Chefs and the staffs of Hard Rock Hotel Penang getting all excited while tossing the Yee Sang.

Indulge in a medley of chef’s specialties from Cold Platter Combination such as 

Chicken Roll with Mango Sauce
Simple as it looks but when it goes with the mango sauce, it gives such nice taste. Chicken and mango oh yes it does compliment well.

Smoked Duck with Pineapple Sauce
You might have just though ah smoked duck would have been good on its own. Try it with the pineapple sauce and it gives a pretty nice taste in overall.

Pomelo & Mandarin Orange Salad
Every bite just burst in sweetness.

Young Papaya Salad with Baby Octopus

 Sliced Chicken & Jelly Fish with Oyster Sauce
Tender slices of juicy chicken taste awesomely good.

On the eve of Chinese New Year, Starz Diner will be serving a Golden Vegetarian Shark Fin with Crabmeat and Eight Seafood Treasure Soup. Rich in flavour and filled with much ingredients on every scoop of it. Makes you wanting more of it.

 Special highlights from the main dishes are the XO Chinese Seafood Fried Rice, Steamed Whole Chicken with Ginger and Black Fungus, Braised Lamb Leg with Superior Soy Sauce, Deep Fried Golden King Prawn with Butter and Chicken Floss, Stir-Fried Sea Scallops and Celery in Yam Ring and Braised Green Broccoli with Seafood Treasure and Black Floss. 

Thin slices of Braised Lamb Leg with Superior Soy Sauce was well marinated and had such nice flavours and I quite love that they slice it on a more thin slices rather than a huge chunk of it.

Steamed Whole Chicken with Ginger and Black Fungus is something to not miss out when you are there. Chicken was really tender and love the flavour that the chicken had.

Having steamboats are always merrier encompassing families during Chinese New Year dinners. There is also a steamboat station bask in an array of meat, vegetables and noodles accompanied with clear chicken soup and bamboo soup and a selection of sauces.

There nothing like ending the meal with such delicious sweet treats such as a bowl of delicious Hot Chinese Traditional Famous ‘Leng Chee Kang’, some Chinese cookies, Chinese Glutinous Rice Cake with Yam and Sweet Potato, Fried Crispy Shanghai Pancake and many more.

Oh I could go for rounds and rounds of their desserts too. Appealing and yummy for certain.

Enjoy sweet endings with a bowl of delicious Hot Chinese Traditional Famous ‘Leng Chee Kang’, some Chinese cookies, Chinese Glutinous Rice Cake with Yam and Sweet Potato, Fried Crispy Shanghai Pancake and more.
