Hard Rock Hotel Penang’s Great American Buffet

Posted by Jason Wong On April - 3 - 2012 |

The Hard Rock franchise being an American brand, will be introducing an American themed buffet coming April 6th, 2012. Recently, we were invited together with other journalists from mainstream print media and magazines to a simple media preview before the actual launch of the buffet. The “Great American Buffet” will run from April the 6th onwards, on Fridays and Saturdays at their in-house Starz Diner for dinner only. The buffet is priced at RM108++ for an adult and RM54++ per child of below 12 years old.Hosted by their Sales & Marketing Director, Ms. Betty Lim and their Marketing Communications Manager, Ms. Elisa Saw, the media entourage was given an introduction to the concept and items that will be featured in their themed buffet line. Each individual item that will be showcased in their Great American Buffet has been carefully picked by their Executive Sous Chef, Mr. Beh Aik Aun and prepared by their dedicated team of chefs. The items that have been selected are significant and are popular dishes widely enjoyed by the people of United States of America.The buffet spread with over 70 dishes includes appetizers, salads, hot and cold entrees, chilled seafood on ice and a line up of desserts that will tantalize every foodie’s taste buds. The appetizers rage from their signature “Prawn Salad with Tomato & Basil” to their signature “Buffalo Chicken Wing with BBQ Sauce” to the much accepted Tex-Mex style Guacamole and Nachos to soups and chowders.

As Hard Rock Hotel Penang’s GM, John Primmer put it, now with the Great American Buffet one would be able to savour the popular dishes from different American states and enjoy the fun and entertainment that is synonymous with the American brands’ “trained” servers while dining. All these are possible at a reasonable price of RM108++ for an adult and RM54++ per child of below 12 years old, minus the long-haul flight ticket to USA.
