For Monday’s dinner, the star of the suckling pig dinner was, naturally, the small pig who sat at the head of the table.

Served buffet-style, the dishes on the Restuarant Week menu included comforting soy butter rice, tangy popcorn Korean fried chicken and slurp-able Enoki mushroom japchae noodles among other offerings.

On top of starting restaurant week off on a high note, the Monday night dinner featured West 32 soju. Miss Kim is the first restaurant in Ann Arbor to feature the soju brand, which it made sure to highlight in its lemony When Life Gives You Soju cocktail. Smooth enough to be sipped, the West 32 soju is an American craft soju distilled in New York.
