Artsy Comfort Food: European comfort food meets street art at Flying Pig Bistro, which has joined the string of boutique eateries up on High Street in Sai Ying Pun.
Look & Feel: The edgy look and feel at Flying Pig Bistro is thanks in part to Hong Kong-based artist Malcolm Golding who went for raw design elements, such as furniture made from recycled pallets, a big broken mirror, nostalgic photos and street art murals.
On the Menu: At its heart, Flying Pig Bistro aims to please those looking for a taste of Europe — and lots of its namesake beast, naturally. A menu of pork knuckle, suckling pig and pork chops should win you over if the awesome artwork doesn’t do the job first. Other classics include chicken schnitzel, lamb Wellington, bangers and mash, and of course the glorious Eton Mess.
Great For: Catch-ups with friends, homesick expats, indulgent dinners.
FYI: Flying Pig is from the same folks behind French hangouts like Pastis, Le Boudoir, Comptoir and Metropolitain.
