Haven Gastropub: Crisp Braised Pork Belly

Executive Chef Greg Daniels loves pork. The menu at Haven Gastropub + Brewery in Pasadena features more pork dishes than any other meat. With an advanced notice, you can even order a whole roasted pig with three sides for dinner. But for now we’re here for the Crisp Braised Pork Belly (available during dinner), made with locally sourced pork and a Saison ale reduction, celery root puree, fennel, mâche, apple vinaigrette and topped with dijon mustard microgreens. And of course the microgreens are just for decorating.

Pro tip

  1. While you’re at it, why not have the entire pork experience with the Pork Rillettes; Porchetta di Testa; and the Berkshire Pork Shank.
  2. If you still have room, end the meal with the Haven Beer Float made with Samuel Smith’s Organic Strawberry Ale, vanilla ice cream, and two warm cookies.
