Iron Pig, without a question, is the only authentic American BBQ in Chengdu. Their tongzilin location is very popular and they recently opened a second location outside of the city which is beautiful depending on the weather. Rumor is they will have crawfish boils.
I took the advice and tried Iron Pig last night, I must say it was about 98% less disgusting than Peter’s, and 100% less disappointing.
Prices are very reasonable when compared to other western food in the area, I was shocked at how fair they are and how they don’t try to price gouge you. You get more meat, better tasting food, and something that never happened to me before at Peter’s – a feeling of being full and satisfied. I actually struggled to finish all of my food, something other western places can’t do. I notice western places typically go skimpy on portions and high in price. Not Iron Pig, no complaints aside from the sickly feeling I got from eating too much.
Iron Pig is gonna be my new go-to spot if I need western food.
