Flying Pig Cafe, Little Tokyo


Category : ,

The Flying Pig Cafe opened its doors in Summer 2011, to much anticipation from food truck followers. The Flying Pig Truck currently has a successful run serving pan-Asian fusion food to pork lovers. We visited the restaurant in Little Tokyo within the first two weeks of its grand opening.

 Kakuni - pork belly on brown rice. It has similar flavors to Filipino pork adobo. I thought the pork could be more tender, but otherwise, it was an "okay" dish. Definitely overpriced, though.

Duruchigi - marinated spicy pork with brown rice, served in a skillet. I thought this dish was definitely more flavorful than the Kakuni, and certainly packs more punch.

I really love the Flying Pig Truck - the pork belly bun is awesome, practically to die for. But I find the new restaurant a little lacking, with super loud music, small portions and high bills. I'm hoping that as time goes by, the restaurant would find more balance.
