Hog's Breath in Geelong: a vegetarian's experience
website describes as "themed licensed restaurants". My visit to the Geelong franchise was my first encounter with the Hog's Breath. The restaurant is quite large - great for a big group - with lots of fun Aussie memorabilia about. (I wonder if the Ford sign will stay once the company leaves Geelong!) Thee were quite a few other groups there despite the empty chairs photo above. As the name suggests, it is a meat lover's dream. Just check out the menu that my nephew, the birthday boy, holds in the below photo.
online menu I was relieved to find a few vegetarian options. The "sensational salads" were impressive. Two were vegetarian. I also could have ordered two pasta dishes, an avocado and mushroom wrap. And quite a few of the appetisers and a lot of sides were vegetarian too.
My dad ordered Grandma's Trifle Sundae: vanilla and strawberry ice cream layered with swiss roll, vanilla custard, strawberry jelly, whipped cream and toasted coconut. I confess I don't remember if I had a taste. (The chocolate cake was dominating my taste buds.) I know my dad enjoyed it.
Despite Hog's Breath not being my sort of restaurant, I had a good night. The staff were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed something different for dinner with lots of vegies and was pleased that there are quite a few vegetarian options. And it was good and satisfying food. Most importantly, I had a lovely night with the family.
