Hard Rock Hotel Penang Christmas and New Years Eve Buffet

It is the time of the year when you hear Christmas songs playing all day err day at shopping malls,
jolly decorations and Christmas trees everywhere, the only thing lacking is snow.
Oh and that's a turkey. And goose. They're getting me all giddy!
As the joyous holiday is approaching, Hard Rock Hotel Penang
will be rolling out lavish buffet spread for Christmas as well as New Years Eve.
That's Chef Hazimin, their super cute junior sous chef posing with the highlights of the buffet spread.
Seared Rare Beef with Roasted Pumpkin and Pesto
Tiger Prawn & Mango & Avocado Salad
Hawaiian Crab Cakes with Green Pea Puree & Grilled Pineapple
Much improvements were made since my last visit to the hotel,
they have a new executive chef! Who was too shy for camera...
Chef Zul is very creative with his creation. Love especially the crab cakes,
it was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. 
Roasted Cajun Spice Geese | Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy & Cranberry
Glazed Nuts Bread Stuffing, Sweet Potato & Seasonal Vegetables
Turkey, the must-have for Christmas! This turkey was extra tender and juicy as it is organic!
The turkey was 70% grass-fed and bred in our tanah air.
The goose on the other hand, also organic, was succulent and lean.
Chocolate & Cherry Yule Logs
Another Christmas must-have, this yule log was too cute to be eaten!
The Christmas Eve Rock n Roll buffet dinner is priced at RM160++ per person at Starz Diner.
If you're not keen of buffet, opt for their 4-course dinner on Christmas Eve at Hard Rock Cafe.
It is available at the same price, which is RM160++.
If you fancy none of the above, go for their Turkey Pizza and Turkey Pasta
prepared specially by 
the popular Chef Joe at Pizzeria on Christmas day.
Scallop & Beetroot Salad with Vinaigrette
Tuna Fish Nicoise with Palm Shoyu Dressing

Chicken Galantine with Berry Relish

Pan Seared Salmon with Prawn Capers Salsa

Wok Fried Slippers Lobster with Dried Chili Flakes & Garlic 
Miniature Pandan Cherry Cheesecake
End the year with a bang at their glorious New Year's Eve buffet dinner!
All the highlights were lip-smackingly good, especially the wok fried slippers lobster.
Love the basil and garlic that added kick to the flavor.
Another favorite of mine would be the tuna fish nicoise,
looking at the pinkish meat alone makes me hungry.
The New Year's Eve buffet dinner is priced at RM172++ per person, available at Starz Diner.
For seafood lovers, head over to Pizzeria for their Seafood Buffet Dinner.
Priced at RM172++ per pax, the buffet dinner features charcuterie bar, carving station,
barbecue seafood, pasta station and Chef Joe's flying pizza.
Meanwhile, 4-course set dinner is available at Hard Rock Cafe at RM170++.

Abruptly end the food talk and bringing your attention to this tree.
The Christmas tree at their lobby, or Wish Tree to be exactly is a meaning one
as the ornaments are made of wishes to fight world hunger.
Inspired by Yoko Ono the activist who has been supporting the
Imagine There's No Hunger campaign, since the very beginning,
this wish tree aims to raise funds for sustainable agriculture education
and nutritional feeding programmes worldwide.

Get the wish tag at the Rock Shop at RM5, write your wish and hang it on the Wish Tree.
Let us all Take Time to be Kind!

Last but not least, a happy groupie with Sheryn, Angeline and Karen.
Sorry the photographer got shaky hands, too much chicken feet perhaps.

Huge thanks to Hard Rock Hotel Penang for hosting!
