Bintang Rock Buffet 2014 @ Hard Rock Hotel Penang, Batu Feringghi, Penang!!!
Looking for a place to berbuka puasa? Give yourself and your family members a rocking buka puasa experience at Starz Diner, Hard Rock Hotel Penang!
Newly revamped Starz Diner with the Action & Craving Station at the previously outdoor dining area. It is very beautiful now. Now, fully air-conditioned. KayaButter find that this area is much cooler than the one inside. Either the air-conditioner is newer or the place has lesser yellow lighting from the food area.
Mixed Porridge (Bubur Lambuk)
The porridge is very flavourful especially its strong black pepper taste. Surprisingly, the porridge is not too thick compared to what Butter had in another hotel. Definitely a great appetiser.
Lamb Broth (Sup Kambing Ala ‘Mydin’)
Steamed Fish with Soy Sauce (Ikan Kukus Dengan Sos Kicap)
One of KayaButter’s favourite all-time dish. Kaya finds that the meat of the fish is a bit too hard to my liking. Overall, it is quite a decent dish.
Wok Fried Baby Pak Choy with Garlic (Baby Pak Choy Goreng dengan Bawang Putih)
Braised Blue Crab in Turmeric & Coconut Gravy (Ketam Masak Lemak Nanas)
Mackerel Fish Curry with Okra (Gulai Ikan Tenggiri Bendi)
The fish meat is soft and nice to chew. The curry complements well with the fish. The okra is a bit let down because it is rather hard to bite. Maybe they used old okras.
Prawns Sambal with Petai (Sambal Tumis Udang dan Petai)
Petai lovers will definitely love this. The prawn is rather troublesome as they might have cooked the prawns too long. It is not easy to take out its shell.

The friendly chefs who are behind this Bintang Rock Buffet.
If you still wish to have the American style of dishes to break fast, Hard Rock Hotel Penang has something to offer you which is ROCK PLATTER. Even though the menu writes that this platter is for 2 persons but personally KayaButter feel that it is more suitable for 4 person. Their portion is BIG!!!
ROCK PLATER 2014 (MENU A) RM70++ per person (Standard Platter for 2 person @ Rm140++)
MAIN COURSE: Onion RIngs, Chicken Briyani, Spaghetti Marinara, Chicken Portuguese, Vegetable Spring Roll, Grilled Mini Shrimp Quesadilla, Hickory-Smoked Bar-B-Que Beef Ribs and Mini Beef Burger with Rendang Sauce. It also comes with Starters: Soup of the Day or Lil’ Citrus Chicken Salad, Dessert: Mini Apple Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream and Beverage: Local Drink and Dates.
Their Teh O Laici awesome which is one the rightmost picture. We can’t stop drinking it. You get to put in the laici pieces into your drink. Awesome stuff. And oh ya, they also have our Malaysia favorite tea which is tea tarik. Very rich in aroma and thick. It will be a bit sweet for those who are cautious with sugar.
Hard Rock Hotel Penang’s Bintang Rock Buffet has improved a lot compared to last year’s with more variety of choices and better food. Check out my previous post here of last year’s (2013) buffet. There will be some changes in the menu every week. Do take note.
Many thanks to Phillip for the invite and the rocking great hospitality from the chefs and the staffs.
