Well one can eat something for a long time before it suddenly becomes trendy. Ask any Asian or Latino person growing up in the 70s. Our parents cooked us uncured pork belly all the time. Heck I remember hiding my lunch at school so that the kids quit poking fun at me stuffing my face with lard.
So pork belly was that cheap and embarassing ethnic cut.
Now every fancy schmantz candle light, wine serving restaurant is serving. I even saw it being served in a Hilton the other day!
