Inglewood locals can’t get enough of Black Pig Deli’s housemade charcuterie and small batch goodies, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the team has decided to take the plunge and open Little Pig Eatery.
Opening on Monday 12 October in the space next to Black Pig Deli on Beaufort Street in Inglewood, you’ll be treated to a bunch of the goodies you already know and love—like the pork rillette toasties and Reuben sandwiches which will be available on the dine-in menu—as well as a few new treats.
The menu will feature loads of cheese, charcuterie, toasties, continental sandwiches, homemade pies and sausage rolls as well as sweet treats and coffee—including cold brew on tap—to keep you going all day long. The charcuterie, cheese and pickle selection will be constantly changing thanks to charcutier Adam Bielawski and you can expect to see a few native ingredients on the menu that you might not come across all that often.
Little Pig Eatery will also play host to a number of long table events along the lines of food matching, charcuterie and cheese tasting and small batch guest winery, brewery and distillery tastings.
If you want to keep things more casual, head in on Saturdays and Sundays when it will be BYO so you can enjoy a bottle you’ve been saving while you pick at a nice big plate of cheese and meat.
Just like Black Big Deli, Little Pig will have a huge focus on sustainability with 100% biodegradable packaging and dedicated bins for separate packaging.
Part-owned by Gerry Matera, Gather Foods (the parent-brand of Black Big Deli, Little Big Eatery and Poach Pear) has a strong focus on creating opportunities for young Indigenous people.
“We are already employing Indigenous people and we’re working with the Matera Foundation in offering opportunities for other long-term unemployed youths to come on board, particularly in front-facing customer roles, which is something you don’t really see around hospitality.”—co-owner Marissa Bielawski.
There’s really nothing not to like about Little Pig Eatery, but if you need more convincing, they’ll be giving away free coffee to the first 200 customers through the door on Monday 12 October.
Open Monday to Friday, 6am to 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 6am to 5pm, you’ll find them at 890 Beaufort Street in Inglewood.
While you're out enjoying all the new goodness going on in Perth, you might want to consider gifting your Melburnian mates a delicious degustation that they can enjoy in lockdown.
