ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF HARD ROCK CAFE JAKARTA

Hard Rock Cafe Jakarta has opened its doors again, marking the rebirth of the Cafe amongst the cuisine and entertainment scene of this vibrant city. And also the famous Rock Shop, with its modern and exclusive retail look and feel, provides a wide array of merchandise, from exclusive designs to t-shirts to the collectible Hard Rock Cafe signature pins.


The Legendary Burger lovers rushed to the Hard Rock Café Jakarta! Today the Hard Rock Café will celebrate their birthday with a party of Legendary Burger, where Hard Rock Café Jakarta will provide free 43 Legendary Burgers to the first 43 visitors as a symbol of its existence in the world for 43 years.


"Happy Birthday hard Rock Cafe Jakarta! On this anniversary event, they intend to give appreciation to those who have been faithful with them for this," said Bayon Alcoseba, General Manager of Hard Rock Café Jakarta. "Legendary Burger is one of his favorite meal and one of the main reasons people visit the Hard Rock Café around the world as well as in Jakarta. Therefore, on the 43rd Anniversary of the Hard Rock Café Jakarta will give Legendary Burger for free for the first 43 visitors."


The 657 square-meter cafe, which includes indoor seating for 145 guests, is located at Pacific Place Mall. 


The interior was classic yet comfy, you like sit around of legendary musician. Sometimes there's a band who accompany your lunch or dinner. I thought, this is one of the best place you can chill with.


Hard Rock Cafe Jakarta also carries on the Hard Rock tradition of presenting some of the most iconic memorabilia from legendary and contemporary musicians alike, including various accessories worn by Black Eyed Peas artists Fergie and Will.I.Am, a costume worn by Slash, Jon Bon Jovi’s guitar, pants worn by Shakira, autographed record of the late Donna Summer, and much more.  


And there, I just found my favourite one, Mr. Big! Mr. Big is an American rock group, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1988. The band is a quartet composed of Eric Martin (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitar), Billy Sheehan (bass guitar), and Pat Torpey (drums). The band is noted especially for their musicianship, and scored a number of hits.


On this day, there's a band who joined and sing songs of the famous legendary musicians. And on that day, they performed in the style of 70-80s. In addition, all the waiters and the event organizers are also using the same costume.

While enjoying the songs that sung by the band, this time we were invited to a special tasting menu of the Hard Rock Jakarta. Intrigued by what the menu will be served? Come follow me!

Hard Rock Nachos

Firstly came with such a snacks or light bites in American style! Yeah, it was Hard Rock Nachos (IDR 177.000), a fresh corn tortilla chips which is served with homemade queso, piled high and then topped with cheddar cheese and pinto beans, also served with sour cream, green onions, Pico de Gallo, jalapenos and rockers salsa. Surely, you'll amazed with the portion size!

Just another big portion, Jumbo Combo (IDR 189.000) that you can try five kinds of Hard Rock different appetizers in one big plate! Haha. It was Santa Fe Spring Rolls, Hickory-Smoked Chicken Wings, Onion Rings, Potato Skin and Tupelo Chicken Tenders.

Their patty made from the high quality of Angus beef, then grilled to medium well level, topped with seasoned turkey bacon, cheddar cheese, crisp onion ring, lettuce, tomato and pickles. And on this day, I'm out of luck, I got the patty on this burger was too dry, so I don't really enjoy it.

New York Strip Steak

New York Strip Steak (IDR 288.000), this is one of the highly prized cuts of beef. Hmm, ya the portion was big enough and served with garlic mashed potato, homemade gravy and fresh vegetables. Everything was good and well seasoning!

And also topped with chopped walnuts, chocolate sprinkles, fresh whipped cream and little-red cherry! Such a perfect combination, when the sweet ice cream meet the hot fudge chocolate brownie.
