Naughty Piglet: New wine bar & rest, Tulse Hill/Brockwell Park

lecker | Mar 31, 201506:54 AM     5

Across from the Hootananny in Brixton, a new wine bar/restaurant opened last Tuesday. My husband and I saw it on our way to Brixton and doubled back after our shopping to try it for lunch. I'm so glad we did; now we have another local place we can dine out at.

Their menu is short, sweet and noted on the blackboard each day. It's a small selection to support their tiny, open kitchen. When we arrived a bit after noon on Sunday, most of their tables were already booked but we snagged a high bar table close to the front of the restaurant.

We started with a bottle of Lulu, an unfiltered wine from France. When Margo, our waitress/owner poured the wine, I was skeptical... But the taste was complex, delicious, and unexpected.

My husband and I shared the following:
Grilled sardines
Pork belly
Lamb legs
Panna cotta
Hazelnut brownie

My favorite dishes were the pork belly and the panna cotta. Something about the crispy pork, the spicy sesame sauce and the crunchy baby lettuce just made me feel good inside. Although I have never been a big fan of panna cotta, I am starting to understand why my husband loves it so much-it's delicious. He always orders panna cotta but this time, he ordered the brownie. Although he had just eaten a brownie at Brindisa a mere one hour prior, he said he needed to try Naughty Piglet's, which was served warm, gooey in the middle and bursting with richness. When I asked which one he preferred, he said "Naughty Piglet's."

It's wonderful to have another winebar/ restaurant in the 'hood that we can choose from when we have nothing in the fridge, which seems to be very often these days.
