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.
Be a part of it! Send me whatever fascinating or delicious pork-related stuff you've got. I'll credit you (with a link to whatever site you choose), so not only will you be advancing the cause, you'll also be earning undying glory. Drop me an email at kasiab at gmail dot com. Warning: in case the AD FREE banner above doesn't make it clear enough -- I'm not interesting in promoting your product unless I actually like it. If you've got some pork-related thing I think is cool, I'll happily put up a post about it. Emails written in pseudo-enthusiastic robotic corporate ad-speak creep me out; please don't send them to me.
