We stopped in the night before the Flying Pig Half Marathon to "carb up", and after a short 15 minute wait where we sat at the bar, the hostess escorted us to a table. It was a crazy busy weekend in the towns of Cincinnati/Covington as there was the Flying Pig, a Reds game, and the Kentucky Derby (which I think makes all of Kentucky busy). The bar was busy with an eclectic group of people--all age ranges, (family friendly too), along with people dressed to nines for the Derby down to the average joes. We ordered the scotch egg, and fried pickles for an appetizer. Both were tasty. The fried pickles were long spears, with a nice flaky breading, and were served with a siracha sauce. The scotch egg was one hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage, rolled in panko crumbs and fried, served sliced in quarters. For our entrees we ordered the Bacon and cabbage (which is two pork belly slabs served in a creamy sauce with cabbage and potatoes), the fish and chips--tasty but pretty standard, and the montecristo (two slices of french toast sandwich of turkey and bacon, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and a sweet strawberry glaze drizzled over the top) which is very sweet fork type of sandwich and was really yummy, and served with a side of sweet potato fries. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun. On a side note we got to watch the Kentucky Derby--none of the horses we picked won.
