Yang Jing Bang Pop-up: The Battle of the Balls @ The Grumpy Pig
In a battle of the balls at The Grumpy Pig, Yang Jing Bang Lion’s Heads go up against good old Scottish Faggots. The menu comes from Nat Alexander’s new restaurant pop-up ‘Yang Jing Bang’, a kind of Englishman’s take on Shanghai cuisine, and as an English chef he seems to know his stuff when it comes to pork. Tonight’s meal set includes the two battling balls plus sides, drinks are extra.
