A lot of people have been asking "Why is there no seafood dishes in the menu?", so they've taken in the feedback and decided to come up with a few. I tried 4 of their new seafood dishes alongside with some of their Classic dishes.
First up was of course the drinks! This was a really yummy tropical blend of fresh mangos, strawberries, pineapple juice, orange juice and sweet & sour mix topped with lemon-lime soda. You can ask for it to be served in a Hurricane glass.
This drink is a housemade pina colada mix and pineapple juice blended with a strawberry swirl, served in a Martini glass. It was magnificent!
Crispy Sea Bass
I felt that this pan-fried sea bass fillet didn't have the fishy taste that lingers on a lot of fishes that I eat (and hate). It was soft and served with pesto sauce!
This was my favourite dish out of the 4! There's a variety of battered sea bass fillet, grilled prawns, seasoned fries WHICH WAS VERY ADDICTIVE, calamari rings and soft shell crab. It wasn't too overly greasy, as if I'm eating a platter of oil.
I like the prawns out of all because it was juicy and the meat was grilled well.
Chilli Crab Spaghetti
The garlic toast by the side sure made the dish looked angelic. I think. Oh well, it's an American thing!
This dish was very Singaporean style, with a little mix of Western! Everyone agreed that it looked and tasted very similar to another local dish - Mee Goreng. I felt that it didn't taste like pasta due to the sticky and dry taste. Also, normally I like to add cheese to my spaghetti, but there wasn't any for this dish. Not sure whether to classify this as spaghetti or not...
Do take note that this was a little bit too spicy for me. For spicy lovers, this would be heaven!
Crab Fried Rice
This was our last seafood dish. It was very unexpecting to find something so Asian style in this Western place. You can find crab meat, prawns and mushrooms hidden amongst the olive rice, all wrapped up in an egg omelette. Great for those who are looking for a healthy alternative and us Asians who need our daily carbs (rice)!
Hickory Smoked Bar-B-Que Ribs
Next up, we had their Classics. This was my favourite, and it's from their Smokehouse Menu! My eyes lighted up in glee as I tried this full rack of West Tennessee-style ribs, which is rubbed then basted with their authentic Hickory BBQ sauce. It was practically cooked to perfection, and the meat... It was meaty and easy to chew it off. It is served with seasoned fries, ranch beans & fresh coleslaw.
Twisted Mac, Chicken & Cheese
I posted a picture of this on Instagram (@iisjong), and I received a lot of comments telling me how this was their favourtie dish! From the Entrees Menu, this dish was served with garlic toast. Right on top of the macaroni is grilled chicken breast, topped off twisted cavatappi pasta. As for the macaroni itself, it is tossed in a lightly spiced 3-cheese sauce, with garlic roasted red peppers and Romano parsley bread crumbs. It's really yums, no wonder it got so many people salivating when they saw it!
Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae
Moving on to my favourite part of the night - the desserts!
This divine dessert we have right here is a combination of Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream and hot fudge on a fresh brownie, topped with chopped walnuts, chocolate sprinkles, fresh whipped cream and a cherry. It was sinful but worth it!
You HAVE to try this when you're at Hard Rock Cafe! With a cookie crust filled with a heavenly concoction of coffee and chocolate ice cream topped with hot fudge and crunchy almond flakes, this was THE BOMB. Up till today, I cannot forget the yummilicious of this.
Overall, Hard Rock Cafe is definitely a good candidate as an oasis for hungry souls who are looking for heaven in their mouth and bellies, and at the same time, bask in a pretty damn good environment. Now with the newly launched seafood dishes, it's definitely THE place to be for food! *licks lips*
