Description

Village Voice's Description

The newest offering from the Fatty Crew restaurant group is a Thai-Filipino hybrid on the Lower East Side, helmed by former Top Chef contestant Leah Cohen. Feast on a wobbly, braised pig’s head or a hot and rich red curry rice salad—the menu is full of eager-to-please dishes with nice flavors but little depth. The waitstaff appears to be having some fun in this crowded, rowdy dining room, though the service often feels clumsy. But choose your meal carefully and a decent night could be in the cards.

Tips from foursquare

  • The New Yorker on 01/10/13

    "David Chang [tried] to create a new breed of Asian-American comfort food, but... the formula doesn't work." - Lizzie Widdicombe reviews Pig and Khao

  • Try the sisig, a typical Filipino dish made with pork head. Less adventurous options include longanisa sausage or sizzling corned beef hash with garlic fried rice.

  • 7th.List on 12/01/12

    On the menu try Grilled Curry Lamb Ribs($24) sweet-spicy curried lamb ribs that are falling-off-the-bone tender and ->balanced<- with a garlic-spiked yogurt and savory flatbread. Halo Halo for Dessert

  • Serious Eats on 07/24/13

    A Top Chef contestant's spin on Thai and Filipino cooking to mixed results. While some dishes don't live up to their inspirations, others are spicy and bright.

  • Cathy M. on 12/22/12

    One of the best meals outside of Asia I've had in the US. Adding this to my go-to list of awesome, unassuming restaurants in NYC. Get the sirloin and the coconut rice.
