Hogs Breath Cafe Saloon and Grill Central Park Mall Jakarta

July 14th, 2015. Finally, I came to Hogs Breath Cafe, Saloon and Grill at Central Park Mall. They invited me for their grand launching at the end of May but I couldn’t come. So when I came to Central Park, I decided to try this place.

Australia’s renowned Steakhouse, Hog’s Breath Café, in collaboration with PT. Indophoenix Global, has opened its first outlet in Jakarta since June 2014. Located in the breezy outdoor-facing area of Tribeca Park in Central Park Mall, Hog’s Breath Café Saloon & Grill Jakarta has been serving authentic western cuisine and beverages to its patrons whilst providing a fun casual dining atmosphere.

Let me show you around the place 🙂 It’s not very spacious, and even though they had 2 levels, but they haven’t use it. I went there with fellow foodies. We were having fun there 🙂 The cafe itself looked so cool. I felt like I was in some cool bar I saw in some movies or TV series. Cool, aight?

The Menu

Finger Food Combo 98k

A platter of potato skins, buffalo wings, crumbed chicken tenders, salt and pepper dusted calamari with lime sweet chilli sauce and our Hog’s Breath honey mustard.

I love the crumbed chicken tenders, potato skins and calamari. I didn’t like the buffalo wings. It’s a little bit spicy, and too dry. But overall, I love this finger food combo. You can eat this with friends. Especially the one who love to hang out with you for some time. And you can choose the sauces. They served it with chilli sauce and honey mustard sauce. You can choose which one you like.

Smoked Pork BBQ Ribs 178k [half rack]

Hog’s Style braised pork spare ribs basted in our very own Hickory Smoked Barbecue Sauce and served with curly fries or mash and seasonal vegetables or salad.

This is one of their signatures. The pork was very tender and juicy. I didn’t really like the additional sauce, so I ate without the sauce. I love the curly fries!! Really love it. The texture was perfect with just the right taste. Recommended!

Marinated, braised and char grilled to tender perfection and smothered in our special herb BBQ Sauce and served with fresh salad or vegetables and curly fries.

I tried this one a small bite. Tasted amazing with the herbs BBQ sauce. It’s perfectly tender too. I recommended this one for those who loves beef ribs. Ugh, those meat!!

Australian Lamb Shank 188k

Traditionally braised lamb fore-shanks served with creamy mash, steamed vegetables and basted with its own lamb gravy.

Funny thing, someone told me that it was pork knuckle! OMG! And I believed him. But, I smelled something that alert me, “It’s not pork! It’s not pork!” And, after I confirmed the owner, yes, it’s lamb!! Wow, finally, I can declare myself as a foodie hahahahahaha.. This lamb shank was delicious and amazingly tender! But, I still smelled a lamb’s aroma. A little bit. But, yeah, another recommendation from me.

This was the winner! I couldn’t stop eating this. I just couldn’t. And thank goodness, nobody knew. Hahahahaha. Or they pretended to not care? LOL. This steak was tender, juicy, addicting. I asked my friend to refill my plate all day long hahahaha.. The blue cheese dressing was.. hmmm.. tempting..

Calamari Prime Rib Steak 259k

Tender Prime Rib steak topped with crispy crumbed salt and pepper crumbed calamari rings and lime chilli sauce.

The Prime Rib was definitely tender. I didn’t have to explain anything, right? The calamari rings were well-seasoned. But I didn’t try the lime chilli sauce. Come on. Chilli. Not my favourite. So, I prefer this one without the sauce. 😛

Dessert

Key Lime Cheese Cake 55k

Creamy, Cheesy, tangy lime flavoured served with cream and ice cream.

Actually I didn’t like cheese cake. But this key lime cheese cake had a mild texture and light tangy taste. It’s creamy but still light. I ate and finished it in a jiffy, because everybody had already full. It’s the collaboration of sour and sweet. Perfect.
