Dinner at the Hoghouse Brewing Company

Saturday 10th June 2017 at 19h00
Unit 4 Technosquare. 42 Morningside Rd, Ndabeni, Cape Town. There is secure parking in Technosquare.

The Hoghouse at Ndabeni was the recipient of the first ever Everyday Eatery ‘Wildcard Award’ at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries Awards 2016.

The menu is based on ‘low and slow’ style smoked meats, cooked over several hours, and they are served with a variety of side dishes. Meat is sourced from local suppliers who emphasize sustainable practice to bring you the very best quality, best tasting, free roaming, pasture-raised meat available.

There is a busy, vibrant atmosphere, but we will be seated upstairs, and a little removed from the hustle and bustle. The manager will speak to us regarding the specialities served by the Hoghouse.

Hoghouse Ales on tap and a selection of small batch wines are available by the glass or bottle. Do go to the website for more information at www.hhbc.co.za.

THE SET MENU WILL BE SERVED ON SHARED PLATTERS TO THE TABLES.
