I’ve been absolutely dying to try the food at Hogwurst since seeing a post they shared on Facebook of one of their smoked, pork mountain delights and someone on my friends list shared it. I added them straight away and spent the next half hour dribbling over my keyboard at the creative geniuses behind the kitchen with not only their hotdog specials but the cakes on offer looking amazeballs too! They also happened to do macarons, which i also have a slight obsession with.
Hogwurst is a coffee shop and cafe aimed at students with it being smack in the middle of student central on North Road amongst the student halls of residents around the corner from the Aston Martin garage on the way into Cardiff Town Centre so the prices are pretty reasonable anyway. I don’t go to Cardiff as often as I used to and if I do i rarely drive and catch the train so I haven’t managed to try the sausages but I did park up opposite in the car park of the Blackweir Tavern to see what sugary coated goodness they had on offer that day on my way home from eating my own bodyweight in beef at Got Beef.
I was bitterly disappointed though from seeing the cakes they had been churning out and posting on Facebook around the time as they only had two macarons left but it was late afternoon and it was midweek so i had to make do with a takeaway for the drive home.
The guys have even created a burger dessert made out of macaron complete with sesame seeded bun now how cool is that! I think I need to sample the cakes on a weekend and early before they all go the next time i’m passing the cafe.
