Hogs Australia’s Steakhouse

Hogs Parramatta :

Hello guys, hows Mondays treating you all? Today i would like to share on my first experience dined at Hogs.

It was said way back in 1989 the first Hogs was opened in Airlie Beach in North Queensland (pretty long time ago). They also claimed for the passions for good food and selections of the finest and fresh produced for the customers. Thus, for 29th years this year they have already runs more than 80 restaurants.

Upon entering the restaurant, I remembered the decor in HRC, chillis as well as Bubba Gum! Classy!

We ordered Lychee mocktail and cappuccino. I really love these drinks – exceptional.

For the food I ordered steak and garlic prawns ( Char-grilled sirloin steak topped with garlic prawns and honey mustard sauce + fresh vegetables + Hog Tail Fries). I rate this meal as 8/10 as the steak is a bit chewy. The other menu my partner choose is beacon beef burger + Hog Tails Fries. Its tasty too.

Overall we think that this is a good place to have lunch and dinner. There’s so much crowd at 8pm and its better to get here early as the waiting after ordering is pretty long.

There’s a lunch treat $9.90 on weekdays as well as you may see in the photo below. You may dine here and wont break your pocket!

Thanks for reading. Maybe a comment on where else you guys love to have a nice dinner?

 

Korean BBQ at Jang Ta Bal

Had charcoal bbq at Jang Ta Bal at Strathfield last week. The place is pack and a bit secluded. The service is quick but you have to wait for 10 mins for a table a there’s crowd at dinner time.

We ordered the mix meat set consists of pork, chicken and wagyu. I love the wagyu; as always.

Its not fast to cook with charcoal so you have to be a little bit more patient. Cook the thicker meat in the middle of the grill as the heat is stronger.

Overall my rate for the food here is 5/10. Wont be coming back.

 

The Heritage Bakery – Milton

The Heritage Bakery – On our way to Ulladulla, we saw this bakery on a very old building. It was right next to the traffic light and many people were seen having a great time in the bakery’s cafe’s. Thus, i decided we must drop by to see if there is any good in there.

This Bakery was known to be established in 2003 in a town called Milton; one of the oldest historical building of the region. I guess it must have been since the 1870 as in the building photo.

This bakery does not accept cash transaction. So if you have to cards, you wont be able to make a purchase. I do love the way they does this in a very ancient building though – very advanced if i may say; despite on how this building look =).

Another interesting thing is if you bring your own cup, you get 50% off for the coffee. We didn’t buy any coffee at the time.

Bought these ( empty burger buns, Heritage Steak Pie and no name cake). The Meat pie is one of the best I’ve tried so far apart from the home made sold in Jindabyne’s.

This cake is very delicious. Im sure there is a secret ingredients. The layers was top in cream (most likely custard) and the hard icing top is the only sweet thing on it. When you bite, make sure to bite from top to bottom, the only way to get the full taste! Awesome one!

3.2 The surrounding of Universal Studio Singapore

As we all know Resorts World is everywhere In Malaysia, Philippine and also in SG.

3.3 Beach Station, Sentosa Island

As we walk we found a monorail station not far from USS gate and its free ride since its still new. We walked towards the crowds and wait for the monorail and head to Palawan Beach at the very end of the station.

Monorail Station – Beach Station

It was hot and humid. After a while we start to sweat and sticky. It was a long walk and yeah this one is unexpected.

We finally reached the Palawan Beach in the end and there’s many people chilling here, having picnics with friends and families and some just taking a swim . Impressive man made islands and beaches.

Most of the toilets along the beach is still under constructions this time around so if you need a loo you have to come to Kidzania there’s public toilet here.

Its so much fun seeing everyone learning to fly in that large tube Its definitely a must try if you have yet to eat something because i think the pressure might make you vomit if you do this with a full stomach.

Please plan your budget ahead if you wanna do this. Shopping  earlier days makes us put this in the wish list . *wink*

There’s also few nice rides here (which we don’t expect to bump into), as well =(. Due to time constraint we keep walking to see what else they offer  (after the photos below). So much of a “Singapore is not so big to finish in 2 days” – said my partner as this part of the island was still in construction many many years ago when he came. Now we are chasing time to explore (@@).

We walked to the end of the beach and found Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resorts. From this point we walk along Imbiah Walk then found Siloso Point Bus Stop. The day is getting dark and we followed everyone else taking the bus. To our surprised we were sent to VivoCity Mall at the Harbour Front. Now, thats the catch. Supposedly this free ride is for the resorts guest but we accidentally went with it and went out of Sentosa. Well, we didn’t managed to visit The Merlion because we thought we have enough time to come back there by Monorail but now we are out of the Island, perhaps we can go back again next time? Our innocent bought us the free ride though. I guess my mission to take photo with the “Merlion” statue is gone for the second time. Yesterday at the Marina Bay Sand I didn’t managed as well because it’s late and “The Merlion” on the bay front already been switched off, no lights & no water coming out of its mouth =((. Someday!!! Sighhhh….

3.4 VivoCity Mall

So yeah, this a a good sign to be able to visit this mall out of the plan, at least going into the air conditioned again after hours of walking. Entering the mall and saw the phone charging station and since my phone is on the low bat I went straight to it. Its very easy to operate this thing just put any finger you like as it require a finger print to open & unlock, and its foc.

This mall is pretty descent with a train station attached to it make it easy for anyone coming over. Perhaps most tourist here is from Sentosa Resorts!
