A word from Pig and Khao
The Fatty Crew Hospitality Group has continued their expansion. The restaurant veterans have partnered with Top Chef contestant Leah Cohen to open Pig and Khao (68 Clinton Street) on the Lower East Side. The Southeast Asian inspired cuisine offers a variety of Thai and Filipino influences on the
menu including Crispy Pata and pickled mango salad (pork shank cooked in soy sauce and five spice garnished with coriander, crispy garlic served with a secret family recipe sweet and sour liver dipping sauce), Grilled Pork Jowl and Watermelon Salad (chili lime fish sauce, shallot, chicharron, herbs and toasted rice) and Crispy Quail Adobo (Szechuan peppercorn, coconut vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves, crispy garlic, scallion and soft boil quail egg). Drinks will range from cheap canned beer to large format beer served Hong Kong style (drink out of small bowls), wine cocktails and a self-serve bottomless tap in the backyard

I brought some out of town
visitors after the recommendation of another friend from out of town who LOVES FOOD. It was a HIT! We had so much pork, though, it's hard not to feel guilty. We shared the sisig, adobo, dadade, and coconut rice. We had hoped to order the short rib, but it wasn't available so we ordered the pata instead. Everything was delicious, flavored really well. The sauce for the dadade was light and very pleasing. We also shared the turon which was perfectly paired with salted caramel ice cream and the halo halo which wasn't the greatest in my opinion. I've had great halohalo, from the Philippines, to New York to California, and I found this halo halo was way too milky. Great experience overall!"

This place is great. We showed up
an hour early for our reservation and they sat us in 30 minutes at the chef's bar. Amazing food, and the chefs are really personable and fun to watch. The Khao Soi is amazing."

This place is truly awesome! I've
been here multiple times and not once have I been disappointed the ambiance is great and the food is phenomenal!! It's always cooked to perfection and is truly a treat! I love it here I'd suggest trying the green mango salad it's definetly my favorite salad on the menu, as well as the sizzling pork and egg dish truly an amayzing place with an awesome menu."

A little gem of a restaurant with
a very interesting filipino-thai fusion cuisine with portion sizes that seem to designed for sharing; the "small plates" are actually quite generous. The open kitchen has a seating in front of it, which is a nice touch. The place is small, but not cramped. The noise level is at times a little overwhelming, however. Overall, a great spot."
Dined on 2/23/2014
And food quality varies
significantly. Also very noisy. But general atmosphere is cool."

I know the restaurant is in the
lower east side... But we found a hair in three of the five dishes in our testing menu. I wanted to live the restaurant because I heard good things abut it but it was gross. I could have gotten over one hair because that could be a mistake. But three dishes? That's a bigger problem. Needless to say in never going back."
Dined on 2/20/2014
Great food, fun location and
friendly waitstaff. Can't go wrong with eating here"
Dined on 2/18/2014
Fantastic innovative thai food!
The small plates are perfect for sharing to allow everyone to taste many of the amazing dishes. Do not miss the green mango salad, heavenly coconut rice, traditional steamed buns and short ribs and spare ribs. Also the sirloin was tender and delicious as was the curry fish. Be prepared for an authentic " downtown" experience, tiny funky space with driving rap playlist (my mother would call it too small and too loud:-) although the music was loud (and not the clean version for those with delicate ears) we had no trouble talking at dinner. The staff is superb from the hostess to the chef to the wait and bus staff. Also a huge number of thai patrons suggest the food is authentically delish!"

We went for Valentine's day so it
was a little crowded in the small space. The tasting menu was outstanding. Can't say enough good things about the food. The dishes were unique and flavorful. Our service was wonderful but the couple next to us was charged for a dish they never received. Overall it was a great experience."
Dined on 2/14/2014
This place is the best brunch I
have had in along time. Excellent and unique menu, delicious food, great service, and yummy cocktails(and they do a good job keeping them full!) I would recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a boozy brunch that actually has really good food. We each got a brunch item plus we split a salad and added 2 orders of garlic fried rice, and that was perfect for four people. Lychee mimosas? Yes, please! This is definitely my new go-to brunch spot."

Came here with my fiancé and two
other friends. We ordered the fried oysters, roasted peanuts, chicharron, crispy pata, cod fish in banana leaf, mussels, green mango salad, pork belly adobo. Food was good - amongst our favorite was the roasted peanuts (great with beer, wish I could take home a whole bag), pork belly adobo, and mussels. The rest were still very good but not stellar. As expected with a restaurant that self-serve bottomless beer, the ambience was fun and casual. The service wasn't very consistent. The food came in spurts. Also, our reservation was very late so when we tried to order dessert they just told us they didn't have any. Still it was a good time. Probably come back again."

Great food, not a great space.
Definitely coming back for the great food and drinks soon."

Pig and Khao had been the subject
of a Sunday Times review of Filipino restaurants in NYC, so I booked - what a find! Tucked away in the Lower East Side, we were treated to fantastic food and amazing service. The green mango salad was crisp, fresh with just a kick of chili. We then enjoyed the BBQ ribs and the signature sizzling Sisig dish - outstanding!! Coupled with a couple of Tiger beers in china cups, we were having a ball - surrounded by discerning New York diners on all sides and watching the chefs work their magic at the open kitchen all added to the ambiance. Just when we thought it could not get better, all hail the Halo Halo dessert - it was like a huge bowl of crunchy, creamy ice cream, leche and rice krispies - delicious!!"
Dined on 2/7/2014
Disappointed by the service here
the attitude of employees doesn't seem to be good. Pork jowl was the best dish though there was barely any pork and it was overly vinegary. Also got curry noodles which were just okay and then steak which was plain. It wasn't worth the money unfortunately."
Dined on 2/1/2014
I tried the tasting menu at Pig
and Khao on a weeknight with a friend and we were more than satisfied. Among the highlights were the teaser taster in a spoon that started it all, the fried oysters, the brussels sprout and pork dish, the sisig and the halo halo. I'll definitely go back to try some of the menu staples as well!"
Dined on 1/29/2014
I'd been away from NYC for 3
years, and remembered hearing about Pig & Khao while living in TOkyo. Came back and decided to check it out... just... really, really wonderful. Thoughtfully-prepared drinks, delicious super-savory food, and it won't break the bank. The spices they use are unreal. Recommend highly!"
Dined on 1/29/2014
Went for brunch. Food was
delightful but mimosas were not that great. Our server was also a little snobby."
Dined on 10/27/2013
Very nice to see a chef
demystifying Filipino cuisine to non-Asians while at the same time maintaining the essence of the food. Kudos."
Dined on 1/25/2014
The food was truly fantastic, but
the service really left a lot to be desired. My husband and I went to celebrate our five year anniversary. We weren't seated until almost 30 minutes past our reservation time. When I checked on the status of our table 15 minutes after our time, a waitress said to me, "Well, I didn't make your reservation." When we were finally seated, our waiter told us we couldn't get the tasting menu because it was too late (but if we had been seated at our reservation time, it wouldn't have been). We finally convinced him since it was the whole reason we came, but he made us feel really guilty about it. All of the food was truly fantastic, which makes it all the worse that the service was so horrific."

I enjoyed my visit to pig and khao
so much. I called in our reservation using open-table. We arrived and were completely blown away by the cozy and warm ambiance of the place. Our server was delightful and always checked on us to make everything was pleasing. The food was so delicious and we'll presented. I especially enjoyed the pork belly, the Asian barbecue ribs, the sirloin ribs and the crispy chicken wings. I definitely will be recommended this cool restaurant to all my friends. Can't wait till my next visit back."
Dined on 1/19/2014
Great find for brunch, the
unlimited mimosas was a great deal. $15 add on to any entree, and four different types to chose from. Personally l liked lychee and mango. The brunch food options were interesting, we had the Khao Soi and the Banh Xeo. Both were delicious and fun to eat. Food comes out family style, so great if you're with someone who is down to share. Great brunch!"
Dined on 1/19/2014
I enjoyed the food hear but I
think it is a bit overhyped and overpriced . Maharlika is much better for Filipino food in NYC"
Dined on 4/6/2013
Loved our dinner; this is our
second time here. We had some delicious sisig and a roasted lamb neck dinner. Looking forward to trying more of the menu items the next time"
Dined on 1/9/2014
As a Chef I love to explore and
support restaurants. I feel that's really a duty of sorts. After a long week of cooking for guests, I look forward to finding a new place to feast upon. Leah Cohen and her team have created a special place. Modern and fresh Filipino cuisine with a hip vibe that has you screaming for more. From the Mango Salad, Garlic Rice, Brussels + Pork Jowl and the Sisig, every flavor was amazing, cravable, beautifully balanced and plated. I can't wait to come back and enjoy again."
Dined on 1/12/2014
We sampled 10 dishes on the menu
and they all delighted us. Fresh ingredients, bright flavors and interesting combinations make this a restaurant a "must" to visit."
Dined on 1/3/2014
I liked a lot of things at Pig and
Khao. The sizzling sisig was great, as was the lamb's neck. I didn't like the cod fish wrapped in a banana leaf. There was an interesting salty topping, but it was too strong, and there was too much on top of the cod. Otherwise, a small trendy place in the LES. A little noisy, but good service."
Dined on 12/30/2013
I've come to the conclusion that
the tasting menu is only good for couples. First time I was here I loved it. Second time around, did not enjoy it as much with the group of four."
Dined on 1/2/2014
Food was mediocre. Receptionist
was not accomodating. It took another 20minutes from reservation time to be seated (and that's after a few times of asking to be seated when there were 3 tables obviously available). Whats the point of making a reservation thru Open Table if we have to beg to be seated."
Dined on 12/31/2013
We came here for the second time
(party of 6) and really enjoyed the place. This is an asian (mostly Thai) restaurant, where you eat family-style: everything should be shared. If you are a smaller group, you can also book at the bar in front of the kitchen"
Dined on 12/29/2013
Fun time with a group of friends.
Great opportunity to introduce them to S.E. Asian cuisine. Keep up the great work."
Dined on 12/29/2013
Great place. Red curry dish was
super. The pata was greasy but traditionally cooked and was pretty yummy too. Sirloin was really tasty too. Best part is the open kitchen and the cool chefs and staff dancing around to rap fun music. Cool vibe, try it."
Dined on 12/29/2013
I'm still amazed that a Filipina
gal in New York can now have champorado with champagne at brunch, thanks to Pig and Khao. Also love coming here for their spot-on sisig and longganiza with lots of garlic rice, and when my tastebuds are less patriotic, the khao soi is really yummy too. The bottomless mimosas are a lovely bonus!"
Dined on 12/28/2013
We went to brunch here...and it
was down-right awesome! The service was great, the food better and...oh, the bottomless mimosas!!! The food was flavorful, fresh and I just wanted to try more dishes. I will definitely go back soon. Highly recommended!"
Dined on 10/6/2013
Did the tasting menu while sitting
at the chefs table. Highly recommend this. There was too much food for us to even finish everything. Everything was fantastic!"
Dined on 12/18/2013
The restaurant was really busy and
so we had to wait a while even though we had a reservation, but the wait staff (and everyone here) were really nice and served us drinks while we waited. That there was such a long wait and so many people (and on a Tuesday night!) is just a testament to how fantastic the food is. The sisig is crispy and amazing, and the cod in coconut sauce is refreshing and sweet. The lamb's neck (in a massaman curry sauce with sauteed kale) was incredible, albeit a little fatty. Highly recommended. Better for groups, as opposed to dates, so long as you have a reservation. Sitting at the bar is really cool because the chefs are awesome, but not as intimate."
Dined on 12/17/2013
There were 17 of us that came up
to NYC, mostly from Houston, for my cousin's bachelorette party. We were so late due to holiday traffic but they were patient, fed us fabulous food from our roots...with a twist, great service, accommodating during the planning, and just down right made us proud that we are of Filipino descent. Sisig is the s***, shrimp toast, khao soi, cod in banana leaf, halo halo, and turon were GOOOOOOODDDDD! I will try to come back soon!!!"
Dined on 12/13/2013
Fantastic for dinner, however
brunch was lacking. We ordered 5 different brunch menu items to share. The common denominators amongst all the dishes: greasy, overly fatty and lacking flavor."
Dined on 12/14/2013
Great fusion of flavors, very LES
atmosphere. Old school rap music made for fun background noise while devouring mouth-watering, family-style plates. Wait staff was extremely accommodating when I asked them to make me a custom drink and add their own flare - the drink was a knock out, by the way. The restaurant is small and crowded, but that's what you must be looking for if you're headed downtown. I have recommended this to numerous friends and would definitely go back."
Dined on 12/13/2013
The restaurant has a good vibe,
but the service is poor and the food not so great either, definitely overpriced for what it has to offer. When we arrived, turns out that we were assigned the worst table possible, right by the door, and mind you it was really cold, the chairs were unstable, floor uneven. We immediately asked to be seated elsewhere, by a similar empty table, but the hostess refused. We were served 3 of our 5 entrees very quickly and needed to wait for the other 2 for a long while, only receiving a side of veggies at the very end, when we were done with all the rest of the food. Some of entrees were very blend, others far too spicy and the menu did not specify if a dish came spicy at all."

I went for my birthday and ran
back a few weeks later. The curry noodles and the incredible pork ribs are not to be missed! Great place."
