Pig and The Lady is a Vietnamese restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is a modern take on Vietnamese food. Normally, modern takes on Asian food is disappointing, especially street food. However, the first time I ate at this place 4 years ago, I was blown away and remember thinking to myself “they must be putting crack in their food because its very addictive”. I recently returned, and the food is still addictive as ever, but not every dish was a home run this time.
Here is the menu:
We started off with Dad’s toast. It was mind-blowingly delicious. Sardines braised in Portuguese sausage and tomato sauce. SO GOOD!
Then the Red Wine beef pho. Great broth.
..and finally, the scallop and clam curry. I was not a fan of this. The sauce was gritty and lacked depth of flavor. I would not order this again. Last time I went, I had the fried chicken, some sort of bahn mi dip, pho and oysters and it was all delicious.
Service was good. Cocktails are good. I would return. 8.5/10
