I used to pass by Hog and Rocks everyday when I used to work at Lazy Bear since it was literally right across the street from my old work.
I came here for Saturday brunch since all the popular spots were packed in the city or you had to wait a ridiculous amount of time to get in somewhere. Hog and Rocks serves typical breakfast items such as eggs benedict as well as some fun twists on classics.
We started with $1 hammersely oysters. These were meaty and creamy but not as delicious as kumamoto, kusshi, or shigoku oysters.
We got half and half order of egg yolk glazed and spiced fries. Both tasty but nothing spectacular.
The duck confit French toast was tasty but lacked a little something. The duck confit was cooked well, nicely tender, and the addition of tart sweet blackberries was a great compliment. Also the French toast was soaked in almond milk and had a dusting of cinnamon.
The donuts had pieces of ham inside but were slightly on the denser side. However I liked the flavor of the donuts with the melted Swiss cheese and nectarine jam.
I liked the atmosphere and vibe of Hog and Rocks, perfect for a group of friends to get drinks and food. However, the food was nothing that blew me away, just decent, so my rating is a 7/10.
