Extremely delicious. I love to fry these on their own lard. I then collect the rest to use it for other cooking, like fried eggs which are just divine. I also tried it in a mexican adobo, it was great.
This pork belly is so good! It’s very flavoursome & juicy. There is a lot of fat and not heaps of meat but that’s ok because it tastes so good.
We have it with rice or on sourdough bread with mustard & pickles.
Will buy again.
Translated from Japanese: I always order here with confidence.
The meat was firm and thick, and even with the extra fat, it didn't feel heavy in my stomach at all!
Translated from Japanese: Since it’s pork belly, it must be relatively fatty, but this was almost only fat and made me feel sick after I ate it.
I wish the store considered packing a product that is well-balanced in terms of lean and fatty parts.
Translated from Japanese: It's still very delicious, but this time I was sad because it was full of fat.
I bought this free-range pork because I was concerned about my health...
If there’s too much fat, you can use less oil when cooking, so you can order with confidence.
As the taste is very good!
