When the weather cools, there’s nothing like a slow-cooked meat dish to warm you up
Lava Dining’s tacos are a great example of braising done right.
Anju Kimchi Ramen
Head to this popular modern Korean spot for a big, filling bowl of ramen with melt-in-your-mouth pork belly and the warming heat of some kimchi.

Cooked in a maple braising liquid, this big cut of meat is crispy on top and tender in the middle – perfect for anyone who has a big, meaty appetite.
Candela Slow Roasted Barbecue Pork Ribs
Asian five-spice powder and crushed Sichuan peppercorns bring some flavourful heat to this plate of ribs at this globally inspired restaurant in Mission.
Cibo Bison Cheek Calzone
