Ahhh…food trucks. They’re convenient, easily accessible, and in some cases, a great value for gourmet food. It’s almost impossible to drive anywhere without seeing one of the many food trucks swarming in densely populated areas…and NOW you don’t have to necessarily depend on Twitter to help guide you to your next food truck meal. We are seeing a few of the trucks actually opening brick & mortar shops!

The Flying Pig is the next to take their food to an actual restaurant: The Flying Pig Café opens on July 16th!

From Grub Street’s website:

Opening day at Joe Kim’s new cafe will find free pork belly buns, beer, and toarashi fries given out from 5:00-8:00 P.M. Like a porky version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s golden tickets, a few of the pork belly buns will contain markings that grant people admission to a whole pork butt dinner. In addition, anyone dressed like a pig (we think they mean an actual swine, not just a slob) gets a $50 gift certificate and the first 50 people to come to the opening get a free 50% off coupon. So, what’s on the menu?

The restaurant will serve signatures like peanut butter carnitas, crunchy tofu bun, duck fried rice, spicy black mussels, and scallops “con” spicy mango.
