to lunch at Spices Café @ Concorde Hotel Singapore, to experience Peranakan food, buffet style.

Peranakan Buffet @ Spices Café serves up a very different variety of food, compared to other hotel buffets I’ve tried.

Firstly, the usual cold seafood section is absent. No salad either and in its place is a do-it-yourself fruit rojak section. Very interesting~

And (sadly) no cakes either. In its place are local delights like Bean Curd, Putu Mayam, a wide variety of Nonya Kueh and a do it yourself shaved ice machine, with a variety of toppings to customize your very own Ice Jelly and Ice Chendol.

What really got me excited were these little glasses of durian pengat, which instantly brought me back to Rendezvous Hotel and their yummy durian pengat.

I love and miss Rendezvous Hotel’s durian pengat. Alas the higher the expectations, the harder the fall…luckily I only took 1 durian pengat to start off with.

Moving on to the other sections, I enjoyed Spices Café’s Popiah & Kueh Pie Tee. It’ll be even better if the chef could spread more brown/sweet sauce for the Popiah 🙂

Being a huge fan of satay and otah, I personally have very high standards for these 2 items. So not surprisingly, Spices Café Peranakan Buffet’s version falls short, from my point of view. Especially their otah.

However, their main dishes section won me over with quite a few yummy dishes that made me go back for more!

Spices Café’s Lembu Rendang is especially tender and flavourful without any 羊骚味 (I tried translating this online and I almost laughed my head off because it was translated as Sheep Grievance). My best effort translation will be sheep-y, like fishy…Sorry guys~

Spices Café’s Babi Buah Keluak is also superbly marinated and stewed to perfection, tenderness.

Last but not least, the hugely popular Udang Asam. Thumb Up! The prawns are actually black in colour. And they are absolutely delicious. I would have gotten a 2nd helping if they weren’t flying off the plate so fast 😛

Dining Promotion @ Spices Café
For your information, we were there to enjoy the OCBC Credit Card Promotion where 1 dines free with every 3 paying adults.

We were also informed that there is an ongoing promotion for senior citizens, which explains why the restaurant was filled with seniors. We thought there was an event going on 🙂
