Whistle Pig Bistro

A new find in Damascus, Virginia, the Whistle Pig Bistro is a new and unique restaurant that you do not want to miss.  Located near the Creeper Trail, next door to JC’s Outdoor Bike Shop you will find items such as fried pickles and hummus tortilla chips at reasonable prices.  The decor

could use some improvement, but the restaurant is clean with fast service and a sunny patio on the back with outdoor dining near the water.

My recommendation is the homemade hummus sandwich with cucumber, spouts and avocado and a side of sweet potato fries served with curry ketchup. This combination is excellent with the Woodchuck Draft Cider. My husband, Jeff was even happy, as they also serve Guinness Beer. I know what you are thinking, humus? spouts? You will have to trust me on this one.  Your palate will thank you.   While you are there, take a bike ride on the Creeper trial and work up your appetite.
