If what I ate at Sybarite Pig seems a little excessive well that’s probably because it was. I live by the ideology that I drove over an hour to get here so I’m going to make the most of it. In this case, dish after dish was excellent so I just couldn’t stop ordering. And then when I was done, dessert had to cap off the late afternoon meal.
I let the experts choose my beer from their large selection, it was a Weihenstephaner Pilsner. The food bombardment began with Korean Style Short Ribs (Alder Smoked Salt/Chives/Korean Style Glaze), the Duck Fat Roasted Potato Salad, and the Wagyu Duck Fat Burger (Kaiser Roll, Tomato, Red Onions, Red Onion Jelly) with a side of Mac & Cheese. I’m not even sure anyone could come up with a more perfect trio (foursome?) to start with. After a bite here, then a bite there and with a partial mouthful I added a couple more fellas to my table, which was nearing max capacity quickly.
The Hellswine II Sausage (Pretzel Bun, Guava, Rocoto/Sweet & Spicy Slaw) and the Piggy Pins (Brioche Style dough and stuffed with Bacon seasoned with Aleppo Peppers and Maple Syrup, Capers, Olives, and Raisins) arrived next. The Piggy Pigs might look familiar to some of you since they’re a very close riff on the Venezuelan dish Pan de Jamón. Both excellent and both worth ordering.
There were two options for dessert and I couldn’t decide so that means that both made their way to me. The Bacon Chocolate Bar (Belgian Chocolate, Bells Kalamazoo Stout, rendered Bacon Fat and Bacon) & the Oaxacan Bar (Belgian Chocolate, Cayenne, Ancho Chile, Cinnamon, and Amaretto) were as decadent as they sound. The best way to describe them is ridiculous, which seems to be a recurring theme with the food at Sybarite Pig.
Would I make the drive again? In a heartbeat. A better question is, why haven’t you been here yet?
