Day 308: Eat $3 pork belly

July 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

The crazy-crowded, open-air patio at the Big Star gourmet taco house in Wicker Park beckoned me with its summery, hipster-like vibe all through winter. And now that the sticky/humid monster that is summer hath reared his ugly head, it was time to try it out.

Happy hour with classmates.  Somehow nine of us were able to squish into a booth, with my bum leg dangling off the side of a long bench like a now-obsolete cable antenna. $3 pork belly tacos, $3 Tecate and a smoky, semi-sweet margarita. I wouldn’t call myself especially carnivorous, but there is no doubt in my mind that juicy, tender, savory pork belly would be a strong contender for my last meal on Earth.

Food photography. Oh the glory.
