Sweet pork belly sliders from Some Random Bar... literally
What's the best way to make people think your drinking establishment is a destination instead of just some random bar? Apparently one pair of booze-and-each-other-lovers thinks it's to literally call it Some Random Bar... so that's what they did with the old C.S. Finnegan's, where they're serving some sweet cocktails, PBR tallboys that come in paper bags (!), and eats from a former Four Seasons chef that include Crab Nachos, Twice-Cooked Oxtails, and these badass Pork Belly Sliders. Check 'em out below:
The sign out front is blank (seriously!), so it might be hard to find this brick-walled boozer...
... but once you do, sit down and order two things: one of their refined, old-school 'tails (this vodka-based Back Porch Lemonade's a good start), and the pasture-raised pork belly sliders.
These peerless bites of pork start with thick slices from the belly coated with a honey-cider vinegar glaze.
While the belly's burning, SRB starts toasting the exact opposite of what yours'll be if you eat here everyday: mini buns.
Next, the pig parts go down over some charred jalapeno relish, and a pile of strawberry-cabbage slaw goes down on the plate.
Finally, it gets topped with some gherkins, which you'll shortly be... um, jerkin' off of toothpicks so you can stuff this whole thing in your mouth.
These suckers are clearly a must-have, but there's so much other good stuff (free-range chicken wings, five-hour slow-roasted pork shoulder, chocolate-dipped bacon strips!), that you could literally order... waitforit... some random item, and be totally happy.
