Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur & Melaka: 2020 Christmas Set Menu

December 5, 2020

It might feel like a less festive Christmas, but there are still reasons to celebrate as we mark the end of one year and hope for a better one ahead. Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur keeps the spirit of goodwill alive with a merry scene throughout December, comprising snowmen, stockings, a fully lit Christmas tree, Santa boots, reindeer and all the other hallmarks of Yuletide cheer.

Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur and Hard Rock Cafe Melaka have unveiled their Kiss Me Under The Mistletoe Menu, a set menu available everyday till 3 January 2021. If you haven't been to Hard Rock Cafe in awhile, this is a terrific time to return, indulging in a fairly priced meal - the set costs RM128 nett for an appetiser, hearty main course, and dessert - as we head toward Hard Rock Cafe KL's 30th anniversary next year (the restaurant has been part of KL since November 1991, enduring through the city's numerous changes over the decades!).

The Christmas set menu kicks off on a vibrant note, reflecting the brand's international selection of specials for this season throughout the world. Hard Rock Cafe KL's own head chef Nazri harnesses nearly two decades of professional experience to ensure that each offering is beautifully executed.

We love the starter of the Blue Cheese Chopped Salad - a medley of mixed greens that includes fresh, quality ingredients like kale and baby spinach, tossed in a rich-tasting blue cheese vinaigrette and crumble, zesty with pickled red onions, red peppers and Roma tomatoes, made crisp with shoestring onions. The perfect appetite-whetter, bursting with reviving flavours.

There are no fewer than six choices of main courses - something for everyone among your family, friends and loved ones.

Our top temptation is the towering Surf & Turf Burger - a signature steak burger, featuring a chunky 227-gram patty, strikingly crowned with Hard Rock Cafe's One Night in Bangkok Spicy Shrimp, served with salt-and-pepper fries on the side and a unique chipotle aioli for delightful dipping. A behemoth of a burger for big appetites and beyond, bringing together a classic American burger with plump Asian-inspired prawns, lightly and crisply battered with a spicy kick.

If you prefer earthier flavours and creamier textures, choose the Mushroom Swiss Burger, which layers the Black Angus patty with roasted mushrooms, Swiss cheese, shoestring onions and leafy lettuce. This comes with more of the addictive fries and a garlicky aioli to keep you munching eagerly - it's clear why Hard Rock Cafe has millions of fans of its burgers across the globe.

Hard Rock Cafe is also a destination for steaks - its New York Strip Steak with Marinated Mushrooms for Christmas boasts a 280-gram NY strip steak of Australian grain-fed beef that's grilled to your preference of doneness, blanketed with shiitake and button mushrooms and smoked turkey bacon in a creamy, savoury sauce, partnered with seasoned fries and steamed vegetables. If you love sinking your teeth into thick steaks, this one will satiate your appetite.

The three other main course selections comprise the Original Legendary Burger (known as the burger that started it all), Grilled Salmon, and the Smoked Lamb Ribs (360 grams hickory-smoked juiciness, glazed and grilled with Hard Rock Cafe's house-made barbecue sauce). Dessert is the Holiday Brownie, a warm chocolate brownie topped with caramel and chocolate sauce, plus whipped cream - a sweet finish to inspire you with holiday joy.
