Have you seen our new #PiggySmalls tote bags? They're durable, large (perfect for farmers market produce) and can hold a 2 year old! They’re the perfect holiday stocking stuffer! You can order them over at our official website, or buy them in person at our Chinatown or Ward Village locations. Kudos goes to our model, Ollie, who really tested the durability of this bag by stuffing himself in there like a marsupial.
In addition, since we are in the season of giving, why not purchase a gift card for that perfect “Secret Santa” present? Buy them in person at the restaurant for any denomination and the receiver can use it at either The Pig & the Lady, Piggy Smalls, or even at the farmers market!
Another great stocking stuffer is the return of the Holiday Piggy Poop — valrhona chocolate covered bits of bacon fat waffle cone, salted pretzels, toasted walnuts, dried currants, mini marshmallows, valrhona crinkle cookies and maldon salt tossed in coconut powered sugar. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? They’ll be available for purchase soon with pre-orders starting next week.
Since Chef Andrew and Mama Le have returned from their epic Vietnam trip, they’ve got Hanoi in their mind. Therefore, the farmers markets will be featuring some Northern style culinary traditions that are rarely seen on menus in Vietnamese restaurants in America.
Here are some highlights for this week’s farmers market menu:
MIEN MANG GA
Mien = Glass Noodle
Mang = Bamboo
Ga = Chicken
This dish has so much flavor due to the pork stock and bamboo. The glass noodles, on the other hand, are similar to chicken long rice. Therefore, with the weather getting colder, this is the perfect dish to warm you up at the farmers market.
HANOI BUN CHA — This BBQ dish with noodles and herbs is the best family style Vietnamese meal ever. With all the herbs, grilled and marinated pork meat and noodles combined, it’s extremely satisfying. This was a big hit at the farmers market last week so we are bringing it back again.
CHAO GA — Using J. Ludivico free-range chicken, this is the ultimate Mama Le comfort food: rice porridge with chicken, a slow poached egg, and chicken skin cracklins. Again, perfect food for our colder climes this week.
As always, the full menu and schedule is over at the Farmers Market Menu page.
