Homemade Bacon at Double Li

Very tasty. We'd read about this one, maybe, in Time Out Chicago (it was a Best Thing They Ate All Year in 2009 I think?), but it was called pork belly there, and there's nothing on the menu that says pork belly. There's home made bacon and there's pork stomach. We ordered the former, and this is what arrived:

A plate of thin slices of chewy bacon in a pile of snap peas and sliced leeks, flavored with garlic, ginger, and I think some Chinese five spice? Anyhow, it was great.

You can get your own at Double Li, 228 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60616.
