Hightail it over to Piggy Tail, a Hong Kong & Malaysian collaboration that’s heading into Bangsar this week; check out that striking storefront emblem – pink porcine posteriors might be the last thing that passers-by expect to see in Telawi. Pigs will fly!

Pork and Cocktails!

Piggy Tail specialises – as its name suggests – in pork & cocktails; it takes over the venue vacated by Foodtique, but the ownership remains essentially the same, with links to roasted meat brand Four Seasons in Subang’s Empire Shopping Gallery.

Lust-Worthy Pork

Piggy Tail is still in its soft-launch stage; the menu isn’t fully finalised (we hear pig ears are in the pipeline), but for now, come in a foursome to share this memorably massive sampling platter. Lust-worthy pork of epic proportions for Herculean appetites.

For Herculean Appetites

Pork knuckle, intestines, burger, sausages, chops, ribs (plus some beef to spare), a worthwhile order for RM238.

Roasted Pork Knuckle

The highlight: the roasted knuckle, resting on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes. It’s the epitome of what an excellent knuckle can be, with irresistibly crispy skin enveloping irreproachably luscious flesh. Love, love, love.

Juicy Pork Burger

We’re smitten as well with Piggy Tail’s pork burger, which boasts one of the thickest kitchen-made patties ever, juicier than expected & well-tuned in taste, topped with bacon & onion rings, with veggies & a nice balance of herbs at the base. Throw in a sunny-side-up & this would be even more pleasurable.

Pork Intestines

This is a bit of an acquired taste, but the pork intestines – transformed into flavoursome, compellingly textured sausages – are intriguing too. Note that Piggy Tail opens only during dinnertime this week, but by Monday, it’ll likely launch for lunch everyday.

Succulent Sausages

Prefer the regular sort of sausages? Piggy Tail makes one with spices & the other with herbs, both sufficiently succulent. The sliced pork chop pales in comparison – enjoyable enough but perhaps not as distinctively delicious, cushioned with sauerkraut.

Pork Spare Rib

Folks in search of a good ribbing might like Piggy Tail’s pork spare rib, with its bounteous balance of flesh & fat. The boneless beef rib on the side may be the odd man out on this platter, but it fits in pretty well with the protein-powered theme nonetheless.

20 Cocktails!

Some 20 cocktails will be unveiled on the official menu soon; we had one minty & another with Malibu (expect several to feature cute names like Mr Piggy). Kirin on tap is available too.

This row on Telawi is now bustling with unabashedly porky places like El Meson & New Ban Lee; Piggy Tail has the potential to become a mainstay that keeps the hog-loving flag flying proud & high.
