Their signature dish is wood oven roasted pig face. The rolled pig’s face is braised, roasted then sliced. It is served with sunny side egg, tamarind, coriander, red wine maple and potato sticks.

This dish has a lot of flavors and is complex in texture. You will see how well it is prepared, once you taste it. It is by far the best dish at Girl & the Goat.

You can visit there even only to have this fantastic dish!
