Address: 83 N King St, Honolulu, HI 96817
In a previous post, I mentioned the Vietnamese restaurant Broken Rice. While that is probably my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Hawaii, The Pig and the Lady is also a great restaurant. The Pig and the Lady is a different type of restaurant though, as it is more higher end than Broken Rice.
Some strong dishes at The Pig and the Lady include the Fried Chicken, the Pho 75, and the Oxtail Pho. The menu is huge though, so there are a lot of different options depending on your taste preferences. The prices are kind of high, as the Oxtail Pho is $20 and the Pho 75 is $16; considering the types of higher-end ingredients they are using though, I think it is worth it.
The Pig and the Lady has a very modern cuisine, and a lot of its dishes taste different than traditional Vietnamese cuisine. While they are really good, some dishes do taste more Asian fusion than just Vietnamese.
The original Pig and the Lady is in Chinatown, and it is at the address listed above. However, they also have another restaurant called Piggy Smalls, which is the same type of food but more appetizer/pupu dishes (it is also cheaper). Finally, according to their website, they also have a location in Ebisu, Tokyo, but I have not had the opportunity to try it yet.
