Where to get the best pork belly
What are your favorite restaurants to get pork belly in the city?
I dont care how its cooked. I dont care if its in a salad, sandwich, app, main, or even dessert.
I love this stuff, and I want some interesting suggestions on places that use it well.
Not a restaurant, but for home use, get the black pork belly (kurobuta) slices from Nijiya Supermarket (the SF location is in Japantown). They have three kinds. One kind that is very thinly sliced that you can use shabu shabu style (quick dip in boiling water) and you can add whatever sauce you want, or you can stir fry it with a lot of garlic and soy sauce for a quick fix. There's another cut that is a tad bit thicker that they offer that might be more appropriate for sukiyaki, and finally they offer a nice side block (uncut) that if you stew/simmer it, can be supreme (then you can cut it yourself to whatever thickness you want).
I remember reading somewhere that Sozai in the Sunset has pork belly grilled dish or skewer (Japanese style) that's interesting.
