Slow roasted mangalitsa belly – thick cut mangalitsa pork belly, onion, garlic, Dijon mustard, spring onion salad. Like an ex-Eagle from BMT who was posted to Guards and just started gymming, this is half chewy lean torso and half slightly caramelized and burnt fatty bits. Essentially the perfect char siew and good on its own, but the add-ons on the side give it a tingly cold tanginess. 4.2/5
