SPIRIT!

Filipino-style Pig Roast

The fourth dinner installation will be the first Filipino-style whole pig roast hosted by Spirit in Lawrenceville. Come celebrate with us at the best place in Pittsburgh for social gatherings, with great food and a fun social atmosphere. Admission will be limited with food and drink included. 

Some of the traditional dishes have been adapted to utilize what is unique to Pittsburgh. Keeping the integrity and spirit of the dish is greatly considered in developing a more contemporary menu that is unique to Filipino flavors. The whole pig is utilized into other components to showcase unfamiliar dishes. This is not strictly traditional and is based on the household that the chef is more familiar growing up.
