Looking for a fun time with friends? Hard Rock Cafe in Dubai is a place that never disappoints when it comes to good food and music. Comfortable seating, cool ambience and good vibes describe this venue. With over 2700 sq meters of space, live stage, entire month of different artists, outdoor terrace and VIP function rooms, this place is a must-go if you are in Dubai.
Located just next to Marks & Spencer in Dubai Festival City, the restaurant opens it doors daily at 12 pm until 2 am. I visited this place with my friends and the evening turned out to be nothing less than perfect.
While everything on their menu is finger licking good, we ordered Chicken Wings, Grilled Chicken Arugula Salad, Penne Arrabbiata Pasta, Barbeque Chicken and Java Lava Burger. Speaking of chicken wings, there are very few places in the city that do it right and Hard Rock is one such place. Tender on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside combined with their signature smoky sauce and blue cheese dressing, one cannot stop eating.
Penne Arrabbiata was cooked to perfection. I always find places where they over-boil the pasta but here they kept it just the Italian way, minutely uncooked. The sauce was good but for me it was little less spicy. Garlic toast was done well. Coming to the Barbecue chicken, it was moist on the inside, had a pleasantly strong barbecue flavor that made the dish a perfect blend with our hops.
Finally the Java Lava Burger – something that I haven’t seen, heard or tasted before. I was a little apprehensive about the espresso rub but what can one say when all the ingredients just mix well and create a party in your mouth! The fries served along with the burger were super hot, fresh and crisp, beautifully complementing the dish.
I would visit the place again to try rest of their menu and hope you would have a great time out as well. Hard Rock Cafe for me get an overall rating:
