I wanted to come to Hog Shack Cook House Richmond for a while now. I pass this place by on multiple occasions when I head to Blue Canoe and Timothy’s in Steveston, Richmond. Their patio/open space is quite large for you to enjoy some full on sunshine! But something would always steer me away…. Perhaps this is because I don’t usually see a crowd. Early warning signs?
Finally I came here with some old UBC friends to catch up on life. It was 7pm and we were starving. Hog Shack Cook House Richmond was quite for a Thursday night and we were quickly seated, it took at least 15 mins before we got some water.
We shared between ourselves. There was no way I would be able to own up to a whole entrée myself. We waited a long time before any food came… The food was alright, regular, mediocre, nothing worth waiting for so long… 30-40 mins later…
PULLED PORK PANCAKES $13: After having an orgasmic experience at Red Wagon, I often wondered who could replicate the same fantasy, if not better it. I wanted Hog Shack to wow me, salivate me and charm its way into my stomach. But the 3 Savoury corn and scallion pancakes, served with Bourbon bacon maple syrup didn’t do the trick. The pancakes weren’t as fluffy or buttery as I imagined. Although the pulled pork was soft and delicious it needed more seasoning. For now, I will remain monogamous to Red Wagon.
CHILI CHEESE FRIES $9: A meal on its own. The double fried fries topped with their house chili, diced onions, cheese and jalepeno peppers.
HOG SHACK ST. LOUIS STYLE SIDE RIBS 1/2 rack: $17 / Full: $24: Pork side ribs, which is meatier than the back ribs. The meat did not fall of the bones but it was pretty tasty. We ordered yam fries and sautéed veggies as our sides. The medley of zucchinis, button mushrooms, carrots were soft, juicy and seasoned.
We could not finish everything and we were on a protein – carb overload. We waited again (for a good while) to pay. I’m in no hurry to return to this place. Was it just us or did you have similar experiences here?
