Another Birthday At Hoggies

Where else to celebrate my Birthday this year?  Hogs Breath Cafe of course.  Back to Carindale again where we seem to have our own booth.  For the last 3 visits, we have been seated at the same location.  Must be perk that goes with writing a HOG BLOG :)

 Sammy went with her favorite, the Byron Bay Chilli and I went with an old favorite, the Smoked Hickory.  Both are 18 hour steaks cooked to perfection! 
And to complete the night, a HUGE slice of their famous Mud Cake.  

A massive thank you to the staff at the Carindale Store for making my birthday this year special.

A Happy Valentines Day and 3 Years On

3 years ago [February 14, 2009], I took Samantha out to dinner at the Hogs Breath Cafe at Carindale for our first date. Three years on and we decided we should celebrate where it all began...with the "piglets" in tow :)

Our Gift from Hogs Breath Cafe
I would to thank Kirk [manager] and his friendly staff for not only their awesome service, but for arranging this very special gift on arrival. Once I said my name, the person on the reception announced "the Techers are here" and when we were brought to our table, we found these glasses and bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us. It was totally unexpected and it really made us feel special, so again, thank you Kirk and your staff for arranging this gift and making our special night even better.

Our Mains
I went my usual "El Grandi" and Sammy went her favorite, the "Byron Bay Chilli" Prime Rib [18 hour] Steak. Once again, both cooked to perfection :)

And then onto...


And for dessert, what else if not the famous Mississippi Mud?

Sammy's V-Day Gift
And this year, instead of roses [I did buy her a Singapore Orchid and some chocolates], I bought Sammy a new charm [the hippo on the right] for her new Pandora bracelet.
