        Taiwan Cafe has one (braised bacon-cut pork with soft bean curd) on their menu. There are several others on the menu that they may make with pork belly - their staff is very helpful about describing dishes. It's a bit soft and rich for me but it's nice to have a few pieces as part of a larger spread.

        Also, a non-chinese suggestion - Dok Bua has crispy pork with some green (usually chinese broccoli, sometimes something else) -- it's pork belly, *deep-fried* until crisp. Outrageously good.
