Review: Roctober Fest at Hard Rock Cafe

When you ask for bigger & better, head to Hard Rock Café

By now, everyone would know what Oktoberfest is all about and if you don’t you have been leaving under water. Ok, for the people who doesn’t know what Oktoberfest is, one last time - Oktoberfest is one of the largest Volksfest (People’s Fair) in the world held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-day festival running from late September to the first weekend in October with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. And it isn't surprising to know that Beer is the world's most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and is the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea. 

Now that you have my attention, just imagine what happens when you take two of the best things – American Rock ‘n’ Roll and Oktoberfest – and mix them together? Hehe, that’s easy isn’t it. You get ‘Rocktober Fest’. Get your imaginations rolling once again to an entire month full of high octane music, lip-smacking menu, variety of international beers, Shandy, beer cocktails and entertainment in the house only at the all-time favourite - Hard Rock Café.

So we started with our drinks and what a way to start the proceedings. I ordered for Maria Maria Cornorita Corona and what a visual treat it was. Don’t believe me? See it for yourself.

It is a cascade of Kingfisher beer into frozen margarita. I am not a regular drinker but boy oh boy, if this tastes so bloody brilliant, I don’t mind turning myself to a regular *wink wink*. Hats off to the team for the presentation of this drink, an absolute stunner.

Next, I tried Pomegranate Vodka Shandy. It is a cocktail with Vodka, pomegranate, lemonade & beer. This was another beauty but after riding high with Maria Maria, you wouldn’t want to indulge anything else.

There is plenty to munch on as well and goes well with these cocktails.

Carnival Feista – Fries: Cajun spice dusted crispy tangy chilli garlic crust fries topped with bbq spice rubbed hand pulled chicken & smoked chicken frank slices, served with tangy salsa & cheddar cheese sauce.

Saigon Fusion - Asian Roll: Asian bbq sub, flavour packed with grilled smoked chicken frank, crunchy asian bbq slaw, served with crisp chilli fries.

Italian Submarine - Tangy arabitta mayo stuffed char grilled smoked chicken frank,  chimi churi spiced onion peppers & topped with tangy pesto mayo, served with spicy chilli fries.

Windy City Sub Roll - Classic american smoked chicken frank, cocktail sauce & tangy mustard relish, served with crisp chilli fries.

Jamaican Hotty Submarine - Char grilled smoked chicken frank stuffed subroll, topped jemaicam spiced stir fried veg & tangy cajun bbq mayo, served with spicy chilli fries.

Mexi Cali Burger - Tangy smokey chicken patty with honey citrus mayo, topped with smoky relish, served with spicy chilli fries.

And to end the proceedings, a stunning dessert.

Verdict: 4/5
