Next up are the same same but different Crispy Cuban Roast Pork bites ($13++), which simply swap the beef for roasted pork belly. Now, calling it crispy roast pork is overselling it a fair bit, but it’s still a pleasant portion porcine to pig out on. The slow roasted pork belly doesn’t have the earth shattering rind we’ve come to expect from to our local roast pork (siobak), but the rind is instead charmingly chewy without getting frustrating. The fat has been very competently cooked, and a good deal of it has been rendered out, leaving behind just enough to lusciously lubricate the piquant pork.

Thanks for having us, Cuba Libre & Burpple!
