## MENU INNOVATION HEADLINED BY AWARD-WINNING STEAK BURGERS!
Hard Rock Cafe Valencia is easy to find as it is just off Plaza Ayuntamiento, so it is as central as can be. If you are arriving from the main Valencia train station, it is literally across the road! A couple of the ‘24/7 Valencia’ team popped into Hard Rock Cafe Valencia for an early lunch with their new 2020 menu on a mellow Monday and a chance to check out the music memorabilia that adorns the walls as soon as you enter this impressive and very spacious bar & restaurant. We saw the legendary Madonna’s famous black corset on the wall! Rockers can check out Pretender Chrissie Hynde’s iconic Telecaster guitar as well as superstar Mick Jagger’s tour top. Others that stick in the memory were Rod Stewart’s stripy trousers from the early 70s & Joan Jett’s leather pants, as they call them in the States. We even came across Sting’s keyboard and the Adidas trainers of Robbie Williams! There are many more objects lining the walls on both floors, covering a good number of genres of music too…
24/7 Valencia: Could you tell us more about your new menu?
Hard Rock®: Hard Rock Cafe® Valencia launched the brand’s most extensive menu innovation in the company’s history with more than 20 new offerings. The Valencia Cafe’s new menu puts the spotlight on its lineup of all-new, award-winning Steak Burgers, headlined by the world’s first edible 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ that will benefit ‘Acción contra el Hambre’ .Steak Burgers aren’t the only items making their debut on Hard Rock Valencia’s new menu, which also includes Instagram-worthy Boozy Milkshakes, Sliders and Shareables that encourage adventure and exploration, allowing fans to curate their most flavorful playlist.
The star of the show, Hard Rock Cafe Valencia’s new and award-winning Steak Burgers, are created with a proprietary blend of 100 percent Certified Angus Beef® to produce the most flavorful burger possible.

- The 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ – The shining star of the lineup is this first-of-its-kind burger with bling. A Steak Burger topped with 24-Karat edible gold leaf with cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion.

- Double Decker Double Cheeseburger – A tribute to Hard Rock’s 1971 “Down Home Double Burger” and the iconic double decker buses synonymous to the brand’s London roots, this burger consists of two stacked Steak Burgers with American cheese, mayonnaise, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion.
- BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger – This Steak Burger is seasoned and seared with a signature spice blend, topped with house-made barbecue sauce, crispy shoestring onions, cheddar cheese, bacon, leaf lettuce and vine-ripened tomato.
