Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki was established in October 15, 2012. It’s location is excellent, opposite to Stockmann Department store by Aleksi street. Dining room and bar are at the 2nd floor and shop at the 1st floor.
All restaurants must develop their operations in order to attract new customers and keep existing. Visited HRC in October 2016, when they had special vegetarian menu. Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki was celebrating Vegetarian Awareness Month by expanding its legendary menu offerings and introducing brand new limited-time meatless options.
For starters there were no vegan options available, so ordered only main courses.
Vegan main course was KEFTA BURGER A house made burger of potato, shiitakes, portabellas, balsamic glaze, barley, thyme and seasonings served on a burger bun with a sriracha hummus, arugula and tomato.
It is now easier to find vegetarian/vegan options in restaurants in the Helsinki area. It was a nice option having a vegan burger made from other ingredients than lentils or chick peas. The burger was juicy, and hummus was a good addition to the dressing.
Below is a picture of Vegetarian Menu. It could easily become part of the regular menu as they did a great job at putting the menu together.
Hard Rock Cafe chain is quite successful because of concept and food (if you do not dislike that kind of dishes). Service is quick and polite and always chance to practice english.
Once there was even Planet Hollywood in Helsinki, but global restaurant concept did not survive.
O’Learys has established restaurant in the capital area. Tries to serve similar food with sports concept. But unfortunately food is not at the level what HRC can offer
REVIEW: FOOD 4/5 – SERVICE 4-/5 – OVERALL GRADE 4/5
