Eating At The Noble Pig In Austin
My father has long maintained that the hog is the most noble of animals.
While we wait for Raymond Tatum to open his pig cart we can content ourselves with The Noble Pig.
omg they had me at duck pastrami.
i am usually on the other side of 183 but it's not too far out of the way.
maybe this area is going to have more spots open up.
stuffed (the cajun meat market) is near there too.
I stopped by for lunch and ordered the smoked pork (belly, I think) BLT, which was recommended by John who I believe is an owner/chef. Wow, it was delicious, with a smokey (but not too smokey), melt in your mouth goodness. The made in house bread was great as was the mayo or aioli on the sandwich. I'll definitely be back... next time for the duck pastrami or the Noble Pig sandwich. The menu is so unique, especially for Northwest Austin / Cedar Park. I intend to try everything!
I made it over there today.
The food: I had the Oyster Po-Boy. I think it was somewhat of an existential crisis for me that it wasn't on french bread (I had it on wheat), but I got over it and enjoyed a tasty sandwich. I wished the remoulade had more of a kick, but they serve theirs with bacon, which is a nice touch. Sandwich and a soda worked out to about $9
The intangibles: The music was Van Morrison, which I heartily approve of, the restaurant was really clean, and the food came out fast, always a plus at lunch.
Not quite ready to take on foodheads, but I will be back. A great new option here in the NW.
These guys are awesome! It's also worth noting they serve breakfast, too - starting at 6 am *groan!*. Saturday, we plan on checking out the blueberry waffle with sausage and scrambled egg.
