Figured where to have your Breaking Fast dinner during the Ramadhan month?

This Ramadan month, join Concorde Hotel Shah Alam to ‘buka puasa’ with a vast selection of authentic Padang *‘salero bundo and many other local delights as well as international favourites.

At Concorde Hotel Shah Alam, they fully understand how much it takes to practice the teaching and intention of this auspicious month physically and spiritually. Therefore, their kitchen brigade at Melting Pot Café and Padang guest chefs headed by Mak Deli are busy whipping up an enthralling feast of authentic Padang mom’s cooking for this Ramadan month.

Ramadan month is one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar. Falls on the ninth month, the sighting of the crescent moon marks the beginning of Ramadan.  
During this month, Muslims wake up early to have their pre-dawn meal (Sahur) before the call for morning prayers (Solat Subuh). They will then fast for the rest of the day until they hear the call for the evening prayers (Solat Maghrib). 

Muslims fast during this holy month and offer more prayers than usual. This is a time of self-evaluation and self-reflection. They seek for forgiveness and forgiving others, resist to temptations, show more concerns to their community, express their love and rejuvenate relationships with their family and friends. In order to do these, it requires high level of patience, discipline, devotion and sacrifice. As this is a period to strengthen ties with their families and friends, Muslims usually break fast together with their loved ones.

Padang cuisine is specialty of Minangkabau people from Indonesia. 

Famous for its rich taste of coconut milk and red hot spicy chili, Padang Cuisine is very popular in Maritime Southeast Asia. Their heavy usage of spices mixture and various dishes cooked in curry sauce with coconut milk demonstrated its influences from India and Middle East.
