Food Place Review: Chicken & Pig

Food Place Review: Chicken & Pig

Many would have heard of the story of a chicken and a pig. If you haven’t, well, it’s about a chicken and a pig who both lived the good life on a farm. Having been blessed with a farmer who was good to them, the chicken proposed that they do something nice for him; like a breakfast of ham and eggs. After some thought, the pig made the point that while the chicken was involved, he, the pig, had to be committed. Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie

A big call

Well, in the case of Chicken & Pig, located on 78A Pirie Street, in the Adelaide CBD, it looks like not only was the pig committed but also the chicken and the sheep! Amazing wood oven roasted meats and healthy serves of innovative salad is the name of the game in this joint. It’s may not look pretty but you quickly get over it when it hits your taste buds. Oh, and here’s one for the record…THE BEST CRACKLING IN TOWN! Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie

Chicken and Pig is another one of those places where you walk past the big queue and wonder “What’s all the fuss about?” My boss instigated my first visit to Chicken & Pig, but somehow I managed to pay for both of us. If I remember correctly, he may have forgotten his wallet or something. How convenient!  Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie

Amazing taste and lost of it!

If ever you wanted to get a lunch that lasts you past dinner, this is your sorta place! For the standard price of just under thirteen bucks, you get a mountain of food. Whether by design or otherwise, the mix of large chunks of tender meat coupled with huge serves of beautiful salad, makes for an clever psychological play on the mind. I found myself justifying my consumption of what was undoubtedly a substantial calorie count because there was lots of salad to go with it, like somehow the salad will make the calories disappear. Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie

Brilliant business model

Chicken and Pig run on a very simple business model, based on a very simple menu. You can have any combination of Pork, Chicken and Lamb together with any three salads, packed tightly in a specially-designed expandable box, for $12.50, or you can have a meat roll for $8.50. When they run out of meat, they shut shop for the day. Minimal wastage. Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie

Get there early!

Given the queue each time I’ve gone there, I estimate that COB for these guys is usually around 1pm and 1:30pm. So, if you’re planning on lunching at the Chicken & Pig, I’d recommend that you get there early. Yeow Family; Poh Ling Yeow; Foodie
