Christmas Rock n Roll Buffet 2015 – Hard Rock, Batu Ferringhi

Looking back at my first Hard Rock post that was many years back, it seems that my write up back then was so fresh and naive. Compared to now, the experience and way of expressing are so much different. Besides the difference in my write up, I have also noticed the reduction on the number of English food bloggers.

Overall, you can be assured of the quality and taste of the food here. The choices of the food are aplenty. Unfortunately, this time the buffet theme does not provide much Christmas feel. It feels more like having an International Buffet instead of Christmas-themed buffet.
