Best Use of Belly (2008)

TASTE OF WEST LAKE

The pork belly fancifully tagged "scholar su's pork" rules at TASTE OF WEST LAKE. Blocks of dense meat alternate with layers of wobbly yellow fat, sweet like butter, both braised forever in thick, sweet soy sauce. Named after a Hangzhou tourist trap, this walk-down Flushing café specializes in the provincial food of Zhejiang, just south of Shanghai.
