Mon, 01 Hogust 2011

Hogust Starts Today!
Hogust is a month long celebration of the incredible, edible pig. Throughout the month, we will have a constant parade of pork specials. Our current specials are:
  • Slow Cooked Pork Belly Reuben Sandwich - Chef Kevin slow cooked the pork belly for 5 hours. Then he reduced the juices into a sauce for final cooking when ordered. I hear "pork belly" and I think unsmoked bacon and fatty. This pork belly is very lean, with most of the fat having been cooked off.
  • Gorgonzola Stuffed Figs wrapped in Riekers Double Smoked Bacon with truffle honey and fresh thyme. This is an appetizer sized dish. Four figs, covered with Riekers double smoked bacon with honey and fresh thyme. This one's a winner.
  • Beer Braised Schwieneshacken finished with high heat to crisp the outside. Authentic Bavarian pork knuckle, this dish is the definition of hog heaven (if you aren't a hog.
Chef Kevin has really embraced Hogust and is literally going whole hog. He has a head cheese scrapple in the works, made in house from a pork head.

And we have loads more to come. You could come in every day this month and literally not eat the same pork dish twice.

Quizzo on Tuesday As usual, Quizzo Lord Ryan will host Quizzo on Tuesday at 8:30pm. This is a great opportunity to share some Hogust dishes and play quizzo.

Pilsner Urquell Keep the Glass Night on Thursday. Starting at 6pm on Thursday, while supplies last, buy a Pilsner Urquell draft and keep the glass. This also is a great opportunity; share some Hogust dishes and walk out with a glass for your collection.
