Ba Bar

UPDATE: Chef Chris Michael says it will be on the menu next week.

Ba Bar in Seattle should have a Mangalitsa special on the menu any minute now.

On Monday I dropped by late and talked with server Mike (left) and bartender Fairness (right).

Mike used to serve at Monsoon. He's a big fan of Mangalitsa neck. In fact, he was working at Monsoon when I last ate Mangalitsa neck there.

Servers are very important. If they like the food and think their guests will like it, they'll market it to them.

At Monsoon, Mike discovered that telling customers with a sense of humor that Mangalitsa was "luxury pork" was the easiest way to sell it. We laughed about that.
