Pulled pork, Brisket, signature sandwiches and sides. Pig Guy NYC brings the same love for pork that won him fans at NY Mets and Brooklyn Cyclones homes games, where Pig Guy had his first stands.
In search of some cheap eats in the Meatpacking District, I found myself at the Pig Guy at Gansevoort Market. Two guys in front of me were ordering something called "bacon on a stick" which the Pig Guy is known to serve up at baseball games. The skewered slab of bacon is slathered with a maple sriracha sauce. At seven bucks, it's the perfect snack food. Tempting indeed. But I was after something a bit more substantial.
So I decided to go for a pulled pork sandwich. The pork is piled high and topped with a spectacular thai chili sauce. It is served on two thick slices of white bread with a side of Red Hook Slaw. Eating it as a sandwich can be a tricky task so I wound up using a knife and fork. Every bite was scrumptious.
Other offerings include BBQ ribs, smoked brisket and a "Chorizo Dog" with provolone, chopped red onion with a chimmicurri mayo. The staff's great at Pig Guy making this the perfect spot to pig out.
