I lost count of the number of times the word “piggy” appears on the menu of Piggy Tail. This eatery, hardly a year old (opened since November last year) located in the busy Telawi area of Bangsar is packing in pork lovers by the droves.
Looking at the menu, which is full of all sorts of porcine delights, it’s kinda difficult to make a selection because everything looks good. The goodies are grouped under “Breakfast”, “Salads”, “Soups”, “Pasta”, “Piggy Burgers”, “Rice” and “Desserts”. In case these are too overwhelming, there’s also a small section called “Non-piggy”.
Indecisive first-timers to this cafe will do well to order their Mega Piggy Platter (RM268) to get initiated as this platter contains all their specialities like pork knuckle, short ribs, long ribs, pork franks, pork chop with supreme sauerkraut, mash and salad. It’s like pork heaven on a platter.
Make sure you have a few fellow diners to share this though, as the portion is pretty substantial. But worry not, there’s also an Individual Platter for RM35. I can’t pick out any favourites among this mountain of piggy indulgence as every piece was good.
The difference between the long and short ribs is that the long ribs are more meaty and contains a nice fatty layer.
Their signature Pork Knuckle (RM86) has an incredibly crunchy crackling and the meat beneath remained tender and moist. The marinade has infused the tender meat and cartilage – a feat that some other places fail miserably.
Premium Pork Aglio Olio Pasta (RM25)– grilled Sakura pork neck, chilli flakes, garlic, sliced bacon – it’s one of their most popular items on the menu and I can understand why.
Piggy Pork Corn (RM16) – deep-fried Sakura pork chunks with special BBQ mayo sauce. These were so addictive that it was darn hard to stop munching on them!
Truffle Ice Cream with Bacon (RM18) – this is a must-try dessert! Creamy smooth ice-cream perfumed delicately with truffles and sprinkled with crunchy smokey bits of bacon – a perfect combo of sweet and savoury flavours.
