|Nice spot to eat and people watch|
Given the bad experience I have had with the food from Smoken Bones Cook Shack, and people tell me this is the best BBQ in Victoria, I was not wanting to try Pig.
After meeting for worship on Sunday, Sheila and I ran some errands and then wanted to eat lunch. She chose Pig, I tried some lame excuses about parking as a reason to go there (I was honestly holding out for Dim Sum). She got me to go and I was impressed.
The setting is interesting, the tables and chairs are really basic. The chairs look like basic school chairs from decades ago. The tables all come with rolls of paper towels - when I saw this coming I knew the food would messy, which is how BBQ should be,
I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the fried mac and cheese. Sheila ordered the schnitzel, I will leave it to her to talk about here food.

Serving drinks in canning jars is fun but it has been done many times before, it is one aspect of the restaurant that felt a bit gimmicky and forced.
The food came on a plastic tray covered in butchers paper, a smart way to serve food that is by nature messy.
All in all I am very impressed and I will be going back. The price was good as well, very affordable, in fact the meal was cheaper than if I went to Macdonalds.
