Ziggy Piggy

We're almost at the end - Restaurant week continues! And go enter the Bento Supplies Giveaway while you're at it!

It takes a lot for me to drive up the 2 freeway. Luckily my friend Maria lives up there and she promised to take me to lunch at a place that would make the drive worthwhile. She was right.

Oinkster is well known but I've never been able make it there, even when I lived in that area. Odd. It's a small place with great food - the sandwiches and burgers are where it's at. But the fries? Oh dear - those are AMAZING. Belgian fries - crispy yet tender served with the most perfect garlic aioli.

I've been back with the kids since my first visit, and every time I get the pulled pork sandwich. Sweet and delicious slow cooked pork on a soft bun, and the cabbage inside adds just the right crunch. The pastrami is just as amazing too.

An odd additon to the menu is the Ube shake. (All the Filipinos in the house say HEY! HO!)

Ube is taro root. If that doesn't put you off, maybe the fact that it is purple would do it. I'm not a fan of weird things either but this shake is amazing. Sweet, delicious and of course made with the best ice cream in the city - Fosselman's. You can't go wrong.

Guy Fieri featured Oinkster on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and left his mark accordingly. (As a side note, at Comic Con there were a lot of cosplayers that I couldn't tell if they were supposed to be Guy Fieri or Naruto. Just sayin'.)

Stop by Oinkster for some amazing sandwiches and be brave enough to try the Ube shake. Everyone's doing it, kids.
