You can never put too much pork in your mouth as far as I’m concerned. – Lewis Black
Two Little Pigs caught my attention with promises of porky breakfasts and locals highly rating the coffee they churn out – quite a feat when you are located close to numerous other revered coffee establishments. I was in the mood for a Sunday food coma, a ritual if it were, and Two Little Pigs seemed to offer the meat and cheese laden meals which I so craved.
To start, I opted to sip on a chai latte. The chai latte was good, but didn’t have the complex spice component that marks a good Brunswick chai. I have only heard good things about the coffee here but unfortunately I arrived pre-caffeinated.
Since cheese and meat is a combination difficult to pass up, I decided that the Philly Cheese Steak would be a sure way to induce a delightfully decadent food coma. The pan fried beef rump was dripping in cheesey goodness and the slight tang of the onions made for a really well rounded heart attack. It was quite a struggle to keep the innards from oozing out of the sweet crusty bun, and this is definitely not a meal to order on a first date or if you have a fear of food spillage in public. Personally, the messier the better when it comes to a philly cheese roll.
Across from me the very on trend Cubano had been proudly plonked on the wooden charcuterie. Pulled pork, pickles, oozey cheese, splashes of mustard and ham, all wedged between two buttery slabs of bread. Whilst this was not as striking in flavour as the Philly Cheese Steak, it was a beautiful medley of complimentary profiles. The crunchy, vinegary pickles highlighted the sweetness of the pulled pork.
Two Little Pigs cheekily plays a homage to charcuterie abundant meals, all brimming with flavour and decadence. Be mindful that after devouring a breakfast at Two Little Pigs, a post food nap may be well deserved!
