Looking for the best pork belly dish

We will be in New Orleans next Monday and Tuesday night. Curious to try pork belly since it's not a dish ever featured around southwest Florida where we live. Is there anything that is just absolutely mouthwatering delicious?

  1. Herbsaint's is excellent.

      OK, here's a sleeper for ya: a "BLT" at Lilette on Magazine Street. Lunchtime item, a sandwich consisting of crisp pork belly (instead of bacon), roasted tomatoes, crisp lettuce and a homemade mayo. With chips. Oh my, what a sandwich! Keep it in mind...

        Herbsaint is already on our radar. Since their open Mondays, that just maybe the one......BLT's are my husbands fav sandwich, may have to sneak him back one since he's at a conference through the daytimes.

          Melissssa (lotta s-es!): bring him one of those bad boys, you'll get a shiny new ring!

      2. I really enjoyed the one I had at Feast -- Crispy Roasted Pork Belly, Potato Cake and Red Cabbage
        with Apples.

        And if you want general all kinda porky goodness (ribs, bellies, ears, tongues, sausages, etc.), check out Cochon for lunch or dinner or Butcher for lunch or snacks one day.

        1. Thanks for the feed back this site is amazing!

          1. Emeril's offers a house made Porchetta sandwich on their lunch menu.

            1. Try the pork and peach appetizer at Commander's Palace, it could be one of the best things I've eaten that isn't Texas BBQ. If you want a pork belly dish that makes you want to drive 9 hours back to NOLA just to taste it again, then you want to try this one.
