O‘ahu’s newest pop-up restaurant is communal-style dining at its best

Honolulu’s culinary scene isn’t tame, to say the least. Funky food trucks and lingerie coffee carts are pretty normal these days, and the Island’s newest addition to the food scene is an innovative pop-up restaurant called The Pig and The Lady (TP&TL) with Vietnamese influences.

The Weekly’s food and drink editor, Martha Cheng (who is the brains behind many of Oahu’s fascinating food trends), is one of the partners behind TP&TL. She and her partner, chef Andrew Le, set up shop in a modest, well-known space: Hank’s Hot Dogs by day, hip eatery at night.

The menu consists of a five-course pre-fixe meal ($55), served two to four nights a week. Their fourth and most current menu (as well as applicable dining dates) are listed on their website. Guests can check on upcoming dining schedules and purchase tickets online (reservations required). Previous menu items have included taro croquette, braised pork belly, poached quail eggs and coconut pandan toast.

Don’t forget to BYOB.
