Hog's Breath Cafe, Northbridge

For dinner I had the Garlic Mushroom Prime Rib (Traditional Cut $32.95 / Lite Cut $25.95) and it was full of saturated fat and so was everyone else's steaks. The place was dark and the steaks were covered in sauce so by the time you ate it you would get a mouth full of fat. 

However, the Chicken Parmigiana ($22.95) during lunch was not too bad (chicken breast schnitzel topped with an Italian style tomato sauce and shaved parmesan cheese, Hog Tail Fries and salad). The Hog Tail Fries goes well with sweet chilli and ranch dipping sauce. 

For dessert, the Strawberry Pavlova ($7.95) (filled with whipped cream and came with sliced strawberries, vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce) was really nice and light. The cocktails are not too bad but you can't order cocktails or alcohol unless you have a main meal which I think is a bit unreasonable. This is due to their licensing requirements and they will watch you like a hawk if you try to order alcohol without a main meal.

It's not called saturated fat dude, it's called marbling. The marbling gives the flavor. The prime rib steak in Hog's breath Cafe was one of the best and tender steak I have ever had.

Yes I agree that the fat that meat contains is called marbling so you are correct. The amount of fat in the steak is dependent on the grade and cut that you get. Therefore, the more fat in steaks scientifically means that the steak is more tender when it is marbled throughout the steak on an even basis. The main reason why my partner and I didn't like ours was because there were large white chunks of fat in our steaks we received and it wasn't on a nice even basis. Due to this I found it difficult to eat. I suggest that you try out the steaks at Must in Margaret River if you ever have the chance http://www.must.com.au/ as a comparison as I found that the steaks here were much more enjoyable.
