This is a story of two little piggies: Sir Loin and Miss Piggy.
Two little (But oh…who in reality are not-so-little anymore) piggies, who are psycho porcine cannibals because they enjoy eating their own kind with much gusto. They would go the extra mile or maybe a few more to purchase a kilo or two for their monthly food supply from these hidden porky enclaves in the desert city.
Today was no exception…
These two little piggies decided to come out of their pigsty and let loose in one of their not so favorite Friday places: the Dubai Mall, for a seafood brunch at Bice Mare, Souk Al Bahar. Miss Piggy won a gift certificate from a blog giveaway from the nice lady at Foodiva for a seafood brunch and so she decided to share it with her true love, Sir Loin.
Of course, since the Dubai Mall visit was a once in a blue moon occasion, the two little piggies decided to take advantage of their day out in the sun and roam around the shops. To be honest, they actually needed to move around and burn the calories they’ve consumed from the seafood brunch. Their quite conscious about their girth, you know.
It may have been some twist of fate as these two piggies were led into two new porky enclaves inside the Dubai Mall: The Organic Foods & Cafe and Galeries La Fayette. They were moseying along, browsing through shelf after shelf of food products, then there magically appeared doors like this:
Sir Loin and Miss Piggy were hypnotized and floated through these magical doors / doorway (Apologies for the absence of photos of Organic Foods & Cafe) as if a whole new gravitational force was pulling them towards the porky enclaves. Was there?
Well, aside from the sweet smell of pork perfume infused with spices and ripe moulds, it also didn’t help that the butcher’s staff were in their weekend best, sweet talking Sir Loin and Miss Piggy about the quality of their meaty wares.
They closed the porky sale with free pork sausage samples with five flavors: bangers, chorizo, pork and leek, boerewors (South African sausage) and another flavor (which unfortunately slipped Sir Loin and Miss Piggy’s porcine memories), and free cured pork cuts.
Miss Piggy thought the real clincher was a sample slice of 950 AED per kilo Jamon Iberico, when upon tasting, her knees buckled from buttery and salty melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. Oh, how she still dreams of that ridiculously expensive (but equally, or maybe even more, yummy) slice of ham!
Could you resist such a pork gravitational pull? Sir Loin and Miss Piggy couldn’t. They gave in to their cannibal ways.
And so with bags bursting of more than 2-kilos of pork sausage and Spanish bacon, Sir Loin and Miss Piggy cried “Weeeeeeee! Weeeeeee! Weeeeeeeee!” with glee all the way home…
