Celebrate Christmas and New Year 2018 at Hard Rock Hotel Penang

With a blink of an eye, we are fast approaching the merry and joyous season of Christmas and what better way to celebrate with a bountiful feast to indulge away specially for you at Starz Diner, Hard Rock Hotel Penang. For this year, the chefs has storm up the kitchen with new creations to please your palates with all the beautiful flavours and taste.

I'm truly glad to be reviewing my very first Christmas review for the year  2017 and again Hard Rock Hotel Penang has never failed to be the first to lit the Christmas mood up. Weeeeeeeeeeee

Okay, I'm sure you can't wait to see what awaits you for this year's Christmas. So shall we?

What you will be seeing is some of the highlights you can expect during this coming Christmas and New Year's Eve dining. Definitely that season to be jolly with all those good food. :)

 Starting off with a selection of antipasto.

Beetroot Tartare with Mango & Seared Scallops
The usage of Mango does give the item a nice twist of sweetness and fragrance of the mango. A pleasant taste when all eaten combined.

Watermelon Kerabu in Thai Sauce
Nice juicy and sweet watermelon just pleases the palate and makes you wanting more of it. The existence of the Thai sauce gives that mild spicy kick.

Chirasi Sushi in Shooters
Chirasi sushi was pretty cool as you get a variety of ingredients all in a bowl. Instead of eating one sushi of a kind per time, you can get to enjoy a few types all in a serving.

Maguro Carpaccio Aburi, Avocado with Japanese Dressing

Turkey Consomme with Mushroom Dumpling
What I love about this dish was the rich flavour that came from the stock and the fragrance of the mushroom, everything was just 

While on the main spread, the 3 highlights are certainly something not to be missed.

Seafood and Rice A'la Cacciatore'
A whole load of ingredients pack the top of the dish. For a moment it looks just like a paella.

Oven Baked Rack of lamb with Caramelized Onion, Mint Jelly & Soft Polenta
The lamb was nicely seasoned that every bite offered a nice tender bite and flavour. If you love lamb, then you will love this.

Confit of Duck Leg & Pink Radish with Cinnamon Apple

Roasted Whole Turkey & Spiced Chestnut Bread Stuffing with Giblet Gravy, Cranberry Glaze & Buttered Baby Vegetables
Somehow, Christmas meal isn't complete without Turkey and the Turkey prepared was simply gorgeous. It was just right, moist and tender. While the gravy and glaze was just beautiful. More slices please :)

Last but not least, an array of simply irresistible Christmas sweet treats to end the meal with.

Chocolate & Cherry Yule Log

English Fruit Cake with Glazed Fruit 
The fruit cake was such a hit. It was moist and wasn't too sweet. It has just the right texture and taste.  Some fruit cakes can be dry but I certainly enjoyed the one back here.

Strawberry Fruit Meringue
Adorable aren't they :)

Blueberry Panna Cottas
