Kingston Eats: Chez Piggy Restaurant & Bar

Who has not heard of Chez Piggy and Pan Chancho in the Kingston area?  I do love Pan Chancho very much🙂 Chez piggy has a charming patio (well decorated according to season, and the tree blossoms in spring) and the restaurant is built in a former limestone stable.  Despite having two floors, the restaurant is fully packed at lunch and dinner times.  Just like windmills and Pan Chancho, the diverse menu has notes from many different cuisines.  I think the food was good in general – I might have been expecting a bit more for all the hype about it – I don’t think it was fabulously outstanding but they were solid good food.  I also don’t like that the bread basket was served cold.  I do think Chez Piggy has a very nice and warming atmosphere, so it maybe a lovely restaurant to come for special occasions and enjoy the food. However I do want to say it’s overpriced for what you get.  P.S. You can buy their cookbook😉

℘ Chez piggy is a member of “Local Food Local Chef”, a Kingston initiative to promote the area as a destination of culinary tourism.
