The Hard Rock Cafe Penang adapts a classy and stylish concept adorned with red-painted walls and splashes of gold. The walls of the cafe are decorated with authentic memorabilia of artists from different decades. During this festive holiday season, Hard Rock Cafe has prepared a “Holiday Rock Platter” catered for families or even group of people who can celebrate the happiness together.
The “Holiday Rock Platter” has the following dishes:
Shellfish bisque with sweet basil soup
BBQ Beef Ribs
Piri Piri Chicken Wings
Legendary Hollywood Burgers
Grilled Shrimp skewer with Kalbi sauce
Baked Fish with Charmoula sauce
Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream
Shellfish bisque with sweet basil soup – This is a French origin soup. It is a very thick and creamy based soup cooked with shellfish. This soup should be taken when it is hot, else it will be very thick and salty.
Onion Rings – The battered onion slices were deep fried till golden perfection and served with home-mixed barbecue sauce. No one can resist this simple and delicious crunchy goodness.
Grilled Shrimp skewer with Kalbi sauce – Kalbi sauce is Korean’s favorite barbecue sauce. It is sweet based and with a hint of saltiness as well. The coating of this sauce made the chewy fresh shrimps even more appetizing.
Penne Arabiatta – The pasta which has been mixed with some chili pepper and tomato paste, topped with some cheese and chopped onion, it is simple and satisfying.
Legendary Hollywood Burgers – The classic and yet compacted patty, the taste was very rich and packed with flavours.
Piri Piri Chicken Wings – The chicken wings were marinated with piri-piri sauce which consisted of crushed chilies, citrus peel, onion, pepper, salt, lemon juice and some paprika. This dish was quite spicy, but will be very exciting for those who love spiciness.
BBQ Beef Ribs – The grilled tender and juicy BBQ beef ribs, which is the main highlight for the platter. The barbecue ribs were covered with the tempting home-mixed barbecue sauce and overall it was a fulfilling and divine dish.
Cowboy bean – this was cooked with pinto beans, garlic and slices of onion which tasted like baked beans to me.
Baked Fish with Charmoula sauce – This Moroccan sauce was made from fresh herbs, garlic, lemon, and warm spices. The taste was similar to our “ikan bakar” (Malay Style Baked Fish).
For those who do not take beef, you can opt to replace the beef ribs and beef burger to chicken thighs and chicken burger.
Barbecue chicken thigh – Comparatively, the barbecue ribs were more juicy, flavourful and tender. However, the chicken thighs could be a good option as well when served with their signature barbecue sauce.
Chicken burger patty instead of beef patty.
Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream – This is a heavenly enjoyment towards the end of the meal. The hot brownie was served with chilled vanilla ice cream which made a great combo. I simply love this dessert.
Overall, this platter is great for sharing among family and friends. The portion is guaranteed to last you till the end of the day.
The platter is currently offered at Hard Rock Cafe Penang from 1 November – 23 December 2016.
