The Flying Pig, Cow, Chicken, Duck and More

Flying Pig Truck is the newest mobile fusion food purveyor on the block. Joining the traffic of other Asian taco trucks and pork bun slingers, Flying Pig aims to blend Asian and Pacific rim flavors with French technique.

I tried the Duck Taco, which definitely was flavorful and had a good balance of salty (sauce) /sweet (orange), soft (duck) / crunch (almond).

I also tried the Spicy Pork Shoulder Taco and Braised Pork Belly Bun. The pork shoulder was a bit dry which could begged more cilantro cream. The pork belly was delicious, but with me it’s hard to screw up pork belly.

Flying Pig Truck Taco and Bun

My food truck experience is pretty limited, so I’m not sure how these stack up to other trucks’ food. On the taco side, they had the wonderful lingering flavor that tacos tend to leave.

With a brick and mortar location opening soon on Beverly across from CBS, this truck will likely test a lot of recipes. As long as the truck’s by my office, that should be easy.

    I hear good things… might pull me back to some trucks… But the pork shtick’s gotta end soon?

    I’d like to see some jackfruit, avocado, artichoke… keep pushing the innovative ingredients in a taco/bun.
