Located behind a few buildings in the strip mall lies an interesting restaurant called Pork Belly Grub Shack. The name does imply the usage of crispy fatty portions of pork belly in its dishes. Due to its proximity to Sleep Train Arena, Pork Belly ends up being a convenient dinner before a Kings game.
Today, I ordered the Notorious P.I.G. which is a burger with bacon, cheddar, mixed greens (of which I omitted), and lemon pepper aioli. We also tried the pulled pork sandwich. The burger arrived piping hot on a deliciously toasted bun. The cheese sat in between two beef patties, topped with crispy bacon. The burger was DELICIOUS! The lemon pepper aioli went very well with the burger. The fries also came piping hot and were not over-salted. The pulled pork sandwich was also delicious, rich in flavor with tasty slaw filling. As you can tell, we did not opt to order items with pork belly during this visit due to the appeal of the items we did order.
Overall, Pork Belly offers an interesting menu filled with delicious flavors. Their use of lemon pepper aioli makes everything taste good. I did find that their pricing is a bit on the steeper side, costing about $20 for two people. Portion size and size of meal is good, but not spectacular. If you are willing to try some new flavors, even on a burger, then Pork Belly would be a great choice.
