Between chorizo burgers, pork belly bánh mì, and slow-roasted pork shank, this Filipino restaurant (originally from Silver Lake) goes the whole hog on, well, hog. The decadent protein shines differently in every dish, like lechon kawali fried to a crisp, or pork adobo cooked slowly with soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic. The star of the show, and Spoon & Pork’s signature dish, is the deep-fried patita, a massive hunk of meat doused in garlic vinegar and served over jasmine rice. It’s big enough for two—even if that “two” is just you and yourself.
