Time Out Says

3 out of 5 stars

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. The pig-centric menu features dishes like classic “sizzling sisig,” a chopped-pig’s-head-and-fried-egg breakfast, featuring fatty bits fragrant with kafir lime, ginger and chilies, beautifully caramelized, as they should be, in a cast-iron pan. Other highlights include pork jowl with brussels sprouts, Thai curry chicken wings, and sweet-spicy curried lamb ribs. An enclosed backyard is open year-round so you and your crew can sprawl out and dig in family-style.
