Headed to Hog's Breath Cafe at Chijmes to celebrate the Best Friend's 21st birthday. It was a really pleasant gathering with the girls, and we spent the whole night eating and chatting away.
Here's what we had that night:
The Birthday Girl's Atlantic Salmon
, marinated with a lime hollandaise sauce:
Sf's Jamaican Chicken, chicken breasts marinated in Caribbean seasoning, grilled and served over seasoned rice and finally topped with a warm creamy mango sauce. She had a (huge) baked potato for her side:
Here's ph's Chicken Dijonnaise, marinated grilled chicken breasts topped with avocado and smothered with creamy Dijon mustard sauce:
And this is bimbo's Boss Hog Double Burger, consisting of (thick) double beef , double cheese, tomato, onion, beetroot, BBQ sauce and seared with Hog's Breath Blacken seasoning:
Here comes my Hawaiian Hickory Chicken Burger! Look at how big the two chicken breasts are:
The chicken breasts are basted with hickory smoked sauce, cheese, beetroot, tomato, pineapple and onion rings. I quite liked the sauce as it wasn't the normal BBQ sauce and there was a really tangy taste to it. I kind of expected the chicken breasts to be pretty hard to chew on, but the texture was just right.
One side of the burger was served with the pineapple and onion rings, with tomato and beetroot while the other side of the burger was slammed with the two huge chicken breasts and cheese. And the Hog Tail fries I had for my side were not too bad as well. The entire dish doesn't exactly scream fantastic but it's value for money I guess, considering the really huge portion. I couldn't finish one entire chicken breast and still had some curly fries left over.
I know I shouldn't be wasting food during such bad times when there's a constant rise in food prices but the portion was really way too big. The other girls couldn't finish their foods too!
I know we are such ironic people, said we were too full from the main dishes but we still went ahead and ordered one of their desserts, the Mississippi Mud Cake. We just couldn't resist the chocolatey goodness:
The super dark mud cake was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, with chocolate sauce drizzled all over. The cake was slightly warmed and it tasted superb with the ice cream. It was a dense and dark chocolate cake, definitely THE cake for all chocolate lovers. It ain't too sweet (which we liked) and the whole combination of the cake with ice cream and chocolate sauce was to die for.
This was the pretty birthday cake we got for the Best Friend:
And here's the happy Birthday Girl:
After all the eating, we went out and walked around, snapping shots here and there:
Lastly, here's all five of us:
To the Best Friend: I hope you had enjoyed yourself and like what we've got for you. Cheers to our 13 years long of friendship! :)
