We were in Causeway Bay trying to figure out a place to grab a bite for dinner when Hello Kitty suggested that we check out The Fat Pig by Tom Aikens. It's the latest venture from my friends at the Press Room Group, replacing SML which occupied the same space. This was, of course, a great idea - since I was salivating over a picture of pig trotter on toast from this place just days ago.
The menu was relatively compact, and of course pretty much all pork. We decided to order a few small plates but ended up caving in to the lure of a larger main dish.
But I start off with a drink. Hello Kitty and I have a running joke about how every single waitstaff at restaurants and bars always deliver the wrong drinks to the two of us. I would always get the alcoholic drink that the staff assumed guys would order - like beer, for example, which I actually don't like - when in reality they are her drinks. She would always get served the girlie drinks, but inevitably I am the one who orders them...
what I've had at The
A pretty satisfying meal, and I still love the concept of a nose-to-tail menu... as the sign says: "Leave no part behind". On my next visit I'd definitely want to try to fried pig's tail, fried pig's ears, the jowl... and of course the belly.
