The Flying Pig (in Gastown): 'Appy Hour, $6 per Dish

Share on Google Plus

The Flying Pig offers 'Appy Hour every day between 4pm and 6pm at all of their three locations in Vancouver (Gastown, Yaletown & Village). I met my friend N around 430, which was kind of awkward time for dinner, but the perfect timing for Happy Hour! So, we decided to try Flying Pig nearby. The Flying Pig Gastown location is only about 5 minutes away from Waterfront Skytrain Station, and one minute away from the Gastown steam clock! I personally love this area :)

Their 'Appy Hour menu selection is not extensive, but still good enough to try different small items. $6 per dish is very affordable, and the portion is not too bad. Beer and house wine are only $4.75.
 TFP Lager ($4.75)
Beef Carpaccio ($6) was pretty good to start the meal - light, small appetizer. It had a few thin slices of beef, topped with crostini, fresh greens, dijon aioli, capers and garlic.
 Steamed Clams ($6) was cooked in flavorous broth, white wine and herbs.
Crispy Salmon Cakes ($6) were a bit fishy, but I liked its perfectly deep-fried breading. Very crunchy and crispy, and went well with the housemade tartar sauce.
 Beef Short Rib Croquette ($6) had a decent amount of short ribs with mashed potatoes.
Truffled Jumbo Macaroni ($6) was better than I expected. It's not the normal junky macaroni & cheese! A few drops of truffle oils make this dish wonderfully flavourful and rich, especially when it's covered with extra 4 cheese cream sauce! Ummmmm
Sriracha BBQ Chicken Drumstick ($6) wasn't my favourite but N loved it because of strong BBQ sauce. It came with two celery sticks and parmesan basil dip. We both agreed that the chicken was a bit over-cooked as the meat was tough and hard.
