In my previous post on Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa, I mentioned that there are 3 Hard Rock Cafe restaurants in Singapore at Resort World Sentosa, Cuscaden Road and Changi Airport Terminal 3 Departure Transit Lounge. Together with Andy, ShiTing, Celes and HongPeng, we were down at Hard Rock Cafe Cuscaden Road to check out their new seafood menu.
Seafood Platter 4/5
We started off with the Seafood Platter ($28++). It came with an assortment of grilled prawns, calamari rings, battered sea bass fillet, soft shell crab served on a bed of french fries with tartar sauce. Fresh fried seafood with tartar sauce would never go wrong. Unfortunately, the grilled prawns will a little under cooked.
Crispy Sea Bass 4/5
The Crispy Sea Bass ($26++) was served with pesto sauce, mashed potatoes and vegetables. The pan fried sea bass was beautifully executed with a nice crisp on the skin and moist inside. However, I did not enjoy the pesto sauce pairing. I would prefer the sauce to be more zesty though.
Chilli Crab Spaghetti 4/5
I was actually looking forward to the Chilli Crab Spaghetti ($26++). Having tried the Chilli Crab sauce at Hard Rock Cafe, I knew it was good. The sweetness of the fresh crab meats and the spicy sauce coating the spaghetti was an enjoyment. If I could substitute the 2 pieces of toasted bread for a crab claw or maybe some fried soft shell crabs, visually it will look more value for money.
Crab Fried Rice 4.2/5
Last but not least, we tried the Crab Fried Rice ($20++). It was wok fried with succulent crab meat, prawns and diced portobello mushroom, wrapped in an egg omelette. It was very tasty and fragrant. Probably my favourite out of the 4 new seafood dishes in terms of taste but not the price.
Overall the new seafood menu at Hard Rock Cafe definitely passed the mark but the pricing maybe a bit challenging.
A great thanks to Natalie for having us and Andy for coordinating the tasting session.
