    Sisig, curry fish, ribs, pad see ew, mushroom salad. Cilantro soda w gin interesting but skip the tropical drink v sour.

    Try the sisig, a typical Filipino dish made with pork head. Less adventurous options include longanisa sausage or sizzling corned beef hash with garlic fried rice. Read more

    David Chang create a new breed of Asian-American comfort food with Fatty Crew (Fatty ’Cue, Fatty Crab), but at Pig and Khao, the formula doesn’t work as smoothly. Filipino deserts, halo-halo, pinipig.

    Everything is delicious, you'll want to wipe the plates clean and wish you weren't full to order more! My only problem is that they don't accept AMEX!

    If you've been to the Far East, this place serves refined hawker centre food. Full of flavour, worth a try when you're in LES.

    A+ Asian hipster fusion. Get the Russ & Daughters smoked salmon chips, crispy rice salad, the noodle small dish (starts with a K), and the grilled curry lamb ribs. Fullness awaits

    Great for a boozy brunch. They churn out plates one at a time so don't expect it to be a fancy kitchen style of service. Enjoy the decor too!

    Try the Sisig, Green Papaya Salad, and Short Rib Rendang! Also grab a San Miguel while you're at it 😉 can't wait to go back and try more!

    Get the cod in banana leaf, pork jowl with Brussels, and multiple sides of coconut rice because it's just that good. And don't forget to pay with Cover!

    It's all about choosing the right dishes here. Mussels were great, esp with some coco rice. Chicken in the mango salad was a bit chintzy, khao soi quite heavy.

    The food is awesome and delicious . Prices should match the portions.Try making this your last stop, unless you want to smell like a fried pig by the time you get home/club . You'll get eaten alive

    Pork belly adobo is srsly the best i've had. Chicken wings are amazing and the coconut rice is just the right amount of sweetness, not too sweet.

    Coconut rice is life. Loved the pork belly adobo. The Khao Soi is my favorite dish on the menu.

    Crispy pata was great! 😊 I did expect a massive serving but it was just the right size for my appetite

    The papaya salad and the crispy pata, couldn’t fault them. The adobo was not the traditional adobo. I love the technique of a crispy pork belly but the sauce was non-traditional. such a let down.

    Great food with surprisingly large portion size. Not quite as spicy as local Thai food, but more appropriate than most places in NYC.

    Cool Filipino fusion spot in LES with nice old-school influenced interior. Food is bomb and so are the cocktails. Get the sisig!

    Get some sisig, the khao soi, coconut rice & a bottle of singha. Skip the micheladas unless you're into a hot sauce flavored cocktail.

    Sick tunes and delicious spicy bites. One of Obama's favorite restaurants in the Lower East Side. If you're on the fence, do it!

    Must try the Sisig (sizzling pig head), ribs and coconut rice. Also go for the curried chicken wing special if it's available.

    Sisig is amazing and coconut rice! The pork belly was a little heavy. The small plates were as big as full meals

    Incredible food and even better soundtrack (Mobb Deep, KRS-1, Snoop). Service is great and perfect chill date spot. Don't miss the sisig and sirloin.

    Enjoyed the ribs and the cole slaw it came with. Probably skip the sisig. Overall it's worth the hike for an interesting food experience.

    Get the sisig with coconut rice -- a great combination of sweet and savoy. Don't forget the halo halo!

    Try the Green Mango salad, the Papaya Noodle salad, and the grilled Pork Jowl...but the best item on the menu is the Coconut Rice!

    Of course the sisig but I also highly recommend the pork jowl with fried brussels sprouts.

    The grilled Pork Jowl is refreshing and tasty. I didn't expect the watermelon to go so well with the pork and spices. Really enjoyable dish.

    Don't miss the pork jowl with Brussels sprouts or the green papaya salad. So good! Pretty generous portions, too.

    The brussel sprouts were burnt and just not good in general, the rest of the dinner was incredible. I could have drank the pork adobo sauce with a straw

    Sit at the bar if you can. Faces the open kitchen, and gives you an intimate view of the chef and her team at work.

    Coconut rice is amazing- big portion (1.5-2x more than usual Asian rest. I'll come back only for this. Loved the adobo but not the grilled sirloin; thought it was too salty. A "good to try" place.

    Cocktails here are on point. The "FTP" tastes like an alcoholic liquid apple pie. The cilantro soda with gin is a perfectly refreshing summer drink.
