"The texture that Jimmy Bannos Jr. attains with this dish of fried pig's ear, crispy kale, pickled cherry peppers and fried egg is something you can’t find anywhere else. Crunchy, chewy, soft—the ears have three-dimensions."
"I love the texture of pig’s ears when they’re fried. This version, with crispy kale and pickled cherry peppers, renders them so light, I feel free to eat the whole bowl myself."
