Bacon (yes, it’s everywhere)
Bohanan’s (219 E Houston, Ste 275): The serious Kurobuta BLT comes with heritage tomatoes; we don’t know about the lettuce.

Bellies
The Sandbar (200 E Grayson): Believe it or not, this fish house does bad-ass bellies.
The Monterey (1127 S St. Mary’s): Not currently on the online menu, but keep checking brunch.

Carnitas
El Chilaquil (1821 W Commerce): Get 'em by the pound with salsa and corn tortillas.

Charcuterie
Lüke (215 E Houston): Chef McHugh’s sausages and terrines are all house-made; watch for house-cured ham.
Bliss (926 S Presa): The prosciutto slicer alone is reason to order a platter.

Chinese
Kim Wah (7080 Bandera): Lacquered and lovely.

Chops
Perry’s Steakhouse (15900 La Cantera, Ste 22200): The Famous, mega pork chop is not just a gimmick — it’s actually good.
Bohanan’s (219 E Houston, Ste 275): The 26-ounce Kurobuta Porterhouse should surely be shared.
Frederick’s Restaurant (7701 Broadway, Ste 20): The Kurobuta Normande is a French take with apple and Calvados.
Tommy Moore’s (915 S Hackberry): A smothered source for the soulful. Pappy G’s Country Kitchen  (1210 Pat Booker, Universal City) is another.

Parts
The Monterey (1127 S St. Mary’s): Watch the menu for pig’s ears in bacony and other forms, along with cabeza.
Sichuan Cuisine (2347 NW Military): The sliced pig’s ear in chili oil is a textural challenge with cultural rewards.

Pizza
Dough (6989 Blanco): Hands down, the Pork Love wins this contest; get it with an egg.

Ribs
Two Bros. BBQ Market (12656 West Avenue): Cherry-glazed baby backs are a fave, but there are regular ribs as well.
Augie’s Barbed Wire Smokehouse (3709 N St. Mary’s): Get there early at noon; the pork ribs tend to sell out.
The Smokehouse (3306 Roland Ave): We like the gnawable pork ribs as much as the lamb version. Maybe more.
