The very nature of BBQ screams 'Merica, but at The Hungry Pig, a little bit of Asian flair goes a long way. Owner Eiddy Pennson comes from a background in Thai cuisine, and instead of leaving behind curry and basil for a life of Memphis-style ribs, she took a little bit with her. Yes, there are the baby back ribs and the pulled beef brisket, the BBQ chicken and the pulled pork sandwich. But there is also pork belly and chicken sa-te, curried potatoes and spicy eggplant salad, all of which can be enjoyed in The Hungry Pig's spacious seating area if you're not a fan of the traditional find-a-spot-in-the-parking-lot strategy that some of LA's other BBQ restaurants employ. If you want to take some of that brisket home, you're in luck—most of the beef, chicken and pork are sold by the pound as well.
