I do not consider myself a picky eater. I do draw the line at fried pigs ears though. Bad experience in Spain where I overate during my first real tapas experience, forced down the pigs ears, then ended up hallucinating while I slept and had one of those dreams where I died (my plane crashed into a mountain). So no more pigs ears. Line drawn.
I do like trying new places that serve different food. I still love Asian food and am on a cocktail kick, so I decided to check Pig & Khao off my list. Asian places are easy, as they usually have small plates and plenty of bar seating.
Plenty of small plates to choose from, and a great drink menu.
Stuck with the Bangkok Fire. All drinks should have Thai Chili.

I love places where you can sit right in front of the kitchen and watch them cook everything. Makes deciding what to get that much more difficult when you see all your options being made.
The chef recommended I keep going with the Pork Belly Adobo with a side of coconut rice to soak up the sauce. The poached egg oozing into the gravy was perfect with the rice. I don't think I even chewed this meal, I ate it so fast. So good. One more drink and I called it quits.
Unfortunately I am a sucker for dessert. Literally no restraint. And even more unfortunate for my high cholesterol problem, I walked by the Wowfulls right around the corner on Houston and couldn't resist. Got the "Home Sweet Home" with Captain Crunch Cookies and Cream ice cream, took this shitty picture, and inhaled it. Ended up walking some of this off all the way to the Christopher Street Path station.
