bearded pig barbecue

Madrid | Aug 1, 2012 04:50 PM

went today, they opened Monday. Drove past it the first time. They are indeed next to Dosa Temple a bit west down somerville ave. past the Market Basket. No sign at the top of the building. so easy to miss...we were told they still need permission from the city...a banner sign hanging below the window blocked by parked cars but their logoed van was out front.

we tried the pulled pork with vinegar slaw and bearded baked beans. We like the pork a lot....low on the smoke a bit ..... hot sauce very good...he doesn't have the NC vinegar sauce yet but the "original" sauce very good as well. We can always doctor it up with more vinegar. Bearded baked beans least four kinds of beans with a nice kicky sauce. We liked the NC vinegar slaw as well...nice and crunchy, no mayo, lots of black pepper...I would have prefer a bit more vinegar but I'm from NC and more vinegar is a big change for most...I do dislike creamy cole slaw and this is a healthy alternative.

We'll be back...they have banana pudding which we didn't try, want to try the ribs, etc. and some other sides. Nice set up for eat in. Great addition to Somerville! Prefer it to Redbones by far!
