Hard Rock Cafe Crowd Favorites

No visit to Hard Rock Cafe is ever boring. There is always a rockstar to tickle one's taste buds. And a recent visit revealed a new menu with limited-time menu making its way to being a permanent feature. And what makes it extra awesome for me personally is seeing some vegetarian items on centre stage! Carnivorous creatures like my hubster too took delight with some very meaty items.

The new add ons are available at Hard Rock Cafes in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Kota Kinabalu. So take your pick and make it a stop over at these 3 outlets for the merchandise, food and music! And if you fancy some alcohol, there are 5 new cocktails added on too!

The vegetarian rockstars are too good. So good, so tasty that even my carnivorous dining companions were impressed. One actually said "I never knew vegetarian can taste so good!" Well, vegetarian options have always been good and the folks at Hard Rock Cafe just made it even better!
Hard Rock Cafe
Southwest Spring Rolls RM38
Spring rolls stuffed with spinach, black beans, corn, jalapenos and mixed cheese. Served with a generous side of lettuce and guacamole - chipotle ranch dressing topped with diced red pepper and green onions. Finger licking good. The dressing was so good that many dipped the fries from their burgers into the dip!
Hard Rock Cafe
Cauliflower Wings RM38
Crispy Buffalo style cauliflower “wings” served with bleu cheese, celery and carrot sticks. So good that one pal actually dissected the wing determined to find some meat but was totally surprised that it was totally vegetarian! Delicious enough for me to insist on having a whole platter to myself. 
Hard Rock Cafe
Pasta Arrabiata RM45
Penne pasta tossed with a fiery fresh tomato and garlic sauce with seasonal vegetables, fresh chili and olive oil. Served with oregano, Parmesan cheese and garlic toast for a hearty carbo loading meal. 
Hard Rock Cafe
Cauliflower Burger RM48
More cauliflower goodness and I am not complaining! A house-made patty of cauliflower, garlic, egg, goat cheese, oregano and breadcrumbs, topped with zucchini, squash and Monterey Jack cheese with arugula, tomato and garlic aioli. Yes, my pal went prodding and dissecting the whole patty and found no meat. A right combination of ingredients for that hearty patty that even the meat loving hubster approved with 2 thumbs up. Finally a friendly burger for me for our burger, beer and music nights!

And if you need some meat with your salad, there is always the Haystack Chicken Salad RM55. A combination of fresh mixed greens, carrots, corn, diced tomatoes, pico de gallo and shredded cheese.
Topped with tupelo fried or grilled chicken breast. Tossed with ranch dressing and topped with spiced pecans and crisp tortilla straws. My photo doesn't do justice to the yum factor of this salad but it is really deliciously good because the plates were wiped clean!
Hard Rock Cafe

My personal favourite and I believe a crowd favourite that night of Southern Salad RM55. Tasty toss of greens, kale, vine-ripened tomatoes, turkey bacon, roasted corn, pecans and hard-boiled egg with vinaigrette topped with Southern fried chicken and a tangy barbeque drizzle.

The burgers got more exciting from our last visit. Burgers and Hard Rock Cafe go hand in hand in all their cafes around the world. Yummy, generous portion and always interesting!
Hard Rock Cafe
Atomic Burger RM63
Not quite for the faint hearted. A fiery beef burger topped with spicy fried onions, fried jalapenos, Monterey Jack cheese with arugula, vine ripened tomato and Atomic ketchup.
Hard Rock Cafe
Java Lava Burger RM63
The prettiest among all burgers and a very unique one with espresso rub and house-made lava sauce, crunchy java onions, melted Cheddar cheese, smoked turkey bacon, crisp lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and topped with a jalapeno.
Hard Rock Cafe
Serunding Burger RM63
A local twist to the burgers at Hard Rock Cafe. Beef patty with crisp lettuce, cucumber, carrot pickles, peanut sauce and topped with serunding i.e. beef floss. If you want it with more oomph, there's always extra peanut sauce on the side too!
Hard Rock Cafe
Tropical Burger RM63
The hubster favourite for the night and I wasn't the least surprised. A very refreshing touch to a meatilicious cheddar cheese burger with grilled pineapple, jalapeno mango salsa,
turkey bacon and arugula. 

Because no meal is complete without dessert, check out the old fashion freshly made Fresh Apple Cobbler RM45. A festive and comforting feel of apples, spices and pastry topped with walnut, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Food coma or not, desserts like this have a special department in the tummy!

THANK YOU Hard Rock Cafe for another memorable night. HRC was one of the few places that the hubster and I visited during our dating days till today. And it holds a fond memory till today because I lost and found my wedding ring at the steps of Hard Rock Cafe 16 years ago! A conversation and always a good laugh for us whenever we are here.
