“Delicious and quick”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I loved being able to stop in for a quick bite on the trek back up into the town centre from Holyrood House. The pork was tender and delicious.

Came here on a friends recommendation, and it was amazing. Not expensive but very filling. Recommend having haggis with it!

“Pulled pork - now I know what it is. :)”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Incredibly good pork meat between a bun with some addings. A burger that feels more like a perfect full meal. Even locals seemed to like it a lot. I wish we had Oink place in Tallinn.

“Just flat out fantastic pulled pork”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This place claims the best pulled pork this side of the Atlantic, and I am inclined to believe them. I had the pulled pork sandwich on white bread with the sage sauce. It is not the smoky, BBQ-style pulled pork that folks in the States are accustomed to, but, trust me, that is not a problem. This is absolutely fantastic tasting stuff--tender and tasty on soft bread.
