It was a marketing promotion that attracted me and decided to dine at Hog's Breath. Not that I hadn't heard of Hog's Breath Café prior to that, but you know when there's so many explosion of new malls with new restaurants and cafes out there, it's a little difficult to keep up.On deal.com.sg, it was a 50% discounted deal, price of $15 for $30 vouchers at Hog's. That made me purchased two pieces, which means we had a total of $60 spending power. The moment I hit ‘purchase’, I started to look forw
On deal.com.sg, it was a 50% discounted deal, price of $15 for $30 vouchers at Hog's. That made me purchased two pieces, which means we had a total of $60 spending power. The moment I hit ‘purchase’, I started to look forward and the visit wasn't a letdown.
It was just last Saturday. We had a knowledgeable, helpful and attentive waitress who greeted us promptly upon arrival. We did make a reservation though but turned out to be unnecessary after all. I'm really upset to say that it was just my boyfriend and I, with another caucasian couple prolly in their late 30s, to the entire restaurant that night. Such quietness on a Saturday night just wasn't meant to be.
Upon seated, the same waitress kindly informed us about some changes in the menu and that the kitchen had ran out of mashed potatoes if we did intend to get some, but we didn't anyway. I really liked the fact that she took such initiative. We wanted to use up all $60 and at the same time, try an appetizer, a main and a dessert, so we came to a decision to share a Buffalo Wings, Calamari Prime Rib Steak and Mississippi Mud Cake respectively.
The Buffalo Wings was really such a signature. Hot and crispy chicken wings/drums with vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and sizzling butter. The wonderful side blue cheese made it better with every dip.
The Calamari Prime Rib Steak wasn't as good as expected though. It was a generous portion that also came with 2 sides, we choose grilled vegetables and curly fries. Enough for 2 in not-so-hungry mood. The beef was tender and chewy but apparently didn't have any taste nor juice, strange combination I know, I thought it could be pan-fried. Thank god for the blue cheese and burmese sauce($1.50) that made it a lot better. For the calamari and curly fries, they were crispy to an extent but clearly undercooked as the color of both were deep pale. Grilled vegetables were yummy.
The Mississippi Mud Cake was basically the highlight of my night.. Have I mentioned how much I love my desserts? A large stack(in both height and width) of brownie cake that was drowning in chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a scoop of solid vanilla ice-cream. Garnished with a sliced strawberry on top. Chocolate-related desserts will always have my attention.
I can’t say more how much it was really worth the deal. Such lovely dinner for only $30, then again I’m not sure what my take will be if it wasn’t for the vouchers.
