A cold northeastern October means that you want a nice warm dinner. At Thaiphoon @ Pentagon Row, we have just the dish for you: Crispy Pork Belly & Chinese Broccoli. Pork is great for colder days and all the spices of the dish will help warm you, as well. This dinner is stir fried in a garlic sauce.
Pork belly is common in Asian cuisine, and for good reason. The fatty meat is typically even more delicious than bacon, if you can believe it. The meat has a deliciously crunchy skin.
Chinese Broccoli is not just a side dish to this entree: it’s a star in its own right. This isn’t your typical broccoli, though. Chinese broccoli is a flavor-packed leafy vegetable that pairs wonderfully with the pork belly and garlic sauce.
We have a full list of wines and cocktails that would go amazingly with this dish. A nice riesling would pair well as it is so sweet and generally goes well with pork. If red wine is more your thing, have a glass of pinot noir that is always a wonderful food wine.
This dish will give you a good taste of what Thai cuisine is like. Our atmosphere will also help make your dining experience warm and authentic, just like it should be.
