“If we ever took the pork belly bocadillo off the menu at Tavernita, people would kill me,” says Ryan Poli, the Chicago restaurant’s former chef who remains a partner. The crispy pork belly sliders are topped with apple jam, pickled red onions and arugula salad on a brioche bun. “The flavors are acidic, sweet and salty,” Poli says. “And there are a lot of textures going on.”
