I finally (I know I say that a lot) got around to trying the fine cuisine at the pig joint in the heart of Yaletown. It was worth it. Open for only a handful of weeks, the place is already stacking up a decent dining reputation.
I went with the red wine braised short rib and bone marrow mash potatoes (very top) and it was delightfully scrumptious. I ate it up.
The rib was so soft and tender, right off the bone onto my fork with no knife necessary. The other recommended dish was the pan seared Queen Charlotte halibut which looked delicious as well (bottom right).
If you think that (above) looks like a couple of tomato steaks, you’d be correct. It was pretty classy and intriguing served with buffalo mozzarella and the fixings.
The cured meat spread (top) were also ample. However, there lobster and prawn risotto was incredibly creamy and tasty. It was damn good. Their caesars were also quite refreshing.
Hands down, the highlight of the night was the insanely good housemade cone drumstick ice cream dessert. Oh my, so good. The mix of vanilla and chocolate ice cream mixed with pistachio and chocolate sauce was mighty tasty. I loved it.
I’d definitely like to come back and hit the spot again to try the adventurous but simple and delicious menu. I say drop by and check it out.
