Does anyone know a restaurant that regularly serves pork belly in town?

    I've had it at Arthur Clay's several times.

    If you call them, they'll fax you the menu for the night.

      Yesterday's Post-Dispatch ran a Joe Bonwich review of a new Korean restaurant, KoBa, that serves, among other things, pork belly. Here's the review: http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/ente...

        Niche serves pork bellies, and they're fabulous. I'm not certain if they're available on the regular menu, though -- I had them as part of Niche's tasting menu. They were served with a delightful sweet-corn salad and... bacon ice cream. Seriously. An unforgettable dish!

          I've heard they had that, I think Joe Bonwich mentioned it in his article about tasting menus a few weeks back. I found some at the Maplewood Winter Market over the weekend, so now I get to look for recipes.

          The pork belly at Niche is great. I've also had a good version of it at An American Place as a crispy pork belly...kind of a cracklin' meets bacon approach. My other suggestion is for some Chinese restaurants like Wei Hong who serve it with congee. It's been a while since I've had the congee version so I may be mistaken.
