The name of this small strip mall spot in Carson might leave you with several questions. Such as, who is Ethan and why does he want to boink my belly? Belly Boink—a reference to the cute little piggy mascot on the store’s sign—is the fast-casual sibling of Ethan’s, a very good Filipino spot two doors down. The specialty at Belly Boink is rotisserie meats, and though the menu is pretty short, the chicken and pork belly dishes here are nothing short of incredible. The juicy roasted chicken is shot through with soy and pepper, and the spice-stuffed lechon has crunchy deep-bronze skin that shatters like glass. Skip the bagged salad that comes with the combo plates and double up on their yellow Java-style rice and garlic rice. And, if you somehow have room for more pig, get the crispy sisig, made with lots of snappy, meaty bits, and a puckery vinegar dressing.
