At an early-evening dinner meeting yesterday, I was introduced to lechon asado, Puerto Rican-style, which I understand is roasted suckling pig.
I am originally from the South/TX, and I've had pork throughout the pork region, in N.C., S.C., VA., GA., Mexico, and Central America, but this was an epiphany, some of the most succulent pork that I have ever tasted. I must've dreamed about it last night, because, when I awoke this morning, my pillow was moist from drool.
Any suggestions on where to find good examples in Chicago? Logan Square is preferred, since it's on my way home, but I'll go to Humbolt Park, hell, anywhere, in search of good and authentic lechon asado.
I have recipes on the way. When the spring thaw arrives, I think it's time to dig a pit in the backyard.
