The former food truck's Little Tokyo digs are going away in place of a new robata-ya.

Flying Pig Cafe, which once served creative Asian fusion bites, is no longer serving in Little Tokyo despite brisk walking traffic and a burgeoning local community. In its stead comes Robata Kaba, according to this ABC post issued last week. An early proponent of the pork belly bun and duck taco, the concept still has an eatery at FigAt7th in Financial District. No word on who's behind the new eatery except for one Kohei Hanabara.
