Flying Pig Cafe, the brick and mortar spinoff of the Flying Pig Truck (remember that whole porn fiasco?), just passed final inspections and will open in Little Tokyo on July 16 with a slew of freebies and giveaways. On opening day, from 5-8PM, pop by for gratis pork belly buns (one of Flying Pig's signature dishes), beer, and togarashi fries. Owner Joe Kim also plans to give the first 50 guests a coupon for half off dinner for two, customers who received a specially marked pork bun win a "Whole Butt" dinner, and... guests who dress as a pig for the opening score a $50 gift certificate. Nice. Then, at 8PM, the cafe opens to the public for dinner.
Like the Flying Pig Truck, Flying Pig Cafe serves an Asian/American hybrid inclusive of Prosciutto con Shishito (cream cheese, chili paste, basil, prosciutto), Oxtail, even Uni Pasta. Read the dinner menu here, and lunch over here. While we're not sure how big those plates are, prices seem quite reasonable with most dishes in the $7-$12 range. One steak dish costs $25 and that Whole Butt dinner runs $60, but it does feed six people.
In the drinks department Flying Pig serves red and white vino, sake, and both bottled and draft beer from Sapporo to Bud to Hangar 24 Orange Wheat. Avoid alcohol by ordering lemonade, Mexican Coke, ginger beer, or water.
