Be prepared to pig out on salad—the portions offered at Pig in the Garden which has recently opened up in Yeouido are really, really plentiful. At the create-your-own-salad bar featured at the restaurant, you can choose from about a dozen types of salad greens, lots of protein options (grilled pork belly, chicken breast, shrimp, salmon, etc.) and 10 types of dressings including ranch, red wine vinaigrette and Caesar. There is a wide variety of cheeses and nuts to be added to your bowl or plate, as well. If you want to go with a more tried–and–true option, you can simply choose one from the made-to-order menu featuring Classic Caesar, Waldorf, Greek and Cobb among others.
As for drinks, Pig in the Garden has several drafts and cans, along with ades and fresh-squeezed juices. That’s right, it’s salad and beer, guys, and it should be done more often (and us veggie heads know that unfortunately for many bars in Seoul, having salads on their menu doesn’t mean they’re great at making them). At the moment, it offers Goose Island IPA, 312 Urban Wheat Ale and Taedonggang Pale Ale on tap, and Hand and Apple’s cider is available in cans. The beer of your choice can be paired with the grilled chicken which is served up from 5pm until 9pm—for the health-conscious ones, just make sure you have some greens tossed on it!
