Flying Pig Truck Mislead To Believe Porn was "Romantic" Film

New, 2 comments

Food trucks + porn = food porn and somehow the two have gotten mixed up in an adult film staring Ron Jeremy and the likeness of our very own Flying Pig truck, though in the "movie" the vehicle is called The Flying Pink Pig. Of course the first question was whether Flying Pig owners consented to this, could they possibly? According to proprietor and chef Joe Kim, "I was told by my ex-employee that the shooting was about the romantic movie. I never spoke with them and was just misled by wrong info. I need to discuss this matter with my lawyer asap. Hopefully I can find a way to minimize the damage on our reputation." Unfortunately, this whole debacle hits at quite the inopportune time since Kim is preparing to open his first brick and mortar in Little Tokyo on 2nd and Central called Flying Pig Cafe. Kim continues on to say, "I wouldn't take any risk on our reputation if I knew the real deal." Meanwhile, the restaurant is slated to open before the end of February, permitting just came in two days ago. Expect a similar menu to the Asian/Mexican edibles served on the truck with some specialty entrees like oxtail with blackberry sauce and tofu biscati with lobster sauce. Down the line Kim is also planning on opening a more high end concept called Butalani.
