It's all about the festive season, with hotels and restaurants coming up with specialty dishes and buffet spread to celebrate Christmas and the new year. Just last week or so, I was at Concorde Hotel Shah Alam to sample their Christmas promotion. My first time dining in Concorde, I must say, I'm pretty impressed with the decor, environment and food. Check out what they have to offer.

|Traditional Pate and Seafood Terrine Fruit Gazpacho|
|Asparagus Head Soup with Sour Cream|
The traditional Pate and Seafood Terrine Fruit Gazpacho was a mish mash of sweet and savoury flavours. I'm not a big fan of pate, or any liver parts of any animals, but overall this dish did exude some Christmassy feel. I did like the Asparagus Head Soup with Sour Cream though, as its served piping hot and delicious to the taste.
|Slow Roast Lamb Rack with Ponzu Mint Butter Sauce|
|Roasted Prime Rib Eye with Pink Peppercorn Gravy and Yorkshire Pudding|
My type of food, the meaty ones. We had the Slow Roast Lamb Rack with Ponzu Mint Butter Sauce and the Roasted Prime Rib Eye with Pink Peppercorn Gravy and Yorkshire Pudding, both of which was a delight to savour. My first time trying out Yorkshire Pudding, which initially tasted like French toast to me, but with a finer flavour. Good stuff, the lamb and prime rib eye were both roasted until tender.
|Irresistible Sweets with Bavarian Cream, Log Cake, Fruit Stollen, Fruit Cake, Cookies, Ginger Bread Layer and Lemon Cream|
Sweet cakes and desserts are mandatory in any Christmas menu or buffet spread, at least that's what I would like. Here at Concorde, we had these really nice Bavarian Cream, Log Cake, Fruit Stollen, Fruit Cake, Cookies, Ginger Bread Layer and Lemon Cream.
On Christmas Day, the Melting Pot Cafe is offering an extensive Christmas Hi-Tea starting from noon till 4:30 pm. Perfect for an enjoyable leisurely family reunion during this festive day, the Christmas Hi-Tea Buffet is priced at RM66 nett per person, and senior citizens will enjoy a 30% discount.

Try the Rolled Chicken Baby Spinach with Honey Tamarind Sauce, Grilled Soft Butter Fish with Caramelized Orange Segment Sauce and Sauté Prawn ala Kiev. The Salmon Gravlax with Fruits Tartar and Oven Baked Lamb Crusted with Geiji Mint Sauce are not to be missed too!
End your meal with delicious Tiramisu and Blueberries Chantilly, Miniature Franzipan, Pistachio Almond Mousse and Ginger Bread Pudding.
