Lechon

Tastebuds

SF Weekly
No matter what part of the pig the waiters are slicing from, the meat comes out soft and succulent tasting vaguely of carnitas. You can dip a chunk in the sweet-sour pork-liver sauce that comes on the side, or ignore it -- the meat doesn't need additional flavor. There's a reason why Tastebuds' lechon is so well loved: the skin. Ruddy, translucent, and just a little sharp-edged, the skin is simultaneously crunchy and chewy, far from tough, and moistened by a thin layer of fat. It's a texture that's almost impossible to replicate at home, which is why so few people even try.
