As part of Eater's first ever Chinese Food Week, chefs at six major Washington, DC restaurants that don't serve Chinese food agreed to make a special limited edition dish, served just this week. Every day we'll highlight a new dish. On deck today: Lacquered Pork Belly at J&G Steakhouse.[R. Lopez]
So far, we've seen Proof's duck and foie gras wonton soup, Graffiato's rock shrimp Chinatown-style and Ripple's duck fried rice. Now it's time for J&G Steakhouse and its lacquered pork belly with shallot confit in honey and ginger. Chef Philippe Reininger explains: "This dish was Inspired by the traditional lacquered roasted pork ribs. We used the traditional idea and added a shallot confit with honey, ginger and black pepper."
Want to get a taste? The noodles will be available for both lunch and dinner this week for $12. And stayed tuned to get a peek at the rest of our limited edition dishes from Smith Commons and Watershed.
