Bacon Cubed

Cube is a cute little restaurant and gourmet store on La Brea just a few blocks south of Pink's. I stopped by for lunch the other day and had a variety of dishes, most of which were fine, but I must sing the praises of the maple braised bacon, served with roasted cipollini onions and spaghetti squash. More a pork belly dish than a bacon, though it was cured, this sumptuous beast had a tasty layer of fat over the pink, transcendentally smoky meat. The sweet, maple glaze was perfect for cutting the fat. My latest pork passion.
