New Rockin' Lunch Sets at Hard Rock Cafe, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

With the upcoming festive season, I bet you guys are eager to gather around with your friends and family members during the holidays (so lucky for those of you who still have lots of annual leave to your calendar) but of course, it's approaching towards the end of the year hence works are just mounting up with annual reports, etc that need to be submitted soon; at least for me. Still, being a typical Malaysian that's always struggling to choose where to eat during lunch hours, not to fret as Hard Rock Cafe, Kota Kinabalu has came up with new rockin' lunch sets with considerably affordable prices starting today.  Have a look!

Available on weekdays (Mondays to Fridays) from 11.30am to 2.30pm, there are 3 choices of entrée introduced every week for the next 4 weeks with 2 sets available:
  • RM25 nett - any entrée inclusive of two soft drinks or ice lemon tea or juices
  • RM38 nett - any entrée inclusive appetiser, dessert and free flow of soft drinks or ice lemon tea or juices ​

Now, let's go to the galore of entrée!

WEEK 1 |   SOUL (26 Nov - 30 Nov 2018)

These are entrées for this week! There are chicken chop, fish cutlets and you can't go wrong with pasta!

BBQ Chicken Chop
Seasoned boneless whole leg grilled to perfection and basted with barbeque sauce topped with barbeque onions with fries and coleslaw. 

Sweet and Sour Fish
Pan seared fish drizzled with sweet and sour sauce served with steam rice and mixed vegetable.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio Chicken
Succulent chicken sautéed with garlic, onion and mushroom tossed with parmesan cheese and slice red chili.

WEEK 2 |   JAZZ (3 Dec - 7 Dec 2018)

For the second upcoming week, there will be one of Hard Rock Cafe bestselling dish, fish and of course, another pasta!

BBQ Quarter Chicken
Chicken brined then basted with Hard Rock Cafe hickory barbeque sauce and roasted until fork tender.

Being one of core menu of Hard Rock Cafe, you have got to try this quarter chicken especially with the restaurant's hickory barbeque sauce; sweet (think honey and dark brown sugar), ketchup-based sauce that is typically found in Oklahoma City, USA barbeque places.

Grilled Cajun Fish
Cajun seasoned pan-dried fish served with mixed vegetable and tartar sauce.

WEEK 3 |   PUNK (10 Dec - 14 Dec 2018)

For the third week, Hard Rock Cafe is offering fish pasta, cheesy chicken and chicken salad!

Spaghetti Salmon Pasta
Salmon tossed with creamy lemon sauce topped with grated parmesan cheese.

Chicken Marinara
Grilled chicken breast basted with marinara sauce and topped with melted cheese served with mixed vegetable.

Caesar Salad with Tupelo Chicken
Fresh chopped romaine lettuce, tossed in Hard Rock Cafe homemade Caesar dressing, topped with tupelo chicken, croutons and shaved parmesan cheese.

Tupelo chicken tenders is actually one of Hard Rock Cafe's well-known dish that this theme restaurant pays tribute to birthplace of Elvis Presley with.

WEEK 4 |   ROCK (17 Dec - 21 Dec 2018)

Finally on the fourth week, Hard Rock Cafe will be offering fish, Malaysian classic favourite and vegetable pasta with bacon twist!

Breaded fish with Garlic sauce
Breaded fish deep fried till golden brown drizzled with creamy garlic sauce served with mixed vegetables.

Sweet and Sour Chicken
Chicken slice tossed with sweet and sour sauce served with steam rice and mixed vegetables.

Spinach pasta
Fresh spinach sautéed with turkey bacon, onion, garlic topped with chili flakes.

If you're more on vegetables, you can request for Hard Rock Cafe to hold the Turkey Bacon.

The outer area; such a great view!

As I've mentioned above, there's the second set that comes with any of the entrée with appetiser, dessert and free flow of soft drinks, iced lemon tea or juices.

Creamy Loaded Potato Soup
Hearty cream soup with potatoes cube topped with bacon bits, mixed cheese and spring onions.

Hot Fudge Brownie
Vanilla ice-cream and hot fudge on dense chocolate brownie topped with chopped walnuts, chocolate sprinkles and  fresh whipped cream.

Overall, I'd say these dishes offered by Hard Rock Cafe are pretty nice for a short lunch hours within the city. There's choice for everyone; for nasi-eater fellow to pasta-lover like me stessa to so I'm sure you'd find yourself loving any of the entrée along with drinks and I'd definitely will go for the set that comes with appetiser and desserts as I usually go for heavy meal during the day compared to dinner. But of course, if these dishes still aren't enough you can never go wrong with their Classic Nachos!

Tortilla chips piled high and layered with three bean mix, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, pico de gallo, jalapeños and green onions. Garnished with sour cream.

I guess that's all from me and I'll see you guys on my next post!
