Pork Belly Mystery at Sichuan Gourmet Brookline

I've worked my way through most of the consistently tasty menu at Sichuan Gourmet, but there's one dish that I regularly see other people eating,and I can't identify it on the menu. It's some sort of a pork belly dish, but it's definitely not Sichuan Double Cooked Bacon. I thought it might be what is called Steamed Bacon with Fresh Garlic Sauce, but when I punch that into Google images along with the restaurant name, I get pictures of thin slices of rolled up pork belly. The folks I see eating it are always Chinese, so maybe it's something not on the menu that I'd have to ask for in Mandarin. Whatever you call it, it looks super fatty delicious. I'm taking my Dad there (who has no understanding of Chinese food beyond hot and sour soup) on Father's Day, and I'd like to give this dish a try. I'm sure this'll be old hat to somebody on the Boston board. Here's a pic I found:
