You may only have a few days left to do THIS

By Lauren – Gold Coast Mum Hubby and I recently escaped from spent two hours away from our four little ones to enjoy a ‘date night’ at the Hard Rock Café in Surfers Paradise.

As we arrived at the world-famous venue, we couldn’t help but notice one of the lights was out on the sign.


We had a good chuckle after discussing how fortunate it was that it was the letter “k” that was out of action, rather than the “R”...
If ya know what I’m saying?! ;-D
(I know, I know… Spending some alone time, without the children around, brought out the immature side, ha ha.)
Hubby and I were super excited to try out the vegetarian menu at Hard Rock.

The Hard Rock Café - known for its delicious American cuisine; especially burgers and salads - is celebrating Vegetarian Awareness Month by offering meatless options that include a variety of vegetarian burgers, wraps, salads and juices.

Hubby and I do love a good steak, but were absolutely won over by the variety of options available, how tasty they are and how filling! Who needs meat!?

We were lucky enough to sample the vegetarian offerings and were pleasantly surprised by (and have been back since, to order from) the vegetarian

Our favourites included:
* Fresh blend of Apple & Kale Juice

* Tomato Watermelon Salad
Fresh watermelon tossed with arugula, roma tomatoes, red onion and feta in a lime vinaigrette.

* Black Bean Wrap
Black beans with brown rice, red onion, peppers, corn, cilantro, tomatoes, jalapeño, garlic, honey and spices with grilled tofu and a tofu lime and garlic crema.

* Quinoa burger
A house made patty of quinoa, red onion, portabello mushroom, eggs, cheddar, pecan, barley, soy sauce, and breadcrumbs, topped with hummus, arugula, tomato and grilled red onion.

Get in mah belllly! Yum!
Our tastebuds were seriously tantalized!
Fantastic food flavours and great service made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

And, as Gold Coast locals, gave us another must-visit venue to visit when we can, and to recommend to family, friends and tourists.
Also a great option for Gold Coast locals and visitors looking for great vegetarian food, or a vegetarian restaurant.
The vegetarian menu, on offer at the Surfers Paradise and Sydney Hard Rock Cafes have been a huge hit according to bosses. There’s even talk of the vegetarian menu being rolled out permanently.
 “With an international movement toward a more plant-based diet, the demand for vegetarian dining has continued to grow,” said Antonio Bautista, Senior Vice President of Franchise Operations for Hard Rock International.
“Hard Rock Cafe drew inspiration from global and regional cuisine to develop menu items vegetarians and meat lovers alike will enjoy.”

The new menu items honour Vegetarian Awareness Month (October), which was designed to spread awareness of vegetarianism and the benefits of a meat-free diet. What began as World Vegetarian Day has blossomed into a month-long celebration of vegetarianism that involves educational events and festivities.

Be sure to check out Hard Rock Cafe in Sydney or Surfers Paradise to try out the new options for yourself.
