It is not even a week since Hard Rock Cafe opened in Chennai, and already people are raving about it on social networking sites. So I wanted to check out this place. It is located in Phoenix Market City in Velachery. The restaurant/cafe is actually on the second floor, but the Hard Rock Shop is on the first floor. Overall, the place looked very neatly done. We were welcomed with a very pleasant smile and the waiter politely introduced himself.
I went along with my 8-year old son. 🙂 Yeah ! I knew it earlier that this place doesn’t serve beer/liquor :O !!! Well, at least as of now, that’s the position. Looks like they are doing something about license and stuff, so hopefully at least we’ll get beer in the future. *fingers crossed*
We went around evening and just wanted some short-eats and something to drink. We looked at the pictures on the menu card and ordered the drink that looked most fancy of all in a nice shapely glass, for my son. I ordered a Mojito (without the bacardi, of course). The waiter suggested a pita bread with hummus served with Moroccan cottage cheese and spinach and I ordered a Tuple Chicken Strips, or something that sounded like it. Since we were just two, we ordered half portions. I should say the portions were generous. The food was very tasty and we loved all that we ordered.
A slightly expensive place, well-worth the food, ambience and the ‘international’ tag. I saw at least a couple of non-Indian families enjoying their meal and a few others enquiring with the information desk in the shopping mall, where this restaurant was located. For the music lovers, there’s no better place than this.
