The Flying Pig Bistro offers pan-European cuisine focused on roasts and meats, with a good mix of salads, starters, mains and pastas, with a few specials and burgers listed separately. A quick browse of the weekend brunch menu reveals items such as avocado smash and roast beef sandwich at very reasonable prices.
We can’t resist the specials and opt for a pig burger and a pork tenderloin to share. The burger proves a top choice – pulled pork slathered in barbecue sauce, smothered in melted Swiss cheese and sandwiched between the sides of a toasted brioche bun. Just as a good are the sides. The fries are well seasoned and the ginger infused slaw is a great palate cleanser, setting us up nicely for the next dish. The tenderloin comes wrapped in bacon, lightly fried and served atop a bed of spinach. Flavourful and extremely tender, the pork is top quality here.
Ending the meal on a sweet note, we trial the Eton mess since it’s often tricky to serve a decent meringue in Hong Kong due to the humidity. It doesn’t disappoint, the egg white is crunchy and the fresh strawberries have just the right amount of tartness to round off our meaty meal.
