Didn't think I was a sausage person, but I love simple food made from high-quality ingredients. Here, everything is made in-house. You can even pull up to the side bar to watch some stage of sausages being made, if that's your thing; these guys disprove at least the charcuterie side of the infamous John Godfrey Saxe quote. Scrimshaw Pilsner, Linden St. Burning Oak Black Lager, North Coast Brewery Le Merle Saison, and a very dry cider on tap.
I tried the Boudin blanc and the Chicago dog. Sausages are presented on fresh locally-made rolls with lots of fresh toppings. The pickled sides looked wonderful.
Both the shaker lemon and spicy pecan pies, also baked right there, were delicious. Didn't see a seasonal option, but didn't have room.
I'll be back to try the breakfast sausage and more.
Pig & Pie has been open 2 weeks & I finally made the trip over there. Took Bart to 24th St & walked to the Left to Harrison past Humphry Slocumbe on the Left-hand side. Look for the giant Discolandia Records sign, under that is the sign for Handmade Sausages/Pie. Door says "Pig & Pie"
Check out the chalkboard menu with prices.
I asked the girl what is the most popular sausage & she said Banh Mi $8.5 - so I got it. It takes a long while to make for some reason. Banh mi has black pepper, garlic, pork & pork skin sausage, pickled daikon & carrot, jalapeno, cucumber, cilantro, Sriracha & chicken liver pate. I liked it ok. Good crunchy pickle on the side.
I want to try Chicago Dog $8 or Eggplant Italian $8.5 next time.
Also, go the seasonal Thyme, brandy, apricot, nectarine $5/slice pie. Thin crust, good amount of fruit, though I did have more crust than crust to the end. It tasted good. If you want ala mode it's extra $2 - suppose to be homemade ice cream. Didn't try it.
Spiced pecan $5 looked good
Shaker Lemon $4 - looked good too.
Arnold Palmer $3; Mint rosewater lemonade $3. Milk $2. They have Draft beer too - not sure cost.
They have Sparky's Rootbeer Large bottle in the drink case $4 - next time.
Tap water - help yourself.
