Just another delicious lunch at Cafe Macs. As I mentioned before, one of the first things I do when I get to work is check what’s on the menu at our various cafes. Today, I saw pork belly…game over. I immediately knew what I was eating for lunch.
This was a delicious Niman Ranch pork belly seared and braised with herbs, onions, celery, carrots and white wine, topped with pickled watermelon radish. It was served over a Winter Root Vegetable Farro slowly cooked in white wine and herbs, with sautéed rainbow chard.
What was surprising on this dish was the rainbow chard. It had the right amount of bitterness to cut through the fatty unctuousness of the pork belly. Plus the pickled watermelon radish, which I’ve never had before, was excellent as well.
And come on…pork belly. Of course it was delicious.
