Super cute and great food! – When we come here for happy hour, we usually stay a while. The food is wonderful (we love finger foods) but the place is also really fun and pleasant to hang out in. We love the people there, too, they are so friendly, so we feel right at home. We can't get enough of their food, so we always go back whenever we have the chance to experience it again.
Super! – This is one of those places that you really shouldn't pass by. When you see it for yourself, you'll just want to go inside... and you should! The food is just as good as the ambiance. If you want to go to a cute place and kick back with your family or friends while enjoying really good food, I would really recommend you try this place. It's one of the best restaurants in the area, hands down. Their main entrees and their apps and drinks and all their specials is something that you won't want to miss.
Best Sushi – We went there for happy hour because it looked so inviting as we walked by. We didn't plan on staying so long, but ended up really having a great time. Next time, we'll plan on going there and trying more of their apps. They provide great deals for happy hour and I would highly recommend planning on getting there early so you can stay a while. Really fun place.
Great Sushi – I read reviews about this place before going, and although they were wavering, I decided to go because there were some really positive reviews. I, too, think this place is adorable. My family especially liked the ambiance, and we will be back as soon as we can. Everyone was more than happy with what they ordered, and it's a rare thing to satisfy everyone in the family. There were so many things on the menu that were intriguing, that we all want to come back and try some more.
Happy hour is awesome!!! – This place is too cute. My wife and kids just love the decor, and I love the food. Try their happy hour, for sure, because they have some wonderful treats while you're waiting for dinner. Loved it!!!
I'm glad I finally went there! – I thought I'd try this place since so many people told me that they love to go there, and now I know why. I finally met some friends there and we had an awesome time. Great food. No complaints whatsoever. Service was excellent. What more can I say?
The Flying Pig CafÃ© finds a home in Los Angeles, CA – Pork Belly Taco is braised pork belly with red onion escabeche, pickled sesame cucumber, and death sauce on a steamed bao bun. This is just insane! The pork belly is like butter and just melts in your mouth. The toppings round out the flavors and give it a nice crunch. The bao bun is just right; light on the inside and chewy on the outside. This will definitely give you a foodgasm. It is served exactly like on the truck, just plated, not in a paper basket. Thumbs up, way up!
BBQ pork ribs are covered with housemade BBQ sauce and served with brown rice and pickled red cabbage. These ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and juicy. The pork has a rich flavor and is strong enough to show through the sauce. The sauce itself is amazing! It has a southern BBQ flavor with a hint of Asian flare. It’s slightly sweet with a bold flavor that compliments the pork well. You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! The pickled red cabbage reminds me of a cross between kimchee and sunomono. Thumbs up, way up!
Peanut Butter Carnitas Tacos? Sounds weird, right? It’s more like a Thai peanut sauce as a base. The carnitas are tender and juicy, more like pulled pork. The red onion escabeche is awesome and ties everything together. Thumbs up!
Escargot is served in a garlic and chive butter cream sauce accompanied by fresh slices of baguette. This is so good! You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! This would also be great on pasta with its buttery, garlic goodness. This would rival any French restaurant in town and you don’t even have to fish them out of the shell. Make sure you sop up all of the sauce with the baguette slices. You don’t want to waste a drop of buttery perfection. Thumbs up, way up!
The Flying Pig Café’s version of Loco Moco is brown rice topped with pork and beef patties, grilled spam, barbequed beans, and a sunny side egg. They had to change from the typical brown gravy that they would normally serve in Hawaii to barbequed beans for the LA palate. Unfortunately, you won’t find barbequed beans on your Loco Moco in Hawaii. The patties are homemade with a hint of Worcestershire sauce, but the beans just don’t match. I had to change my thinking and image the barbequed beans with the rice to be like red beans and rice that you would find in Louisiana. It seemed okay once I changed my flavor palate in my mind.
Great food and service – I came in here after work for their Happy Hour and had the most amazing food ever. I had never had asian fusion but it was absolutely delicious! The duck taco was to die for.
