Edison bulbs, exposed brick walls, and a friendly staff. It’s everything a hip, new restaurant strives to have. The Iberian Pig, located in Decatur, offers this and much more.
The Iberian Pig’s menu practically replicates what one would find in the markets of Spain, truly transporting customers into a foreign, yet inviting environment. Cured meats, a Spanish tradition, are what make this spot worthy of your time. Prosciutto is so passé. Here, Serrano Ham, smoked chorizo, and acorn fed Iberian pig are served thinly sliced on rustic wooden boards. The fatty marbling of the meat alone is enough to mesmerize the eyes, but surely not enough to keep away from a hungry mouth.
A vast array of imported artisanal cheeses complements the charcuteria and an expertly selected list of wines help to complete any afternoon or evening at this Spanish hideaway. The restaurant’s mixologists are also happy to serve up some classic cocktails or some more creative compositions. However, our top pick: the traditional sangria with delicately muddled fruit, wine and spirits. It’s always a great evening on the patio of the Iberian Pig on a warm summer night.
Pork Cheek Tacos
Sometimes the best item on a menu is among the cheapest. The Iberian Pig serves tacos España style. Super tender, slowly braised pork cheeks, fire roasted corn, a tangy avocado lime crema, and a touch of peppery arugula brighten up the dish. You get four tacos for $8, a deal in this, or any other neighborhood.
