The Pig and the Lady

The Pig and the Lady was one of the first on the island to serve a ph​​ở French dip, and while you’ll find a few other versions around, we think this is still the best. While the sandwich is only available for lunch, it’s worth stopping by for a midday meal powered by this braised brisket-stuffed creation that’s spiked with a Thai basil chimichurri and comes with a side of phở broth for dipping. This spot is also one of our favorite group dinner destinations on the island, and not just because of the loud industrial chic dining room and The Big Trouble in Little China-themed bathroom. Vietnamese and other Southeast Asian ingredients collide in dishes like baked escargot in a seafood curry sauce, clam and rau ram linguine, and the “wrap battle,” a ssam-style feast centered on a big hunk of meat. Be sure to save room for the soft serve swirl, which always features different flavors.
