The Flying Pig Olympic Village

Finally we got a summer!  So I took Momsies to The Flying Pig for their Happy…er…’Appy Hour.  It was a good deal.  Food were $6 and drinks (house red or white wine, or house beer) were $4.75.  We went to the Olympic Village location as it was walking distance.

The Flying Pig - Steamed Clams

We had originally wanted the steamed mussels that was on their menu online, but turns out that menu was outdated.  In store was Steamed Clams ($6) in a white wine & herb sauce.  It was very buttery.

The clams were very clean (not sandy) and very sweet.  The broth was also really really good, not overly salty.  I was able to get some bread from our server for dipping.

The Flying Pig - Beef Carpaccio

I also wanted the Beef Carpaccio ($6) which came drizzled with dijon aioli, and served with 3 slices of xvoo crostinis.

The beef was very tender and not at all chewy.  The capers went very well and the aioli was delicious.  Pickled garlic cloves were also a nice touch.  Only wish there were more crostinis though.

The Flying Pig - Truffled Jumbo Macaroni

Lastly to fill me up was the Truffled Jumbo Macaroni ($6) in a 4 cheese cream sauce.  Mom was initially worried about this being too cheesy as she’s not really a fan of cheese.  Luckily the cheese was not overpowering (I didn’t find out which 4 cheeses was in the sauce) and Mom ended up enjoying this too.

Drinks-wise Mom ordered a beer and I had a white wine.  All in all it was a lovely afternoon and a great meal.
