Flying Pig (Olympic Village)

Location: Olympic Village, 127 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver, BC

Let's start this review off by saying that I only came here for 'Appy Hour' and not for a full meal. They have about 10 food selections ranging from salad, poutine, pull pork sliders, Mac and cheese. Drink specials is their house lager for under $5 and a house red and white wine for around $6. 

What did we order:

3x house white

1 house lager

Beat and bresaola salad

Classic poutine

First off, the beer is rather meh, but if lagers are your thing, then maybe you'll like it. The house white wine was pretty decent, I'd probably order that one again if I went there for another appy hour. 

Classic poutine, one word to describe it. SALTY. Unpleasantly salty, fries were ok but not as good as Cascade. What made it salty was the gravy and the type of cheese that they used on top.

I had a bite of the Beat and bresaola salad and it was very uneventful in my mouth. Hard pass on that one.

My friends ordered other things like beef short rib croquette and a salmon cakes, I didn't try those so I can't comment.

Overall, I thought it was meh. The service was excellent, patio was heated but the traffic noise is unbearable.
