Do pigs really fly? Darned if I know, but at the The Flying Pig in Asheboro their signature Pig Wings did fly into my mouth. Not on their own, of course. With a little assist from my fork those tender, juicy and smothered pork shank angels danced across my tongue and right into my belly. It was almost heaven.
The Flying Pig has a good selection of sandwiches on their menu. I was going back and forth between the pulled pork BBQ sandwich and the cheesesteak. Nostalgia and a bit of homesickness won out, so the Philly cheesesteak it was. You never know how that’s going to go when you’re away from the cheesesteak capital of the US. Usually, I find that it’s the bread that isn’t right. A hoagie roll should have a good crust on the outside and be soft and a bit chewy on the inside. The Flying Pig cheesesteak was pretty darn good and the roll was right. It certainly satisfied my tastebuds and made me feel a little bit like I was home.
Don’t wait until pigs fly! Get on over yonder to The Flying Pig and try their signature pig wings and what ever tickles your tastebuds.
