It is the month of the year again when our Muslim brothers and sisters fasts to remember the hardship faced by the poor and unfortunate. Muslims around the world will abstain from eating and drinking from dawn until dusk during the Ramadan month.
In conjunction with this year’s Ramadan month, Hard Rock Cafe & Hard Rock Hotel in Penang will be providing diners an opportunity to taste Malaysian favourites alongside great American flavours that will tantalize your taste buds when fasting ends (buka puasa) for the day.
The festive feasting at Hard Rock Café takes on the form of a special platter designed for just for this “Puasa” month, therefore it is time limited. With the platter, we got to indulge ourselves in favourite authentic American selections like Mini Shrimp Quesadillas, Hickory-Smoked Bar-B-Que Beef Brisket, and Apple Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream alongside with local favourites like Tomato Rice and Chicken Curry with Potatoes.
The menus will rotate weekly and is available all day long beginning from today (21st July 2012) until the 18th of August 2012 at RM60++ per person. The platter also comes with soup of the day, selected local drinks and dates.
At the Starz Diner, the Buka Puasa Buffet includes a selection ranging from local appetisers like Rojak Buah-buahan, Pasembur and Kerabu followed by an array of main courses like Udang Kering, Ikan Masak Asam Pedas, Ketam Goreng Berempah, Ayam Masak Merah, Beef Rendang, Lamb Kurma, etc., that are filled with local Malaysian flavours. The buffet line ends with sweets that are sure to satisfy the traditional dessert lovers with their colourful line-up of various types of kuihs, pastries and traditional pudding or Pengat.
Come Friday and Saturday evenings, Starz Diner’s popular Great American Buffet would be available for breaking fast instead. It features most significant American favourites, but for this Ramadan month it will also incorporate some Malay fare to please our Muslim friends. The theme buffet priced at RM108++ per adults and RM54++ per child under 12 years old.
And on Sundays, they will be featuring Pizzeria’s Festive Barefoot BBQ that is priced at RM60++ (adults) and RM30++ (kids). This buffet line will showcase amongst others Marinated Lamb Chop, Gill Veal Sausage, Tandoori Sausages, assorted Satays and lots more.
“The idea of our festive offerings this year is to offer greater variety and selections for the enjoyment of our guests. We believe guests will return to Hard Rock Hotel within the fasting month to try the different variety of menus that is on offer,” said hotel general manager John Primmer.
Apart from dining, Hard Rock Hotel is also celebrating this holy month with a “you can’t resist” room package inclusive of suhur (breakfast) and buka puasa (dinner) at either the Hard Rock Cafe or Starz Diner for two persons per night’s stay for only RM399++ per room per night.
