Where in DC: Pork Belly

randomjay Jun 17, 2009 09:57 AM

After having what might be the world's best Rillons at Bar Boulud in NY last weekend, I can't stop craving crispy, slow cooked pork belly. What restaurants in the DC area do good pork belly?

    Not strictly pork belly, and definitely not cheap, but The Source has two amazing pork dishes that involve pork belly. One is an appetizer that mixes duck and pork confit, and the other is a main dish with pork three ways, including belly. Both have asian influences. Amazing stuff.

        Corduroy, without question.

        Proof, too.

          Is it on regular rotation on Corduroy's menu again? I hadn't seen it in my last few trips there.

            I was answering hypothetically.

              You got me excited :(

              I did find pork belly at HMart for $1.89/lb and the Corduroy recipe is on the Washingtonian magazine's website, so theoretically I could just make it myself.
