    Hog's Breath Cafe - Kalgoorlie

    So we decided to go out to lunch today and since I bagged MM's review of a place in Ubon (Grandpa House, Ubon Ratchatani)Grandpa House I thought I had better do a real review and include some happy snaps

    As the title suggests we went to Hog's Breath Cafe which those from Aus will know is a pretty famous Steak house which slow cooks its steaks.

    Not sure how long the one in Kalgoorlie has been around for but it seems to do a steady trade.





    Like all Hog's Breath Cafe's both the inside and outside is covered with all sorts memorabilia (didn't find any Thai number plates though )







    The menu covers most tastes Main Menu Page and my wifes has had several "girls night out" piss ups with the Hog's famous cocktails.

    The kids menu is great - A choice of several different dishes plus a drink and a coupla scoops of ice cream all for $8.95 Kids Menu.

    Fish n' chips (or for those kiwi's "fish n' chups)



    Upside Down Burger (no not really but for some reason my daughter decided that was the way to eat it)



    Rubber spoon - yummo



    The adults menu is pretty impressive too, of course I had a steak... Garlic Mushroom to be exact Prime Rib Steak Menu



    Have a guess which green I'm not really into



    While my wife enjoyed the Buffalo BBQ Chicken Wrap Burger's, Wraps & Sandwiches



    Overall it was a great lunch and nice to get out (as it had been ready not stop for the past two days)

    Now since the theme is pigs here's my rating out of five!

    Thanks Cimboc. I have to disagree with Lil on this. I reckon they have preserved the old pub as well as they could have and still made it a commercial enterprise that all can enjoy.

    Lovely kiddies too. How about those eyes on the little one? Bloody beautiful.

    3 questions:

    #1 Why does your lad have a "home detention monitor" on his wrist?

    #2 How did you de-activate it, to get him out of the house for the evening?

    #3 Surely, they have a Hooters in Kalgoorlie don't they?

    Gee talk about showing me up. Nice thread and good pics.

    Why didn't you finish your curly chips?

    Your gonna have to learn to like cucumber before you move over here because if you haven't already notice over here every single dish of thai food comes with cucumber and tomato.

    Looks like a nice family lunch to celebrate your birthday.

    Happy birthday mate!

    ^ Tosh. Good plain grub at a reasonable price. The one in Darwin does a roaring trade.

    Nice pix pity its junk kids tucker the one in Hamilton is always full of the type of folks that make Thailand all the more attractive Healthy slimline organic food is for monks and wimps! Pass the ketchup chef. JJ popularity has little to do with taste nor quality

    Wes moved the Hogs Breath out of Nana 17 years ago or something like that. In Pattaya now.

    Believe the first Hogs Breath was started years ago in Carmel Ca. by none other than Clint Eastwood.

    That does not bother me one bit. Reading his posts yesterday gave me a new perspective on the guy. Which one doesnt he believe you reckon? Wes of Nana Plaza fame? or Dirty Harry has a restaurant?

    I simply refered to the disappearance of HB from NP 17 years ago.

    I first came here 11 years ago and it was in there then and for some time after that also.
