Trailer Treasure: Three Little Pigs

I have long been a fan of Three Little Pigs and was quite surprised to discover that I'd never written about them, despite the fact that they've been in business for many years. This unassuming little trailer is barely decorated and doesn't look like much from the outside, but the guy on the inside, Raymond Tatum, is a longtime Austin chef whose résumé includes a 12-year gig as the executive chef at Jeffrey's. Happily (for me), Chef Raymond's menu tilts toward Asian flavors, and nothing on the menu will set you back more than $12. Their recent move to the patio of the Aristocrat Lounge (formerly the Poodle Dog Lounge, for you longer-term Austinites) means that they are now in my neck of the woods. I couldn't be more thrilled. The flavors here play right to my palate, the dishes are always interesting, and their location means you can bring your pup along and that you can enjoy a Live Oak Hefeweizen with your meal. What else do you need?

Three Little Pigs - Black Eyed Pea Salad w/ Crispy Pork Belly
Black Eyed Pea Salad with Crispy Pork Belly, Arugula, and Gorgonzola (usually comes with pickled beets, but my husband hates pickled things and I hate beets, so this one is beet-less at our request).

I highly recommend that you point the hair on your chinny chin chin toward Three Little Pigs.

  1. Well, it looks delicious even if you didn't get the beets! ;) So jealous they're in your 'hood now!

  2. I just love beets, especially pickled ones, so I'll definitely have them in my Black Eyed Pea salad if ever i get to visit Three Little Pigs. I have a friend there in Texas, so she'll have to bring me there and pay for everything as well (hopefully!).
