Hog’s Breath Cafe has opened its doors to Davao last December 10,2012, coined as Australia’s home-grown steakhouse. It has opened its first branch in the Philippines which is located at SM Lanang Premiere. It has 80 branches around Australia & a few branches in New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Papua New Guinea & Vietnam.Since the resto was really not open to the public during the pre-tasting, it was exclusive to the media and bloggers that day. We had a tour on what the restaurant had during the event.
The restaurant is spacious, in fact, its Hog’s breath’s biggest branch. They had a function room & a bar to serve people who are on meetings or special occassions. There where two menus to choose from during the pre-tasting event. We chose the Menu B. We were given two servings per order for our group to share.
Here are what we had during the Pre-tasting event:
Buffalo Wings- Chicken wings on buffalo sauce and Bleu cheese dip
Salmon Nicoise Salad– Pan-seared salad on a bed of salad greens accompanied with chunks of potatoes, cherry tomatoes and drizzles of Hogs breath Italian Viniagrette. One of my fave since it has salmon 🙂
Smoked Pork BBQ Ribs– half slab of baby back ribs in barbeque sauce with twister fries on the side. Its one of the house specialty.
Natural Prime Rib Steak (200g) Must try!– a juicy Australian beef steak which was cooked medium well with mashed potatoes, veggies & corn. This one of the highlight of the meal we had during the pre-tasting.
Tomato Bruschetta- bruschetta with tomatoes on garlic bread.
Salt & Pepper Calamari– fresh squid fried in special breading marinated in salt & pepper. one of my fave during the pre-tasting
Seafood Marinara.. Must try!– pasta with seafoods in red sauce.
Food trip won’t be complete without trying their desserts & specialty drinks. Here are what we had for desserts:
For the drinks, we had Frozen Mixed Berries which is a mix of Sorbet, strawberry, raspberries & Apple Juice.. its a MUST Try! Mango– a mix of Mango & Apple juice & Tropical– Strawberries, Mango, Banana & Fruit juice mixed into a smoothie. The drinks they serve were refreshing.. perfect for our food trip. (from left-right)
Mississippi Mud Cake– its chocolate cake with a cup of ice cream. for the chocolate lover who loves the mix of vanilla & chocolate cake. I instantly like this after the first taste.
Banana Split– Banana cut into half with three scoops of ice cream, its something ice cream lovers would love.
Apple Crumble– Home style apple crumble w/ caramel sauce. Its one of my favorite among the three desserts we had during the event.
Its always been fun to try new restaurant to gain dining experience, with this resto, you will surely enjoy not just the sumptuous food, but you will also love hanging out on their cozy place plus good service.
