A Scrumptious Evening at the Royal Pig Pub
~ Dining review by guest blogger Tanya S. 

The Royal Pig Pub has taken Las Olas by Storm - Open for lunch and dinner they are also featuring an outstanding value in the "Dine Out Lauderdale" menu from October 1 - Nov 7 2013.

Guest Blogger and Ft. Lauderdale scene maker Tanya S. had this to say about a recent dinner at The Royal Pig.

 

Our evening at the Royal Pig on Las Olas began as we were cordially greeted by the hostess ....

Just as soon as we were seated outside... our waitress Denise appeared and took our drink order...

The wine selection was impressive - I ordered a glass of Chateau Ste Michelle Sauvignon Blanc - and my friend ordered a glass of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay...

As the wine was delivered to the table Chef Shawn Cosgrobe came over to introduce himself ...

His recommendations was excellent...

My friend absolutely loved the Organic Parmesan Fries w/ truffle oil ...Chef Shawn was very accommodating to my Organic Fries order "no cheese - thank you"... Why is it always so difficult to stop eating fries...

Kale salad with pine nuts & currants...tossed to perfection with olive oil, lemon and salt...Chef Shawn enlightened us that Kale is best cut julienne style to avoid the bitterness...who knew !! Our next appetizer - House Smoked Baby Back Ribs - atop braised brussels sprouts sautéed in apple juice and butter...The ribs were so tender - the meat just fell right off the bone ...

 

The ambience was so relaxing - we watched Monday football and enjoyed our food ...

 

Our waitress Denise... who by the way had a beautiful smile - was very attentive ...

Chef Shawn had recommended the Braised Pork Shoulder "Porcetta" for my friend and the Organic Pan Roasted Salmon with a smoked tomato puttanesca...Delicious !!!! Delicious !!!!

Now for dessert -Bread pudding made with croissants served in cast iron ...drizzled with salted caramel and chocolate ... tossed with pecans & blueberries with a scoop of vanilla ice cream... the texture of all these ingredients was tantalizing our taste buds!!!

 

We had a very scrumptious evening at the Royal Pig !!!
