Good place to bring kids

The kids eat free so we were there to check out the food. Spaghetti Bolognese (kid's meal) - strangely, the beef Bolognese was pretty dry and taste slightly burnt and a little hard too. Not the best tasting dish really. Burger & corn (kid's meal) - the burger is a cheese burger essentially and it comes with a cob of corn. Burger was ok and corn was nicely grilled. Macho Nachos - a generous plate of nachos with melted cheese and guacamole and salsa. Not the best I've had but ok for a $15 plate. Prime Steak - it's a very decent 200g cut that nicely grilled. I had mine with garlic mushrooms and those were good too. I asked mine as medium rare but I think it was a little more done than medium rare. As a steak house, I thought they should have gotten the done-ness right. What's BEST about this place is actually the play area they have set up. They even have a nanny to watch the kids. So the kids can have their meals and entertain themselves, while the adults can continue to enjoy their food and drinks leisurely and undisturbed. I may return, not so much for the food but more for the kids having a good time after their meals.

Good steak in historic, colonial surroundings

In short, food was not bad, surroundings at CHIJMES were fun, but the prices were a little steep.  Particularly recommend the steak, which Hog's Breath justifiably boast about.

Over prized chewy steak

The food was cold, the steak was chewy and far from medium rare. And all came to hefty prize. They don't even serve tab water for free.

Need more comfy seats

Made an online reservation via hungrygowhere apps. It's was easy n neat. U even get an email confirmation for it. 1st visit to Hog's Breath for a family dinner of 4. Ordered a salad, finger food combo, pasta, steak n a full slab of ribs for ~$150 after 15% discount for citibank card holders. + food were served fast! 5mins from order. + other than the lack of sauce for the mush potato sides, the food were nicely done. With good portioning. - skinny benches indoors were comfortable. Couldn't seat longer to enjoy the ambience n drinks...

Not a good choice of restaurant at CHIJMES

CHIJMES is very beautiful and we love dining at that area but Hog's Breath Cafe is not the right place to head to. The Chilli Prawn was too spicy and has too much coconut that you cannot taste any flavour from the prawn itself. Vivian and Crystal found the Fish and Chips and Seafood Mariana mediocre and not worth the price stated in the menu. More info and pictures at HERE!
