Opening Friday: Piggy Smalls

The sky is the limit when it comes to The Pig and the Lady. From humble beginnings as a pop-up in Kakaako, to a successful brick-and-mortar in Chinatown, the Pig and the Lady will be adding yet another arm to their family business tomorrow, when Piggy Smalls opens to the public in Ward Village.  This is in addition to their booths at various Farmers Markets around Oahu, special events, and private functions!

The Le Family invited their family, friends, and the media to get a sneak peak of the menu that will be featured at Piggy Smalls.  As an old friend of one of the Le brothers, my hubby, aunt, and I were invited to get a taste of the offerings, and let me tell you folks - this is a dining experience you will not want to miss out on.

The mastermind behind Piggy Smalls is executive chef/owner Andrew Le. Here he is with his wonderful wife Teri and their almost-two year old son Ollie.

Piggy Smalls took over the space at Ward Centre, formerly occupied by Kua Aina. They have a handful of two tables and a long communal table for those who dine-in.

The kitchen is open and visible from the floor.

Here's a preview of some of the offerings on the menu:


Loaded Baked Potato Beignets


Moroccan Green Papaya Salad
Roasted Cauliflower

Salad of Sprouting Seeds


Farmer's Goulash




Slushie of the week: lilikoi
Milk & Honey
Chanh Muoi & Apple Tarte Tatin (ala mode +$2)
Jackie, Me, John, and Alex Le (owner)

I am so excited for the Le Family. This is the perfect addition to their repertoire of new-age Vietnamese Cuisine. 

On a side note, Chef Andrew recently won the 2017 Hale Aina Award for Restaurateur of the Year, and The Pig and the Lady won awards for Best Oahu Restaurant, Best Business Lunch, and Best Cocktail and Best Vietnamese! Congrats to the Le Family and The Pig and the Lady crew!
