Delius' crispy pork-belly appetizer will be the best pork belly dish you'll taste from a non-Filipino source. Requisitely crispy and crackly in the right places and as smooth as custard in the rest, these hog pieces could be mistaken by Pinoys for their beloved lechon and the Chinese for their siu yuk. Get this appetizer or the equally great duck confit, even after knowing that all entrées come with a soup or salad. Order the linguine or the salmon not because it will change your mind about pasta or salmon, but because doing so also entitles you to a free ticket to the Aquarium of the Pacific as a reward for choosing a sustainably sourced seafood dish. The rest of the entrées are fulfilled with land-based protein sources you've come to expect--crowd tested stuff such as flat-iron steak, grilled filet mignon and a braised short rib that would fall off the bone if the chefs didn't already remove the thing. A lamb shank is also braised, and an apple-fennel-goat cheese mix stuffs the pork chop. But the advertised "crispy skin" for its take on chicken marsala will draw you in--even if it doesn't include any sort of free-ticket-bribe.
