Hoggies at Port Douglas

We recently celebrated Sammy's birthday at Hogs Breath, Port Douglas [far north QLD]. Given it was a part of our holiday, we decided to stay a while and take in the local scenes - along with an awesome 18 hour steak. I would like to thank John [Manager] for his amazing service. I'd have to say that out of all the dinning experiences at Hoggies over the years, no one has come as close to the level of service. I know Hog's breath head office is now aware of this blog and it seems to have paid off as we got treated like celebrities from our arrival including a special visit from the Hogstar himself.

Fried Cheese!
For starters we had fried cheese sticks. These are scrumptious and because they are still in a gel state, are very hot.

Byron Bay Chilli Prime Rib

Our mains were, naturally, were 18 hour prime ribs. I decided on the simple smoked hickory with mash and vegies and Birthday Girl Sammy had a Byron Bay Chilli prime rib. My steak was cooked to perfection. In the past, I have had to order the steak "rare" to get the meat cooked to the way I like it. In this case, the steak came out medium rare and was perfect.

And to top off the night, MUD CAKE! This is not the standard birthday size cake. It was HUGE!
Sammy's new favorite drink
The Birthday Girl was allowed to have what ever she wanted, so a cocktail it was - for starters :)

The main street of Port Douglas reminded me of Noosa, just a bit warmer in December. The Cafe is located near the Marina Marage, a short walk from the main street, so for any Hog's Breath fans holidaying up in Port Douglas, do yourself a flavour favor and visit the local Hog's Breath and say HI to John and his friendly staff.
