[Bangkok] “Why call The Girl and The Pig?” The owner couple then pointed at each other, “She’s the girl…well, I am the pig.” While they fell in love with each other, you may fall in love with this brunch place.
The Girl And The Pig is a café bistro at Bangkok’s Central Embassy which found some popularity offering brunch items, pastries and American style food.
The owners who are some-proclaimed foodies went to study classic pastry arts and wine tasting, and eventually wanted to open a place they can call home.
Therefore, you would also notice the entire set-up is rather fairy-tale like – two swings chairs at the front as though you are in the garden, cottage inspired wooden furnishing with rustic brick walls.
It was like entering a story book.
Walking in, you would be enticed by a whole row of freshly baked pastries and cakes, such as Spicy Sausage Rolls, Bacon and Leek Quiche, Apply & Mixed Berry Pie, Carrot Cup Cake, Chocolate Hazelnut Tart, and Apple Tart Tatin.
Good to know that all their baked products are made with no preservatives, trans-fat, floor enhancer, artificial flavours and colouring.
Some of the main courses were disappointing though, in comparison. The Rome-Style Carbonara (280 baht, SGD$11.20) was unfortunately dry and clumpy.
The brunch items you should try – The Egg Benedict with Crab Cake (240 Baht, SGD$9.60) and Steak, Egg and Biscuit (350 Baht, SGD$14.00). Rather pricey for Bangkok’s standard though (Well, I guess Central Embassy is meant for the richer.)
Crab cake was a brilliant accompaniment to the eggs ben, other than the usual salmon or ham. The cakes were deep-fried with thick, fresh, and tasty fillings, which you can use to conveniently sweep clean the oozing yolk.
Instead of the usual soft bun and minced pork patty for burgers, The Girl And The Pig used homemade buttermilk biscuit with grilled sirloin steak fitted deliciously and sumptuously in the middle.
