I’ve surprisingly never been to The Flying Pig even though they have two other locations (Gastown and Olympic Village). Finally made it out for happy hour in Yaletown!
A few specials they had that evening.
We dropped in on an early Thursday evening (around 5:00pm). People were already taking advantage of happy hour which is weekdays (3:00pm to 6:00pm) and weekends (4:00pm to 6:00pm).
The place was bumping when we left. Seems to be a very popular spot with the work crowd. It’s a cool, hip, intimate spot; perfect for a date or out with friends/co-workers.
The HH menu is solid with 10 dishes and 3 drinks.
The regular menu is bigger with appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts.
TFP lager ($4.75)
Brewed by Russell Brewing. It’s a pretty light beer. Not much flavourwise but it’s cheap.
You get prosciutto, genoa salami and sopprassata.
A bit meagre on how much meat you get but the olives were winners.
Sriracha BBQ chicken drumsticks ($6.50)
Parmesan basil dip. It came with two celery stalks. Didn’t get any basil from the dip. The drumsticks were pretty tender, falling off the bone a la pulled pork style. Tasted more BBQ than sriracha. Decent.
Worth a go during happy hour! Prices are beyond reasonable ($6.00-7.00 range). Easily one of the best HH’s in town. I will come back for the rest of the happy hour menu.
