An elevated classic

Hock Pocket, Tiger

The Hot Pocket is a household staple, filling kitchen freezers and children’s stomachs for decades. Tiger must have fond memories of the hand-held microwavable delicacy, as the Hock Pocket ($7) takes those familiar elements and elevates them. Diced smoked ham and melted gouda is wrapped tightly in a crispy puff pastry. But instead of artificial flavorings, the Hock Pocket is crunchy and oozes pungent, gooey cheese that nicely compliments the smoky ham. It’s a grown-up spin on a childhood classic and it works as an easy replacement to its highly-saturated counterpart. 722 K Street,
