Five Things to Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Categories: Weekend Eats

Bink's Midtown and Café Bink celebrate every weekend with whole roast pig.

All-You-Can-Eat Pig Roast at Bink's Café & Bink's Midtown

If you picked up a copy of Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, the latest book by food anthropologist Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma), you probably have an insatiable hankering for whole-hog barbecue. The first 120 pages are dedicated to the practice of roasting meat over a fire with descriptions like, "but it was the occasional shard of crackling dispersed through the mixture that really made the dish extraordinary: a tidy, brittle, irreducible packet of salt, fat, and wood smoke."

Here in metro Phoenix, you can sink your teeth into this traditional carnivore's delight at Bink's Midtown and Bink's Café on Saturdays and Sundays. Pig on the Patio is an all-you-can-eat offering consisting of a bread, a starch, a veggie, and plenty o' meat for $25. Themes change weekly, so expect anything from Cajun to Indian cuisine. Reservations are highly recommended; call 480-488-9796 for Café Bink in Carefree, or 602-388-4874 for Bink Midtown.
