Halo-Halo at Pig and Khao

The Southeast Asian honky-tonk is fast becoming a food-world cliché. Pig and Khao might have seemed audacious once, but it comes across as mostly derivative today. Run by former Top Chef contender Leah Cohen, the joint has a familiar setup, with plenty of canned beer, hot chilies and hip-hop. Chef Leah Cohen has been turning diners on to funky Southeast Asian flavors since 2012. The pig-centric menu features dishes like Sizzling Sisig, Pork Jowl with Brussels Sprouts, Khao Soi, Thai Curry Chicken Wings and more. Enclosed backyard seating is available year-round, and the restaurant prepares a traditional Filipino brunch on the weekends with bottomless mimosas.
