After a few years as a food truck, Spoon & Pork has opened a brick-and-mortar on Sunset in Silver Lake. And the change has been great for them - this is excellent, interesting, and affordable Filipino comfort food. Like the name suggests, there’s a lot of pig-based things on the menu, specifically pork belly, served as nigiri, on French bread as a sandwich, or deep-fried in a rice bowl. Our favorites, though, are the chorizo burger, and the massive, fantastic patita, a slow-cooked-then-deep-fried pork shank served with chili vinegar garlic sauce. It’s a very special dish, and at $22, is roughly one-fifth of what you’d pay for the exact same dish at a bigger-deal restaurant.
