Thursday eats.

Picked up from the Korean grocery store on the way home.

As good as Chinese roast pork? Hmm, have to think about this one.

Chinatown Eats

Last Saturday. Smith and Kings. A play on their location. One of the “new” businesses revitalizing the neighborhood. Intrigued by their brunch burger.

Brunch Burger

Bacon Jam, Mixed Greens, Cheddar, Truffle Aioli, Sunny Egg, Deep Fried French Toast Bun. Breakfast Potatoes, or House Grits.

Not bad, Half sock off maybe? Too many things going on. Bacon jam was more like crumbled bacon than jam. But good to try.

Also tried a side of roasted pork belly.

Roasted Pork Belly

Now, you may ask why, when Nam Fong (famous for their Chinese roast pork) is but a few steps away, would The Mouse want to order pork belly? Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
