Hawaii Mom Blog: The Pig & The Lady - Mama Le's Menu

The Pig & The Lady - Mama Le's Menu

I first reviewed The Pig and the Lady pop up restaurant in June of 2011. In was their inaugural pop up, and it was a hit. Over the past year, Chef Andrew Le and the Pig and the Lady continued to pop up at Hank's Haute Dogs, and also started selling their Vietnamese inspired culinary delights at the Farmers Markets around the island (Blaisdell Center on Wednesdays, Kailua on Thursdays, Kapiolani Community College on Saturdays).

In September of last year, Mama Le (Chef Andrew's mom and the mastermind behind many of the Pig and the Lady offerings) suffered a stroke and it was a long and hard road to recovery for her. But a combination of willpower, determination, spirit, and help from her loving family brought her back, and the family decided to do two pop-ups in celebration of Mama Le.

The first of two occurred last night, and I was fortunate to get a seat in the sold out event.

The venue - Hank's Haute Dogs on Coral Street

The inside of Hank's was transformed into a dining room complete with small floral centerpieces and linen table cloths and napkins

Pickled veggies with house-made shrimp chips kept the early-arrivers occupied.

Tom Chien Boc Com: tapioca-flake crusted Kauai shrimp, thin vermicelli, fish sauce vinaigrette

Canh Chua: talapia, taro stem, pineapple, tamarind broth

Ga Nuong Nieu Chien Phong: claypot of braised chicken with shallots, thai ginger, pandan leaves, lemon grass, puff rice

Hu Tieu My Tho: a noodle soup of roasted pork loin, quail egg, shrimp, fried shallots, chrysanthem, fresh herbs, finished with a red crab sauce

Che Xam Bao Luong: lotus root & seed, Chinese dates, dried longon & komba

Unfortunately tonight's event is also sold out, but you can check them out at the Farmers Markets.
