While it’s located in Bellevue’s Belgate Plaza, Facing East is the antithesis of strip-mall dining. The reason you’re at Facing East is the pork burgers, for they are divine: unabashedly fatty, supremely musky, delicately spiced. The meat falls apart at a hint of pressure; the bun, a bland distraction in lesser incarnations, puts in work here as the dish’s backbone. It is impossible to eat just one.
