This is some of the most craveable food in Boston. And wait till you see where we found it.
Burgers… Pizzas… Melted Mars Bar Sandwiches… They're all served at The Squealing Pig. That's right, The Squealing Pig. If you want to pig out, this is the place.
It has everything a great pub should... Charming Irish waitresses… Over a hundred beers… And a fifty foot bar.
Diarmuid O'Neill – Owner, The Squealing Pig: “We got a fine long bar there, but you can have good food at a bar.”
At The Squealing Pig, the food is better than good, and all the comfort foods you love are taken to the next level.
Meaty Chicken Wings are coated in an orange chipotle sauce. The half-pound Pig Burger is piled high with thick cut bacon and gorgonzola. And there's and an all you can eat Cape Cod Fish Fry, with golden breaded shrimp, scallops, and cod.
Want some fries with that? At The Squealing Pig, there are three kinds, all handcut and cooked to order. The plain fries are addictive on their own, and down right dangerous when doused with vinegar. The Curry Fries are a sweet and spicy mix, made from secret recipe. And the Tuscan Fries are smothered in Parmesan, porcini, and black truffle oil.
Like lots of pubs, The Squealing Pig serves pizza, but these are no ordinary bar pies. Toppings include Grilled Shrimp and Chorizo with tropical salsa…
Proscuitto and Arugula… Or the ultimate comfort food feast, Mashed Potato, Linguica, and Mustard Aioli.
At The Squealing Pig, even the sandwiches are something special. Here, they're called Toasties, and they've developed a loyal following.
Sara O'Neill – Owner, The Squealing Pig: “People at the start when we first opened were kind of a bit weary of them and would say ‘ummm…. What's a Toastie?' Now they're hugely popular.”
There are about ten toasted sandwiches to choose from. Whether you want a simple Cheddar, Tomato, and Onion. A sweet combination of Ham, Pineapple, and Pickles. Or the indulgent Proscuitto, Fig, and Gorgonzola… These Toasties will make you feel warm all over.
Of course you MUST leave room for dessert. And at The Squealing Pig, there's only one option: The Mars Bar Toastie.
Diarmuid O'Neill – Owner, The Squealing Pig: “We only needed one dessert once we got that. It's all there on the plate.”
This sinful treat features toasted waffles stuffed with a European Mars bar and sliced bananas. Just one bite of the warm melted chocolate, sweet bananas, and smooth caramel and you'll be in hog heaven.
Sara O'Neill – Owner, The Squealing Pig: “It's like chocolatey and gooey and it's good way to end a meal.”
If you want to get nice and toasty, this is Boston's best place to pig out… The Squealing Pig, a Phantom Gourmet… Hidden Jewel.
