This NYC Chef Just Made A Braised Pork Belly White Castle Slider

Just when you thought sandwiches can’t get any better—the newest episode of the FOODBEAST-produced series For The Love Of The Slider claps back with a brand new episode! This time, we find FOODBEAST host Geoff taking to the streets of New York City for the series’ next chef/custom White Castle Slider spotlight.


Er, should I say, 2nd City. Chef Jordan Andino has made a lasting mark during his time amongst the NYC cuisine scene—with multiple television appearances under his belt, this young culinary creative is making waves with his fusion of Filipino and Mexican cooking techniques in his newer restaurant called 2nd City. Andino considers the 2nd City restaurant to embody a visual and atmospheric representation of his own personality, even when he isn’t present.



We of course needed to see what his take on the White Castle Original Slider would look (and taste) like. Andino’s been a fan of the sandwiches ever since his father took him to the restaurant for his first bite while on a road trip up to Toronto.

Getting into the 2nd City mindset, he conceptualizes a savory-sweet Slider that could fit right alongside the other craveable items offered at 2nd City. Nicknaming his fruit the “Amasian Slider,” it has:

  • braised and deep fried pork belly with a calamansi and miso glaze
  • red onions pickled in vinegar and sugar
  • fresh chopped scallions and sliced avocado



Soooo… when’s the next flight to New York..?
