Best Use of Pork Products Minneapolis 2014 - Pig Ate My Pizza
Pig Ate My Pizza, brought to you by the team behind Travail, goes to great lengths to prove that pork is more than just the other white meat. These guys and gals serve it up in all its most delicious forms, expected and unexpected: pork belly rillette, amazingly fatty-in-a-good-way spareribs inspired by the flavors of a Bloody Mary, cornflour-dusted and flash-fried tenderloin, lardons the size of a baby's fist, and the crispiest ham and cheese croquettes, known around these parts as "hog tots." Aside from the kooky pizzas (think sour cream and onion chips, fiddlehead ferns, and pies served from underneath a dome of smoke) that are the focus, PAMP in Robbinsdale makes an ever-changing lineup of charcuterie, which goes especially well with beer while you wait for a seat at one of the communal tables, whets the meaty palate quite effectively for your pizza course, and is an irresistible way to bring a tentative vegetarian back to the dark side. Not that we'd even have to force them.
