L.A.’s Five Best Pork Dishes


The last few years have been generous to local pork lovers, giving us dishes of legend like Nickel Diner’s bacon maple donuts, pig ears and trotters at Church & State, Fig’s bacon-wrapped bacon, Animal’s pork belly sliders, and a top-notch exploration of all things edible and porcine in Food GPS’s excellent “Dose of Vitamin P” column. Fortunately, the cult of “other white meat” appreciation isn’t just a short-lived trend, as the latest opened restaurants continue to yield their own innovations using pig and its parts. Follow us as we dive whole-hog into five favorite new takes on the meat at recently opened restaurants in our slide show of L.A.’s best pork dishes.
