Then spread a small amount of the mayonnaise mix onto the tops and bottoms of the buns. Place 2 pieces of pork belly into each bottom and top with cucumber slices followed by a small amount of daikon and carrots. Then place the top of the bun, press gently and serve.

300 g. shredded tomato
5 medium tortillas
