Hog’s Breath Cafe…

“What is life but one grand adventure…”

If you are fearless and is open into trying anything new to you, specifically those that are new to your taste, which I tried learning when I used to stick with my own favorites. Though, gone are those days, since blogging requires, trying out new things. Most of the time.

I have been craving for pizza more often than usual for the past days. My cheaper doze of S&R pizzas didn’t normally occur at work due to my being lazy to cross and walk and fall in line since it is often peak at S&R Shaw during lunch-time. They have been a favorite place for quick lunches nowadays.

Upon seeing “Hog’s Breath cafe” in Alabang, it’s a steakhouse, and we had this feeling right away that this could be a restaurant from another country who opted to branch out here in the Philippines.

Zomato..happy? sad? happy! =)

And as we were checking on the menu. Surely it is. I inquired from this very courteous attendant (Trained for Hogspitality) about their origin, and yes, the original branch is in Australia. I immediately asked her, d’you have pizzas? And she replied “Oh sure, we have!” and showed us the page where the pizzas are listed. And we entered their entrance right away.

A few hints where indeed pretty obvious when our orders arrived because we can smell it, is that it is spicy. We forget to request doing it mild and light though I have my foodie buddy to enjoy it. Her palate enjoys the combination of all that there is: sweet, sour, salty and yes, spicy finish.

It’s just half past 4pm, it’s still snack-time, so we only had their deep-fried potato skins which happens to be a delight to the eyes. It comes with chili con carne fillings and topped with previously I thought were ricotta cheese but they’re sour cream, with chives and cheese too. It comes with crispy vegees (Romaine lettuce & shaved carrots) in light vinaigrette. Pretty presentation.

Deep-fried potato skins…

We were tempted to try their nachos, however, it only comes in a very big size, which according to the attendants is good for 2-3 persons. I guess we will just come back for it some other time. We are eyeing to dine in one of these restaurants in the evening to personally see the beauty of the garden which Filinvest came up with some months ago. Or probably, choose a day with an event as they also have their amphitheater fronting this new block.

Then, we had pizza, the one that they recommended. They’re best seller. Boss hogs Supreme.

Boss’ hogs supreme…

This one struck us as very spicy too. I didn’t know that Aussies loved spicy food. The menu featured several dishes that has this particular flavor. It matches best my buddy’s taste. And not much with me since my threshold for them is kinda low. Eversince. While the dough is chewy and we later learned that they personally prepare their pizza doughs.

The owner collected these plates from Australia.

And framed typographys too..

I again searched for Stella Artois, and yes, again, they run out of stock. Instead, they offered the non-alcoholic mojito.

The cumin flavor is distinct (often present in Mexican cuisines) both in the pizza and potato skins, but I had to complement the dough. Nothing beats home-made doughs. =)

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
