BRAISED DUROC PORK BELLY

"Morsels does its unique take on Danish smorrebrod, which is essentially a sandwich with cold cuts. This comes with a Chinese- style braised pork belly, peanuts, egg and apple cauliflower kimchi. The eggs are like ramen eggs, with the yolk a little runny. Everything tastes wonderful together. My only gripe is that the portion is small."
