Yes, you read that right—Two restaurants in one entry!!! We were initially supposed to have dinner at The Flying Pig in Eastwood, but right after we stepped inside and were handed three menu books instead of the usual one, we learned that this resto was connected to the Red Crab branch next door. However, I’ll be focusing more on The Flying Pig since, like I said earlier, it’s the resto that I intended to review in the first place. ^^;
Flying Pig’s exterior…
… And Red Crab’s interior.

Red Crab’s Menu: Seafood sa lambat, Crabs, Pica-pica, Sabaw & Palayok tales, Salad, Lapu-lapu, Prawns, Seafood, Sooo karne, Pasta, Seafood & vegetables, Rice, Desserts, and Beverages.
Crispy Pork Chops. We didn’t expect that it would be this huge, hehe. The sauce was the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. This dish also came with a huge bed of rice, but unlike what happened at Grams, I didn’t mind gobbling down the whole thing.
For my drink, I had their refreshing Lemon Mint Cooler.
Bagnet Sisig. It wasn’t too bad, but sometimes I kept wondering if I was eating chicken sisig or pork sisig.
Meanwhile, my parents ordered Red Crab’s Seafood Kare Kare.
My overall eating experience with these dining spots was just alright. The food wasn’t that amazing, but it wasn’t that crappy either. Nevertheless, I would recommend this restaurant if you want to spend a fun-filled evening dining with your family or friends.
The Flying Pig & Red Crab are both located at G/F Eastwood Mall, Veranda, Orchard Rd Bagumbayan, Quezon City.
