Let’s have a peep onto the highlights for the joyous evening as below:

First, we’ll have Tiger Prawns with Mango and Avocado Salad as appetizer. Fresh prawns with cool salad dressing will always be the best to start off a meal.

If you are not a fan of seafood, there’ll always be the Seared Rare Beef with Roasted Pumpkin and Pesto. Not a bad combination though but I would prefer some beef jus added to add in more flavors.

The highlight of any Christmas meal will always be the roasted turkey, what more it’s organically fed without added antibiotic or hormone. We were treated with Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy with Cranberry Sauce, Glazed Nuts Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes & Seasonal Vegetables. Oh My… This is the best turkey I ever had and the meat was juicy and tender unlike others. Combined with the condiments of gravy and sauce plus the stuffing, it was a perfect meal for the whole season.

The next dish which was the Hawaiian Crab Cakes with Green Pea Puree and Grilled Pineapple was awesome. Soft in the inside will the juiciness of the seafood combined with the crusty outer layer was perfect for any party.

Christmas will not be Christmas without the Chocolate & Cherry Yule Logs. This was one of the good ones around.

Of course, there’ll be the English Fruit Cake with Glazed Fruits. Sweet as it is, it’s a great dessert to end the dinner over a cup of hot tea.

On top of that, there’ll be two more promotions for New Year Eve at Pizzeria and Hard Rock Café. Pizzeria will be having its Seafood Buffet Dinner featuring a charcuterie bar, BBQ seafood, pizzas, carving station and more while Hard Rock Café is offering a 4-course dinner at RM 170++ per person featuring a starter, soup, a choice of main course and dessert.

Overall, the dishes are specially crafted for the festive seasons and can be quite palatable for those who love to savor those once a year delicacies, especially that yummy and memorable flavors of the Roasted Turkey and Stuffing that still lingers in my mouth.

The Starz Diner is located at the left wing of Hard Rock Hotel Penang. Upon entering, just head to the left side and you will see a little glass door leading to the eatery.
