Regalito is announcing the Grand Opening of our latest effort, PIGALITO. Same location, same great flavor and it’s all about the Pig!
Every Tuesday, beginning October 5th, PIGALITO will honor free-range, sustainably sourced pig farming and the market stalls which are a staple of eating and shopping in Mexico by slow roasting a half Niman Ranch hog, and bringing it into the kitchen for immediate preparation and display.
PIGALITO’s menu will be inspired by the markets of Mexico that millions of people converge on daily, and especially on Saturdays. Where stalls are filled with local chefs producing great food, passages are crammed with people doing their daily shopping amongst bins overflowing with chiles and fruits and butchers are selling meat that was on the hoof just hours before.
PIGALITO was inspired by Chef Thomas Pena’s recent trip to Des Moines, Iowa for the 12th Annual Niman Ranch Hog Farmer Appreciation Dinner. The farmers were honored for their commitment to raising free-range, sustainably sourced hogs.
PIGALITO’s simple pork focused menu will consist of Tacos de Carnitas, Tortas de Puerco, Gorditas, and other staples of the market stalls.
Please join us on October 5th, from 5-10pm, to help us celebrate PIGALITO’s Grand Opening!
