Living in Hawaii, The Food Tour: Piggy Smalls

Continuing my streak of great Hawaii eats, I took my mom here for an early Mother’s Day dinner on Thursday night since it was the only night that we could sneak in a reservation. We couldn’t get a spot with Pig and the Lady, but the menu at first glanced looked really good! For one, I really like burmese tea salad and it was the first thing here that caught my eye. Since this place is known for their noodles, I definitely had to give it a go.


Tea Salad

PROS:

  • fresh and light tasting (good way to start off the meal vs something heavy)
  • shareable
  • mixed at the table (so you don’t make a mess)
  • great balance of each individual component and dressing/flavors

CONS:

  • not enough haha. I could have eaten the whole thing itself, and it’s only supposed to be an appetizer!

Uni Spaghetti

PROS:

  • good portion, definitely shareable
  • generous with the toppings
  • pasta cooked well, not over cooked

CONS:

  • not enough uni on top or in the sauce. It was good, but I couldn’t quite taste the sea.
  • bordering on the salty end.

Truffle Cavatelli

PROS:

  • also good portions to share
  • very filling
  • super rich, made with sausage and a creamy gravy like sauce- pasta was very good consistency

CONS:

WAY too salty. We had to take it back and add other things to it to be honest, but both me and my mom ended up drinking about 3-4 cups of water each just with this plate.

The service was spot on, and it was nice to be able to get a table outside. I am almost sad I didn’t get a chance to try their pho as it was highly recommended by many people. I will definitely come back for the tea salad though! You can find them just east of Honolulu here:

Bon Apetit!
