While fried pork belly is not on my usual go-to list, I went hog wild over the version at Peter Chang, the Rockville restaurant opened in April 2015 by the well-known Chinese chef. Served in a pretty bamboo cornucopia with accents of green scallions and cilantro, the irregular-shaped sections of lightly battered pork belly set off a shattering crunch after each bite. Note to self: This crispy pig-out is seriously better than a potato chip binge.
