Behind the Scenes

Smoked cheddar fries
"I love Khyber's Southern version of Quebec's poutine. It's so addictive, dressed with smoked Cheddar cheese, debris gravy, and bacon. With a few beers from their excellent tap list, you can't go wrong."
Sardine sandwich
"You can't ask for anything better than chopped sardines in a mustard mayo with pickled eggs, onions, and lettuce for just $2. It's salty, sweet, sour, and bitter all in three bites."

Roast pork Italiano pizza
"Everything is perfect about this pizza, from the garlicky roast pork to the tender broccoli rabe and the sharp Provolone. It's all baked to a crisp, golden brown, a South Philly guy's roast pork dream."

Duck confit potato skins
"Topped with bacon, duck confit, sour cream, and Gruyère and then deep-fried, these loaded spuds are comfort-food perfection from one of the best pub's in town. They're only served after 5 p.m., so make sure to go then."
Thịt heo kho tiêu
"The cooks at this Vietnamese haunt in Chinatown stew the most meltingly tender pieces of pork belly in a clay pot. Ask for it smothered in extra black pepper sauce."
Szechuan twice-cooked pork
"This Chinatown favorite serves some of the best, most mouth-watering, lip-tingling twice-cooked pork in the city. They thinly slice the chewy skin from the pork belly and toss it in a fiery pepper-studded, fermented black bean garlic sauce."
