Many cultures around the world serve pork belly as a delicacy prepared in many fashions. In the Filipino food scene, the most popular way to cook their pork belly is to season and then deep fry (usually in a wok or wide pan). The resulting product, called lechon kawali, is a beautifully tender meat with crackling crisp skin and subtle hues of garlic and other spices. Understandably, it has become one of the most popular dishes at Filipino restaurants around the world, including our own lovely city.
